Enablement Services for Microsoft Active Directory

Microsoft Windows Server Active Directory Services (ADS) provides a robust platform for security and access management for enterprises and companies of all sizes. Integrated with Windows Server 2012 R2, Active Directory gives you out-of-the-box functionality needed to centrally configure and administer system, user, and application settings.

At the root of success for the deployment and management of Microsoft productivity and end-user tools is Active Directory. Whether you’re looking to more effectively manage end user devices, roll out new products like Microsoft Office 365, or move users to the cloud, you’re going to need to consolidate and optimize your Active Directory infrastructure. CompuCom offers a number of enablement services to help you overcome the key challenges surrounding Active Directory.

Cloud computing elicits different definitions from nearly every IT professional who has had time to go on record with an opinion. The future of the data center is being radically altered with the introduction of virtualization and cloud computing in the enterprise environment. This has led to a tremendous amount of confusion that can hamper the development of an effective data center roadmap.

We are not confused in our view of how these technologies will impact our clients, or what next steps are the best. CompuCom’s private cloud infrastructure can either be located at the customer’s premise or at a colocation facility.  We offer infrastructure utility computing models, which allow customers take advantage of pay-per-use computing and storage pricing.  In addition, we assist clients with their migration to the cloud through a full range of data center migration services such as assessments, data center move and application rationalization assessment and analysis, as well as ongoing management of cloud based-services.

Each organization’s virtualization and cloud migration strategy differs. However, the need to deliver improved business value by maximizing resource utilization and operational flexibility remains a common priority. Combining the processes and procedures built into our Integrated Infrastructure Management (IIM™) framework with powerful cloud-based lifecycle management tools from partners like BMC ensures that your data center architecture addresses the critical requirements of your business in an intelligent and cost-effective manner.

Our virtualization, cloud computing, and data center experts apply this framework to help you address such key questions as:

  • How to introduce virtualized environments into your data centers?
  • Can virtualized environments coexist with legacy systems?
  • What about external cloud resources…is it possible to develop a unified approach to managing all of these elements?

We work with you to assess and resolve these vital strategic, operational, and technological questions. Our solutions lay the foundation for a data center transformation road map that is optimized for your organization’s current and future requirements. CompuCom’s consultative cloud services are designed to support the full lifecycle of your new core enterprise computing environment including services for:

  • Discovery and assessment
  • Rationalization and transformation strategy
  • Service integration, transition, staging
  • Migration planning, and on-going platform management

As a logical jumping off point, CompuCom also offers a multi-tenant private Cloud Email service which includes Lync (supporting unified communications including voice and video) and Sharepoint.  CompuCom’s Cloud Email services offer clients a lower cost, more secure, option compared to on-premise email.

Ongoing support and management of cloud environments is more than merely provisioning and managing virtual machines. It requires the alignment of cloud services to business needs and efficient service delivery. CompuCom assists its clients in migrating to a flexible, controlled cloud that focuses on business intent, managing the evolution to the cloud and offering an integrated set of services based on intelligent, policy-based ongoing operations.
