  1. 1. Solutions Presented By: “Not your Average Geeks” Steven Moore - Lead Network Engineer - email: Steven Moore - MCP, MCSA, MCSE - Lead Network Engineer - email: NNT Solutions – A Microsoft Certified Partner 104 Carrington Park Dr Suite B Gainesville, GA 30504 Tel: (770) 535-0890 Url: June 3rd, 2010
  2. 2. Today’s Agenda • Who We Are – “Not Your Average Geeks” • The Perception • Defining The Pain, and How Much Does It Truly Cost you? • The Solution • Benefits • The Technology • Closing Thoughts • Q&A
  3. 3. Why us? And why the vision? •NNT’s founding vision and mission… accountability, attention to detail, and be Partner not a provider to our clients Our Proof… •We are the leading IT Solutions provider servicing the North Georgia area for over 9 years. •All major vendor certifications, including Military experience, specific to management and security. (Secret Clearance and high level management training) •Specialists in IT infrastructure management, planning and security •Have served over 2000 of customers •Continue to serve customers such as Albert International, Critical Components, Buford City Schools, Atlanta Inboard and much more.
  4. 4. The Perception... “Have you heard or said this before?” • “If it isn't broke, don’t fix it” – why worry or spend the money… its been running fine for years • I can operate fine without my computer system. • All we use our computers for is to check the internet • I’ve got a backup. – Yes I verify my back and take it offsite each day, because my employee says so. • If I lost my server tomorrow, it would be a little inconvenient… but I can survive
  5. 5. Defining The Pain… • Ongoing costs and lack of predictability – Costs too much to maintain IT systems now – Poor predictability for costs • Excess downtime – Lost productivity – Costs to fix – Management time and effort to resolve • Accountability – Who owns the problem?
  6. 6. Defining The Pain Continued… • Absolute dependence on technology • Unclear, defined cost of downtime (but known to you when it does happen) • Defined availability requirements (you know what needs to work but how do you tell if it’s actually working. i.e. Backups) • Lack of visibility into future resource requirements (most small businesses buy as they go) • Non-IT people reporting problems • No knowledge of Network as well as no documentation
  7. 7. Do You Truly Know What “DOWN” Means To Your Company? • The Obvious • Behind the Scenes – No internet – Client services & support – No email – Sales – No Web site – Productivity issues – No access Documents – No payroll – No access to Customer – No accounting or finance Management System at – No access to client data Corporate – No order entry – Phones not working… – No printing – No telephone (VoIP) – No access to files – No electronic communication
  8. 8. You Are Only As Strong As Your Weakest Link System Cost System Business Reliability Complexity Demands External Threats
  9. 9. “Because We Don’t Just Fix”
  10. 10. Example: Buford City Schools • The Server’s Hard Drive fails at 5pm Saturday afternoon – Staff is unaware all weekend of the problem. • Systems Admin finds out about the failure @ 8:30 Monday morning • System Admin can’t fix and panics, looks in the phone book and finds first available technician that can RESPOND!!! • A technician arrives that afternoon (hopefully) • The Technician’s first trip is to diagnose the problem, he then determines that the hard drive is 100% full, Data on server could be corrupted!!! • The technician didn’t bring a portable storage drive to move data off. • Technician has to leave to obtain proper tools. • Technician arrives and starts pulling data off, but Email Server is corrupt. • The technician restores service by Wednesday using tape backup. • Total Impact: at least 4 days.
  11. 11. How much would that have cost you? • Would you agree time is money? • 90% of small businesses think cost = Cost of tech / Repair parts • True: Repair parts and technician time does cost money… But more importantly: • Highest cost = downtime!!! • Simple formula: number of staff, times number effected, times their pay-rate, times the number of hours your system went down. • Plus: Catch-up time • Finally reputation to the customer… if you lost 1 customer, how much would that cost Bottom-line if you take into account the cost of downtime you see it cost you much more then the entire computer system itself…
  12. 12. Reality Check • Downtime effects your productivity – One hour of downtime for a $1 million revenue company costs $500 /hour – The average company in the U.S. experiences 2 hours of downtime per week $500/hour x 2 hours x 4 weeks = $4,000/month • IT is the #1 expense after HR • Downtime has become the #1 expense in IT
  13. 13. BOOM!!!! Your Server has crashed!!! what do you do…
  14. 14. The FIX or as we call it the SOLUTION… Introducing… These Services Programs Include…
