Consulting

Consulting

The perception is the skill pool for IBM i is reducing and will result in skills shortages in the coming years. We have a number of skilled technicians for IBM i available to offer services related to the installation and management of our products as well as help with migrations and upgrades. Our technicians hone their skills with new technologies using our in-house systems which run the earliest to latest supported releases of IBM i/OS. As our systems are micro partitioned we have developed skills in the setup an management of those partitions using the HMC and other VM technologies, all of this allows our technicians to be confident in working with these technologies.

Implementation

Consulting

Shield's products are packaged as IBM Licensed Program Product which means they are installed in the same manner you would install other software supplied for the IBM i by IBM. This reduces the skills required to install, configure and manage them on a daily basis to where they can be installed by any IBM i administrator with little difficulty. However, there are times when you may need assistance with the install and configuration, so we provide a number of services to help guide your staff or fully implement the products for you. If you are interested in speaking with one of the technicians, please use the contact form and we will call to discuss your needs.

Management

Consulting

Managing a High Availability environment takes some effort, it's not necessarily as a result of the HA solution you implement but can be due to other factors such as environment changes or application errors. HA4i has been designed to reduce the amount of attention it needs on a daily basis but there are still times when you need to take corrective actions to ensure your environment is fully recoverable when it is required. Using our remote access technology and automated notifications built into the products we can provide a Remote Management offering to help ensure your environment is kept in good shape by using the skills we have acquired over years of developing and implementing High Availability Solutions. If you would like to know more contact us using the link above and we will be glad to call you to discuss your needs and how we can help.
