System integration/system migration

The MS-Consult system engineer integrates new computer system requirements into complex hardware and software systems. Our system integrators plan, install, administer, configure and maintain the complex IT systems. Other main activities are consulting and system analysis.

The term "migration" has many meanings. It can refer both to the changeover as a whole and to any adaptation process of individual system components included in it. For example, migration from one operating system to another usually also means or involves the migration of application software and data.

Migration goes beyond a simple update or upgrade and rather refers to a fundamental change in the software infrastructure. Migration strategies form the basis of a migration. Ideally, utilities, such as our smartXchange, are available for largely automated conversion.

Network concepts

Network architecture - network concepts
 

Creation of national and international network concepts, as well as implementation and support by our technicians 

Goals

  • Ensuring the correct functioning of the network
  • Definition of the operation of the software components in the network (e.g. VPN)
  • Identification of the workstations and servers to be connected and testing of the hardware based on the hardware and system requirements
  • Ensuring correct interaction with 3rd party systems (e.g. e-mail)
  • Development of a concept for data security
  • Identification of users and permissions

Preparation

  • Creation of a complete hardware inventory list with all PCs, laptops, servers, printers, fax machines (incl. IP addresses).
  • The network shall be documented in a Visio Chart.
  • Creation of a user list

Implementation

  • Checking the hardware and system requirements
  • Testing the network
  • Checking the installation of the workstations and connection to the server

Documentation

  • Network installation documentation
  • Documentation of the installed workstations of the servers
  • Documentation user list
  • Documentation of support cases

Application analysis

Find resources - simplify processes

The application analysis for your software infrastructure represents an important inventory from which we jointly develop an individual concept for your requirements.

Goals

  • Determination of the implementation of all business processes in the areas of ERP, CRM, Fibu
  • Definition of the required software adaptations
  • Definition of the adjustments of documents, forms, reports, evaluations and templates

Preparation

  • Relevant core processes are set up and described per department
  • Screenshots of the current system are required for the purpose of visualization of the processes
  • Sample printouts are generated for all documents to be printed (receipts, forms, evaluations, reports, templates, etc.). Desired changes can be sketched directly on the documents by hand.

Implementation

  • Core processes are discussed and analyzed per department.
  • The implementation of the core processes with Sage 100 is determined.
  • Adjustments to be made in the course of process optimization are discussed in detail.

MS-Monitoring

We monitor all systems, devices and applications on your network using the following technologies:

  • SNMP: out-of-the-box and customizable
  • WMI and Windows Performance Counters
  • SSH: for Linux/Unix and MacOS
  • Flows and Packet Sniffing
  • Ping
  • HTTP queries and push data
  • SQL
  • and many more 

Rely on our monitoring on a daily basis. We use it to monitor their local networks, Remote connections, servers, websites, devices, URLs and much more.

Companies today are dependent on their network. Data is exchanged and managed via the network. As the basis for communication, it represents the backbone for all business processes. Bottlenecks or failures can have a lasting impact on your company's success. Continuous server and network monitoring lets you quickly identify and rectify problematic situations before they become a serious threat:

  • Avoid performance bottlenecks and deliver better quality service by being proactive.
  • Reduce costs through on-demand purchases and increase your bottom line by minimizing downtime.
  • Relax: as long as you don't receive any warnings from us, you know that all monitored components are working as they should.

Our monitoring has more than 200 sensor types for all common network services (e.g. Ping, HTTP, SMTP, POP3, FTP, etc.). These sensors each consist of a measuring point that monitors a specific aspect on a device - e.g. a URL, the network traffic of a network connection, a port on a switch or the CPU load on a computer. For optimal monitoring, about 5 to 10 sensors are required per device.

Notification of any failures is sent via e-mail, SMS or pager even before your users notice them. With increasing runtime of the monitoring and thus improved monitoring and optimization, the error messages for you and your users are reduced.
