Background

IT budgets are stretched thin though data demands and performance requirements continue to grow. To best deal with the imbalance, a careful network audit of existing IT infrastructure investments is vital to maximizing performance and managing costs. Business strategy is too often disconnected from IT environments, resulting in companies taking a less than optimal direction with infrastructure design. Companies that understand the current state of their networks, cloud options, data center sites and equipment are better prepared to maximize ROI before making future decisions.

What NEF Can Do

IT teams can rely on NEF for comprehensive telecom, cloud and data center audits that include a full analysis of existing infrastructure and contracts. NEF provides planning solutions with an expert review of the current landscape as well as recommendations on new ways to manage and/or augment existing infrastructure.

NEF’s mission critical audit, design and planning solutions give organizations vendor-neutral analysis of their IT infrastructure – and another set of eyes on the bottom line. NEF can often find savings through a thorough examination of options, careful definition of requirements and through NEF's unique relationships with the providers themselves.
