Our mission in working with RagingWire is based on the pillars of credibility, capability and providing best-in-class data centres. Our strategic objectives are focused around delivering capacity, improving speed-to-market and reducing cost. RagingWire has recently moved its delivery method to an outsourced model, managed by a general contractor. Linesight is currently operating as a project-based resource for the first of RagingWire’s outsourced projects in Virginia, Santa Clara (CA) and Texas, working closely with the general contractor and the core RagingWire stakeholders, to provide leadership and oversight of budgets, risk and subcontractor buyout.
Since our commencement with RagingWire, we have helped to improve the client’s in-house budget tracking and reporting. Through collaborative work with the client team, we have developed more robust cost reporting mechanisms, which allow for dedicated project reviews based on the latest financial information. This information enables senior management to make key decisions in relation to project performance. Through our work on subcontractor buyout and change management responsibilities, we have helped to drive value, as we work towards the client’s end goal of delivering a facility ready for client move-in by the outlined milestone date.
Linesight provides more of a business analysis role - they are very good at turning data into information and putting their detailed analysis into a management-readable format, which simplifies comprehension of complex messages and facilitates timely strategic decision-making at the highest level. Cost of Service (COS) ratio has been key for RagingWire – Linesight continues to demonstrate the ROI of using their service for across-the-board project support.
