Assessment Services

CDW Amplified™ Infrastructure assessment services provide you with a detailed snapshot of your current infrastructure ahead of any planned material change.

Digital transformation enables your business to do more than ever before. However, without a clear strategy and detailed roadmap, transformation projects typically fail.

We also help set the foundation for business innovation by creating support for cross-functional IT teams and outlining DevOps best practices. We do this through the use of architectural reviews and alignment of technical account management functions to enable digital transformation projects to result in realised business benefits, not just technology project outcomes.

Design an Efficient Cloud Platform

Designing an enterprise class cloud platform requires expert knowledge and experience to avoid the many pitfalls that can often arise. CDW Amplified™ Infrastructure services bring this expert knowledge and experience to the forefront of our engagements, taking into consideration everything from the fundamentals of account, billing architecture and cost mapping, through to critical aspects such as security, disaster recovery, backup and automation.

Even if your business is well along on its cloud journey, added complexities of public and multi-cloud environments make careful planning a must. CDW Amplified™ Infrastructure helps you design and augment your cloud capabilities, build custom cloud applications and bolster security for your new platform.

CDW's JumpStart helps our customers deploy a ready-to-use production architecture within days to weeks rather than months.

For customers who have already embarked on a cloud journey, CDW's HealthCheck service is essential in checking that existing cloud deployments are able to avoid simple pitfalls, often seen in customers' deployments, before they impact your business.
