Best-In-Class Sourcing Capabilities

IT sourcing is far from simple. First, you need a strategy.

Supplier pricing … contract terms … SLAs … site selection …

There are many variables to consider. So many metrics … and of course, long-standing, executive-level relationships between buyers and their suppliers. We cut 80% of the time and an average of 24% from your IT Opex.

We get that. Your IT service providers and suppliers are your strategic partners. In fact, chances are they are ours too. Further, many service providers are our clients, which enable u to cut through the sales red tape and reduce costs from both sides.

That 15-year history and our partner ecosystem position us uniquely to reshape the economics of your IT buyer-supplier relationships.

RampRate partners with you to help you implement your IT services strategies through the entire life cycle:

– Needs analysis and planning. Identify the right IT service to fill a current business need

– In-source vs. outsource. Develop a balanced comparison of cost, risk, and performance

– In-sourced optimization. Build a service catalog and price model to reflect underlying cost drivers

– Outsourced offer selection. Compress RFP cycles; convert diverse offers into a single apples-to-apples scorecard

– Mid-contract renegotiation. Identify and repair divergences from best practices in price and service

– Service reinvention. Embark on innovative models such as cloud, virtualization, PaaS, multi-supplier sourcing, etc.

A lot goes into making IT decisions with precision.

Innovative Sourcing Approaches

APPLICATION WORKLOAD SOURCING

A new approach to sourcing, application workload sourcing features a purpose, multiple tiers of importance, performance and resilience requirements. With this business model, the workload is optimized based on consumption, performance, behavior, and economic modeling.

RampRate recommends a pragmatic architecture to run applications to support current and future needs and creates accurate future state cost, risk and performance scores.

COST-OF-COMPUTE SOURCING

RampRate believes a cost-of-compute model delivers a truer economic model. An “all in” cost-of-compute dollar figure is used to reflect true costs. The figure changes based on the infrastructure services consumed in running applications and on the infrastructure costs.
