The next step is to identify the most lucrative business cases. Site location is only one of the many factors that drives a value-based rollout strategy. It has, however, a significant impact on the prioritization of certain high-cost COs.
There are several central questions that determine the prioritization of some COs over others. To factor these into the strategy, we found the pain points that might limit the speed of the rollout to be the organization’s tolerance level for changes, migration and customer management as well as regulatory impacts such as policies and subsidies.
To work around the unpredictability, we build a simulation model that combines the inputs and allows CSPs to identify the impact of the anticipated and potential adaptions.
This model helps to identify three to five distinct scenarios (e.g. conservative or accelerated), allowing CSP to foresee the impact of the anticipated changes, and providing a tested foundation to define a strategy.
