The Architecture On-Demand Partnership helped Plunket to manage a cost-effective, high-quality collaborative engagement.
“It enabled us to maintain an on-site presence with on-going institutional knowledge of Plunket,” says Craig. “It aided continuity and access to Plunket’s business domain knowledge without having full-time engagement, and helped mitigate protracted induction cycles because the team was already familiar with our infrastructure.”
The Architecture On-Demand Partnership is provided by Equinox IT. “The partnership with Plunket means we are able to maintain a presence at their architecture and management team meetings,” says George Aranyi, Equinox IT’s Architecture Practice Director. “The service continuum is immensely valuable. Plunket is not being served by one individual. More than 140 years’ of Equinox IT experience is available on tap from several consultants with high-capability levels relevant to Plunket’s needs at any given time.”
“Our partnering enabled our consultants to ally with Plunket and identify with their culture, whilst being an independent voice ensuring that the quality and delivery focus was aligned with their organisational direction. It worked very well.”
"Plunket’s institutional knowledge was shared and disseminated by Equinox IT who helped further expand knowledge throughout our organisation. In my experience this was superior to a short-term relationship with external contractors and vendors who generally have minimal familiarity with the holistic nature of architectures."
