St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Appicent Consulting Group, LLC announced the formation of a professional services firm focused on providing clients lifecycle decision support and overarching procurement strategies for information technology products and services. Utilizing proven methodologies to validate requirements and determine forward-looking technology needs, Appicent provides expertise in the evaluation of providers for wireline & wireless network services, unified communications, cloud computing, security, and managed services.
The firm is structured on a performance based business model that is executed by providing agnostic, objective consulting advice on technology providers and the products and services they represent. The firm does not market, represent, or sell network services and or information technology products.
“Today’s technology landscape is rapidly changing and growing more complex by the day, “says Douglas King, President of Appicent Consulting Group. “Companies are encountering more choice in the provider ecosystem, as well as being tasked with evaluation, alignment, and correlation of capabilities in direct support of their corporate objectives. Business case development and cost-out strategies are critical items that must be addressed when considering continued or future investment in technology.”
To assist clients in obtaining market-based pricing for these services, Appicent maintains a proprietary, market-sensing data warehouse consisting of rate elements as well as contractual terms and conditions for providers of information technology. Utilizing a closed-loop analytical process, Appicent applies numerous metadata to each service element in order to provide insight and predictive modeling capabilities of a client’s services versus those readily available in today's marketplace. This benchmark intelligence provides increased insight and leverage when negotiating new and follow-on agreements for these services.
