We have done it many many
times – and always with complete success
We manage the project so that the biggest impact
on the staff is the need to commute to a
We have the right people to staff your project
- The organization -- and especially the IT
organization-- is not staffed to support this
major activity in addition to their day-to-day
responsibilities. NewVista will provide
the specific skills you need, from providing the
IT Project Manager that has overall
responsibility to functional PMs where needed,
to server and desktop relocation supplemental
We consider that technology has been moved
successfully when nobody knows it was ever moved
We understand the process of building a new
facility, equipping it with technology and
migrating to the new location, and we understand
it better than anyone else in the field
– We understand the issues, the landmines, the
risks, and how to mitigate all of the above.

Our set of tools includes comprehensive
templates for Project Plans, Timelines and
– We can create the project package quickly and
with more detail than almost anyone else.
That’s because we know to include costs related
to IT incidentals, Construction, Building Fees,
Transportation, Move-Weekend Expenses and a slew
of specialty services that most people miss –
until they come back to ask for a variance.
Technology Relocation Engagements
We don’t just align the project plan with the
broader business activities; we fuse the two
– We manage the Business, Construction and IT
vendor dependencies to ensure minimal impact
both to the business and the project. We
also set up a comprehensive communications
program, both within IT and to the business
itself, to ensure that the business does not
create schedule conflict once the IT plan is in
We are the glue!
– One of the greatest benefits we bring to the
project is our ability to clearly interface and
communicate with all of the contributing team
members. This includes not only the IT and
Real Estate teams, but also the Telecom vendors,
the Architects, Construction Managers,
Electrical/Mechanical Engineers, Electricians
(Local 3, etc), Movers (Teamsters) and other
trades and Unions, A/V consultants, Building
Management and so on.
We have a focus on the availability of your
systems and applications, and we ensure the new
facility design meets or exceeds your
expectations and needs
– The IT staff often does not understand the
intricacies of power and cooling systems or
delivering high availability communications
circuits. We will ensure your new
facility has the redundancies and diversities
needed to meet your cost and availability goals.
We tightly manage the cost of your IT
relocation, often saving more than the total
cost of our services!
– Even when all goes as planned; the difference
between two different choices in a single
decision can amount to a huge amount of money.
We understand the contributors to the IT
relocation cost, where we can control it, and
the associated risks.
We are completely technology agnostic
– we are neither aligned with any vendor, nor do
we sell any product. We therefore make our
decisions without any influence of personal
gain. That is not true with many others in
this field, where design and architecture
decisions are based on what they can sell you.
