Specialised systems integration

“Systems integration” and “systems integrator” used to be catch-all phrases for just about any IT service offered outside the corporate ICT department, and it was common for enterprises to outsource all their requirements to one vendor.

These days, the complexity of the IT landscape has driven specialisation in the systems integration market, and savvy companies are looking to systems integrators to develop solutions for key business areas including mobile device management and bring your own device (BYOD), cloud deployment and more.

Mobile device management has been described as “the current single most disruptive force in enterprise computing” and it presents a major challenge for CIOs and the ICT department.

The potential for business damage caused by security breaches on mobile devices, or the loss of critical data from rogue devices not under corporate management but nevertheless used for business, is substantial.

With the ever-changing landscape of devices and apps, few if any ICT departments can invest the time in keeping current in order to truly secure the enterprise.

Transitioning services to the cloud is another area of specialisation which is moving so rapidly it’s hard for corporate ICT departments, particularly those of small to medium enterprises (SMEs), to stay up-to-date. While many organisations have put their toes in the water with Software as a Service such as Salesforce or Office 365, and many also have embraced virtualisation, a lot can struggle with the next stage which is a truly integrated approach to moving appropriate workloads to the cloud.

All the major vendors have mobility, BYOD and cloud solutions, and there are many point solutions too – such as smart cards to protect access to corporate data from outside the corporate firewall.

Engaging with a systems integrator gives you two advantages, the benefits of which cannot be overstated:

  • You get access to a deep knowledge of the current ICT landscape, available hardware and software solutions and real life experience of what has worked – and failed – for other organisations
  • You can architect, design, deploy and manage an environment through one supplier and multiple vendors
