AOI 360 Engagement Process

Assess - Optimize - Implement

At Open Spectrum, we follow a proven engagement process that we call AOI 360. The relationship we establish with our agents and clients follows this lifecycle to meet your immediate business need and long-term strategic goals. As a strategic overlay, Open Spectrum will:


  • Provide full visibility into your existing IT budget and how it can be optimized using both current and new technologies and platforms
  • Build a roadmap of potential initiatives to provide quick impact on IT budget, shore up infrastructure resiliency, and mitigate business risk with focus on empowering the business through modern IT practices
  • Initiate renegotiations with current vendors and source new vendors if needed, utilizing data center marketplace knowledge and experience
  • Assist with internal organizational approach to get project approvals and move initiatives forward

How the process works


The first step is for us to assess your current situation and future needs. This involves a detailed technical and business assessment that allows us to map your existing applications, services, contracts, providers, teams and related infrastructure to your primary business goals and drivers. This assessment will cover details of all mission critical IT and facilities.  Services could include the following:



SDWAN and Network Optimization

Disaster Recovery

Managed Hosting

Data Center and Colocation


Physical Hardware Assets


Once the assessment is completed and we have developed a total cost of ownership model, we can provide detailed data based recommendations that outline how to best optimize the environment and/or modernize it while supporting both the strategic business goals and operational initiatives. Depending on what is uncovered during the first stage, these recommendations may include:

Physical Migration

RFP Management

Location Migration

Virtual Migration

Equipment Financing

Contract Negotiations

Vendor Selection


The final phase of our process comes only after we have reviewed our recommendations with you and we come to a clear understanding around how you would best like to proceed, given the data presented. This phase will include:

Tactical Assignments and Responsibilities

Written Statement of Work

Outline for Ongoing Project Management
