Zero Infrastructure Footprint (ZIF) Services
The Situation Today
Today’s businesses are trying to be more adaptable and flexible with regard to people, technology, and processes. However, attempting to do this through a rigidly constructed network poses a challenge in terms of scalability. In addition, a fundamental “optimize-maximize” change is brewing and these organizations are looking to optimize their IT infrastructure and support costs while maximizing end user experience.
This scenario has challenged IT services providers to provide and support an ‘anytime anywhere solution’ while keeping costs low — a solution that is low on infrastructure requirements and support but provides a seamless user experience — irrespective of a user’s location or type of device.
How HCL Can Help
HCL helps organizations identify lean or less critical sites that can be converted to a zero infrastructure (ZIF) site. Once converted, such sites have minimal network infrastructure in place and work on business broadband links while maintaining security and privacy requirements.
Our services include
- Consulting services: Assessment and planning services to identify potential ZIF sites, creating the strategy for deployment, and building a business case for potential savings.
- Deployment services: All activities associated with carrying out the actual migration of a site from traditional to the ZIF concept.
