Upon completing a pre-engagement consultation and confirming a start date, your assigned Agilisium consultant and delivery lead will perform five phases of activity



The network architecture is reviewed to determine the preferred data collection methodology. The appropriate key applications are identified for predictive focus. Then the service level agreements to be measured against are defined.



The optimal product deployment for capturing data are identified. The capture agent locations for key predictive data collection, as appropriate are also identified.



Data collection products are deployed and configured. Then the data collection is verified.



The performance data two to four weeks are collected. Then the baseline performance reports, dependency maps and risk reports are generated. The appropriate key transactional data are collected. An optional step is to perform appropriate predictive analysis for key transactions and generate deliverable reports.



The remediation tasks for applications deemed high risk or migration are identified and suggested.
