  8. 8. © d-Wise 2013 December 7, 2016 Page 8 Assess Design Implement Migrate Adopt Run Manage, Execute, and Enable Change Support - Center of Excellence  Proven methodology and approach  Implementation is not a serial activity  Implementation is not adoption  Change management is a vital component  On-going alignment of performance to business demands d-Wise has deep technical expertise in SAS and solutions architecture, but more importantly we enable successful adoption
  9. 9. © d-Wise 2013 December 7, 2016 Page 9 Aligning the organization on a SAS licensing and deployment strategy requires a coordinated effort Design should accommodate today’s operational needs and tomorrow’s agility needs Execution and change management should minimize business disruption and enable enterprise adoption Business objectives should align to best practices The risk profile of modernization should inform planning and execution

  11. 11. © d-Wise 2013 December 7, 2016 Page 11 Plan accordingly that implementation and adoption are separate efforts. Risk in a grid implementation is highest during design and migration. All work streams should have shared purpose and understanding of current state and future state. Grid is configurable and flexible, decisions that prioritize simplicity reduce risk in implementation and operation. Migration cannot start too early, but it can start too late. Start early.
  12. 12. © d-Wise 2013 December 7, 2016 Page 12 Adoption timing is a 3 dimensional problem: technology, people, and projects (or studies). Migration dependency analysis must include code/data review. Prioritize an early effort to identify known and unknown technical challenges and mitigation strategies. Pilot exercises are a potent way to surface unknowns and creates internal advocacy and peer-to-peer support capabilities. Project lifecycle (proximity to completion, ability to limit future work in legacy platforms) are strong determinants of adoption timing. Adoption approach should provide flexibility in the transition and steer around avoidable risk to business operations/timelines.

Grid Server Desktop Deploys to Any # of cores A specific server or collection of specific servers A # of desktops Agility Move cores fluidly across enterprise; allocate capacity on demand; provision resource queues Move users between servers Not agile High-Availability Built-in from ground up Accomplished via redundancy and/or virtualization Having spare laptops and/or lab licenses Scalability Easy to scale up or out; pricing/terms for additional cores pre-negotiated Add another server, renegotiate license Buy another bundle of PC licenses
