Industries

Energy, resiliency and continuity planning is specific to the individual facility or organization. Our consultative approach and straightforward methodologies allows our experts to assess conditions, plan improvements and provide  real-time data intelligence for your critical facilities.

Data Center

Data Centers require a holistic and thoughtful approach that goes beyond the securitization of data but  includes the security of the facility itself, namely the critical supporting infrastructure, such as energy and environmental resiliency.  A disruption in systems that support a critical operation can lead to a complete site failure.  Speed to recovery, or more importantly, mitigation of the risks prior to a failure are paramount when striving for true business continuity.  With the experience of over 6,000 engagements in data centers around the world WES’ consulting team has developed both the knowledge and experience to assist in the assessment and remediation of potential or actual challenges faced by forward thinking operators.

 

MSO / Telecom

Accurately understanding and monitoring critical MSO/telecom facilities is essential for delivering quality services to customers.  These facilities require a holistic and thoughtful approach that goes beyond the securitization of data but includes the security of the facility itself, namely the critical supporting infrastructure, such as energy and environmental resiliency.  MSO Edge facilities require specific performance and resiliency characteristics including the need for remote monitoring and alarming.  A disruption in systems that support critical operations can lead to a complete site failure.  Speed to recovery, or more importantly, mitigation of the risks prior to a failure are paramount when striving for true business continuity.  With the experience of over 6,000 engagements around the world WES’ consulting team has developed both the knowledge and experience to assist in the assessment and remediation of potential or actual challenges faced by forward thinking operators.

 

Manufacturing / Industrial

Managing an unplanned temporary to long term shutdown in production of a manufacturing/industrial site (refineries, pharmaceuticals, food production, etc.) can cause irreparable damage to the bottom line of your business. Costs associated with downtime can be upwards of hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue with every hour the facility isn’t running properly. The WES team can generate a discussion on best practices and a strong critical facility path application to follow in emergency situations. Detailed planning will help fortify a crucial infrastructure to avoid or minimize disruption caused by natural disaster, fire or equipment malfunctions.

Healthcare / Hospital

A proactive approach to risk management in a hospital or healthcare facility has never been more essential.  A power failure or loss of power to critical areas can result in serious loss of life, and a pro-active risk avoidance plan can provide lifesaving resiliency to a facility and the community it serves.  It’s imperative that medical facilities remain fully operational regardless of the depth or length of an outage. Confirming your facility’s resiliency plan is a strong course of action directly relating to your ongoing readiness to respond in a timely fashion.  WES consultants can assess the critical infrastructure of your facility and recommend any appropriate actions to provide true resiliency and continuity of any healthcare operation.

Government / Military

Any sudden, unplanned disruption or wide-scale breakdown at a government or military facility can be detrimental to the welfare and safety of the general populous.  Continuity of communication, contingency planning, life support systems, and information intelligence are key to rapid recovery and resiliency.  Rapid recovery and resiliency in the face of disaster requires advanced planning and proactive measures.  WES will assist in investigating viable options to defend against threats.  WES consultants can also provide insights and solutions for asymmetric threats to operations including EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) and GMD (Geo Magnetic Disturbance) risks.

Corporate

Operational susceptibilities in a commercial or corporate facility can significantly compromise business integrity.  Owners must truly understand the risks associated with communication breakdown and system failures.  For improved comprehension of what your liabilities are, speak with WES about ways to go beyond data protection and facilitating contingency plans. Resiliency is key whereby emergency planning can recover financial loss, damage to equipment or product, and avoid business interruption.  WES can offer visibility into advanced analytical anomaly detection, reporting, KPI's, data aggregation, and normalization.

Campus

Understanding the operations and energy consumption in your campus environment by accurately collecting and analyzing data from campus facilities, power, and environmental systems is critical to maintain efficiency and avoid the risk of failure.  The expert professional staff at WES will review current initiatives and make recommendations to avoid risks and expand capabilities in IoT and smart campus systems. The WES Team will also partner with you to deploy the tools and infrastructure systems to reduce operating costs and increase campus resiliency.
