Global Multisite Deployments: The Process
In a digital world accelerated by the impacts of COVID-19, it is no shock that 63% of organizations have embraced digital transformation sooner than expected. This involves upgrading infrastructure to support IoT, SD-WAN, Wi-Fi 6, and AI across all company locations. But, deploying IT infrastructure across global locations can be a daunting and time-consuming project. That’s when having the right process and right global deployment partner can help ease the integration of new technology.
Before thinking about your deployment planning process, one of the most important stages is selecting a global solutions partner. The right global deployment partner should align with your business goals, requirements, and quality standards across all company locations and create rapid digital transformation within budget. A global solutions integrator should be able to provide boots on ground across dispersed locations for seamless end-to-end collaboration. Your partner should also have a working knowledge of local labor laws and available skill-sets to avoid missteps and delays.
When choosing the right partner, it is important to understand all the components of global multisite deployments. To learn more about what a global multisite deployment is, check out our recent blog “The Challenges of Global Multisite Deployments”
Steps of a Global Multisite Deployment
Having a repeatable procedure to deploy, install, and maintain IT technology across multiple company sites should be an easy task, right? Well not quite.
The process of a global rollout extends far beyond installing the technology. It requires design, configuration, testing, maintenance, and troubleshooting. Replicating the deployment process requires a trusted rollout partner who provides niche skillsets and follows an exacting methodology. The location may change, but the process remains the same, which includes:
The deployment plan is based on your company’s global IT business plan and incorporates budget, security, delivery, and system integrations concerns.
The design plan is where people and materials are allocated, coordinated, and assigned to create an install sequence that is repeatable across dispersed company locations with little room for interpretation.
To prepare your IT deployment sites, per-site deliverables are staged and made ready prior to shipping. Additional survey checks ensure all necessary equipment is included for the deployment.
Day zero. Install begins. Depending on your company’s requirements, this can be done in a pilot test at one site before rolling out to other locations. Or the deployment can start at several sites simultaneously.
Day 1. This includes support, troubleshooting, and testing the day after installation to ensure the technology is working to your expectations.
This involves support and maintenance by the install team through the hand-off of the IT infrastructure to the company team.
What to Expect after an IT Rollout?
An IT rollout can be difficult to undertake yourself. But when entrusted to a global solutions partner, you’ll gain benefits that extend far beyond the ease of deployment. You’ll keep up with industry trends and have a trusted partner that will take care of all the key deliverables, such as:
The blueprint for deploying, installing, and maintaining digital IT infrastructure across dispersed company locations
Globalization project timeline
The timeframe agreed upon to complete the deployment and installation process for all company sites
The rollout partner’s visual representation of all company requirements for a successful global IT deployment
The manpower needed to support, plan, and execute global multisite deployments for your company
The partner's local Centers of Excellence (CoEs) can supply the right skill-sets in deployment areas
A well-versed partner can reduce deployment costs by sourcing material and manpower locally.
The scale, scope, and significance of a global deployment leave little room for error. That’s why partnering with an experienced global integrator can give you peace of mind that the project will be done right through exacting processes and methodologies in every location.
