As ICT is increasingly becoming on of the most important enablers for businesses, consulting services have broadened and deepened their scope and necessity, over the past decade. Companies are hiring technology consultants to support them in their digital transformation journey, to meet their business objectives or overcome a large variety of problems. The type of work can range from strategic, such as developing a new IT strategy or IT cybersecurity approach, to tactical, such as the implementation of an ERP system or the selection of an IT system, to highly operational such as the development of a mobile application or the transformation of an old legacy one.
Uni Systems provides ICT consulting services that help clients assess different technology strategies for aligning their own technology strategies with their business or process objectives. These consulting services support customers’ ICT initiatives and are providing strategic, architectural, operational and implementation planning.
Strategic planning includes advisory services that help clients assess their IT needs and formulate strategies for systems implementation. Architecture planning consists of advisory services in combination with strategies, planning and knowledge of emerging technologies, to create the mapping and design of the system and its supporting infrastructure, in order to satisfy customer requirements. Operational assessment/benchmarking includes services that implement the assessment of the operational efficiency and the capacity of a client’s ICT environment. Implementation planning consists of services that are aiming at advising our customers on the rollout and testing of new solution deployments.
Digital Transformation is changing the way we operate, how we interact with our customers and how we create new value, products and services to address the changing business landscapes. Technology Innovation, customer behavior and new demands, along with external business factors, is what drives Digital Transformation today. Business leaders must constantly challenge their organizations to ensure this transformation can unlock productivity gain, significant competitive advantage, increased speed to market and agility.
Solutions need to adjust to the new IT environment while clients consider existing infrastructure and future investments. The need for cost reductions, simpler infrastructure, and the increased dynamics for new applications and services call for agility and swiftness. An holistic IT environment, bundled with the appropriate methodology and technologies that match the needs of organizations, can drive them through a road map to a Digital Transformation journey combined with Data Center Facilities services, Uni Systems IaaS, Private / Public or Hybrid Cloud, infrastructure management, business continuity and disaster recovery services.
It is a new culture, a new way of thinking, a means of innovation that are developed in order to improve IT service delivery and operational efficiency. DevOps emphasizes on communication and integration between software and IT operations, by removing the silos and enhancing collaboration. In our effort to meet our clients’ needs, we first adopted DevOps services in our own technical environment and realized that code was deployed easier and with greater flexibility.
Middleware constitutes a critical part of cloud computing: even though cloud-native development provides a wide number of benefits to organizations, it is also bringing its own degree of complexity. We are having applications implemented across multiple infrastructures, on both on-premise systems and public clouds, with significantly varying architectures. Developers are constantly working with multiple tools, languages, and frameworks, always being pressured to deliver more in less time and at a reduced cost.
For organizations, middleware is the way to control this situation, while having applications developed in a fast and cost efficient manner. It can provide a smooth and consistent operational environment for applications, in a highly distributed platform.
As cyber-attacks are becoming more sophisticated and the use of devices multiplies, along with the cloud applications and data-intensive collaboration tools, security should be embedded in the design of each system.
Uni Systems is certified according to ISO/IEC 27001/2013 on IT system security management issues that cover the areas of Cloud Computing Services for Infrastructure, Platform and Software as a Service (laaS-PaaS-SaaS), IT and Telecommunication Hosting Systems and Company Data Center services, design, installation, management and Support of IT and Telecommunication systems.

Big Data Analytics
Big data can be either structured or unstructured. Structured data are the sets of information that already exists and is being managed internally from an organization, in its databases and spreadsheets, usually being of numeric nature. Unstructured data are the sets of information that is not organized and does not belong to a predefined format. Rather, it consists of data that are gathered from social media channels, helping organizations indirectly gather information on their customer needs.
