With a wealth of iSeries technical experience we are in a position to help with any area concerned with the technical aspects of AS/400, iSeries, System i and IBM Power.

It is worth looking briefly at each of these to highlight the expertise you can expect from Quattro but for a more detailed consultation please contact us on 07071 700 400 or send an email to imformation@quattroconsulting.co.uk

  • Security, High Availability, Disaster Recovery and Change Control


    The implications of iSeries security being misunderstood or incorrectly set up can be devastating. 

    Quattro have been involved in numerous projects involving individual processes for small businesses and worldwide corporations with the understanding that a "one size fits all" solution never applies.

    That is why why we have developed three different iSeries security products, designed to fit around your requirements.

    Whilst many view the iSeries as the most secure platform, utilities such as FTP, OBDC and SQL mean that further precautions are essential to avoid deliberate or accidental access as well as the tampering of vital data.

    Quattro provide a range of security solutions, which means we can find the right one for you.



    High Availability

    With a working knowledge of the major HA products but maintaining impartiality, we are able to provide an unbiased view of what will work best for you and your business.

    Whether that be helping to implement functionality that is free and already in your operating system or looking in depth at a full blown instant failover to a stand-by system in the event of system failure.

    The best solution is not always the most expensive solution; the best solution is the one that is right for you and your business. 

    So, if you need the ability to recovery to the start of day, re-key the day's transactions or even if you think you can survive a day or two with no IT systems, we are confident we can find the best solution for you.

    If you have ever considered that you need to safeguard you business against the risks associated with data loss, theft or corruption, then it is a very real threat to your business.

    Some simple actions today could make all the difference in the future.


    Disaster Recovery

    Do you have a disaster recovery plan? 

    Have you checked that it works? 

    Don't leave it to chance!  8 out of 10 of our reviews showed backups with insufficient data to recover the system. 

    How long can your business survive without its systems?  How far behind can you afford to be?

    Quattro can check that your backups are providing the information you need.  We find that a proactive approach today saves time and money in future when, in all likelihood, it is too late to do anything about it.



    Change Control

    Development Change Control and Application and Configuration Management are key areas in any project. 

    Quattro have a great deal of experience performing this type of work. 

    We adopt a hands on 'just do it' attitude to this role, which has proven extremely beneficial to the projects we have been involved with.

    Today's systems are complex, cross platform applications are far removed from the days of just releasing a new program to fix a bug or add new functions.

    Therefore, it is crucial that any change is properly controlled, tested, documented and released, together with a suitable roll back option for those very rare occasions when a change fails at some stage.


    We, at Quattro, fully understand the importance of non-disruptive implementation of change and can help facilitate this for you.
