Gone are the days when a workplace was merely a physical space; today's connected work environment has blurred the lines of a physical office setup. While on the one hand, the distinction between professional and personal life is constantly dissolving, on the other, workplace mobility is transpiring as the hallmark of a successful business organization.
“Today, everyone agrees that the work does not stop when the clock strikes 5:00 PM,” says Michelle Rudnick, president of PC Solutions & Integration (PCS). “Thus, neither can your network.” Therefore, every workspace needs to undergo a smooth transition from wired to wireless network infrastructure to achieve optimal performance and efficiency. “The flexibility of network access while on the road facilitates a more collaborative, efficient, and responsive workforce,” remarks Rudnick. Along with that, the use of a wireless network also enables companies to avoid the costly process of setting up cables inside buildings. This is where PCS cements their foundational stone. With numerous multi-certified engineers, PCS can design, implement, and manage a custom-fit network infrastructure “that reaches beyond your organization’s doors.”
PCS is a certified minority/women-owned business, and single-source provider for a company’s every IT need. In an interview with CIO Applications, Rudnick shares her insights into how PCS utilizes their expertise in cybersecurity, desktop computing, networking, data center, storage, voice and video premise, and best-of-breed cloud-based products to offer out-of-the-box managed IT solutions and end-to-end services for organizations of different sizes.
What are some of the critical challenges in the data center space and how is PCS effectively addressing those issues?
Within enterprises, the demand for greater business agility coupled with the sustained effort to reduce costs exerts enormous pressure on all things IT, especially the data center. PCS assesses these problems, designs and deploys the most apt solutions to overcome the challenges. PCS’ engagement does not end there.
Our goal is to achieve peak performance in the data center space
After implementing the solution, PCS provides additional support to further secure the company’s business-critical data. Robust data and network threat prevention and a rapid response system form the core of PCS’ data center solutions. Security is not a product, but a process and PCS’ network security strategy is manifested through the implementation of security hardware and software, which works together to improve security parameters. Over the past two decades, PCS has developed a proven track record of successful implementations in the cybersecurity realm.
Our goal is to achieve peak performance in the data center space; we are not there just to provide maximum mobility, but also build a solution that is advantageous to an organization, irrespective of the number of locations they operate in. Whether the employees are in the office, at home, or on the road, PCS wants to make sure their performance is maximized at all times.
Please walk us through your data center solution on the basis of its methodology, features, and benefits involved?
While continued growth of a business is the end game, most CIOs are bogged down by the additional expenses and limited real estate for expanding their data center. PCS effectively addresses these concerns through their data center virtualization solutions. Many of the businesses have now come to realize that network virtualization is the silver bullet. By virtualizing the data center, one can significantly reduce the burden of costs on facilities, power, cooling, and hardware, simplify administration and maintenance, and get a greener IT profile by maximizing the server resources. On top of that, PCS offers comprehensive data security parameters. The company employs a solution wherein you can protect data using secure and encrypted methods that will limit access to employees without the appropriate permission.
