In any project which involves a corporate-wide system upgrade, the overall success of the project relies upon the careful preparation and timing of the hundreds of tasks essential to complete the job. Global Edge understands that there are three fundamental yet diverse aspects to a technology implementation: Technical Considerations, Implementation Coordination, and Support Transition.
For the Technical Considerations, Global Edge's Project Management staff begins by working closely with your internal Information Technology personnel or Application Owner, to discover all of the systems that are currently in use which may be affected by the upcoming system changes. A new system is designed, discussed, revised and documented to prepare a blueprint of the needed outcome. The entire project is broken down into discrete individual tasks which are planned step-by-step in order to transition the present environment into the future architecture, with the risks of outages and downtime minimized.
A carefully planned Implementation Management usually means the difference between a smooth project and a total disaster. A inadequately planned execution results in loss of efficiency, end-user downtime, and a generally unconstructive awareness of both the new system and the I.T. department. Global Edge possesses immeasurable knowledge in keeping all project participants, department managers and end-users thoroughly informed during the course of the project, so that the expectations of the implementation are always exceeded, and all considerations have been addressed to make sure that the transition to the new system happens as effortlessly as possible.
Upon completion of the implementation, a Support Evolution occurs as Global Edge's engineering staff prepares your in-house I.T. staff for the responsibility of maintaining the new systems. Basic administrator training is always included in the scope of the project. In most cases, our clients engage us on a customized managed services support program after the project's completion, in which Global Edge's engineering staff continues to maintain, monitor and perform emergency troubleshooting services for a period of usually 3-12 months, depending on the time period in which their internal support staff is capable and at ease in thoroughly supporting the new environment. In many cases, our clients continue to use Global Edge's managed services for support on an ongoing basis, so that the internal staff can focus on business process-related and application-level improvements.
