Our clients want to explore the art of the possible, but they lack the time required to stay current on the latest digital infrastructure technologies and trends. That’s why AHEAD has invested so heavily in our briefings center and lab facilities.
Each year we host more than 300 clients to our offices for educational briefings, visioning workshops, and access to our state-of-the-art labs, to explore the possible across all facets of the digital delivery platform, from cloud strategy, to enterprise monitoring and analytics, to security operations, and the latest in data center modernization.
These accelerated assessment and roadmap development sessions are facilitated by AHEAD principal consultants and tailored completely to your requirements. USing AHEAD frameworks as guides, we create a vision realization plan which includes a baseline assessment, high level roadmap, risk mitigation strategies, and critical success factors.
The entire experience was fantastic from the hotel to the great dinner conversation to of course the session itself.

Briefings come in two forms: Executive Briefings and Technical Briefings.
In executive briefings, we take an emerging trend and explore how its latest developments stand to affect your company, and more importantly, how you should respond. Our facilitators are experienced practitioners; not academics. They guide the discussion, outline different solution options; and share best practices.
In technical briefings, we provide a deeper examination into one of the many digital technologies that we design and implement with clients; including some of the most cutting edge technologies just hitting the market. Our engineers review and refine your technology roadmaps, and evaluate different technology choices in light of your company’s objectives.

Our labs serve as home to the latest digital technologies, so that you can explore their capabilities alongside our certified engineers and architects. Our labs are located in Chicago (at both our HQ and at Equinix), Nashville, and Atlanta. Lab access is designed to meet the following needs:
- New Product Demonstrations, where you get to see certain technologies in action.
- Personal Sandboxes, for deeper exploration and hands-on access for your team.
- Configurations and Upgrades, where we test either processes with you in a safe environment.
- Proof of Concepts, where we actually mimic your workloads.
