Key Benefits

  • Control your existing resources,
  • Reallocate resources to make “head room”.
  • Then, ask for additional help.

Our capabilities come from having:

  • developed budgets for WANs, MANs, LANs, platforms, applications, datacenter, departmental, business unit, and user groups.
  • led cost recovery efforts to extract sunken funds from the “dead or dying” to fuel the “new and necessary”.
  • reconciled budget to actual, projected actual to next year, and other similar analyses. Many times!
  • created requests for new resources. (After having had many experiences being grilled, make requests stand up to questioning and scrutiny.)

Observation: You can only ask for more “bandwidth”, if you demonstrate you are in control, if you have “squeezed”, and if you have a “tight” case.
