Our Lifecycle Methodology

People believe, inaccurately, that a technology service engagement is a project.  The reality is it is only a project if you walk away once completed.

End User Computing is not easy nor is it ‘plug-n-play.’

This is a planned, complex integration of technology, applications, security and corporate governance.  It requires an understanding of hybrid integration as well as the creation of, movement of, and management of data to ensure flexibility to access that data anytime, anywhere on any device.

LANStatus’ Lifecycle methodology of ASSESS, DESIGN, DEPLOY, MANAGE and EVOLVE is executed with a singular focus on a client’s success by reducing client risk, accelerates time to value and then the capability to support each client after deployment as they evolve through the technology lifecycle.

In 2023, with vendor changes, our methodology returns to the forefront as LANStatus has again been put into the position of ensuring client’s (Direct, Vendor, or SIP Program Integrator/Reseller client) success with a consistent, confident, integrated and secure infrastructure to realize their company objectives.

Many companies talk about the services to provide end-to-end client support but at LANStatus, it is what we have always done.

Tactical Vision

Every company executive should have a vision. 

However, in today’s changing world of regulation, audits, and oversight, how do you define the requirements to meet your vision?

It begins with a conversation, an outline and the flexibility to deliver a client’s long-term, business vision without sacrificing the underlying goal for growth.  It is the gathering of quantifiable data to clarify and define a technology strategy roadmap with tactical execution points to create a tangible reality of their vision. 

Key to Success; Abstraction Layer

The Abstraction Layer is the integration point where for all End User Computing technology components are joined with company policy.

Return On Investment (ROI) or Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) are all key points of the sales process but our question; How much of your technology are you using today and is it following policy?

Did your professional services come with a plan?   Did you intend to have the solution work immediately after deployment or did you plan to ‘limp along’ for 6-months, still paying for professional services, until you work out all the issues? (like that never happens, huh?)  Were you planning on a tech refresh with the same technology that you are only using 20%, 40% or 50% of today?

There is uncertainty with every technology deployment with no shortcuts or special processes because every client engagement is a custom-designed solution to meet the Client’s requirements.  That is why we execute a structured process to ensure a less painful, seamless and operational solution upon completion that increases the client’s potential ROI/TCO.

Yes, it is the hardware and software but also the operating components of an infrastructure but executing a Proof of Concept / Value and Pilot deployments fixes the solution issues over 90% of the time.

This is the LANStatus difference!
