Your experienced partner for putting the cloud to work

Day-to-day workloads have never been so demanding. And finding the right cloud solution for your organization's workloads can be difficult – especially when you’re trying to align a cloud strategy and business outcomes among stakeholders and internal processes. Internal IT increasingly lacks the capacity and skillsets to evaluate the multitude of options, define and sell a cloud strategy internally, and migrate from the current to future state.

We know that there are multiple, diverging paths to the cloud. Our enterprise service delivery experience, coupled with our track record of cloud implementations, enable us to assess your workload and application environment and create a cloud strategy that’s right for your business.

Automate IT service delivery for greater efficiency and responsiveness

We are in a new era of personal empowerment. With mobile device proliferation, users expect quick and easy access to IT. When this doesn’t happen, business units bypass internal IT to procure their own productivity tools, applications, and development environments. It’s time to reclaim internal IT and effectively evolve to a services-oriented delivery model to ensure relevance.
Datalink assists with planning and executing automation, orchestration, and day-to-day monitoring to ensure IT services are aligned with your business needs.

  • Enhance performance in processing daily organizational and process tasks. 

  • Maximize physical and virtual resources. 

  • Automate tasks to deliver IT services quickly and efficiently.

Position your organization for success with ITaaS

The expectations for IT are shifting – and IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) is proving to be more valuable than ever. Advantages range from business agility to reduced costs to increased security. But how do you effectively migrate your technology, people, and processes to this new model?

Datalink can help you discover a viable roadmap to ITaaS that optimizes your investments and improves manageability in a multi-step process:

  • Establish an infrastructure foundation (virtualization, private or hybrid cloud, convergence)
  • Define your service catalog, align policies with business units, and create an IT self-service portal
  • Assist with automation, orchestration, and monitoring
