Our Project Methodology
After evaluating many approaches to the delivery of technology solutions, we have adopted Cisco’s lifecycle methodology. This approach reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), improves agility, and increases access to required applications and services.
|Prepare||Determine the business requirements, assess the current state, and document the technology strategy to produce a high level design for the network.|
|Plan||Develop a project plan that manages risk, identifies resources, and allocates them to a schedule. The acceptance tests to be applied to the project are specified to ensure the outcome of the project.|
|Design||Produce a comprehensive, detailed low level design and refine the project plan as required.|
|Implement||Deliver the solution according to the plan, execute the acceptance tests, and document the result.|
|Operate||Use the solution in production without major changes while monitoring performance, reliability, availability.|
|Optimize||Determine if the technology deployed is still in alignment with evolving business needs. If changes are required, the process begins again.|
