What value can Red Oak bring to you?

Our team of leading independent HPC and Cloud specialists will work with your business to ensure all your HPC and Cloud business objectives are met.  We guarantee results and stand by our proven track record of success. Experience has taught us that there are four critical questions in the HPC and Cloud markets that all businesses need to ask and we work tirelessly to ensure you get the answers.

Why are we doing this?

Forming a balanced view of project success and impact is absolutely crucial. At Red Oak, we specialise in working with our customers to understand and quantify the value of activities. Your specialist HPC and Cloud consultant will draw from Red Oak’s wealth of experience, to build two robust cost models: one centred around inclusive cost, and the other focused on benefit and risk models. By collating and forming these two costs models, senior management will be able to make decisions in an “eyes open” fashion.

How and why do projects fail?

Our experience has taught us that by actively and critically observing our activities and those of the wider teams, we can use clear metrics to determine the likely success, or otherwise, of a project. Some of these are in the “make sure you do this before you start any project” category that will be familiar to anyone that has spent any amount of time in delivery. Others are more domain and technology focused, based on hard-earned lessons learnt.

What are the right interventions and when should they be applied?

A rule of thumb is that it is generally 1,000 times cheaper to apply an intervention at the front of a project than to try to fix the issue at the end of the life cycle. In some cases, however, it can be 10,000 or even 100,000 times more expensive. The Red Oak methodology is based upon merging our body of critical success factors with a critical assessment of the project deliverability and risk assessments to provide clear actionable points.
