Situation

Staples acquired Corporate Express in fall of 2008 and began the integration of offices and assets in Spring/Summer of 2009. In addition to this merger, Staples had a number of ongoing IT and SDLC related projects as they expanded their I.T. footprint globally and evolved their I.T. processes and standards.

This integration project was dubbed the “Lighthouse” project. Based upon Intellitech's Project Management and Network Documentation skills with a previous Citrix Metaframe deployment Liberty Mutual's I.T. Management expanded our duties to take on the creation of a single consolidated project plan for the Integration of all One Beacon remote offices within the Liberty Mutual Regional Area Markets (LRAM) network.

genzyme

Situation

Philips Lifeline acquired Raytel Cardiac Services out of Windsor, CT in late 2008 and the newly acquired organization became the Philips Remote Cardiac Services Division (PRCS). One of the key 2009 projects during this M&A was the development of a detailed implementation plan for Disaster Recovery of the newly created PRCS environment. Philips needed a Technical Project Manager with Disaster Recovery Planning and Data Center Architecture skills to execute this project.

Solution

Intellitech entered the scene and performed a detailed assessment of the 6 primary service lines that made up the PRCS division. Intellitech then assembled a Business Impact Assessment (BIA) portfolio for each service line that determined the current human resource requirements to support each service line and the financial/business impact and risks to the organization as a whole should there be a failure in some or all of the IT infrastructure that supported each service line. Finally, Intellitech presented their findings to I.T. executives and then developed/documented alternative Disaster Recovery Strategies (including technologies, costs and resource requirements) for each service line.



genzyme

Situation

Genzyme Corporation, one of the leading pharmaceutical firms in the world with over 50 global office locations was going through a period of transition in their I.T. department. The current Network Manager was taking another job and they needed an senior Network Architect to jump right in and take of the duties of the outgoing manager, document the current network architecture as well as processes and procedures for support of the environment in order to make it easy to transition all of this information to the incoming manager once they were hired. The position called for maintenance of all duties of the outgoing manager until a full time replacement could be found

Solution

Genzyme called on Intellitech to help during this crisis moment and Mr. Dale Dowdie handily filled the role of Network Manager until a more permanent replacement was found.
