Rollout Impact Analysis

Rollout Impact Analysis
Product Code: ANLS-ROLLOUT-01

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

  • Workload definition and sizing write-up
  • Methodology outline 
  • Overview of significant risk points and growth patterns
  • Compliance analysis
  • Threshold analysis 
  • Risk analysis
  • Topology changes, as needed
  • Impact forecast report
  • Definition of outstanding issues
  • Performance Model Verification (PMV) for 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.

Many organizations have chosen to implement enterprise-wide applications over time, and split by functional area or business unit. As each of these groups of additional features or users is added into the system load, the performance characteristics of the system can change significantly. Whether the rollout is for an internally-developed system or a COTS product such as SAP ERP, J.D. Edwards, etc., SIL can assist in the accurate projection of workload, challenges and strategic impact.

This type of analysis tends to be very complex, with many different possible areas of risk, decision points, etc. Due to the complexity, SIL’s deliverables are structured in groups, divided by the main strategy.

This service normally includes an ongoing oversight relationship with SIL, since small changes in the rollout plan and base implementation can result in significant changes in the impact, as time, and thought leadership, progresses.
