Service Options

Depending on the services coverage you expect from us, we can deliver our IT infrastructure managed services according to two possible models:

Complete managed IT support

Complete managed IT infrastructure services

We use only our own IT and human resources and efforts to keep your IT infrastructure and its components (networks, servers, virtual machines, etc.) reliable, highly-available, and secure.

Co-managed IT support

Co-managed IT infrastructure services

We strive to establish strong collaboration with your in-house IT team and/or your third-party cloud or security providers to jointly cope with IT infrastructure maintenance (e.g., adjusting risk management processes, performing regular security assessments, delivering regular reports on your IT infrastructure performance) quickly and efficiently.

If required, we can either deliver our cybersecurity services as a part of our IT infrastructure managed services, or collaborate with your in-house information security team or your third-party security provider to ensure that your IT infrastructure is highly protected from internal and external security threats.

How We Deliver IT Infrastructure Managed Services

Responsibility transfer

Stage 1. Responsibility transfer

We assess you current IT infrastructure design, talk to your business and technical stakeholders (or third-party vendors) to get the details on the configurations of your IT infrastructure components and available IT infrastructure assets, prepare a detailed SLA with a defined KPI system and agreed SLOs to ensure you get an adequate control over our support activities. Eventually, you offload the entire responsibility for your IT infrastructure to us.

Service delivery

Stage 2. Service delivery

ScienceSoft delivers either a full set of IT infrastructure managed services or maintains the reliability of particular components of your IT environment – depending on the cooperation model – and delivers regular reports.

Improvements

Stage 3. Change delivery

We support changes and improvements that can be implemented within your IT infrastructure to increase its reliability and flexibility, and further support you in change implementation.

 

Our Approach to Building Collaboration

We adhere to a multi-tiered approach to collaboration with your IT team or your third-party vendor’s team, and adjust it taking into account your business situation, objectives, and requirements. Due to our approach, the activities needed to maintain your IT infrastructure become less time-consuming and more cost-effective allowing you to stay within budget and focus on your key business operations.

That is how our collaboration may look:
