Architecture & Design
Most messaging applications are designed in isolation: one instance each of the sending and receiving apps. But can the design provide high availability? Will it scale up? How easy is it to migrate within the network? The best return on your consulting investment is to engage professional services early in the product lifecycle, during the design stage.
Security & Privacy
Do the terms HIPAA, PCI or Frank Dodd mean anything to you? How about Personal Clouds, Internet of Things or Vendor Relationship Management? Today’s IT systems require strong authentication, granular authorization controls, robust intrusion prevention and vigilant monitoring. The more interesting question is, what do tomorrow’s IT systems require?
Health Check & Operations
Is your messaging software out of date? Is the system nearing capacity? Are chronic issues going undetected? Would you know if any of these were true? Or perhaps you do know there’s a problem because your administration and support teams are beyond capacity and you are experiencing unnecessary production outages, personnel attrition or both.
