A sophisticated and mature corporation has just formally opened
the new Technical Center, and yet no one can do any work. Why? All
network cabling is a full three feet short of the workstations. How
can something so basic be allowed to occur?
During any construction project, every component demands and deserves
equal attention. If one area or department receives disproportionate
attention, invariably, a different area or department will suffer.
Any IT department (regardless of size) or CIO has specific and crucial
needs that must be addressed during the design and planning stages
of any technology construction project. Technology requires the same
attention to detail as the building services, architecture and furniture
The most common mistake is to address all areas of construction without
taking into account the physical demands and constraints imposed by
technical requirements. These requirements typically necessitate concessions
and redesigns for other elements. Shoehorning technology into an architectural
plan simply doesn't work, resulting in costly extras and delays.
Additionally, JALCO has no territory to defend or agenda it must
advance. JALCO is looking out for the good of the client in totality.
JALCO does not approach a project on a departmental basis. Typically,
all members of the process compete, resulting in a disjointed situation.
JALCO integrates the entire process and clearly defines and addresses
the needs of all involved and concerned.
JALCO has participated in every aspect and angle of this equation.
Possessing a strong IT background, JALCO knows what may be missing
early on and how to avoid unpleasant surprises upon launch or roll
JALCO understands that knowing what to do is as equally important
as knowing when to do it. In terms of technology design and construction
management JALCO establishes a process of inclusion ensuring that
the process of construction is correct and as seamless as possible.
JALCO understands that the overall design and execution must be efficient,
easy to use and possess a clearly defined purpose.
Simply put, JALCO ensures that all your cables are exactly where
they are supposed to be.
