Consulting and Advisory Services

cloud storage

DSS’s consultative approach provides a true end-to-end solution.

We take the time to listen to you, and we analyze your needs before designing a solution that addresses each one of them. The same technologists who design our solutions are also skilled practitioners who stay to implement them. The engagement is not done until your problem is solved entirely, and if another issue arises, we are only a ping away.

Advisory Services

Our advisors leverage over 3 decades of experience, multiple industry certifications, and a network of relationships to increase client satisfaction. We assess client input data and discover patterns to provide strategic technical insights into methods, design, development, strategic planning, and execution of prescribed solutions.

Assessments

DSS infrastructure assessments have been a key differentiator in our service offerings. Our clients benefit from fully transparent reporting of their storage infrastructure for data center migrations and capacity planning. Our extensive reports reveal unused resources, obsolete snapshots and backups, and performance bottlenecks, and recommend ways of optimizing infrastructure. We collaborate with key stakeholders to understand their environment, deploy our toolset, and review outputs together. This allows our team to create future-state roadmaps, develop CON-OPS, and deploy the right solution. We have the flexibility to manage your environment remotely or on premises. 

Strategic Planning

We work collaboratively with all impacted business units to facilitate continuity and integration with other business plans and strategies. You want to build new apps, migrate data, lift and shift applications, upgrade or replace core systems, or resolve any other technical needs? We can help.
