General SUSE Consulting Offerings
Many customers need staff augmentation for those predictable times when in-house resources are scarce and projects are time-sensitive. One-week Consulting will help you to plan for those emergencies.

Delivery Excellence Review
If you need a health check, we can provide a Delivery Excellence Review to help you on your way to system improvement and operational efficiency.
We have developed a uniform and effective methodology, the SUSE Unified Delivery Process, which is used in all SUSE IT consulting engagements.

Furthermore, the process can be leveraged by SUSE or by one of our trusted partners, guaranteeing a consistent delivery for every project.
The SUSE Unified Delivery Process defines a flexible framework for delivering either small or large projects. The process allows for the creation of a project plan tailored to the specific needs of the engagement while maintaining delivery best practices. The SUSE Unified Delivery Process also provides solution delivery guidelines, templates, sample deliverables, and tools for all critical development activities.
Whether you work directly with SUSE, or through one of our qualified and trusted partners, you will benefit from the advantages of the SUSE Unified Delivery Process by taking advantage of SUSE's broad project and product experience. Through this process, we can effectively help you:
