Technology Transition and Cut-over Strategy



In addition to system programming, design, and installation management of technology systems throughout the multi-phase $2.15 Billion renovation of the 17-acre United Nations Headquarters Campus in New York City, Vantage was also employed to provide transition and cut-over strategies and plans for the multiple phases of construction and system replacement.

Throughout this process Vantage worked in collaborative sessions with the project managers, the United Nation’s technical groups, the multiple architectural/engineering design teams and the specialist contractors and integrators to identify issues, seek resolution, and build consensus.

Vantage identified functions and services required to operate without interruption, established dependencies and constraints, and sequenced operations to establish the critical path and eliminate risk of outages.

Throughout the duration of the projects, Vantage reviewed and updated strategies as project milestones were completed or revised and provided executive oversight and technical administration of the implementation throughout a demanding project timeline spanning over 7 years without any disruption.
