Cost & Run Optimization

Infrastructure Modernization

Opportunities to modernize infrastructure service delivery are greater than ever before with the advent of cloud, automation, multi-sourcing, and other new service delivery models. IT must deliver infrastructure services that are high performing, scalable, on-demand, and cost efficient, but these capabilities are often impeded by technical debt, legacy systems, and a portfolio of data centers. Merger and acquisition events complicate these challenges further.

WGroup helps IT leaders move through an infrastructure modernization journey including physical consolidation, virtualization and converged architecture, standardization, automation, and ultimately a wide adoption of cloud services. We help clients achieve operational excellence, agility, and significant cost savings by modernizing the infrastructure environment and optimizing the run environment.

You need better, smarter, and more strategic infrastructure to meet your business requirements.

Operating Model Optimization

All our engagements begin with a 360° assessment of your service process and organization. It will enable us to identify where change can be most impactful and determine how to effectively utilize infrastructure to achieve the performance and efficiency you need to drive value for the business.

The most efficient IT operating model is one that is business outcome-aligned and focused on end-to-end service delivery. It should address the three biggest constraints facing businesses today: speed, cost, and time.
