Case Study: Virtualization and Cloud Computing Staffing Engagement
TCM’s client, a worldwide business technology solutions and outsourcing integrator, needed to provide its customer a cloud-based IT application and infrastructure data center to support FDCCI and other key clients. Our integrator customer needed to deploy a team of Cloud and Virtualization Consultants to design, develop and implement its Cloud Computing platform and service offering. Our integrator customer’s HR organization began an aggressive hiring effort, but encountered significant challenges and delays in sourcing and recruiting these high-level experts due to a shortage of the needed skill level.
The Engagement: Faced with mounting schedule deadlines and time-to-market pressure, our customer turned to TCM as its strategic delivery partner to build the core of its design, development and implementation project team. Within weeks, TCM recruited and deployed the first members of a team of 12 Cloud and Virtualization Architects, Developers and Network Engineering resources, including the following:
- Cloud Architect
- Storage Architect
- VMware Architect
- CCIE/CCVP Architect
- Virtualization Architect
- MS Exchange/Mail Architect
- Citrix Engineer
- IT Service Management Architect
Outcome/Results: The TCM team was responsible for defining the product road map for our integrator customer FDCCI/cloud public sector service offerings, developing the IT Service Management solution and FDCCI Cloud Information-as-a-Service transition, consolidation and optimization plan, designing and developing the core Cloud and Virtualization infrastructure as well as the VMware-certified and Desktop Virtualization service offering and ensuring service commercial readiness through in-depth QA testing.
The Integrator’s Cloud Computing service offering has been recognized by Gartner Group as a leader in its Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service analysis.
