PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

VD Networks tailor-makes a string of IT services to strengthen short-term services like technical consultations as well as longer-duration programs or projects. This supplies clients with project planning flexibility to enhance their businesses.

VD Networks determines the exact services they need from a broad collection of options. After working with a client to confirm their requirements, services are then prepared. If a broader need exists for IT maintenance functions, those needs can be merged to create a recurring program executed on a weekly, monthly, and annual basis.

Professional Services also is offered as a part of partner programs—architecture and design, installations, capacity planning, and performance tuning, to name some examples.

VD Networks holds Gold and Platinum status with numerous vendors (e.g., Microsoft, HP, Citrix, Cisco, VMWare, Nutanix, plus numerous others). This enables benefits such as direct access to vendor knowledge grounds and in-depth technical engineering support facilities and personnel sourced from individual IT providers.

In choosing the finest methods that pertain to our client's interests, we take a vendor-agnostic approach when recommending and implementing service-based solutions. VD Networks specifically assesses the requirements of each client, then develops solutions drawn from products sourced from a wide array of vendors to enable a “best fit” solution.

VD Networks believes that a sound plan will produce more predictable outcomes. There are three core pillars: People, Process, and Technology. Each must be defined and integrated with the other to provide a sound strategy.

  • People are core to any successful plan
  • Process links people to business

Technology is the physical conduit by which all of these plans and strategies are enacted

.

When embarking on the planning activities, one must understand that these activities should be part of an on-going program to keep the organization nimble in a rapidly changing business climate. As business cycles continue to shrink, leaders must constantly iterate plans to keep their organization competitive.

.

VD Networks leverages its most senior people to collaborate with C-level executives, facilitating sessions to create and update these plans and risk management strategies. Regarding the latter, there are many risks an organization must deal with:

  • Security
  • Identity
  • Reputational

…and others that directly impact one’s technology platform. VD Networks partners with many companies to mitigate these risks as both an advisory and implementation partner.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

The VD Networks Management Office (PMO) builds long-term client relationships as it sets and maintains enterprise-level execution standards for all project engagements.

With expertise gained from over two decades’ worth of projects spanning a highly diverse set of clients and service offerings, VD Networks Project Managers (PMs) are flexible and easily adjust to working within each stakeholder’s individual corporate culture. At VD Networks, the PMO ensures that PMs directly collaborate and communicate with clients throughout a project’s lifecycle, while transitioning them into ongoing maintenance and support. As trusted advisors, VD Networks PMs work with C-level, director-level, and technical engineering personnel and play an integral role in ensuring long-term client satisfaction and retention.

VD Networks' PMO sets and maintains best practice standards; the PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) implementation framework is followed for every project. As part of this protocol, PMs review all scope details including deliverables, task dependencies, and prerequisites with the client prior to delivery.

The PMO’s project governance provides a clearly defined process for our PMs to use. This includes technical discipline templates along with project metrics which set the stage to ensure implementation efficiency. It also empowers PMs to perform effective planning, communicate to the project team at all times, deliver within scope, perform effective issue escalation and risk mitigation, and implement change orders as required.

The VD Networks PMO provides an ongoing relationship for clients. PMs have access to all VD Networks and Partner resources to best advise our clients. All of this ensures a seamless client engagement, whereby all project milestones are executed in a timely manner and remain within an allocated budget.

A detailed project plan outlining initiation, progress, and completion of tasks and pertinent milestones is utilized to ensure project timelines and goals are met.
