IT System Integration Methods

Let’s face it:

The cloud solution is here to stay. All thanks to a blazing fast fiber Internet and cheaper hardware.

If you plan to build your own server at your office, it’s still commonly deployed.

It depends on the IT solutions you want.

On-premise setup is upfront more expensive than a cloud service monthly subscription. But, don’t forget you’ve to factor in IT maintenance cost for both setup as well.

It does not make sense to spend thousands of dollars to build an essential business solution like email.

You can get cheap yet robust and secure email solutions from Microsoft Office 365, Google Suite or even from web hosting provider. If your email user base is in hundreds or requires customization, then it’s cheaper to have your own email server.

On the other hand, there are significant advantages to having your own IT setup over the cloud. After all, your data resides in your office. It’s within your control.

Cloud or On-Premise System Integrations?

Not all cloud services are cheap. If you need a cloud Windows server to house & share an application (eg. accounting, HR), the long term cost can be higher due to extra backup storage and faster bandwidth.
For example,

Typical setup cost for an accounting server to be shared among 3-5 users. Backup is not included.

Option A)
On-premise IT setup (includes hardware, software, labor & 3 years warranty) : $5k to $8k

Option B)
Cloud server (eg. Azure or Amazon, excluding labor) : $300 per month x 12 months x 3 years = $10,800

Cloud or On-Premise System Integrations
In short, the type of system integration depends on the outcome you want to achieve. We provide a hybrid solution by combining both cloud and on-premise to work effectively.

How does this work?

All you need to do is define your outcome clearly.

And, tell us if you have any preference to keep certain data in your office or move to the cloud. For example, you may want to keep your password details in the office and place quotations in the cloud for your roaming salespersons.

With our solution, you simply access both your private and public clouds simultaneously.

In this way, you enjoy the agility and economic benefits of both clouds with on-premise IT solutions to achieve your outcome. Even if your office internet is down, your business is not entirely affected.

Role of System Integrator

We work together with your new or existing vendors to achieve your business goals. Your vendors specialize in their core solutions. They may not be very well versed in technology. For example, firewall, backup recovery or server virtualization.

Let’s say, an accounting vendor only provides software license and their software installation. Before your vendor can start work, you need a server that meets their software requirements.

This is when you need a skilled & experience system integrator (SI) company to get the IT infrastructure ready. Before we handover our part to you or your vendor, we’ll do a thorough test on our work first. With a systematic approach, we are able to resolve potential integration issues. Thus, reducing any misunderstanding.

Frequently Asked Questions

View the most frequently asked question to quickly find your answer or ask our presales

What is a System Integrator?
A systems integrator (SI) is a technology skilled company. We combines several computing systems for clients. These systems are hardware, software, networking and storage products from many vendors.
Are you able to manage my other vendors?
If you need us to be the single point of contact, we do charge extra cost for such project management. Because there’s time and effort involved when it comes to planning and coordination. Our sales person will be able to advise you accordingly.
If my other vendor has any issue, can they look for you?
If the issue is due to our setup and within our support period, we can assist.

But, if the issue is not related and requires our IT expertise, there may be extra cost involved.

Do you manage software customization?
No. This is not our area of expertise.
What’s your procedure when it comes to handover your work to the next vendor?
Since you engage your vendor, we prefer to handover our work done to you first. Next, we will run through the scope of work with you via user acceptance test (UAT). When all is well, our work considers done. You can inform your next vendor to carry on their work.
Why do we need maintenance plan as we can always call for adhoc support?
First, we do not do adhoc support. Likewise, many IT providers prefer not to do adhoc support as well. Because such adhoc support is very disruptive to our business and does not value add to your company.

Furthermore, adhoc support base on per hour charges. So, you may end up paying a huge bill for the troubleshooting.

Unlike adhoc support, we have guarantee response time. In fact, your IT problem resolves much faster. Because we already have the essential information on your IT infra. Best of all, you won’t get a heart attack for high bills due to fixed monthly cost.
