SCC: Bestowing Integrated and Scalable IT Infrastructure

The best run projects are often symbolized with meeting the changing business requirements in short time. However, keeping track of these changes can be a nightmare without proper tools and techniques. “The entire business scenario has changed from on-premise to onsite solutions, either private plans or hybrid plans, giving enterprises the flexibility in terms of infrastructure by which they’re running their businesses,” says Andy Wright, Commercial Director, SCC. Headquartered in U.K., SCC enables organizations to scale to this business demands by planning, supplying, integrating and managing their IT. “We run IT infrastructure and services through partnership, knowledge and passion,” states Wright.

The company’s cloud service is formulated on a shared infrastructure that understands data and delivers solutions to strike a balance between security, cost and control. “At SCC, we help customers migrate from their legacy systems to a shared but private cloud in our data center,” states Wright. Entrusted to run IT infrastructure services for leading businesses across Europe for over four decades, SCC offer a niche platform in collaboration with HP reaching up to security impact level 3. SCC leverages HP’s 3PAR storage technology in the commercial cloud space to enhance its performance.

SCC’s Converged Infrastructure looks to break down the silos of a traditional IT deployment and reduce the cost and complexity of deploying infrastructure components individually. The latest evolution of IT architecture, converged infrastructure, integrates server, storage and networking components into one standardized modular platform. It provides both technical and business efficiencies by pre-integrating the technology components necessary to deliver a common technology footprint. “We enable common architecture across the private and public sectors,” says Wright.

Being one of the HP’s largest partners across EMEA, SCC maintains the highest level of accreditations across the entire HP portfolio from Platinum Converged Infrastructure Specialist through Gold Workstation Specialist.
“At SCC, we have developed one of the most highly skilled HP consultancy teams with leading IT skill sets and capabilities in delivery services relating to designing, installation, configuration, upgradation, performance analysis, and infrastructure audit or health checks, as well as migration services of the HP Product Families,” asserts Wright. “HP has been very important business partner to us in terms of project execution and the value they add around our products. HP has helped us in bringing new ideas, innovative ways of working and advanced and more flexible solutions,” adds the Warwick grad.

SCC’s out-of-the-box solutions and services and the customer-centric business strategies keep it ahead in the competition. “The easiest way to keep us in tune is to listen to our customers. We carry out customer surveys to make sure our services are hitting the industry’s pain point,” claims Wright. This has helped them successfully solve many of customers’ pain points. For instance, SCC, using HP’s converged infrastructure, helped the England and Wales police forces by bringing in some transformational work in 4 or 5 of the forces. This helped them to cut legacy costs and also ensured flexibility and future capacity. SCC has helped the force to improve productivity with lesser workforce.

Moving forward, SCC aims to develop in the IT infrastructure business and improve its services and capabilities around every one of its products. “In future, we plan to invest more on cloud service and expand its operation in the U.K. data center,” concludes Wright.
