Use your network to maximize business impact!

Using NetYCE for Design Driven Networking can make a major contribution to the business.
TCO Reduction

NetYCE has proven that companies can save between 25% and 50% of their overall OPEX cost by doing more with less (expensive) people and by offering new (automated) services to customers in less time. Also CAPEX savings can be realised by adopting a multi vendor strategy.

Quality

Availability and stability are the most crucial aspects of a network. Businesses depend on it. NetYCE can guarantee first time right deployments by following the methodology and processes as defined by Design Driven Networking.

Time to market

With Design Driven Networking the networks are designed to work. Rolling out new services, doing migrations or consolidations is just a matter of testing in the lab and deploying it on your network. Significant time saving can be realised, generating revenues earlier with less cost and happier customers.

Vendor agnostic

Being able to adopt a multi vendor strategy and switching from one vendor to another is a powerful asset for decision makers and purchasers while negotiating with vendors and integrators. It also reduces the risks of a single vendor strategy.

Innovation

Innovation is possible in several ways. Customers and partners can get their own portal for things that they are allowed to do themselves. Taking things further, outsourcing of functions, like 1st and 2nd line support, is now possible while keeping full control. Third, multiple managed services can be offered via one platform due to its multi tenancy capabilities. And of course new services can be implemented quicker and easier.

Compliancy

Compliancy is realized in several ways. First, all configurations are generated as designed, thereby providing the baseline for the desired situation. Second, netYCE validates compliance with production versions and differences over time. And third, netYCE ensures that desired processes or standards like ISO9000 & ITIL are followed.

Business quantification

In co-operation with existing customers and external consultants, NetYCE has developed a methodology to quantify operational savings when adopting Design Driven Networking. These can be quantified for the following categories:

Time savings

  • De-operationalise engineering cost: Freeing up time from engineers by providing a single view of the network and designing things once so they can be operated by less expensive operations people.
  • Reducing operations cost: Doing more work with less network operations staff for daily operations, troubleshooting and analysis.

Cost avoidance

  • Avoid future headcount growth: By adopting Design Driven Networking, less or even no additional headcount is needed to support additional work.
  • Reduction of network downtime: Network downtime is significantly reduced as networks become more stable with guaranteed first time right deployments.
  • Less incidents: The number of incidents due to configuration errors is minimized by adopting Design Driven Networking. And less time is spent on troubleshooting as incidents will only occur due to hardware failure, power outages or software bugs.
  • First Time fault and service impact reduction: For service providers, faults and service impacts when deploying or upgrading new services is accounted. These can also be quantified.
  • Decrease third party maintenance cost: Design Driven Networking provides a framework into existing tools and systems used for engineering and operations. Existing tools can be optimized or replaced.

Increased revenue

Increased revenue can be derived is several ways by using Design Driven Networking. Some of them are:

  • Extra revenue due to quicker time to market: Reducing time to market to deploy new services leads to earlier accrued revenue. This can be easily quantified for per type of service based on the number of days saved on a monthly or yearly basis..
  • Customers retention due to quicker and better time to market: For service providers, customer retention is highly correlated to first time right deployments. With good customer experience existing customers will stay after the contract period.

ROI

For the total business case, the cost for implementing DDN should be accounted for. This can vary from customer to customer, depending on how DDN is implemented, for what types of services, the scale of the network and the state of the current network. From experience, the ROI is typically between 9-12 months with total quantified saving up to 300%-500% in 3 years. NetYCE and its partners can help define this and provide a cost estimation.
