How to Cut IT Infrastructure Costs and Increase Efficiency with Data-driven Insights 


Your IT infrastructure is your company’s lifeblood, so it needs to be protected from potential disasters. But how do you know if you’re doing enough? 101 Data Solutions Assessment service provides insights into how your business uses its data, where it’s stored, and if your backups are sufficient.  

Traditional IT analysis tools are limited and inflexible, with limited data collection, analysis and data-driven intelligence. This typically results in a lack of proactive/predictive insights to help IT organisations make better decisions about their infrastructure. They also lack the ability to customise, and usability can be hindered by heavy system requirements and the need for ongoing maintenance and management.  

Therefore, here at 101 Data Solutions, we embrace a new generation of IT analytics tools with no limitations. Instead, our assessments consist of standard or custom analyses that leverage sophisticated modelling to see actionable insights related to various cases like operational hazards, performance tuning and planning.  

How does the Assessment work?  

We provide a SaaS-based analytics platform designed to identify inefficiencies in the data centre and suggest ways to address them. We have the tools to analyse more than 200 metrics from virtual machines, physical servers, storage arrays, and network infrastructure to determine where inefficiencies may exist. As part of our in-depth assessment, we generate personalised reports on resource utilisation and how different technologies may remedy the situation. For example, if a customer is running up against a storage bottleneck, we can simulate how effective storage arrays from different vendors may be before the company commits. Our process helps address customers’ needs and accelerate the evaluation and procurement process. As a result, customers can accomplish their IT goals with more efficient IT infrastructure planning and procurement.
