SPY INDEX PROCESS: THE FASTEST, MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO SOURCE YOUR IT INFRASTRUCTURE

SPY INDEX Platform

Get Clarity on Your Current Spend, Service Inventory, and Performance
Simply understanding what they’re buying, from whom, and for how much is a challenge for many RampRate customers, especially those with many acquisitions or decentralized buying. RampRate’s Inform service helps customers get a snapshot of their starting point, which can then be used to plan and measure improvement.
 

CAPTURING DECISION-MAKER PRIORITIES

 

SPY INDEX Platform

Identify the Best-Fit Target Outcome by Seeing Both End State and Transition Process
Once there is an understanding of the current state, you can start thinking about a potential target outcome. The range of these can be as simple as buying the same solution cheaper or a comprehensive redesign to move from traditional colocation to cloud, offshored support to highly automated “robotic” processing, or switched voice-to-SIP trunking or VoIP. Regardless of what’s on your roadmap, RampRate’s Interpret toolset is designed to understand the potential end states of your infrastructure strategy and compare them to the current situation to measure the upside of required changes.

SPY INDEX Platform

Design the Right Spec for Your Business Needs
With the current state and all the potential changes mapped, it’s now time to decide which of the solutions you actually want to go with – or, if it’s an especially close call, to defer the decision until you see actual supplier offers. RampRate’s Optimize service manages the process of creating internal consensus on the direction and then turns that consensus into a detailed spec to use in obtaining the best-fit solution in the Execute phase.
