The mission critical systems architects

"If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur."

Red Adair

"Anyone can build a fast CPU. The trick is to build a fast system."

Seymour Cray

"You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do."

Henry Ford

"Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem."
"Do not make things more complicated than is necessary."

William of Occam

"Audendum est, et veritas investiganda; quam etiamsi non assequamur, omnino tamen propius, quam nunc sumus ad eam perveniemus."
"We must be daring, and search for the truth; for even if we don’t reach it we’ll come nearer to it than we are now."


The mission critical infrastructure

The infrastructure is the glue that holds the operational core of a business together. When the technology you rely on stops working, so does the business. It’s that simple.

The need for remote working and the difficulty of travel simply make the technology infrastructure more important than ever before. We all depend on it.

Those people who really understand and who can clearly communicate how and why to best utilise technology are essential to the survival and growth of the business.

Most businesses have people within their organisation who are capable of working in a multi-disciplinary manner. The trick is finding them and developing them.

"Stuff that works"...

If possible, it's best to mentor, educate and develop your own people to fully understand what your systems do, how they do it, and why they behave as they do.

Having the necessary level of knowledge in-house minimises risk and cost by enabling you to respond quickly without relying on scarce external assistance.

It's also important to have good working relationships with people you can trust to help when needed.

We encourage you to do things well for yourselves. We hope that you find the information provided here of use.

If you need further help then please call us and we'll see what we can do.
