As a leader in engineering services, this organization has been growing - adding people, systems, and software to accomodate new business needs. While the technology platform has been stable, the organization wanted an objective way to measure their technology capabilities in order to prioritize IT projects.
Oakwood consultants performed a Core Infrastructure Optimization Assessment to identify the maturity level of the organization with regard to the network instructure. The assessment reviews capabilities in the areas of Identity and Access Management, Platform Management, Security and Networking, Data Protection and Recovery, and IT processes. The assessment results include a summary of how the organization compares to other companies of similar size in the same industry, the maturity levels across the measured areas, and the financial benefits to be realized by increasing the maturity levels in the identified areas for improvement.
The organization now has a detailed assessment of its core infrastructure as well as an analysis of the business cost savings to be realized by moving up in the optimization model. The assessments findings along with Oakwood's recommendations have formed the basis of a strategic infrastructure roadmap that will allow the organization's IT leadership to prioritize IT projects in order to achieve maximum financial and operational benefits.
