Projects On Demand (PODs)

Outcome-based tactical services for infrastructure, network projects and more.

Your Projects, Completed.

3SG Plus sources elite knowledge talent to initiate, manage and deliver your IT projects - on time, on budget, guaranteed.



3SG Plus has taken the as-a-service model and applied it to IT project talent--Business Analysts, Consultants, Developers, Network Architects and more, across the country or around the world, at the top of their respective fields.

We configure these resources on an as-needed basis so that your costs are managed on an as-a-service basis - you are billed only for the resources you use, while you're using them, rather than paying peak hourly rates for roles that may be inactive for significant portions of any given IT project.

The net-net is that you have access to the brightest minds in the industry, at off-peak-hour rates. And when their part of the overall work is complete, they move off of your project - and your invoice. The entire project is conducted through our project manager who interfaces with your in-house staff to ensure everything is transparent, on-schedule, on-budget, and adaptive to your unique situation. 



What Can You Do With PODs?

It would take less space to explain what you can't do! Virtually any IT Project that you have, or need, can be handled by one or more 3SG Plus PODs if it has these characteristics:

  • The project has an end date. It may be a date in the distant future, but this isn't an open-ended initiative or a perpetual activity (but don't worry, we can help with those too - check out our Technology Resource Augmentation for ongoing technical help.
  • The project has a budget, and/or a timeframe. You may not have a specific budget or timeframe in mind yet - but you have a sense of how much is reasonable to spend and how much time this will take if you performed it entirely with in-house resources.
  • The project is not your core line of business. The value of a POD is to quickly complete bottom-line-level projects so your in-house staff can focus on increasing the top line. A 3SG Plus POD might be a good solution for a prototype, however, if you don't want to invest in upfront resources to test out a concept.
  • The project can benefit from highly skilled experts. Networking, server, storage, business app development, upgrade readiness assessments, and a variety of other projects have multiple layers that a skilled PODs team can complete more effectively than a small group of in-house resources. 

Common Use Cases for PODs

Each Project-on-Demand is unique, but here are some that we have seen many times - even if you'll do them only once.

  • Network Projects

    Network architecture, layouts, cabling, WiFi, switches, routers - as well as Cisco and Citrix software platforms; Network upgrades and readiness assesments can be a frustrating time sink for internal teams but are perfect for PODs.

  • Datacenter Infrastructure

    Servers, storage, cages, power cabling, and everything in between. Adds, moves, changes, decommissioning, hardware and platform migrations. Or you can spin up a 3SG Plus project team to virtualize the hardware with a Software Defined Datacenter (SDDC).

  • Cloud Migration

    Integrate a little or a lot of cloud-based resources into your IT service delivery. Whether it's a migration, setting up hybrid services combining in-house and cloud systems, or even a repatriation from the cloud back to on-premise hardware, a 3SG Plus POD can bridge gaps in skills or fulfill your entire project.

  • Readiness Assessments

    Sometimes the most important project is the one that comes before the next big thing. We bring you the expertise of multiple consultants to determine readiness and go-forward plans for upgrades, hardware and software migrations, systems merges from business acquisitions and more.

  • Internal Business Apps

    Many businesses need unique systems to run their business when off-the-shelf options are insufficient. We can build custom content management, system monitoring, inventory management, process tracking apps and much more to do exactly the things you need them to.

  • Overdue Projects

    PODs don't have to be brand new initiatives; one of the best uses of PODs is to get an overdue initiative back on track or to apply expert resources to get new products to market faster than you could on your own.

PODs can be completely unique, too.

The great thing about a Project-on-Demand is that you're not on the hook for costly roles and runaway billable hours - PODs are outcome-based. That means that the budget and the timeframe are part of the SOW and there will be no surprises. It also means that if conditions change while the project is underway, you have an avenue for turning the dials to reduce costs or delivery timeframes.

There are literally thousands of Projects on Demand that can benefit your organization. The best way to find out how valuable they can be to you is to connect with us for a no-pressure discussion of any current or future IT projects that may be better accomplished using 3SG Plus PODs.
