  • Proactive Support

One of the key features of the COMBIS Platinum service is the special emphasis put on proactive support to prevent incidents, by review of implemented technologies and by consulting, using best practices of software product manufacturers. Such proactive approach will minimize the risk of failure of the ICT system's key elements, thus ensuring an optimum approach in further development of infrastructure. This kind of system support includes all necessary consulting, as well as employment of partner channels with the software product manufacturer for validation, verification and compatibility of the solutions that are being implemented.

COMBIS' experts, information system architects, will jointly with the customer be engaged in the selection and implementation of solutions according to the recommendations and results of performed system analysis. In addition to solution design development or, respectively, verification, the information system architects will transfer their know-how to customer; they will organize professional workshops for individual technologies and solutions and notify customers about new technologies that can improve their business; they will also provide consulting services in implementation of IT infrastructure surveillance and management systems.

In Platinum Support, COMBIS attaches a great deal of attention also to regular reviews and implementation of all critical upgrades of existing software solutions that are crucial for normal functioning of the information system. This support segment is one of the main prerequisites for achieving a satisfactory level of security of the entire system. In COMBIS Platinum Support, the user will be provided with all information on critical updates and patches, potential risks to system soundness, related to specific server infrastructure components. Such report will be provided to the user on a monthly basis or, in the case of critical updates, immediately upon their publication.

All kinds of upgrades are included in the support, depending on the current license. Other minor infrastructure projects may be implemented within the contracted number of hours for proactive support.

Effective reactive support is another key element of COMBIS Platinum Support. The reactive support process will be carried out in line with the Service Level Agreement which contains all the parameters required for quality service – from incident classification, degree of incident severity, to response time and escalation to the software or application solution manufacturer. It is important to note that Platinum Support provides guaranteed response of expert teams or individual specialists in the case of reactive maintenance or escalation of events that might slow, hamper or completely stop the functionality of any infrastructure segment (for which maintenance is contracted) to the software product manufacturer (egg. Microsoft).
