The ICEFLO Starter Pack Offering is aimed at cutover managers, deployment managers, programme and project managers who are embarking on or in the middle of an engagement that has an element of risk, complex dependencies, time constraints and who wish to adopt either a parallel approach to provide a level of comfort or prove beyond all doubt that the cutover plan is going to deliver on time without affecting service, and have the management information at their fingertips throughout.
We've partnered with Scott Logic to deliver a major re-design of its flagship ICEFLO application. The next iteration of this flagship product is built on the IBM Bluemix cloud platform, with open APIs and an extensively enhanced feature set.
I had a conversation recently with a very experienced Business leader, trying to explain in plain language what ICEFLO is and how to articulate the business benefits.
After a few minutes, he summarised the solution perfectly ....... "So, it's a bit like SatNav for technology cutovers".
This concise and insightful conclusion prompted me to write this blog, comparing ICEFLO to modern SatNav systems by looking at the essential characteristics shared by both solutions.
