Technology supports every aspect of a business, which makes it important for us to be strategic with available IT resources. Our team of virtual CIOs ask questions to better understand your business needs and objectives, assess your current IT infrastructure and systems and create a customized plan that prioritizes your business goals and aligns your business with the technology you need.

Our experts will analyze your current IT environment to help better understand the current state of your IT. Based on results, they will build out a detailed IT plan that highlights the most important changes that you need to implement today, versus those that you can implement over the course of the next few quarters. Within this comprehensive plan, our consultants will highlight details that roadmap exactly how you can achieve each of your IT goals and tasks within a specific time period using the budget you have.

In addition, Ricoh can also help with designing and implementing your entire IT infrastructure. The right architecture and skilled deployment of your company's IT infrastructure is the foundation for your business processes and applications. We can help cover the entire data centre from pillar to post and assist you in determining the right way to configure your infrastructure, whether on-premise, hybrid or cloud.

Disasters happen, but how you prepare for them, both before and after they take place, could be the difference between recovering your data in minutes rather than days or even weeks and the deciding factor between a business that gets back on their feet or closes their doors for good.

Ricoh's virtual CIOs and security specialists can help you build a comprehensive disaster recovery plan that's assessed, tested and retested before disaster strikes. From downed power and malicious attacks on your data to extreme weather or employee errors – we can help your business ensure IT reliability. Part of your business continuity plan also includes extensive data backup and archiving strategies to support information governance so that your data is available in the format you need and never out of reach. Backups can take place as per your business needs, up to multiple times a day.

IT threat levels to your business are higher than ever, making protecting your business a complicated task for your IT team. IT security services provide the assessment and remediation you need to stay ahead of threats. Our approach, based on governance, risk, and compliance best practices, quickly identifies vulnerabilities for security breaches, gaps that can result in cyber-attacks and other internal technology exposures before they impact your business.

Some of the assessments we carry out include:

Technology Infrastructure Assessment - Understand and document the current state of your systems, services and processes.

Security Infrastructure Assessments - Know how effective your safeguards are. Get an expert review of your security.

Cloud-readiness Assessment - Determine what you can move to the cloud and when.

Turning technology into innovation. Turning vision into reality. This is Insightful IT.
