IT infrastructure may be defined as a combination of software, hardware, network services and resources that are required to operate and manage the IT environment of an enterprise. It is usually an internal aspect of an organization and enables it to deliver IT services and solutions to its customers, partners and employees in a smooth, hassle-free manner.
Hardware comprises the physical components of an IT infrastructure such as personal computers, data centers, switches, servers, routers and all the other equipment required to support the functioning of devices and machines within the IT infrastructure. Facilities that are used to house, power and cool a data center may also be considered a part of the IT infrastructure.
Software refers to all applications used by a business for both delivering services to customers and internal functioning. It includes web servers, the operating system (OS), content management systems, enterprise resource planning, productivity applications and more. The OS is the most critical piece of software that manages the hardware and connects the physical resources to the network ecosystem.
Interconnected network components are imperative for establishing external and internal communication among all the devices and elements of an IT infrastructure. In other words, the network comprises all software and hardware elements required to enable security, internet connectivity, network enablement and firewall. It significantly reduces the risk of data theft by ensuring that the authorized personnel gets access to transferred and stored data only from strictly controlled pre-defined access points.

Data Center Operations
Once considered the showcase of IT, datacenters are now perceived as operational boat anchors considered a purgatory by IT professionals and a CAPEX money pit by the CFO and finance. The recent economic downturn and ensuing recession are to blame for this. In an effort to cut costs anywhere, executive management eventually turned their sights to IT and the glass house and told the CIO to find a more cost-effective approach to support the business. In this regard, outsourcing has been a logical alternative. Newk Solutions offers traditional professional services such as those depicted along with mature processes and methodologies that leverage its global delivery model to both drive down support costs for its customers while delivering against SLAs.
Today, we deliver these services in the context of a consulting engagement which take clients through an assessment exercise designed to align IT operations with business requirements that results is a more holistic view of IT resources. These are then further optimized using state of the art transformation approaches such as cloud computing, virtualization, legacy modernization and master data management which delivers resources on demand at significantly lower costs – which for some customers can reach as high as 75% depending on the size of their data center and assets involved.

The lack of a well thought out architecture can lead to inaccurate record keeping effecting customer satisfaction – and if not addressed – lost business.
