BVA’s Consulting Methodology

Comprised of the six phases listed above, each building on its predecessor.  The early phases identify, quantify, and build an effective project plan.  Later phases put the plan into action.

 

                                                                       

Assess, Plan & Design, Verify, Implement, Transition and Support

Phase 1: Assess

During the Assessment phase, BVA works with the client to analyze the current systems and business processes to align project goals with the strategic direction of the company.

The deliverables for this phase include: A high-level phased project plan outlining the future path to achieve the goals and objectives. A document that will include project scope, objectives, deliverables, and costs for Phase Two.

Phase 2: Plan & Design

The Plan & Design phase combines BVA’s industry experience and client specific information into a plan of action. BVA develops a comprehensive plan outlining the project’s purpose, requirements, business objectives, and performance metrics. All elements of the project plan are intended to achieve the strategic targets and business drivers for the project.  The deliverables for this phase include: A task-level project plan outlining the steps to achieve the project goals and objectives.  A document outlining approximate costs for hardware, software, professional services, and other necessary expenditures for the remaining phases of the project.

Phase 3: Verify

Using the custom solution designed in Phase 2, BVA will build and configure the solution in a test lab or as a pilot in the “production” network environment.  As part of this phase, BVA will conduct system tests to verify that the solution will function properly in the client’s IT environment.  If needed, changes to the proposed design will be made in this phase.  Using the finalized project design, an implementation plan will be created that will be used in Phase 4.  The deliverables for this phase include:  A fully configured test lab or pilot solution.  A tested transition plan to the new solution.  A go-live fail back contingency plan

Phase 4: Implement

Working closely with the client, BVA Consultants will determine the optimum time to perform the implementation plan created in Phase three.  The final production environment will then be deployed and brought online.  The deliverables for this phase include: A solution implemented into the production environment.  Performance optimization of the solution to meet the client’s expectations.  Knowledge transfer to the client throughout this phase and the remaining phases of the project.

Phase 5: Transition

When the production environment has been accepted by the client, the conditions are met to go live.  During this phase user accounts, data, and other pertinent information are transitioned to the new system.  The deliverables for this phase include:  Fully functioning solution that satisfies the requirements determined in Phases one and two.  Documentation on the new solution.

Phase 6: Support

The proposed solution is now live.  To assist client’s with the transition, BVA Consultants can assist internal teams with support and troubleshooting tasks.   The deliverables for this phase include:  Ownership of the project transferred to the client’s internal team.  All project support activities will be moved to the internal production support team.

Why Choose Us

Our History

1993 - 2003

bva begins life as a technology partner here in Arizona focusing on doing primarily project work via platform migrations, upgrades, back up solutions, and overall strategy. bva’s niche was doing Novell to Microsoft migration for directory services, email, and operating system/applications. Working with most of AZ City’s and Credit Unions allowed bva to gain a large market-share and increased our head count up to 65 people.

2004 - 2009

bva launches our managed services practice due to the many requests from our clients for ongoing support. bva decided to partner with many vendors to help achieve this by installing an enterprise ticketing system and monitoring platform for all devices. bva grows our Helpdesk staff up to 10 personnel as well as granular policies and SOP’s to ensure proper SLA’s are being met.

 

2010 - Present

bva increased our personnel on the managed services desk and grew our client list from 18 clients to 81 in 10 short years. In those 10 years, bva also adopted a strong knowledge in cloud computing, storage, VDI, and Disaster Recovery. Also grew our knowledge in ethical hacking by training internal personnel and hiring individuals that had a passion for this area. Moved to Old Town Scottsdale in 2014 allowed us to grow our footprint and make it much easier to support or clients throughout the valley being so centrally located. Being such a cloud advocate, has aligned us with vendors such as Microsoft Azure and AWS which provides our clients two great options for cloud.
