IT INFRASTRUCTURE AND INTEGRATION
Designing critical data centers and cloud environments, implementing IT infrastructure suited for business needs and operations
While cleaning up technological debt it is possible to introduce new systems, new architecture and platforms at the same time with the right methodology.
The foundations of all digitalization projects must be a stable but flexible IT infrastructure. However, the legacy systems introduced and kept alive during the last decade (or earlier) might have accumulated a serious amount of technical debts in many organizations. Therefore, the introduction of new solutions, the operations and security oversight of the existing systems are more challenging. It is getting more difficult to find specialist experts; more and more legacy systems are sticking out from the manufacturer’s support life cycle.
The introduction and integration of new generation platforms must be implemented in such an environment too. Factors such as availability and suitable capacity must be ensured even in extreme situations – some of which happened during last year. In addition to the technological “heritage” and the cleaning up of the accumulated backlogs, it is challenging but still possible to deploy new, innovative systems, architectures and platforms parallelly.
COMPLEXITIES OF AN INFRASTRUCTURE AND INTEGRATION PROJECT - HOW CAN 4iG HELP?
During the planning and implementation of a project, usually there are several external and internal requirements to be taken into account. The comprehensive understanding and professional interpretation of these are indispensable for the execution of successful projects:
- Customer needs (business expectations, schedule budget) and procurement conditions (value for money, availability, logistics),
- Legal regulations (GDPR, etc), institutional regulators (IT security policy, information security),
- Security: confidentiality, data integrity, availability; the reliability of the system: how can a critical system be designed from given building blocks,
- Operational and serviceability aspects,
- Development aspects: ability for integration, automatization capabilities,
- Technological: how mature is the chosen stack in its life cycle?
- The availability of technical/support competencies in-house and on the local/regional markets from service providers.

INFRASTRUCTURE WITH DATA IN FOCUS!
In IT, the role of main pillars has changed significantly even during the past decade. In the beginning, we worked with a small amount of data, a simple layer of application; thus, the emphasis was laid on infrastructure. With the second generation, when the complexity and quantity of data increased, came the “age of applications” where the application itself was the most defining component. Nowadays, data is essential to all application development and business innovation. Infrastructure and application are “just” tools for processing incredibly large data sets.
existing IT/SI players of the Hungarian market, 4iG Plc. belongs to the elite
category capable of independently performing complex tasks of an infrastructure
project due to our size, experience, and highly qualified experts. In addition to planning, implementation,
migration or optimization tasks, we undertake project management, quality
assurance and audit tasks in complex projects. During the implementation, the
most important aspects are: quality of work, safety and reliable operation. The
dynamic changes of business processes demand the periodical re-assessment of
the infrastructure serving them.
With our experience of many years, it is safe to say that we can help our clients plan complex data center infrastructures. We gained substantial experience in numerous projects to translate business and developer needs embedding them in the infrastructure. As in the case of a well-planned and built house, a considerable amount of cost can be saved in IT infrastructure and services on the operation side if an experienced team of engineers carries out the planning and implementation.
We believe that this major change in approach must be followed on the infrastructure side too. Thus we recommend solutions to our clients that ensure the best infrastructural and application environment for their data. It is not by accident that the central part of our portfolio consists of hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, new-generation, application-level monitoring solutions, IoT systems or even Software-Defined Networking (SDN). We believe that with our experience and approach, we can help our clients locate and secure their data in the best possible way. It is not a question of whether to build an on-premises, a cloud, or other solution, it is rather about where a particular set of data is best suited to be gathered, analyzed, processed and archived!
