Noltech, Inc. provides complete computer services to businesses of all sizes. We have extensive experience with servers, desktops, laptops, telephones, printers, and most things that utilize data networks. At Noltech, everything that we do is done with emphases on security, scalability, automation, centralized administration, standards compliance, and documentation. Well-acquainted with the technological problems that business face and current on latest technologies, we provide versatile solutions that continue to work and adapt for years to come.
Computer Systems Design, Deployment, and Administration with a Purpose (or 6)
At Noltech, we practice what we preach, take our own medicine, and love our idioms. Our small office has several servers and multiple data connections to host our own infrastructure and provide services to our customers. We host our own web, database, e-mail, and authentication services using a centralized system that uses the same technologies used by international corporations. We know that they are the same because we’ve helped build some of those, too.
Good infrastructure isn’t only for multinational conglomerates. It shouldn’t cost a year’s profits to buy and necessitate employees being tied up in countless training programs to have a good infrastructure. Good infrastructures are universal, and employees should be able to transition from one to another with minimal instruction. That kind of seamless interoperability can be hard to achieve, but it becomes much easier by adhering to certain guidelines and always keeping long-term goals in mind.
Eliminating repetitive job functions saves money and helps keep employees content. We implement technologies and processes that operate with minimal administration while giving our clients access to all of the functionality and data that they need, when they need it.
Having everything administered using a centralized infrastructure provides optimal efficiency, security, and scalability. Not to be confused with “putting your eggs in one basket”, keeping things like user accounts, passwords, and files in a unified construct also makes for easier duplication, allowing our clients to essentially clone their eggs and put identical baskets in as many locations as they choose. This also affords superior reporting capability for auditing of all kinds.
The most universally neglected aspect of environments of all scopes and sizes is documentation of every type that isn’t required by law. Records of work instructions and workflow, product registrations, service and lease agreements, and much other information is passed down informally (if at all), and it is rarely available when needed. We believe in keeping good records and keeping them readily available to those who need them. We are happy to document everything that we do and tailor our work instructions to audiences of all technical ability.
Our clients want to grow, and they need an infrastructure that allows them to do it quickly and easily, with minimal downtime. Large or small, a business’ failure to plan with expansion in mind can lead to vast, costly retrofitting and failures. A commonly known analogy to this concept is “Y2K”. The crisis would have never existed if businesses had looked forward a few years and used more information in the date field. Companies everywhere had throngs of people working to rectify the mistake at the last minute to add the digits “19″ to the beginning of their dates. Ironically, that still only gives a temporary solution; what will happen in the year 10,000? Noltech strives to remain cognizant of these minutia that can have devastating repercussions later.
Ensuring proper access to company resources is essential to its prosperity and is a primary focus at Noltech. For most companies, information is their most important asset. Attacks from within and without are very real concerns, and every component in a business’ infrastructure needs to be deployed with restrictive access as a necessity. Data also need to be backed up to secure locations to provide for timely recovery in the event of loss from an attack, accidental deletion, hardware failure, natural disaster, and other eventualities.
Observing established standards is crucial to continued interoperability. Even when not legally obligated to do so, standards should be employed, as they are best way to prepare for future advancements in software, hardware, accounting, and every aspect of a business.
