Information Technology Architecture
Companies have four primary components to their IT infrastructure:
- Software: Operating Systems / Applications / Data
- Computing Hardware
- Voice Communications
- Connectivity (Internet bandwidth and point to point circuitry)
Risk management / disaster avoidance
for a business is not exclusively an IT infrastructure component, but is fundamental building block as a company builds and operates their IT architecture. It is the fifth component to an efficient, secure, redundant, scalable, and high availability infrastructure. Addressing these five components allows a business to focus on its core competencies knowing the building blocks are secure and managed.
Two advanced technologies are presently enabling companies to more efficiently manage their IT infrastructure:
- Voice over IP (VOIP) - This technology has been in marketplace since the early 2000’s, but only recently is being adopted by businesses of every size. The Nexus Group has been providing VOIP services since 2002.
- Cloud Computing - This is an emerging technology that involving moving physical servers and computer processing to other devices somewhere on the internet. The Nexus Group has been providing these services since 2008. The Nexus Group's value with these emerging technologies is efficiency gains that compare to national providers, coupled with the advantages of a local provider: better customer service, more customization options, local decision making, and a deeper relationship with our customers and their issues.
The Nexus Group is the only company in middle Tennessee that can singularly provide and manage all five components (Software, Computing Hardware / Cloud Computing, Voice Communications / VoIP, Connectivity, and Risk Avoidance).
