A key element in the success of Citrix Consulting is the proven methodology which takes each project through the critical steps from inception through operations. Our approach focuses on ensuring that projects are properly planned and designed before implementation begins, so that the end project minimizes your risk and delivers maximum business impact.
Now that virtualization is a strategic imperative to compete in the market, and with cloud computing and mobile devices becoming more prominent in the enterprise, corporate IT departments are being pushed to incorporate new technologies at an ever faster pace. Citrix Consulting can assist in the definition of the strategy that will help your business take full advantage of these technologies, including:
Assess, Design, Deploy
Citrix Consulting follows an Assess > Design > Deploy process for each major initiative of your project. In doing so, your organization is left with a tangible improvement to the environment at the end of each engagement.
During the Assess phase, Citrix Consulting reviews your current environment, identifies use cases and gathers detailed requirements for the project. This information allows us to define the project success criteria and set the direction for your proposed Citrix deployment, upgrade, or expansion.
The design phase defines the architecture and operational processes required to implement and maintain the production environment that will satisfy your success criteria. Topics such as environment scalability, redundancy and high availability are addressed. Citrix Consulting will apply best practices for performance tuning to help your environment perform at its best.
During the Deploy phase, Citrix Consulting creates and configures the environment to meet the specifications from the Design phase. This includes supporting the integration of any applications that have been identified in the design and performing thorough testing of all infrastructure components. Citrix Consulting will also guide you through a phased rollout approach to mitigate risk and ensure a successful deployment.
For the long-term health of your Citrix environment, Citrix Consulting can be engaged to perform the continued monitoring and administrative tasks in several different capacities. With onsite and remote delivery capabilities, Citrix Consulting has the experience to keep your environment stable and your users happy.
Having Citrix consultants involved in the project increased the efficiency and shortened the lead time for solution design and implementation.
