A systems integrator transforms an organization by optimizing the client’s disparate hardware and software subsystems into a comprehensive IT solution. This alignment simplifies the client’s technology environment and can increase revenue, create operational efficiencies, manage cost and improve client experiences. While a systems integrator may have preferred products, their approach is inherently vendor agnostic.
Once a company chooses a systems integrator, the first step in the integration process is to assess the business’s needs and define the requirements for their transformation project. With this foundation, the systems integrator then develops and executes an integration plan. After implementation, they continue to test and improve the system, and some systems integrators provide maintenance as well.
The distinguishing characteristic of a systems integrator is its comprehensive suite of solutions, services and capabilities. Digital transformation projects involve a multitude of interconnected technical resources that could require multiple vendors. But a systems integrator is equipped to address each component — helping to consolidate vendors in the process
A well-equipped solutions integrator can handle many aspects of your technology strategy, including:
