Deployment Models

CHANGING TECHNOLOGY ROLE • ACQUISITION MODELS • FLEXIBLE OPTIONS

Whether you are looking at a project or phased deployment, we are here to help.

Technology integration is no longer a luxury, but a critical foundation to operations. That being the case, it’s not always easy to afford. We understand there are multiple ways organizations implement technology projects. Traditionally, project deployments are split into up front or phased deployment models. We review these and present our managed service delivery as a superior value choice. That said, we are here to help on any path your organization takes.

Phased Project

Opportunity cost and overhead.

Opportunity cost is the utility lost by not having the functionality of a complete solution on day one of project completion. For example, a new wireless infrastructure might not yet have security or network edge upgrades implemented. This leads to inefficiency. Each year in a multiyear, or phased implementation, time is spent integrating legacy equipment from previous years. Additionally, generational gaps in the technology present a continued requirement for extra support even after the phased project is completed.

Ideal for effeciency but a budgetary challenge.

With upfront installation, there is less maintenance over the course of the project. Overhead is lowered by using generationally compatible hardware and installing everything at once. Not starting and stopping over the course of the project leads to administrative savings. Organizations benefit from the utility of the full solution on day one, fully eliminating opportunity costs. The challenge of this model is it can be difficult to budget for as the entire solution cost is paid in the first year.

Up Front Project

Managed Service Delivery

Greater value with immediate utility.

Managed Service Delivery provides the best of both worlds. The overall costs are less than a phased project approach as it eliminates much of the administrative overhead and all of the opportunity costs. It also ensures optimal service of the solution, providing higher value for the investments made. The operational nature of Managed Service Delivery creates costs with predictable outcomes within budget.
