engagement starts with this planning stage for a major operational
system or platform integration/migration effort.
This comprehensive review of your current environment will
provide an in-depth evaluation of business requirements, plans,
architectures, and designs of operational systems and platforms.
This early-stage service allows you to identify and mitigate
risks and realize benefits of the new technology quickly.
The in-depth deliverables outline risk areas, areas needing

document to serve as the blueprint for the new infrastructure. This
document encompasses every critical component of the new infrastructure
including those areas most often overlooked such as change control,
incorporation into a current disaster recovery plan, systems management
and systems maintenance after the implementation has gone live.
have finished the planning and design stage of a solution, Pilot
Services will deliver a prototype or pilot for a particular project.
This service will empower you to mitigate technical risks and/or
accelerate the formation of a project team prior to the development or
deployment of your IT solution. The Infrastructure Design is validated
and optimized through the use of this pilot. This may include a set of
live users in which a usability survey would be conducted to ensure a
high level of satisfaction.
