Pivot3, vendor of security, Internet of Things (IoT) and hybrid cloud infrastructure solutions, introduced on Tuesday the Pivot3 Architect and Engineer (A&E) Program. This initiative will provide architects, engineers and consultants with the resources and support needed to make intelligent decisions when specifying infrastructure platforms at the core of enterprise-class IoT, video surveillance and security solutions for their clients.
The Pivot3 A&E Program is intended to help specifiers and their clients address the complexities of planning, designing, deploying and managing compute and storage infrastructure for today’s sophisticated security applications including video surveillance, analytics, access control, building management and all other integrated systems.
A&E firms will gain access to a variety of resources that can be used to facilitate projects based on Pivot3’s high-performance, ultra-dense, highly resilient solutions that reduce risk, eliminate downtime and data loss, and simplify scale and management. With Pivot3, A&E firms can specify one common infrastructure to consolidate multiple applications and solutions — manageable through a single pane of glass.
Pivot3 A&E Program members will have access to document development and review assistance with specifications, proposals, and commissioning and acceptance plans; A&E resources including CSI MasterFormat 2018 specification documents, 3D BIM Modules for AutoDesk Revit, MS Visio stencils and templates, and CAD drawings; solution development and design support including review of system architecture, sizing and workload/throughput calculations, and application validation. It also provides dedicated A&E support contact and local support from Pivot3’s solution architects and regional sales directors, with material such as design guides, best practices and white papers; and training, webinars and newsletters.
“Pivot3’s A&E program seeks to provide the advanced tools and enhanced support necessary to specify infrastructure solutions that serve as the backbone of intelligent environments,” said Ray Bernard, president and principal consultant, Ray Bernard Consulting Services. “Pivot3 understands the specific needs of both the security and IT markets, as well as the design and deployment challenges in each domain. The company has the in-depth deployment experience needed in both to effectively support system designers and specifiers in all stages of design and deployment work. The team also understands the client perspectives and issues, and the IT-physical security collaboration dynamics. This new program demonstrates Pivot3’s commitment to helping system designers access the expertise and tools needed to design enterprise-class, IT-proven solutions.”
“The availability of dedicated Pivot3 contacts and resources will help the A&E community consider, design and ultimately, deliver infrastructure solutions that ensure the performance resiliency, and scalability that their customers’ mission-critical environments demand,” said Mike Maddox, director of A&E programs, Pivot3. “The Pivot3 A&E Program will provide the tools, insight and support necessary to achieve the successful design of enterprise-grade, IT-ready infrastructure solutions for a variety of applications and markets.”
