Siwel Consulting, Inc. brings together industry-leading expertise in the three areas that drive IT: Hardware, Software and People. By using the latest technology, effectively managing hardware and software assets and streamlining system management, we increase overall organizational effectiveness and deliver greater efficiencies in each of these areas.
A Siwel partner is truly an ally dedicated to helping us provide you with the people, processes and technology you need to achieve your business objectives. Strong partnerships with the most important innovators in IT enable us to deliver the most current, most reliable and most cost-effective IT solutions. Accordingly, we partner with some of the world’s best-known and most successful innovators in information technology – and we stay partners. Siwel was one of the first companies in North America to implement virtualization solutions, and has earned the highest level of partner status with the leading companies in virtualization, storage, hardware and software.
Store & Compute
Siwel Consulting can take you from where you are to where you want to be. We were one of VMware’s first North American partners and have been building virtualized server environments for more than a decade. Today, Siwel is a VMware Premier Partner and a VMware Authorized Consultant – one of the few companies in the world to hold both distinctions – with recognized competencies in Business Continuity, Infrastructure Virtualization and Desktop Virtualization.
Providing up-to-date, secure computing desktops to hundreds or thousands of users across multiple locations used to be an extremely daunting, labor-intensive task. But today, with virtualized desktops based on VMware technology, tailored to your specific needs by Siwel Consulting, what was once a monumental challenge can be accomplished with just a few mouse clicks.
Businesses of all sizes, from start-ups to the Fortune 500, are confronting a similar challenge: the exponential growth of data that must be stored and protected while remaining instantly accessible to users. It’s easy to over-invest in storage, buying too much, too soon, creating unutilized capacity. Or worse, under-invest, and potentially lose irreplaceable data or provide a grindingly slow experience for employees and customers.
Siwel’s customers gain superior business benefits from their information technology investments. Our experienced engineers, technicians and project managers use the latest technology and industry best practices to help companies like yours achieve greater profitability, improved operational efficiency and enhanced business agility.
Software Asset Management
Siwel Consulting has been designing and implementing IT asset management programs for almost 20 years. Our analysts at the ITAM Center of Excellence understand that a successful program must combine timely, accurate business intelligence with strong business analytics – capabilities that only come with experience. We call on this experience every day to reduce hardware and software expenditures, mitigate compliance risk, manage audits and changing vendor metrics, and close gaps in managing the asset life cycle.
Siwel provides Software License Position (SLP) Services to help organizations maximize license utilization and understand their compliance position with leading software publishers. By comparing entitlement data to discovery outputs through rigorous analysis, we uncover and understand any potential risks or exposure.
In the world of software contracts, it is critical to understand vendor licensing metrics, your software license entitlements and actual usage so that you are in a position of power in contract negotiations and audits. This knowledge will enable you to optimize your software contracts and get the most for your money. Like the real estate attorney, Siwel Contract Advisory Services can step in and help.
Using proven “best practices,” Siwel’s ITAM Program Development Services provide solutions that deliver value and can easily adapt to changes in market forces and technologies. Our ITAM Program Development offering consists of a 5-Phase methodology that begins with a comprehensive assessment of an organization’s existing ITAM program, and ends with deployment and activation of a turnkey ITAM program designed, deployed and run using internal resources or as a cloud-enabled managed service.
Siwel’s SAM Services offering provides organizations with an easy, proven solution for effective Software Asset Management. The solution seamlessly integrates with your existing infrastructure and workflow and requires no investment in tools or hardware, which greatly simplifies rollout and adoption. Outsourcing your SAM program to Siwel offloads your SAM burden while significantly lowering your Software Asset Management expenses.
Oracle is unquestionably one of the leading licensors of enterprise software in the US. However, Oracle also has one of the most complex and arduous systems for licensing its software, creating a potential source of financial risk from a compliance perspective.
Are you confident that your Oracle agreements include the most favorable terms and conditions? Do you know your compliance position with Oracle? Do you know all of the current and alternative licensing options for the products you use? If your response to any of these questions is “no,” then Siwel can help.

Today, organizations of all sizes in all industries are able to collect a flood of new data from customers, vendors, the factory floor and the point of service delivery. The volume and variety of data are growing each day – especially from social media and from sensors embedded in devices that we use every day. This proliferation of machine-generated data resulting from increased interconnection of embedded devices with existing Internet infrastructure provides the greatest “big data” challenge. The companies that are the first to figure out how to use this new data most effectively will become the leaders in their markets – and those that don’t will lag behind.
Siwel Consulting has developed a platform that capitalizes on video analytics, enabling property casualty insurers to reduce lawsuits and settlements while also offering innovative, value-added services to their insureds, creating new sources of competitive advantage through enhanced customer value.
Siwel understands that it takes more than cutting edge hardware and software to help businesses succeed. It takes a team of dedicated professionals across multiple disciplines with more than just great functional knowledge – men and women with superior leadership and communication skills, unquestioned integrity and, above all, a passion for excellence.
