DCMWORKS: Experts In IT Relocation
Leave Your IT Relocation To The IT Relocation Experts
Lease expirations, growth, and consolidations present a challenge for corporations of all sizes. When these types of events occur it requires coordination between real estate, finance, facilities and IT departments. Planning and support for these events creates additional work above and beyond the IT department’s primary role within the organization.
Relocations require a unique blend of technical knowledge and construction expertise to lead the planning, design, budgeting and management of the work effort. DCMWORKS is comprised of a diverse team with network, storage, security, application development, structured cable plant, and telecommunications backgrounds.
DCMWORKS develops the IT relocation budget with the documentation of risks, costs and decisions for ratification by business units and management. DCMWORKS develops a migration plan where all tasks are designed, executed and tracked when the move date arrives. Once the project is complete DCMWORKS assists with the IT decommissioning effort at the site being vacated.
DCMWORKS’ design services provide the technology infrastructure required to support employees and business functions within the building footprint. Our design team leads the initial discovery phases to understand the function of the facility and employees it will house. Design and coordination disciplines include: data and voice cabling, telecommunications, network and storage systems, Distributed Antenna System (DAS), wireless, security, AV, and MDF/IDF layouts. DCMWORKS also offers RFP management, contract administration, and design/build.
DCMWORKS serves as IT’s representation for the construction project through all phases of an IT relocation. Our IT Project Manager serves as the single point of contact for IT vendor coordination both pre and post construction. We manage all project related tasks and coordination until the systems have all been commissioned and/or relocated, and our client has successfully moved into their new space.
DCMWORKS provides a highly detailed IT relocation assessment – a blueprint of the costs, time and risk associated with your IT relocation customized to your organization’s specific needs. This roadmap will help you avoid the pitfalls associated with IT relocations that are often overlooked when a company’s internal team plans a relocation. Let our experience keep your relocation on time and on budget.
A DCMWORKS server assessment leads to major cost savings, increased efficiency and the identification of unprotected systems. While servers can run for years without attention, the back end technology provided by the servers needs regular maintenance on the installed software and occasional maintenance on the hardware itself.
The DCMWORKS team brings decades of experience managing storage, networks, applications, and mission critical facilities. This unique blend of experience gives us the knowledge to understand business requirements as well as the IT systems involved in executing a successful IT relocation.
