Testing environments and services for accelerated decision making
Changes in technology are moving faster than ever and growing increasingly complex for today’s organizations. Acquiring the experts and platforms to evaluate the latest technologies is cost prohibitive and operationally ineffective. We believe that the only way for organizations to stay technologically relevant is to make decisions based on independent information derived from real-world data.
WWT’s approach to lab services focuses on the lifecycle of a lab engagement and organizes engagements based on the level of customization. For all levels of customization, WWT applies a lab services methodology that produces results in a manner that is controlled, organized, focused, transparent and innovative.
OFFERING THREE LEVELS OF CUSTOMIZATION
In order to make lab services engagements seamless and consistent, WWT focuses on three levels of customization.
On-demand: On-demand environments provide exposure and learning opportunities to customer engineering teams. We have more than 600 product or integrated solution demonstrations and can quickly spin up sandbox environments for training exercises.
Proof of concept: Proof-of-concept environments enable customers to evaluate the introduction of new technology, existing investments and upgrades to determine if it will positively affect their organization and achieve desired business objectives. Proofs of concept use infrastructure from the Advanced Technology Center’s (ATC) pre-built environments as well as hardware and software from strategic partners and OEMs.
Lab as a service: WWT’s lab as a service (LaaS) offers dedicated lab resources within the ATC built to suit customer performance, security and access requirements. LaaS facilitates rapid prototyping and provisioning of multi-OEM topologies for evaluation, testing and proofs of concept.
LAB SERVICES USE CASES
Core infrastructure, best-in-class testing tools, lab automation and orchestration, application integration and software development make up the ATC, which allows us to execute sophisticated test plans and multi-vendor evaluations. Customers use this collaborative ecosystem to conduct product comparisons, benchmarking, design validation and more.
