Infrastructure Audits and Reviews
There are two threads to an IT WLR infrastructure audit.
First, typically via interviews with senior managers, we ensure that we understand your business, its history,
its future goals, and the reasons for its current structure. Then, via interviews with a business-wide range of
stakeholders, we ensure that we fully understand how your IT infrastructure is used to deliver your product or
service, and to assist those working in your key support functions.
At this point, we often carry out employee surveys. These help us to understand internal user needs, along with
views on the quality of the existing IT infrastructure and the way it is managed and supported day to day.
“We don't simply do a technical audit, but survey staff to gauge their opinions towards the reliability of their
systems. Our aim is to ensure the customer is happy.”
(Stavros, IT WLR IS Senior Consultant)
The second thread is the technical audit itself. The IT WLR senior engineers who carry out the audit are all
qualified experts in the areas they explore and document. IT WLR people are well versed in all aspects of IT
infrastructure including server platforms, firewalls, LAN infrastructure, storage environments, WAN design and
related third party applications and hardware.
The value of our process lies in bringing these two threads together. As well as reviewing the technical health
of your current IT assets, we consider how well suited this infrastructure is to your business and its goals (bearing
financial realities in mind at all times).
We then work with you to decide which recommendations to implement. If required, we can plan, document and execute the
all or part of the implementation process.
