Financing Alternatives – A Practical Alignment of Reality, Needs and Resources
Silicon Mountains has the resources and expertise to design and implement bespoke financing alternatives that create new business models which meet current IT and cyber security needs while seeking to turn cost centers into meaningful economic contributors of an institution’s budget. We do this through establishing a transparent understanding of institutional needs and vulnerabilities and providing alternate paths towards rational decisions targeting cost reductions relating to equipment and personnel, joint ventures, participation in financing platforms and participation in programs designed to monetize a health system’s hidden assets. Depending upon institutional needs:
- savings flow from bringing the cyber security platform under CRAM®, eliminating “technology band-aids” and their associated vendor and support costs;
- savings are generated through rationalizing the technology procurement process, utilizing economies of scale, potential joint ventures with suppliers and other partnerships; and,
- new sources of revenue can be found in monetizing existing resources such as data, patents and other hidden assets within an institution’s operating environment.
What our clients need or want in the IT and cyber security space will depend in large part on how they define their problems. In Europe, concerns center on the escalating costs of the IT and cyber security infrastructure. In the United States and Asia, the primary concern is thwarting mounting cyber security attacks. Irrespective of their geographic location, Silicon Mountains can help an institution align reality with needs and resources.
