Consulting And Integration

CISIPL’s portfolio offers a range of services, from strategic IT advice, to cloud consulting, and data centre transformation services.

Success in today’s world demands transformative IT and business strategies and a highly-flexible and responsive technology infrastructure.

CISIPL’s Consulting & Integration division leverages years of experience and proven best practices to help companies plan, design, implement, and support a fully utilized and optimized data centre that enables mission-critical systems to perform at peak service levels. It is founded on deep domain expertise as well as the principle that “one solution does not fit all” customers. Our broad-based IT expertise draws on solutions incorporating components from multiple vendors and more than three decades of experience in delivering heterogeneous environment services.

IT organizations are burdened with two seemingly incongruous goals – to maximize data availability, performance, security, and service levels to meet business demands, while reducing data centre and overall business costs.



As IT organizations work to keep pace with business requirements and to provide the highest levels of uptime and reliability, they increasingly face budget constraints. To improve server utilization and efficiencies within their data centre infrastructure, many companies are turning to virtualization and open source technologies for the answer.

We are also fully cognizant of Sarbanes-Oxley, Patriot Act, Graham-Leach-Bliley, HIPAA, Check 21, CobiT, and other critical issues of compliance that are driving many of today’s IT needs. Our focus is creating a powerful interlinking with legacy, new, and future technologies that ensures cost-effective, ROI-centric delivery of solutions in an exploding market with expanding needs. We scale our delivery to any size; and therefore, bring all key technologies to any “playing field”, and any client.

CISIPL is a Mumbai based independent System Integrator providing a wide range of IT services and solutions.

CIPL helps you understand all aspects of the cloud models, facilitate your progression from traditional models to fast track cloud implementations with packaged solutions.

Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is an emerging trend in IT. It provides rapid access to dynamically scalable and virtualized IT resources. As a new consumption and delivery model, cloud computing is enabling businesses to reduce costs and improve service levels. With its adoption predicted to get wider over the next decade, it will result in a transformation of IT.

While much is being made of the “the cloud”, what is less obvious is that it demands many new choices be evaluated: more delivery options, more initiatives, and many more applications. Delivery options now range from traditional environments to virtualized platforms, Software as a Service (SaaS),Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO). Several initiatives are now being considered and implemented by CIOs due to the arrival of cloud, including data center consolidation, “green” data centers, vendor consolidation, IT supply chain management, application rationalization, virtualization, employee self-service tools, amongst others.

CISIPL’s team helps you understand all aspects of the cloud models, facilitate your progression from traditional models to fast track cloud implementations with packaged solutions—starting with your specific needs and questions:

• How do I know which services are right for cloud and which are not?
• What’s the most effective way to build a private cloud for today and tomorrow?
• How secure are my cloud services?
• How do I manage my service portfolio to ensure I’m receiving the benefits I expect?
• How do I build a flexible environment that can rapidly accommodate changing business requirements?

CISIPL virtualization services span the service lifecycle—strategy, design, transition, operation and continual service improvement.

CISIPL Virtualization Services are a suite of consulting, implementation and support services that help clients realize the results that virtualization promises. Through Virtualization Services we help clients develop a virtualization strategy that matches each business and IT needs. We design the solution. We install the solution and help you transition it into production. And we help you merge your virtualized environment into effective and efficient operations processes.

The drive to virtualization—for data centers and clients—promises to reduce both acquisition costs and operations expenditures. And it can give IT more control over a complex environment. In turn, we promise clients equal or better service than they would receive with dedicated resources.

CISIPL Virtualization Services span the service lifecycle—strategy, design, transition, operation and continual service improvement. At each phase, we help clients grow expertise and incorporate virtualized data centers and clients into mainstream IT planning and operations. There is no ‘one size fits all’ for virtualization. Clients need to ensure that these and other strategies will deliver the desired business results and performance enhancements.

We have partnerships with and expertise in the major virtualization technology providers to enable clients to make more efficient use of IT assets that are being siloed or underutilized, and minimize risks associated with infrastructure changes.

