DC/DRC Operations Audit & Assessment
Data Center Operations Audit
Many organisations implement system management solutions to help them simplify, automate, and manage their data center operations more effectively and efficiently. But it is a common failure for many of them to not look at what could be improved after such implementations.
Being a system management specialist, SMS provides Data Center Operations Audit services as part of our professional services offering.
Our Data Center Operations Audit engagement is an extensive one that offers a complete and comprehensive study on the customer’s Data Center operations. The objective of such engagement is to assess and study the customer’s Data Center operations, that is, to identify the issues and areas of concern faced with day-to-day Data Center operations.
At the conclusion of the exercise, the customer shall receive documentation on findings and recommendations to address those issues and concerns. A briefing and presentation to the customer’s management will be conducted to present the findings and recommendations.
Our approach for the Data Center Operations Audit calls for the use of consultants experienced in the business industries and IT management. Our consultants for this exercise have more than 20 years of experience in consulting and project implementations for business and IT management

Customer’s IT environment does not stay stagnant – it changes from time to time. New servers may be added, some existing servers may be taken out of commission, applications and databases are upgraded, there are new IT staff in the department, and so forth, which will affect the operations of the system management implementations and their corresponding policies & procedures.
