Getting to know you...
The first step towards establishing your ideal Tiviti CaaS implementation is for us to understand how your network operates at present, what your business needs are, and how your outsourced network infrastructure can support this.
That’s why our process begins with an introduction to your dedicated project manager, who will discuss your requirements, validate orders, plan out the project and line up all necessary resources with third parties.
Detailed planning for refreshing with confidence
It’s our job to work through all the information you give us and set up a detailed plan that allows the onboarding and transition phases to run as smoothly as possible.
This includes logical and physical audits, conducted by our network partners, that will allow us to determine the most effective and disruption-free way forwards. Your Project Manager will also work with our connectivity partner to ensure that all the required deliverables arrive or are made available at the right times.
Setting you up for success
Once the due diligence phase has been completed, our team will start running through all the key steps needed to activate your CaaS service, as per the plan previously agreed. What that involves will vary depending on your adoption path, but it will typically include:
- Transfer of current vendor management
- Building your CMDB, containing critical SNMP data
- Knowledge transfer
- Completion of planned upgrades and network refresh
- Set-up of your Tiviti IQ web-based management dashboard
- Implementation of the governance and support plan
Your new ‘business as usual’ starts here
With the new infrastructure ready to go, it’s time to start migrating your users onto the new CaaS platform and get your business fully up and running. The ultimate goal is to have all correct access permissions provisions for every user, and the reporting functions within Tiviti IQ to be fully operational.
But in the event of any issues, we won’t just leave you to fend for yourself. As part of our commitment to ongoing service, the Tiviti team will always be happy to help as and when any unexpected problems materialise.

Future-proof your network infrastructure
The CaaS subscription model eliminates the need for a customer to buy, own, manage and depreciate any hardware. It also reduces the burden on its own internal IT team to manage it, meaning as your business changes, your network changes in line with it.
Scale your network in line with demand
The huge amount of turmoil caused by the pandemic, along with the subsequent short and medium-term uncertainty, has deterred most organisations from making expensive, fixed-cost contractual commitments.
Under the CaaS model, subscription costs are fixed per user, per month, meaning your network scales as your business does.
Simple predictable model
Most networks comprise bundled-together products and services with hundreds of credible vendors and suppliers that offer hardware, firmware, software, services and connectivity options.
Tiviti removes this complexity, along with the significant and on-going cost of looking after it once it’s all been purchased, installed and integrated.
