Communications Design & Management (CDM): Precision Network Orchestration
A solid ICT infrastructure is the cornerstone of a modern-day enterprise. It must be pervasive, flexible, robust and with increasing importance, secure, to the point that it becomes the backbone of the organization, acting as both the nervous system and support for its every operation. The company network thus becomes so critically important that the technologies and those that implement and support those systems need to deliver every facet of the network so that it exceeds expectations. A leader in this regard is Communications Design & Management (CDM), drawing on an impressive history of successfully delivering over $1.8 billion in successful projects, on time and within budget.
CDM’s expertise in enterprise network solutions comes from both their experience and their ability to understand customer requirements. from the moment CDM engages with the customer, the goal is to clearly identify the business requirements in detail and to define the desired outcome. CDM then works closely with the customer, leveraging a vast array of in-house qualifications and strong relationships with tier 1 vendors to determine what products and solutions would be the most appropriate to achieve an optimum solution in the most cost-effective manner.
Their consultative approach is one that works in a logical manner, where the process is to define what the end result needs to be then working backwards and designing an optimal solution that brings together all the necessary components. CDM then draws on years of experience delivering complex ICT projects and adhering to strict project management methodologies to ensure that the rollout is as efficient as possible, minimizing the impact on the organization.
Underpinning all CDM deployments is a deep understanding of how to project manage complex deployments and the importance of attention to detail, especially in the scoping and planning phase
Whether on-premise, in the cloud, or a hybrid solution, CDM has the skills to deliver with accuracy. CDM has experience in Network Infrastructure, Store and Compute, Cyber-Security, Telephony, Connectivity and Network Optimization. CDM offers Managed Service capabilities that can support any deployment from single devices to the entire infrastructure. “Underpinning all of our deployments is a deep understanding of how to project manage complex deployments and the importance of attention to detail, especially in the scoping and planning phase,” adds Jeff Bogensberger, General Manager–Southern Region at CDM.
One of CDM’s core advantages is their partnership with best in class vendors. This gives instant access to a deep knowledge base to support CDM’s own capabilities. These long-standing relationships also offer the end customer preferred pricing and support. The breadth of vendor relationships and an agnostic approach allows CDM to deliver the best solution that works for their clients. No matter what the requirement, CDM can bring in internal staff, vendors, and subcontractors if required, to manage even the most complex of deployments with project management expertise.
The key differentiator that CDM offers is their ability to deliver on time, on the budget, and with accuracy across multiple technologies and vendors. Finally honed project management skills support a highly skilled team of engineers across multiple technologies and the latest emerging trends. CDM has an emphasis on making sure technical resources remain current and at the forefront of technology, investing heavily in staff training to stay ahead of the competitive curve.
CDM has recently deployed networking projects with all levels of Government, Australian Defense Force, Enterprise, Healthcare, Education, Not for Profit and SMB organizations. CDM has developed its own Internet of Things (NOMAD IoT) applications that gives customers complex computing capabilities on the edge far beyond what was previously available in the marketplace.
For the immediate future, CDM continues to grow, honing their capabilities to recruit best-in-class people, continue to partner with best-in-class technologies to support the growth of their customers’ ever-growing requirements. The company is also working hard on developing NOMAD IoT which is becoming a leader in the IoT and edge-computing space.
