Painting A Picture of a Current State Environment

Painting A Picture of a Current State Environment

A national Membership Association identified several key business objectives for growth.  They had disparate IT systems supporting multiple business units within the organization. Much of their infrastructure was hosted in a colocation facility and their strategic roadmap identified additional infrastructure that would be required to address business need. Supporting this infrastructure would put additional strain on the already stretched internal IT organization.

The IT organization did not have a clear picture of what was in their current environment, so there was no way for them to objectively determine how to best support the business needs of the organization in the future. In addition, there was considerable risk in trying to perform any vendor selections for new business applications, because the organization could not communicate to the vendors what environment they needed to integrate into.  Because much of the infrastructure was implemented based on specific initiatives, it was unclear what additional technology would be required.

How We Solved It

Trillium used its IT Current State Assessment process to do a deep dive to identify the client’s current IT infrastructure and to identify their current business and technical requirements.  We gathered inventory, conducted interviews and analyzed requirements to develop several future state alternatives for the infrastructure and the costs associated with the alternatives. The client used the information and insights that they had gained to set a Cloud first direction for future Infrastructure spend.

Results

  • Client Management had a clear picture of their current IT infrastructure.
  • Client had a Total Cost of Ownership model for alternatives to migrate core infrastructure components from a hosted environment.
  • A graphical representations and financial analysis enabled the organization to make strategic technology decisions.
