Path to a Successful Deployment

leave a comment »


As mentioned in the course introduction, a G Suite deployment for larger organizations is typically managed over three phases. Let’s take a look at these phases and optimum timelines. It is said that there are typically three ‘Go-Lives’ in a G Suite deployment:

  • Core IT
  • Early Adopters, and
  • Global Go-Live

While deployments typically run for between 90 and 120 days in large enterprises, it’s useful to think of it as a three month effort. This can be quite helpful in laying out the deployment lifecycle plan for people working in the organization. The diagram below shows the three stages and key objectives of each.

Note that larger organizations will need the deployment to be phased out over a longer timescale, whilst other smaller organizations may move more swiftly.

Follow the guidelines here and the resources linked to from this course and you will achieve a successful deployment for your organization.

Core IT

In the Core IT phase, you’re working with a small group of IT professionals within the organization, upto 25 individuals, and piloting the deployment with them. This phase doesn’t create any change or disruption to the existing IT systems operating there. The successful provisioning for this group is critical in order to be able to proceed to the next phase. It provides an excellent opportunity to identify forthcoming challenges and issues and resolve them at this early stage.

Early Adopters

In the Early Adopters phase, you build on what you have achieved with the Core IT phase. Essentially this is a full deployment, but rolled out to between 5% and 10% of the staff compliment. Now, the G Suite deployment is more visible and you can use this phase to step up the technical rollout and especially the Change Management elements.

This phase should not be viewed as a technical rehearsal. It is rather a rehearsal for the organization. It is a Change Management milestone, where user acceptance is built. During this phase you will also enable Google Guides in your organization. These mentors will play a critical role in communicating acceptance and enthusiasm for new ways of working that are facilitated by the technology, G Suite.

Global Go-Live

There should be no surprises in the Global Go-Live phase. It’s primarily concerned with bringing the rest of the organization onto the G Suite system, thus embedding the Go-Live processes into the business. Pro-active communications and easy-to-find support are essential at this phase. During this phase, you will engage the Google Guides to support the workforce during this larger company Go-live.

As with any IT implementation, fast access to training is essential as there’s a critical window to achieve global user acceptance. Many IT projects fail because people were not adequately supported to use them. There are other reasons of course, but it’s seldom because of a fault in the technology.

As Google itself points out, the technology associated with G Suite works, and we know this because it’s working all over the world. Your job is to support your business in deploying G Suite and, most importantly, the processes it makes possible.