Virtualization solutions can help organizations to:
• Keep businesses running by proactively managing change and reducing risk of downtime
• Provide better business services by improving IT staff productivity and service availability
• Deploy new services to the business faster
• Enhance business agility
• Reduce the risk of business downtime through improved disaster recovery and increased IT performance
• Facilitate the adoption of cost-effective computing models, such as private clouds, shared infrastructures and utility billing
• Reduce carbon emissions and cost

CISIPL solutions bring technology back together in the most optimal way to accelerate the provisioning of IT services and applications. This is achieved by integrating multivendor server and storage technologies with networking, security, power, cooling, and cloud – into shared pools of interoperable resources.

Servers and Storage
The net result enables organizations to transform technology into a business advantage by being able to adapt easily and innovate rapidly to deliver the value the business needs, delivering such things like:

• Free up needed funds and expand capacity by transforming your server and storage infrastructure to simplify infrastructure management in a secure, cost-efficient way
• Achieve project goals without adding to permanent & fixed resource costs
• Faster-time-to-value, applications, and revenue
• Reducing the costs of acquisition and implementation
• Responding more quickly and flexibly to business changes
• And, of course, reduce risks of all kinds

CISIPL can help deliver intelligent, end-to-end network infrastructures that support business objectives and manage IT investments.

Application-driven, service-oriented architectures (SOA) and virtualization have banished the client-server model from the data center. Cloud computing, too, makes heavy use of server virtualization, which reshapes data center traffic flows and increases bandwidth demands at the server edge. By 2014, network planners should expect more than 80 percent of traffic in the data center’s local area network (LAN) to be between servers.


network infrastructure


These efforts at flexibility can be hampered by legacy data center networks. They cannot provide high enough bandwidth and low enough latency between server connections to support highly mobile virtual workloads.

As business volumes rise, traffic levels are exploding. Virtualization has taken root across businesses of all sizes. Today, roughly 20 percent of workloads are virtualized, and Gartner expects that this will hit 50 percent by year-end 2012, and continue to grow beyond this level.Traffic within the server rack is expected to grow by 25 times. Saturated in technology at home, business workers have quickly acclimated to a rich-media experience and are using video and interactive collaboration tools.
To address these and other concerns, CIPL’s Network Services deliver intelligent, end-to-end network infrastructures that allow organizations – regardless of their size – to support business objectives and manage IT investments. Our expert services combine the entire lifecycle of our clients’ extensible local and wide area network and are designed to maximize availability, performance, and agility.

Through alliances with the leaders in the industry such as HP and its FlexNetwork Architecture which delivers five primary benefits: an open and standards-based solution with scalability on three dimensions: security, agility, and consistency, we leverage emerging advances in wireless, IP convergence, security, and intelligent networking to deliver best-of-breed solutions.

We conduct comprehensive network assessments (analyze existing networks, protocols, wired and wireless configurations, and develop blueprints, etc.) to identify performance, interoperability and connectivity requirements and ensure ease of use. We provide implementation planning, detailed logical and physical network design, rapid deployment and network rollouts, product installation and customization and operational services for network and cabling infrastructures. We help businesses securely converge data, enable intelligent network infrastructures; and deploy mobility solutions by exploiting technologies such as virtual private networking (VPN), fiber optic networking, content delivery networks, storage networking, and wireless.

The cornerstone of our strategy is to:
• Enable and protect our client’s data networks by providing optimal and highly available infrastructure

Mobility is transforming business and life. The borders between personal and professional, home and office, device and applications are disappearing. Today mobility is not just the ability to use an app from a mobile device but to be relevant when you are truly mobile. Mobile devices have out shipped laptops and desktops today. By 2013, share of mobile devices will go up from 26% of enterprise computing devices today to 40%. By year-end 2012, 34% of the global workforce will be mobile information workers. By 2014, 90% of global Fortune 1000 companies will implement cloud printing services for mobile personnel. 43% of surveyed IT executives are somewhat or very concerned about the security of using smartphones for business.

Today, human interactions are the most important part of mobility. Social media has transformed processes the way we live and interact with each other. Adoption of the cloud is driven by the need to collaborate with an exciting and worry-free experience. In short, we live in an era of new social behavior driven by the world economy and an “always-on” capability.As a leading global system integration company, CISIPL’s mobile computing solutions are part of our comprehensive lifecycle services portfolio designed to address the new age of collaboration and communications by providing the very best in mobile software, hardware, connectivity, and services solutions to efficiently mobilize and increase the productivity of today’s ever increasing virtual workforce.
