IT Services & Support
IT Consulting Service
IT consulting services generally don’t provide tangible goods. To use an IT consultant, people must have trust in the individual doing the work and its supporting organizations. This trust is something that CIT has been working on for almost 20 years. We strive to build that trust with our clients.

From high-level IT discussions to research and budgeting we have it covered. With solutions ranging from IT Solutions to desktop support to virtualization to server and network design, our staff of trained professionals won’t let you down when you need us the most.

Managed IT Solutions
The advancements in technology aren’t just related to faster processors, more storage and larger displays. The software that CIT uses to monitor your network can look for problems before they become critical, alerting an engineer and providing background information. These managed it services enable the engineer to immediately connect to the server, desktop, laptop and even mobile device that is having the problem and begin working on a resolution quickly.
Why not use managed it services to prevent issues before they happen? Using proactive solutions you can keep your operations running smoothly, 24/7/365.
To get the most out of your IT assets, they need to be deployed as long as feasible. The only way to keep a computer up and operational for as long as its stated service life is to institute a strict maintenance routine keeping a close eye on hardware errors and providing notification when warranties near expiration. Each computer has components that must be maintained, each computer needs to be maintained, and each router, firewall, switch and server have their own unique needs and necessities. By adopting CIT’s managed it services, management software and information technology methodology all of your IT needs can be centrally managed.
In conjunction with our backup and disaster recovery solutions, no network needs to be down for long. Imagine what would happen if you lost a day of data? A month, a year? Do you want to start emailing your clients asking for them to send you a copy of your proposals because you “lost” them. Don’t let your unmanaged IT become a drain upon your business by hoping it won’t have problems. The technology exists today. Get it.

Virtualization and Cloud Computing
If you don’t have a virtualization strategy, you need one. The traditional server-desktop infrastructure is still valuable in today’s companies, but the changeover is approaching quickly. The demand from many software vendors is to have a single server for their application. This is to ensure that it operates at peak performance. The problem is when you have multiple applications that require isolation, your infrastructure grows unnecessarily. This is where virtualization and cloud computing make sense.
Without using server virtualization, the expenses of hardware, software and maintenance can add up fast. A slightly larger upfront investment can allow for continued growth with minimal additional cost. Today’s hardware can easily handle multiple servers with proper design and deployment. This makes server virtualization a must have for any small business, medium business or large business.
The logical extension of server virtualization is desktop virtualization. This is where you extend your infrastructure beyond the server and utilize the same resources to virtualize your desktops. Because of the advancements in both hardware and virtualization software, desktop virtualization today can deliver the same user experiences as a full PC. However, you get a lower total cost of ownership, quick deployment and better management tools, giving your business the flexibility it needs.
In theory, the addition of cloud computing you can improve the efficiency of your information technology further. But, however alluring the thoughts of cloud computing are, you don’t want to do it alone. Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Rackspace all have offerings for you to enter the world of the cloud easily, but you need someone who knows technology to help you make that decision. This involves determining if it is a good fit for your business and what aspects of your IT needs can be moved. Don’t go it alone.
