My company is expanding somewhat and we are looking to upgrade our current it infrastructure where necessary. Are there some online consultant agencies that can gather information about our current setup and determine what kinds of solutions might help enhance our existing setup?  I am currently collecting information about our network, assets, phone system etc etc to be able to present to a consulting agency for assessment and quotation. I am in Alberta Canada and am in a rural area so finding easy access to local IT providers makes it somewhat of a challenge.

The objective is best achieved if you has scope of what needs to enhance since running the business for a while, if it is tech refresh then it is probably more straightforward and get the application provider to suggest. if it is major rework as scale of business is expanding beyond local rural and into other state or county then this need more considerations to ensure services resiliency and overall risk management. Outsourcing services and having managed services is another agenda to re-focus core business and have other "supporting" services in the infrastructure offloaded to managed services

Below are some for consideration but do ask them on the use case and "success factor" for each engagement even before assessing your infrastructure. Cost optimised with the revamp will be key since we do not want to burn the pocket.

I work for a Consulting company that does some business in Canada, though mostly eastern Canada. What size is your environment?
