SASE Readiness Accelerator Approach

The delivery of the Xalient Accelerator services follows a structured approach to ensure the required customer outcomes, while keeping the impact on the environment to a minimum. This incorporates an initial scoping workshop to fully qualify the requirements and business deliverables. The accelerator comprises four key stages:

INITIAL SCOPING WORKSHOP

During this crucial phase, we engage in detailed discussions to comprehend the business drivers and objectives. The aim is to reach a consensus on the overarching objectives that will guide the upcoming stages of the project.​

ANALYSIS OF THE CURRENT ENVIRONMENT

Conducting an in-depth evaluation of the existing network infrastructure involves scrutinizing the network design, security topology, and policies. Additionally, we assess utilization and costs, information that is either provided by the customer or acquired through our WAN performance assessment services, as detailed in the related services section below.

DEFINITION OF INTENDED FUTURE–STATE

This step involves outlining the desired future state. We encapsulate both business and technical perspectives, considering business requirements and constraints, as well as technical specifications and constraints. Furthermore, we ensure the incorporation of future growth plans to future-proof the solution.

ACCELERATOR REPORT

Subsequent to the discovery and analysis phases, you will receive a comprehensive Accelerator Report. This document encapsulates technical recommendations rooted in the initial business objectives and scoping workshop. Key outputs of this report include:
Documented gap analysis, Vendors to consider, and Roadmap.
