Process

When we begin working with you, we first assess your current technology debt, bringing in key partners to integrate the technologies that are on your mind right now. We call this your “plumbing” which could be network connectivity, voice services, mobility, data center, cloud, infrastructure, custom software development, or security. But it gets better.

Offloaded Due Diligence and IT R&D

We provide a full 360° view of your company goals, making sure we are avoiding silos, overlap, or worse, breaking stuff that was working. But what the heck is IT R&D?

We also serve as an R&D extension to your current IT department (IT R&D). Our clients offload their due diligence onto us when exploring new technologies, tech hang-ups, problems, or even when chasing down those Lepricon riding unicorn tasks for the CEO. (Hey, it happens to the best of them.)

Our Four Filters

The partners we recommend must make it through our four filters. The first three filters are automation, visibility, and risk. The fourth filter is your unique needs and goals.

 

Automation

Whether it’s using machine learning or artificial intelligence, all solutions and technologies should be incorporating the ability to do more with less through automating as many functions where possible.

Visibility

Growing best-of-breed monitoring and alerting tools leads to multiple “watchers” with a lot of overlap—too much visibility translates to no visibility, overwhelming IT teams and engineers with “alert noise.” Best-of-breed tools that are enhanced through correlation or distillation technology provides true visibility by quieting the “noise” and allowing enterprises to fully use the toolsets they have already invested in.

Risk

All technologies have some risk associated with company size, support, architecture, people, existing integrations, financial stability, public vs private status, and compliance adherence. Any enterprise leader needs to anticipate all aspects of risk.

Your current goals and infrastructure

You are the most important filter. Our research, consulting, and resources are considered a cost of business and there is never a charge for this time. Some clients have been with us for years without spending a dime.
