Let’s Do the IT Time Warp… Again!

There is a paradigm shift happening in IT.  Today we are in the midst of the largest changes to how we work in infrastructure in 15 years. Welcome to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) ! Veracity Consulting is right there in the middle of it all, advising our customers on how to jump to virtualization and/or Cloud services.  We answer questions like:

  • When is the best time to make the jump and which solution do we choose (cloud or virtualization or both)?
  • The best (cost-effective) path to make the shift/change to the cloud and/or virtualize.
  • How do we make this happen?

Let me to tell you how Veracity Consulting can help you today, be prepared for tomorrow…

You Need to Know the Difference

What exactly is the difference between the “Cloud” and “Virtualization”?  They seem to go hand and hand, right?  Both were developed to streamline the use of technology resources. Both simplify processes. Both increase efficiencies. Both have the same goal – to reduce the costs associated. Our clients need to understand these differences and how it relates to their situation. Our Veracity Consultants will help you with the differences and allow you to make the right choices.

The Cloud

The Cloud is emerging as an extension and in some cases an alternative to the owned data center concept.  We know it and our customers know it.  It’s another way of deploying and using technology to improve efficiency, new product time-to-market, and of course—to save money.

No one questions that the cloud is now a practical option for data management, new development or production support options.  But company leaders are now looking at infrastructure assets from a resource management view. Now we can “scale” according to workloads or projects and support according to need.  Scale up and down accordingly. This allows us to have the best resources available at all times and allowing IT teams to be very agile.  This ultimately translates into a cost savings for enterprise infrastructure and other IT teams.  Welcome to 2014 IT management!

Infrastructure Transformation


For the past 15 years or so, technology was about on-site solutions. As technology progressed, so did complexity—some of it needed and some of it not. The technology industry, determined to deliver improvements, began to give customer’s features they just didn’t want or use.  Technology started to get in its own way by driving up enormous costs and being too complex. Companies needed to squeeze every ounce of usage out of their existing technology before they bought again.  Enter the Cloud…there is a better way.  Lets simplify!

The cloud is as much about the changes in how technology will be consumed as it is about the technology itself.  You must have a reliable and trusted advisor with insight into the market, relevant business models, and an expert understanding of “infrastructure transformation”.

You need advisement and we want to give it to you. Your Veracity Infrastructure Consultant can give you the understanding you need to make the right decisions for today’s technology and help you with your future IT infrastructure model.

You — the customer — are now looking for answers on where the industry is going. You want to know “what are the emerging technologies that will enable you to move your product faster to market?” And lets not forget about SLAs and security. At Veracity Consulting, we not only can advise you on each of these, we will do the work of security assessment, migration planning, and support for you.

We understand that there is a cost factor too. We know you need to be conscious about that and we can identify the excess – the extra features you aren’t going to use.

Here at Veracity Consulting, our infrastructure architects work to understand the customer’s business on every level. It’s our job to identify opportunities that are going to help you transform the way you do business.  For us it’s about solving complex problems, and becoming a key, trusted member of your IT team.

Trustworthy = Veracity

Our consultants can offer insight to the industry, research the necessary alternatives, all while keeping an eye out for the pitfalls.  We want you to know who makes it easy to purchase from, what are the logistics involved, and who has the best support.  We tell you the truth!   Our consultants have delivered success, time after time, so they know!

At Veracity Consulting, we want our customers empowered to facilitate change.  We will help you determine which workloads are best served on-premises and which ones are best served by the cloud. This type of analysis of alternative workload models open up alternative business models to you.  It allows you to convert those types of capital expenses that used to be associated with acquiring hardware into an operational expense or service fees associated with the service provider. And that translates into – cost savings!

Your Veracity Consultants goal is to advise and help you learn to make the right decisions in this new consumption-based future.  We have the cloud and infrastructure experts ready to help.  Call, email, or tweet us today!

At Veracity Consulting, service and satisfaction of our clients is our top goal. If you have questions, please speak to a member of our team today!  We look forward to hearing from you.
