At Infiniti, we pick our partners and associations like we pick our employees. In today’s rapidly changing technical environment the only way to stay competitive is to work with “best of breed” partners.
We work with these leading partners in many different ways, but we always aim to leverage their core competencies to bring you greater value. In many cases we certify and credential our staff, or recruit bright new certified talent, in the technologies and methods of our partners. The meshing of our talent, methods and experiences with our partners’ technologies and capacity, allows us to bring you a powerful and impactful combination.
We pride ourselves on the strong relationships we build with our customers. At Infiniti, no problem or challenge is too big for us to handle. We work side by side with our customers to build a foundation for success.
Strategic PlanningAt Infiniti we approach strategic planning in a practical manner. With declining revenue, tightened budgets and the uncertainty of the market, agencies must plan strategically for both the long and the short term. We help our clients to strategize, plan, architect and implement and manage IT projects in a way that makes the most of their resources while boosting efficiency and capacity. Our experience in this area will help to ensure your business is planning for and operating with the big picture in mind. We are now leading strategic initiatives with our clients to help them take advantage of cloud services.
Diagnostic AssessmentAt Infiniti we remain focused on the fact that technology should enable organizations by supporting operations and business decisions, not the other way around. Business, education and organizational processes and work flows must be well understood to design effective technology systems. Effectively assessing your current state and identifying your needs and gaps can power change and innovation to achieve your desired state. Our approach typically includes requirements definition, requirements review, and requirements traceability, as well as requirements for software, hardware, security, and telecommunications. Our team is skilled at organizing and leading facilitated JAD sessions with critical business users to identify and gather requirements.
Change ManagementInfiniti delivers innovative change management services to help our clients prepare for and manage complex business organizational and workforce change. We are experts in guiding clients through the people side of change and maximizing the Return on Investment (ROI).
Project ManagementInfiniti’s team has implemented best practices models including Project Management Institute (PMI), Six Sigma, and Lean methodologies to create comprehensive and workable plans, overcome roadblocks, and improve organizational efficiency. Infiniti’s project managers understand the complexities inherent in both small and large IT projects. They apply tools and techniques appropriately to meet each unique factor within a project. Infiniti’s approach is always outcome-oriented, focusing work on the deliverables and gaining the necessary buy-in from all involved parties to make a project truly successful. Infiniti’s project managers understand the value of process, methodology, and technology but also know that intelligence and experience must be used to apply these tools to move the project in the right direction. Infiniti’s philosophy is centered on working hard and delivering what our clients really need.
Enterprise ArchitectureInfiniti’s architectural philosophy is business-driven – big-picture focused – combined with an incremental build-out to get more out of a client’s existing technology investments while leveraging newer technologies such as cloud services. Infiniti recognizes that, first and foremost, technology must align with business needs – we do not get caught up in implementing new technology unless there is a real business need. Infiniti has extensive experience in architecting complex information systems and specializes in projects involving both new technology (cloud services) and legacy systems.
AnalyticsIncreasingly organizations look to partners like Infiniti to assist them with data mining and data analysis to garner valuable insights that inform and power their business and government decisions. Infiniti’s BI and BPR competencies lend themselves to working with powerful new reporting tools and data to identify new trends, savings, and opportunities to help improve client performance.
Disaster RecoveryInfiniti provides disaster recovery and business continuity services that center around conducting business process analysis, defining continuity objectives, and identifying steps that can be taken to minimize the effects of a disaster. As a result, allowing an organization is less impacted by a disaster and fully prepared to continue mission-critical functions in the event that a disaster strikes.
Business Process Re-engineeringInfiniti’s BPR services are focused on analyzing current business processes (the “As-Is” environment) to allow redesign of the processes, associated systems, and organizational structures to optimize overall business process and business program performance (the “To-Be” design). Infiniti’s BPR specialists have experience with both business process and business program re-engineering. They understand how to adeptly combine the use of strategy, process, technical, and organizational structure along with cultural change management and training to optimize performance.
