Messaging & Collaboration :

Your messaging system is more than just a way of communicating, it’s a collaboration tool for development and decision-making allowing organizations to achieve greater productivity. Microsoft messaging and collaboration products are designed to help you communicate more effectively. Along with the rich client functionality provided by Microsoft Office 2003, messaging and collaboration solutions offer Mobile, remote, and desktop e-mail access with state-of-the-art security and privacy.

Connecting employees, business partners, and customers in a seamless way has become paramount to responding to changes in the marketplace and meeting customers' needs. More and more, organizations realize collaboration is a critical component to their overall strategy for keeping employees productive and connected. Today's mobile workforce demands that employees have access to electronic mail, anywhere and on any device. Increasingly, real-time communications such as instant messaging, Web conferencing, and data collaboration are the means to foster improved communications.

To reach this level of collaboration, organizations need a solution that not only leverages investments of the past, but prepares it for future growth. Micron's IT consulting help teams be more productive through better information sharing and the ability to communicate effectively beyond corporate boundaries.

Virtualization / Virtual Computing :

Like most businesses, you probably rely heavily on your server infrastructure. The scalability and reliability of your servers are a number one priority. Building a stable server infrastructure can be a complex and expensive undertaking. At Micron, we implement virtualization software to maximize the efficiency, flexibility and performance of your server environment while reducing operational expenses and capital costs. How do we accomplish this using virtualization software? We implement products like Microsoft Hyper-V to consolidate services onto fewer highly scalable, highly reliable enterprise-class servers. This means reduced costs in deployment and maintenance that can save your business thousands of dollars.

Our Network Management services are geared towards businesses that don’t have a lot of time on their hands to perform network administration duties.

When was the last time you verified that your backups are working? Do all of your systems have the latest patches and security updates? Is your network environment well documented?
