Business Case Analysis
Product Code: ANLS-BUS-CASE-01

There are basic deliverables that are always present in the output from this service. This foundation can be seen below:

  • Multiple scenarios each with:
    • Costs
    • Benefits
    • Risks
  • Modeling thresholds
  • Timeframe expectations
  • Cost perspectives:
    • Total cost of acquisition (TCA)
    • Total cost of operation (TCO)
    • Total cost of computing (TCC) 
  • Performance Model Verification (PMV) for the selected optimizations, if requested by client
    • Validates the success of the project Predictive Performance Model (PPM)
    • Examines the closeness of implementation decisions to the PPM assumptions and volumetrics
    • Articulates overall success of the implementation

Additional deliverables may be added to the output, based on the findings of the specific analysis.

The selection of an optimal strategic direction (i.e. platform, network, storage or application, etc.) must include both technical and business factors. The overriding perspective is a business one, since the impact of the selection is a difficult one to quantify purely on a technical level. SIL has a long history of providing clients a comprehensive and actionable analysis and summation of each unique business case. The resulting business case provides insight that helps substantiate executive decisions. The analysis offering leverages SIL’s unique approach, comprehensive data and proprietary intellectual property.

Meaningful data and information are extracted from SIL’s heuristic production data (200+ PB) by SIL’s AI processing. The risk profile is built via actuarial analysis, across very wide experiential content.

The building of the business case requires minimal client resources and time (days rather than weeks) to provide needed data for each scenario. SIL has unmatched speed of response, with the results produced in less than ¼ of the time required by other approaches. SIL’s proven record of accurate analysis, coupled with innovative and proprietary process using extensive real-world production data, results in clear and cogent information. The business cases are adjusted for global geography. SIL has extensive data covering North America, Europe, South America, Pacific Rim, China, and Africa making its business case analysis truly global in nature.
