Positive Business Outcomes

Competitive Agility is at the Core of Your Success

To compete effectively, businesses must be agile enough to meet consumer demand and keep pace with the competitive landscape. Organizations increasingly manage IT infrastructure projects to achieve desired outcomes – clearly defined end goals designed to achieve a specific, measurable result. Although outcomes are unique to each organization, one universal characteristic is that technological innovation and modernization can help organizations meet these expectations.

Is Modernization helping you achieve your outcomes?

Organizations looking to modernize their IT infrastructure frequently need assistance building an effective IT infrastructure that combines a mix of new and legacy technology. Mission-critical legacy applications often need to be maintained, while aging technology needs to be modernized to stay competitive. Cover-All’s team of IT experts will get to know your business objectives and evaluate the best mix of technology, including Cloud, Mainframe, and Servers, to help you design and manage an IT infrastructure that will help achieve your desired outcomes.

Improve Customer Experience

The most successful businesses have one thing in common, they offer exceptional customer experiences (CX). Technology has become pivotal in achieving higher levels of CX.  In order to achieve desired outcomes, IT transformations must factor in all stakeholders while ensuring the end users are the primary focus.  Application-driven CX can give your business a competitive edge; yet, if the infrastructure designed to support that application limits response times, for example, you will not achieve your desired outcome.

Updating your IT infrastructure to take advantage of leading-edge innovation can enhance your CX while improving security, regulatory compliance, and productivity. However, major technology initiatives, like implementing new enterprise systems, can disrupt an organization without strategic technology roadmap planning.  Cover-All works with clients to develop strategic technology roadmaps that meet unique business needs.

Improve Customer Experience
  • Deliver a seamless user experience by building an IT infrastructure that combines mission-critical legacy applications with modernized technology to meet consumer expectations.
  • Achieve strong customer relationships with a technology infrastructure that enables you to respond quickly and more effectively to customer needs while keeping pace with industry and market demands.

Grow your business

Is your IT infrastructure helping you to stay on track with your objectives, or is it consuming so much of your time that it is hard for you to focus on what really matters – growing your business? Let us help you build and maintain your IT infrastructure so you can get back to your core business.

Reduce Service Delivery Costs

If you are like most businesses, you need to control costs to stay competitive. Let us help you build efficiencies through IT systems performance and capacity planning to help you achieve your growth objectives while making the best use of your IT capital and operating expenses.

Red Hat® Open Shift® and IBM Power Systems™ can help you secure sensitive data and workloads and deliver consistency and simplicity across the enterprise.
  • Run mission-critical applications and host sensitive data on-premises with a multicloud strategy.

It offers the flexibility of the public Cloud and allows the movement of information between private and public services.
  • Ensure compliance with IBM Cloud® for Financial Services, which has pre-configured controls based on industry standards and country regulations that reduce financial institutions’ overall compliance risk.

The Server: IT Infrastructure Engineered for Control & Security

Servers, including Power Systems, IBM i and AIX, are powerhouses that can help to modernize your IT infrastructure. Certain mission-critical workloads are best managed by servers you own. They enable you to upload and download faster and offer complete control over the system setup and backups to meet your specific needs. Modern servers give you the power to respond to business demands faster, protect data from core to Cloud, streamline automation, and maximize availability and reliability.

Cover-All helps clients efficiently and securely modernize their on-premises infrastructure by moving to IBM’s POWER Servers, enabling them to extend their infrastructure and accelerate the deployment of new workloads.

Modernize applications to maximize value from data

  • Integrate new cloud-native services to innovate with existing applications.
  • Build once and deploy anywhere for optimized workload placement.
  • Access and analyze data faster to accelerate time to market.

Automate operations to improve productivity

  • Automate, modernize, and manage manual infrastructure tasks so teams can focus on higher-value projects.
  • Choose flexible consumption options with built-in cost optimization.

Maintain Security and Compliance Standards

  • Safeguard data with workload isolation and platform integrity from processor to the Cloud.
  • Simplify protection without impacting performance using transparent in-memory encryption.
  • Prepare for cryptography advancements such as Quantum-safe Cryptography and Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE).

The Mainframe: IT Infrastructure Engineered for Big Data & Security

The Mainframe is the powerhouse of mission-critical workloads with significant performance and security requirements. For organizations that utilize Mainframe computers, their business outcomes are firmly dependent on their successful operation.

When organizations strategize the future of their IT infrastructure, they need to consider that the Mainframe can work in conjunction with other servers allowing companies to utilize the Mainframe as a data warehouse or transaction processor. Regardless of the right setup for an individual business, the Mainframe remains much more stable and secure than a server cluster. Cover-All’s team of Mainframe and IT experts are committed to helping clients achieve their outcomes by building the optimal IT infrastructure to meet their goals.

Improve Customer Experience

  • Create a seamless experience with integrated technology. Today’s version of the Mainframe computer is equipped to handle the speed and security of high-demand processing but also can integrate with Cloud applications giving companies unprecedented flexibility when delivering exceptional and seamless customer experiences.
  • Access to highly trained Mainframe expertise enables you to deal with the severe shortage of Mainframe skills in the marketplace, which can affect both the operation of your Mainframe and your customer experience. Cover-All Managed IT Services hires and trains Mainframe personnel to manage and support the Mainframes for their largest clients. This shared resource pool has become a valuable asset for our clients.

Maintain Security and Compliance Standards

  • Unmatched security with IBM z Mainframe that encrypts data at light speed, which is a game changer in terms of cyber security.
  • Identify potential tampering and quickly encrypt the programming interfaces that tie together applications and services.
  • Storing sensitive data-at-rest on an IBM zSeries provides encryption protection against potential exposure, as long as its encryption key is secured.  This level of encryption is an attractive option for a company as part of its data loss prevention plan.

Achieve Financial Goals

  • Decrease capital costs: The total cost of ownership (TCO) of the new generation of Mainframes is lower than ever.
  • Decrease operational costs: Businesses will also see their software costs decrease as they invest in newer Mainframe technology.
  • Decrease labour costs: When analyzing cost savings, many companies fail to anticipate the additional cost for IT staff to maintain a server farm which is often more expensive than the cost of Mainframe hardware and software maintenance. In some cases, the additional cost of manpower eliminates savings, making the Mainframe a more attractive option.
  • Decrease infrastructure costs: Mainframes require an extensive infrastructure to host and maintain them, and increasingly, businesses are turning to Managed Services Providers (MSPs) to host their Mainframes in a purpose-built Data Centre, further reducing their capital and operating costs.