Over the years software development lifecycles have moved from waterfall to agile models of development. These improvements are moving downstream toward IT operations with the evolution of DevOps.
Whereas agile software development primarily focuses on the collaboration between the business and its developers, DevOps focuses on the collaboration between developers, IT operations and security teams. IT operations include system administrators, database administrators, network engineers, infrastructure architects, and support personnel. Whereas agile software development provides business agility, DevOps provides IT agility, enabling the deployment of applications that are more reliable, predicable, and efficient.
At Infiniti we understand that DevOps practices vary with the task: With application development, DevOps focuses on code building, code coverage, unit testing, packaging, and deployment. With infrastructure, on the other hand, DevOps focuses on provisioning, configuration, orchestration, and deployment. But in each area the underlying principles of version management, deployment, roll back, roll forward, and testing remain the same. Infiniti’s background in software engineering, network engineering, and security engineering has allowed us to be highly effective at implement DevOps in multiple cloud environments including Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. We are experienced in using tools such as CloudFormation, Jenkins, Salt, Chef, Docker, AWS AMIs, and others to DevOps principles for our customers.
S/W Development & System IntegrationInfiniti’s consultants have comprehensive knowledge, skills, and experience in large-scale systems. Infiniti’s systems integrators provide:
Business IntelligenceInfiniti’s team understands that the purpose of business intelligence (BI) is to turn complex data into meaningful information that can be used by organizations to help them be more effective. Infiniti’s business-driven approach allows us to understand how to turn data into information. Furthermore, our practical approach helps clients implement BI solutions efficiently and balances organizational priorities with investment, resulting in maximum benefit to the organization.
TestInsure your contractual requirements are met. Infiniti provides quality assurance to large-scale technology integration projects in the public and private sector using ISO 9000 and IEEE standards. System and software testing includes user acceptance, integration and performance testing.
Infiniti is working with clients to help them understand how best to use cloud-based technologies. We first understand our clients’ concerns and business objectives and then match these to the most appropriate platform. Our core competency is delivering custom cloud projects and services for clients who have limited cloud expertise on staff or who need additional resources to execute better and faster. We leverage the best cloud technology available to provide a solution that is unique to your project requirements. Our approach is practical and is focused on minimizing risk and maximizing return on investment, while taking advantage of the most current technology available. At Infiniti we focus on the 6 cloud benefits below to deliver value for our clients:
1. Trade capital expense for variable expense
Instead of having to invest heavily in data centers and servers before you know how you’re going to use them, you can use cloud computing and only pay when you consume computing resources, and only pay for how much you consume.
2. Benefit from massive economies of scale
By using cloud computing, you can achieve a lower variable cost than you can get on your own. Because usage from hundreds of thousands of customers are aggregated in the cloud, cloud computing providers such as Amazon Web Services can achieve higher economies of scale which translates into lower pay as you go prices.
3. Stop guessing capacity
Eliminate guessing on your infrastructure capacity needs. When you make a capacity decision prior to deploying an application, you often end up sitting on expensive idle resources or dealing with limited capacity. Cloud Computing allows you to access as much or little as you need, and scale up or down as required in a matter of minutes.
4. Increase speed and agility
In cloud computing environments, new IT resources are only a click away. This means a reduction in time it takes to make those resources available to your developers from weeks to just minutes. The result is a dramatic increase in agility for the organization as costs and time to experiment or develop is significantly lower.
5. Stop spending money on running and maintaining data centers
Focus on projects that differentiate your business, not the infrastructure. Cloud computing lets you focus on your own customers, rather than on the heavy lifting of racking, stacking and powering servers.
6. Go global in minutes
With Cloud Computing, you can easily deploy your application in multiple regions around the world with just a few clicks. This means you can provide a lower latency and better experience for your customers simply and at minimal cost.
