Systems Engineering

Intoto systems delivers enter­prise tech­nology designed for sustainable operations.  Our approach leverages automation technology to simplify the operation, management and maintenance of the system across the entire system lifecycle.

Virtual & cloud resources

Intoto exploits low-cost, on-demand access to computing, storage and networking resources in our system designs.  This enables powerful new operations and maintenance workflows.

Designed for change

Our DevOps approach to projects produces systems that support and simplify inevitable change. Infrastructure, applications and configuration changes must all be easy to discover, test, revert, repeat and monitor.


Never before has it been possible to manage systems for high availability and performance so easily.

DevOps technologies enable new operational practices that simplify the process burden required for tight configuration control.  Intoto incorporates these technologies in our systems, resulting in reliable, available, high performance systems – but with much simpler operation and management workflows.

intoto systems services

All of intoto’s services are influenced by our Agile development approach.  We believe in continuous demonstration and client feedback.  This gives us the ability to course-correct until the deliverable is exactly right for our client.

Intoto adopts a whole-system perspective, considering both technical and business needs.  Our interdisciplinary approach is applied through all phases of the design and deployment process, integrating sub-specialties into a single team deliverable.

Our goal for every project is to deliver not only a well-engineered product, but to ensure that our client has the capacity to continuously manage and sustain the system – designing, testing and implementing change as necessary to support the business at it develops.

  • Systems Engineering

    Design of complex information technology systems involving hardware, third-party applications and services, custom software, and operational processes.
