Siwel 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.

Siwel Partner Overview

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.

Software Asset Management

Software Asset Management Services Overview

Siwel has been designing and implementing software 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.

Software License Position Services

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.

SAM Contract Advisory

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.

ITAM Program Assessment and Design

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.

Lifecycle Management Services

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.

SAM Services for Oracle

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. Siwel can help guide you to make sure you have the most favorable terms and conditions, know your your compliance position, and understand all of the current and alternative licensing options for your Oracle products you use.

Mainframe Asset Management Services

Organizations today understand the benefits and the need for a mature IT Asset Management (ITAM) Program, and are investing heavily in the tools, resources and training necessary to effectively manage their critical software and hardware assets. However, IT Asset Management shouldn’t be limited to just your servers and desktops, and the software that resides on them. There is also a significant opportunity for cost avoidance and savings by managing the assets in your mainframe environment.

Tools Optimization Services

Siwel can help you to select the right SAM process tool, implement its’ use and provide ongoing maintenance if you lack dedicated resources. Our teams work with Concorde, Eracent, Flexera, IBM and Snow. Our clients will gain the most from their tool investments by ensuring more productive and successful implementations and usage.

SAM Services for IBM

Siwel’s team of IBM licensing experts can review your IBM entitlements baseline and establish your IBM compliance position. This will identify areas of risk and allow us to propose recommendations and identify opportunities to maximize your IBM software license utilization and investment in IBM software. Siwel’s analysts can provide you with guidance, strategy and direction about the management of your IBM contracts as well as negotiation strategy for upcoming contracts.

Data Analytics

Big Data Services

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.

Video Analytics Platform

Siwel 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. 

Body Worn Cameras Overview

Body Worn Cameras for police has become a very hot topic; at least 29 states have passed or are considering legislation mandating use by every officer. Police departments in many U.S. cities and municipalities are struggling with how to quickly store and digest the video, then categorize, archive and manage this potential evidence data. It’s imperative to have a high-performance, dense and scalable storage solution to accomplish this critical task. Ease of use and reliable tech support are critical factors for police who must maintain custody of this data for extended periods, with limited budgets, and without additional time requirements or administrative headaches.

Back Up & Recovery

BU/DR for Virtual Environments

Are you happy with your current backup infrastructure?  Do you sleep well at night, confident that  your backups will run successfully night after night?  Are you confident that when disaster strikes, you can recover any “lost” data?  Will you be able to restore VMs and data quickly, so your business - and your bottom line - are largely unaffected?

Cloud-Based BU/DR 

When you consider backing up your critical workloads to the cloud, are you “all-in” – or do you lose sleep at night worrying about whether they will always be there when you need them? Siwel partners with Veeam to help you maximize the cloud opportunity as part of a comprehensive Availability strategy to extend your on-premises infrastructure to the hybrid cloud.

In a knowledge economy, the organizations with the best talent win. From our beginning more than 20 years ago, Siwel has understood 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.
