DNS IT Solutions


VM-Ware virtual computing will allow you to run multiple operating systems and workloads simultaneously from one server. Using this service comes with three key benefits:

1. Server costs - You can save money on power, management, and upgrades that are constantly rising in cost.

2. Poor return on investment - The common practice of dedicating a single server to each x86 application and sizing it for peak loads has lead to severe underutilizations. Typically, most data center servers run at 5 - 15% CPU utilisation.

3. Manageability - Managing servers becomes increasingly difficult as the numbers grow. Adding to the challenge is the heterogeneous mix of hardware vendors, server models, operating systems and configurations that IT departments need to support.

It will streamline and automate various business functions, leading to enhanced productivity, reduced costs and greater visibility of your assets and the progress of ongoing jobs and projects.

SAM was originally designed as an ‘off the peg’ product for smaller businesses that do not require or cannot afford complex, bespoke software solutions.

However, we have now developed three versions of SAM to suit different needs, one of which can be customised and adapted to suit the requirements of even the largest business.

Although SAM is a stand-alone product, it will also interface successfully with existing applications such as Sage, giving you even more resource and flexibility. More Here…

The DNS Enterprise resource planning System (ERP)

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) refers to a management system that is used integrate the various departments and functions of business into a unified system. The single system is composed of various software modules and components that handle all the different processes of each department, from manufacturing operations to finance and human resources.

An ERP system will generally require both hardware and software components. The system is most likely to have a single data warehouse (a central database). While ERP systems originated from the need for manufacturing planning systems, they are now enterprise-wide in their functionality. ERP suites come in many forms and many are scalable to the requirements of a medium-sized business. Many people still think of ERP as a back-office solution, newer versions come with inbuilt CRM functionality. The original ERP systems were integrated monolithic packages, but newer ERP systems are more flexible and can be installed as separate components.

This is a much better solution for medium-sized companies. This means you can install the ERP modules incrementally, as needs or costs dictate. You will not have to worry about interoperability as you expand your ERP solution.
