Managed Services by BTA

Adopting new technology can be challenging and time consuming. Understanding this, BTA provides optional managed services. These service offerings offload your team from managing new technology after implementation allowing them to focus on other initiatives and learning the unique operational model for your environment. 

Business Technology Architects delivers unparalleled managed network services for businesses deploying or optimizing Cisco Secure Workload (Tetration). Customers experience a time-to-value of weeks versus months due to our proven and repeatable S.I.M.P.L.E. process that is critical to streamlined deployment and operational sustainability. We have developed operations automation tools and reporting tools that are designed specifically to facilitate CSW as a fully managed solution.

Map

Creating and executing those uses cases and design to configure, automate, and secure deployed technologies to meet operation requirements

Prove

Thorough testing to ensure all technologies work as they should and meet the defined business objectives and use cases

Launch

Executing the rigorously tested infrastructure and develop documentation of the final design and build, including automation

Evolve

Wrapping up the project by gathering feedback, bridging education gaps, and identifying next steps to further optimize the new technology

Managed Network Services

BTA understands that finding and retaining the right team to internally manage network and data center operations can be challenging. Our team specializes in network security with a concentration on Cisco Secure Workload, offering you the expertise you need to fully manage your infrastructure properly with convenience and stability. BTA has always been a part of the Cisco partner community. Our advisory and managed services, called Ensure Networks, helps Cisco customers fill gaps in their portfolio. 

As an alternative to our fully managed services strategy, we offer advisory services as a bridge to operational sustainability. These services include all consulting offerings with access to our library of automation and reporting tools. If you prefer guidance and tools to fully outsourced management, our advisory services will give you the tactics and strategies you need to execute your CSW projects.

Our key differentiator in managed services for CSW is Architect Explorer™ - a set of automation, document generation, and reporting tools, giving customers a secure instance of the tools, operational reporting and scripting, and all data generated. With Architect Explorer™, your critical data is made more accessible, organized, and actionable so you can move forward with the information needed to make intelligent data-driven decisions.
