At Apex OmniSource, we follow a proven engagement process that we call ROI 360. The relationship we establish with our agents and clients follows this lifecycle to meet your immediate business need and long-term strategic goals. As a strategic overlay, Apex OmniSource will:
• Provide full “mark to market” visibility into your existing IT budget and contracts and how they can be optimized using both current and new technologies, best practices and platforms
• Build a roadmap of potential initiatives to provide quick impact on IT budget, shore up infrastructure resiliency, and mitigate business risk with focus on empowering the business through modern IT practices
• Initiate re negotiations with current vendors and source new vendors if needed, utilizing current data center marketplace knowledge and experience
• Assist with internal organizational approach to get project approvals and move initiatives forward
Our experience and insight will build the right solution for you.
Step 1: Review
The first step is for us to review your current situation and future needs. This involves a detailed technical and business review that allows us to map your existing applications, services, contracts, providers, teams and related infrastructure to your primary business goals and drivers. This review will cover details of all mission critical IT and facilities. Services will include the following:
• Physical Hardware Assets
• Managed Hosting
• Disaster Recovery
• Data Center & Colocation
• Transit / Transport
• SDWAN & Network Optimization
Step 2: Optimize
Once the review is completed and we have developed a total cost of ownership model, we can provide detailed data-based recommendations that outline how to best optimize the environment and/or modernize it while supporting both the strategic business goals and operational initiatives. Depending on what is uncovered during the first stage, these recommendations will include the following:
• Vendor Selection
• Physical Migration
• Virtual Migration
• Contract Negotiation
• Location Migration
• RFP Management
• Equipment Financing
• IT Spend Analysis
Step 3: Implement
The final phase of our process comes only after we have reviewed our recommendations with you and we come to a clear understanding around how you would best like to proceed, given the data presented. This phase will include:
• Tactical Assignments & Responsibilities
• Outline for Ongoing Project Management
• Written Statement of Work
• 15+ consecutive years of experience in the data center marketplace.
• $166.5M total savings achieved – 37% average IT savings provided for our clients post engagement.
• $450M+ TCV (Total Contract Value) negotiated.
