Solution Design & Architecture
GIP teams have been involved in numerous complex digital media ecosystem design and architecture projects around the world. Our senior architects understand the nuances and complexities of deploying QAM, hybrid OTT (QAM/IP and OTT), IPTV and pure OTT systems. We were involved in the earliest Video On Demand deployments in the world and have helped the industry mature as systems have become more complex.
We can stand up teams virtually anywhere with the specific background necessary to craft next generation Digital Medial solutions, inclusive of transformation and migration from legacy systems to new greenfield installations.
Technical Management Consulting & Sales Support
GIP provides senior-level teams that close deals for both the Service Provider & Vendor communities as a stand-alone function or in support to augment existing teams. First looking at what outcome is expected and then through analysis of what exists compared to what is needed, we provide strategy and tactics to close business via:
Business strategy assessment & planning
Pre-Sales, Solution Architecture & Sales staffing specific to needs
RFI/RFP creation and management
RFI/RFP response and presentation
Project/Program cost modeling
Vendor Analysis and M&A Due Diligence
As part of any Merger, Acquisition or new solution, diligence on the technologies used or built by any party must be detailed with documentation and a determination made of whether to integrate or replace. GIP teams are skilled at reviewing vendor or operator-provided technologies, reviewing how they will best work together to deliver on the needs of the company following M&A, or for existing the company that is transforming their consumer or wholesale offerings.
For example, GIP utilized a team of 20 people for a large 2.5 year M&A engagement involving some of the largest cable operators in the world, ultimately creating an $80 billion dollar company. GIP led the merger diligence effort and performed complex technical analysis of all technical ecosystems required to normalize and support their voice, video, data and wholesale business service architecture.
System Integration & Program/Project Delivery
Our teams have decades of hands-on experience in deploying complex video ecosystems. We understand both smaller enhancement projects and very large enterprise-wide transformation program delivery. As seasoned experts, we are able to rapidly blend into the geography and culture of a company whether embedded on-site or remote, serving as a catalyst for deploying projects flawlessly.
We bring a unique workflow methodology for delivering complex projects using Agile for systems integration and professional PMO procedures across all business and technical functions.
