Optimization / Simplicity
The volume of data generated by monitoring, virtualization and network operations tools continues to increase at a pace not matched by decision management tools. It is imperative that this BIG DATA challenge be deciphered in a contextual manner if we are to achieve some level of IT Optimization. The Configuration Management System (CMS) is a mere example of how volumes of detailed data from across the IT environment can be linked together, based on its relationships, to deliver value and the decision making capability as part of your IT Optimization efforts.
K2 Solutions Group is working with Big Data and meta data modeling industry leaders to ensure that the solutions we offer to our client partners not only provide a simplified view of their environment but also that they lead to sustainable cost reduction opportunities.
Operational Efficiency / Sustainability
We at K2 Solutions Group believe that Operational Efficiency movements should become part of the normal IT Service Management processes rather than afterthoughts. These encompass both Organizational Change efforts and Green IT/Sustainability opportunities. We recognize that new technologies cannot be implemented without factoring in both positive and negative cost implications. This is why we are taking a leadership role in the integration of GreenIT movements with the IT Service Management community and factoring them into our Organizational Change efforts wherever applicable.
We believe that by working closely with the industry organizations and government agencies as we do, we can ensure that the solutions deployed by K2 Solutions Group will enable our client partners to take full advantage of the advances being made in these areas.
Service Management Solutions
Founded by the co-author of "The CMDB Imperative: How to realize the dream and avoid the nightmare" K2 Solutions Group, Inc. has based it's methodology on common sense and more than 25 years of experience in Fortune 100 organizations and Government Agenices. We don't work with you to implement Best Practice because doing so will mean that you will be executing what your competitors already did well before you. We work with you on the "Right Practice" which will help you leapfrog them and provide a competitive advantage to your business partners.
Our solution & assessment methodology and architectural approach is grounded in the practical understanding that although there are many commonalities, not all organizations are trying to resolve the same problems nor have the same challenges. Our success is predominantly based on the fact that we seek to ensure that practicality and reality are always fundamental components to all of our solutions and organizational change efforts.
K2 Solutions Group, Inc. was founded on the principles of partnership and simplicity. All challenges no matter how large can be reached if tackled as smaller and less complex components of the larger initiative. This approach is no more evident than in the ascent to the top of K2 in the Karakoram segment of the Himalayan mountain range, arguably the world’s most difficult to ascend. To survive the climb to the summit, mountain adventurers in base camp carefully plan out small daily ascents but only in partnership with seasoned leaders and guides that have traveled the routes before.
Your ascent to the peak of IT Service Management (ITSM) is one that has its own great challenges. You must seek out a partner that has made the ascent before and led others to the summit. The professionals at K2 Solutions are CMS / CMDB leaders and seasoned guides that will help you plan and succeed in your ascent.
Solutions believes that only with strong partners can anyone succeed. It is for this reason that we view those whom we work with as client-partners and solution-partners. We are all partners on the same journey to the summit.
Only with strong partners can anyone succeed. It is for this reason that we view those whom we work with as client-partners and solution-partners. We do not seek to become all things to all organizations and prefer to focus on our speciality of helping our client-partners to transform data into actionable information by leveraging the implementaiton and efficient operation of the CMS. We believe that, remaining focused helps deliver the best quality and most cost effective solution to our client-partners. Where appropriate, we will partner with other organizations that we feel are the best in their respective disciplines in order to ensure the best possible results for our clients.
