Enterprise Integration Services LLC
Implementation Planning Overview

Enterprise Integration Services LLC (EIS) is a highly experienced services group that has expertise in implementing Auto-trol Technology’s KONFIG product. We help implement KONFIG from the beginning all the way to a fully integrated enterprise configuration and data management solution that is globally and securely accessible by thousands of users. EIS has experience in hardware selection, installation, migration, requirements development, design, process development, process improvement, deployment and verification of solutions in many industries including but not limited to Department of Defense, Department of Energy, aerospace, manufacturing, and petrochemical. Our team combines the best practices from configuration management, project management, and our implementation experience to deploy many kinds of solutions with KONFIG in a globally distributed environment.


This document describes the EIS implementation plan and captures the basic order of activities required to stand up and tailor the KONFIG product. This plan is tailored for each customer based on unique and localized requirements. Additional detail will be added as the customer and EIS collaborate as a team to implement KONFIG based on program and project requirements.


Implementation steps include:


  1. Implementation kickoff
  2. Hardware selection
  3. Installation of KONFIG
  4. Training
  5. Project identification and prioritization
  6. For each project:
    1. Identify project scope and deliverables
    2. Planning
    3. Implementation
    4. Verification
    5. Deployment
    6. End user training


These steps may overlap or be re-ordered based on needs and requirements but all will be included in the implementation plan. EIS can assist with the implementation using our Professional Services group. It is EIS’s experience that the best practice approach to an implementation is to start with a small subset of the overall requirements to form an initial project. This initial project can provide a deployable solution set of a part of the overall system. Using a small project as the first iteration of implementation will minimize the impact of the technology, functional, process, and product learning curve and show rapid progress and value through a quick deployment of part of the ultimate system. The second, third, and continued projects (or iterations) will become faster to implement due to the experiences gained in this incremental approach reducing the overall time and risks associated to implement the complete deployed system.
