Slide 1: IT Hosting: A Fundamental Business Process By Chuck Vermillion CEO & Founder
Slide 2: Information Technology As technology has evolved and become increasingly pervasive, there isn’t a business function that isn’t in some way enabled by technology. The point at which business finds itself today is one of “Information Technology is the business,” and vice versa. IT cannot be viewed any differently than the fundamental business processes on which the organization operates. This presentation will provide tips for creating a trust-based relationship with your IT hosting company by specifically focusing on selecting the right IT hosting vendor.
Slide 3: Selecting an IT Hosting Vendor Be informed on both sides. The process of governance needs to start at the selection phase. When selecting an IT hosting vendor be sure to include criteria specifically targeted at governance. Also, work hard to understand your vendor’s business model. If the IT hosting vendor cannot convey how their business makes money, how could they possibly build a long-term, winning scenario for you? And if you believe your prospective outsourcing partner doesn’t understand your business, then keep looking.
Slide 4: Selecting an IT Hosting Vendor Check your IT hosting vendor’s references. Not the ones they want to give you but the ones they don’t want to give you — tell potential IT hosting vendors you’d like to speak with ex-customers. Review the potential vendor’s recent press releases and look at the different stages of their customer relationships: transitioning, steady state or contract term expiration. Instead of asking for three references, ask for the complete customer list and select customers that you believe most closely match your profile.
Slide 5: Selecting an IT Hosting Vendor Look in the mirror — objectively. Consider how your IT department is viewed internally. Is it a department of business-savvy IT professionals who are aligned to the primary objectives of your organization? If it’s not, is that what you’re looking to find in an outsourcing partner? Do parts of your team function more effectively than others? Understanding what you have is the lion’s share of defining what you need.
Slide 6: Selecting an IT Hosting Vendor It’s also important to fully understand what your customer — the end user — wants from IT. Is IT viewed positively and as being successful in your company? Is IT a strategic enabler or a necessary evil? The answers to these questions are essential clues to finding the best outsourcing vendor for your needs, and not simply taking the recommendation of one company.
Slide 7: Selecting an IT Hosting Vendor Turn back to plan ahead. When considering how best to manage your IT hosting services vendor, you should revisit why you decided to, or why you are considering outsourcing in the first place. This primary motivation should then be able to be tracked through all aspects of governance. Is your primary motivation strategic transformation? Or is it improved quality of service, cost containment, or a combination of the above? With these factors in mind, does your planned or current governance strategy support those objectives?
Slide 8: Selecting an IT Hosting Vendor If your primary motivation is strategic transformation, how are you going to measure the success of that transformation? When are you going to measure it? And what happens if your goals aren’t reached? These are all factors that play a role in creating a successful, long-term outsourcing relationship with realistic expectations and well-defined metrics in place.
