Planning & Deployment Methodology



The Planning and Deployment Methodology of SEW Consulting Group evolved from the delivery of the following Enterprise systems:

  • 64

    Digital Asset Management Systems

  • 34

    Customer Experience / Web Content Management Systems

  • 12

    Digital Content and Creative Production Workflow Systems

Strategic Value

To date, these deployed systems have produced over $1B in client returns

Combined cost savings / avoidances, increased revenues, and incremental profit from shorter time-to-market cycles and synchronized global launches of new campaigns, products, and businesses.


As a science and engineering company, we immediately understood the well-formedness of the SEW planning and implementation methodology. It just made sense.

Their modular, phased approache worked especially well.

It let us move at an organic pace around the quarterly realities of resource availability and funding.

Looking back, we’re amazed with how much we got done without even minor disruptions or political flare-ups.

Phased, Modular Framework

SEW Consulting Group customizes its Planning & Deployment Methodology to the contingent needs and goals of each client.

Each module within a phase stands alone as a deliverable from a Statement of Work (SOW) against a Master Services Agreement (MSA).

This flexible approach can accommodate the ever-changing, unforeseen developments within a large organization.

Clients can speed up, slow down, or pause work without putting the project into jeopardy.

Technical Reference Model

The Planning and Deployment Methodology of SEW Consulting Group includes a number of practical models and frameworks.

This includes an Ingest-Management-Distribute (IMD) model that depict the discrete services of a “full stack” business capability.

We use the Ingest Manage Distribute model to assess:

  • Current capabilities

    Existing technologies and services of your current business-enablement infrastructure

  • Interdependencies

    Prerequisite technologies and services

  • Business requirements

    Technologies and services needed to achieve specific business goals

  • Redundancies

    Redundant workflow activities, overlapping technologies and service vendors to cut, consolidate, or recertify to a new service level agreement

  • Vendor short listings

    Recertification of vendors and service level agreements

  • Funding alignment

    Investments and prospective returns for adding a new a technology or consolidating services

  • Investment timing

    When to buy or upgrade a new technology, or retire or replace an existing service
