Sungard Availability Services - For business that never stops

Our services

As the pioneer of Managed Availability, we help organisations fulfil business outcomes. In the All-time™ world, success is judged on the dependability and availability of systems and data. But our job goes beyond simply keeping everything up and running to understanding how information availability fits into your bigger picture.

Cloud services

As cloud adoption gathers momentum, our services catalogue and repeatable processes enable our customers' IT departments to position themselves as cloud service brokers, and make themselves approachable to business units for advice, facilitation and support.

Data centre and managed services

Technology touches everything, yet it's practically invisible - until it fails. No business can afford to tie up unlimited capital in its data centre for contingency purposes, so rely on Sungard AS to provide continuous managed availability through our people, processes and infrastructure, to make the "always-on enterprise" a reality.

Business continuity and recovery

Could your business remain operational in adverse circumstances? At Sungard AS, we've been ensuring reliable recovery of businesses' critical functions in every conceivable scenario for over 30 years, supporting thousands of disaster declarations in complex environments.

Networks and security

Many outsource providers specialise in either networking or security, but Sungard AS can deliver the blend of managed services you need to span both disciplines. We bring both breadth and depth of experience to building and managing secure and resilient networks, so you can rely on us to deliver the services needed to keep you connected and protected at all times.

Applications and software

As your application environment grows in size and complexity, the job of keeping applications available is more demanding than ever. Sungard AS delivers application management and hosting services you can rely on, with enterprise-grade infrastructure, robust service level agreements and highly skilled application specialists.

IT consulting services

Sungard AS IT consulting services give you the benefit of world-class IT management consulting expertise, proven methodologies, and the ability to translate market dynamics and business drivers into workable strategies and tactical change programmes.
