A secure, reliable and scalable IT infrastructure is the backbone of an organization. IT infrastructure and operations is one of the biggest cost centers within internal IT, but at the same time, it also offers the greatest scope for helping an organization achieve business agility, as well as for cost reduction and efficiencies. A recent study by Gartner outlines that IT infrastructure and operations accounts for more than 60% of total IT spending worldwide. With increasing pressures from business in terms of optimizing costs, yet being flexible, reliable and scalable, it is imperative that organizations be able to cut the clutter, reduce complexity and adopt an utility model in terms of their IT infrastructure if they have to stay competitive in the market. Today's IT infrastructure needs to be more agile than ever to support new and emerging computing trends, such as private and public cloud infrastructure, green IT, mobility, consolidation, virtualization and social computing. IT infrastructure needs to be scalable and flexible to accommodate business continuity plans, and support compliance and regulatory demands, both current and future. The future lies in adopting a service based strategy to serve internal demands.

We believe that today's business environment demands simple and utility IT. We extensively use the Gartner Infrastructure Optimization Model in our customer engagements to provide a structured framework to assess and analyze IT infrastructure, and also to provide a customized roadmap. We believe that by reducing complexity, we free up effort and resources that can be better focused on core business initiatives.

We take great pains to ensure that we are ahead of the technology curve, so that our customers are provided with the best possible advice, gleaned from our real world experience, for new technology adoption. We provide a combination of onsite consultancy and service delivery to remote management that can help you to cut complexity, achieve operational excellence and optimize costs, thereby resulting transformation of internal IT to align with business strategy.


At the heart of our infrastructure consult ing is a sound, tested methodology that aligns with established best practices such as ITIL. This ensures that we align IT services with business needs, and serves as a baseline to plan and implement as well as demonstrate compliance and measure improvement. .

The fabric of the future

In the coming year and beyond, cloud will move from being at the horizon to the enterprise doorstep. One of the most important shifts that we will see this year is the emergence of the cloud as an omnipresent fabric that delivers data - both personal and enterprise, across an entire range of computing devices. The computing device will become merely an access mechanism; a window, while the intelligence will be delivered by the cloud - either a personal or an enterprise cloud, which again could be public, private or even hybrid in architecture.

One size does not fit all

On the flip side, all too often, cloud is seen as an “all or nothing” solution. However, the reality is that on-premise infrastructure is not going away anytime soon. A pragmatic adoption is the need of the hour, one that involves a careful evaluation of existing IT infrastructure and business needs, both current and future. Thus, the future is most likely hybrid for most businesses. While a few “born in the cloud” organizations can run all their IT off the cloud, most businesses will benefit from an optimal mix of both on-premise private cloud and public cloud.

Preparing for cloudy weather

The question of “Is the cloud ready for the enterprise?” is now being replaced by “Is my business ready for the cloud?”. There is no magic wand that one can wave : every organization needs to undertake a formal and structured assessment of their business needs and IT roadmap. As in every aspect of business, there is a cost associated with every benefit. Only a thorough understanding of these factors can help to evolve a successful cloud adoption strategy.

Productivity is one of the most misunderstood words today. While it had simple connotations in a machine driven era, a digital, mobile and cloud connected world has given rise to a “productivity paradox”. Moore’s law has ensured that computing power has increased exponentially at lower incremental costs, workforce productivity levels have not mirrored this trend. This has even been the subject of an MIT case study, which has highlighted the average person’s disillusionment and even frustration with technology.

For most businesses, technology is a key asset — it gives employees the tools they need to stay productive. With an increasing proportion of workforce being engaged in some kind of information handling – the so called “information worker”, the need for technology to be able to positively and measurably impact technology has never been strident as before. However, the increasing complexity of technology – rapid advancements, equally rapid obsolescence and feature sprawl has made it more and more difficult for people to utilize technology to the fullest extent possible.

Why is information worker productivity important?

Every employee in an organization is expected to deliver a certain level of job output that would match one’s perceived skill levels. But it has been revealed through numerous studies that there is a mismatch between perceived skill levels and individual job output of a typical employee. For instance, one of the biggest barriers to productivity has been the time wasted by knowledge workers in searching for information. While today’s software tools boast of near artificial intelligence and features such as natural language query, the reality is that they are sadly underutilized, or even worse, unknown to a typical end user

Productivity is thus one of the most important levers for growth – for any organization, large or small. The importance of productivity cannot be emphasized enough:

  • Leverage the most valuable asset in an organization – human capital. Research has established that employee productivity is the single largest and most significant contributor to growth and competitiveness.
  • Get the most out of your technology investments – In spite of ever increasing technology investments, RoI has not been commensurate, nor tangible.
  • Rationalize costs – Cost control is central to being agile and focused on growth, in good times or bad times.
How Quadra can help?

Earlier, information worker productivity was about documents, spreadsheets and slides. Today, even the average Office user is exposed to analytics software and services, mobile interfaces and cloud based tools. As computing has become ubiquitous, so has the intrusion of work into our personal lives – sometimes to detrimental effects. In a connected world, customers expect responses in real time, and this places increasing demands on employees to deliver results in real time. How does one balance this need for instant gratification with the need to balance personal and work lives? This is where mobile and cloud software step in, and this is precisely where Quadra can deliver immense value to your organization.

End users often struggle to realize the power and productivity of new technology investments. IT is usually unable to convey these to the end users due to resource and skill constraints. Having observed this trend over several years of experience in interacting with customers, we have come up with well researched methodologies and content rich business productivity Workshops. These workshops are aimed at imparting the required knowledge and skills to information workers, so that they are fully equipped to take advantage of the latest technology investments. A key feature of these workshops are that they are completely customized to suit the profile and work style of the participants.

From an executive management view point, the training results in improved individual productivity and better team collaboration. Some key benefits that have been realized by participants from our unique and tailor made workshops are:

  • Find and use features relevant to one’s daily work
  • Locate, act and prioritize on increasing volume of email and data
  • Manage time and tasks more efficiently
  • Find, use and manage information effectively

Software licenses today are one of the most critical corporate assets an organization possesses. A multitude of vendors and complex licensing programs render effective software license management an intimidating task, even for experienced IT professionals. Inability to manage software license assets can also quickly turn into a liability, as almost every software vendor today routinely enforces audits to verify compliance with their licensing policies.

We draw upon 15+ years of deep experience in working with software publishers and insights from working with a wide range of customers – right from the largest businesses in India to small and medium organizations. As business models increasingly turn to the cloud, licensing has also got more complex, given that publishers are struggling to find a balance between monetizing their existing business models, while ensuring that they are competitive and flexible in a cloud world
