Systems integrators solve complex IT problems by using their in-depth technical expertise to combine hardware and software systems from multiple vendors into a single solution. Here are five areas that should be considered before hiring a systems integrator for your IT project:
1. Strategic thinking
Systems integrator look holistically at the big picture of your IT infrastructure to determine how all the moving parts fit together. They understand the specific system, and its most recent version, potential pitfalls and additional third-party apps.
Systems integrators are not employees of any particular vendor. Rather, they independently look at all their vendors, and the existing network they are assessing, and they determine which products, hardware, and software will integrate best into the IT environment.
Systems integrator engineers don’t just look at one part of the puzzle – for example how the storage system is designed. Rather, they look at how the storage system will integrate with other components along the network to ensure that the data can’t be breached.
System integrators select components and subsystems from multiple vendors to integrate into a “best of breed” solution for customers that meet their business requirements as well as security, cost and performance constraint. They typically have a business process in place to implement a project from start to finish. This process ensures consistent results according to milestones, objectives and activities.
5. Business Acumen
Systems integrators understand the big picture, including performance goals and targets that contribute to project success. The non-technical factors like protocols, project governance, implementation planning, etc. can derail a project even more so than technical challenges.
