Before investing in IT infrastructure, due diligence is often required to ensure a project will meet its planned business purpose, end user requirements and budget. Infrastructure feasibility studies are a wise first step in advising network planners on a wide array of topics, from where to build a new office or data center location, to vetting the optimal site for a primary data center to choosing a secondary data center that best connects to multiple remote office/branch office.
Companies with current market information and a careful study of feasibility are better equipped to maximize ROI on infrastructure investments. Utilizing a third party resource for objective feasibility studies will provide critical insight into which assets, vendors and solutions will address business requirements.
