Let Us Give You More Time to Focus on your Business Rather than your Technology
We will meet with your management to understand your business, the pain points you have with your technology and your vision for your future. We will document not only the things you need technology to do for you, but the way you want it to work.
Step 2: Evaluate the Environment
We will meet with key staff members to understand from their standpoint how their work can be improved; more efficient, more automated, more accurate, etc.
Step 3: Review the Approach(es) and Alternatives
Once we understand how your technology works and your goals of how you want it to work, we will do a detailed review of the technology you are currently using (or not using). We will prepare one or more options to improve your technology effectiveness. If you are already very effective, we will prepare a future looking plan to keep your technology viable in the future.
Step 4: Plan Solution(s)
We will review our proposal (and options) or proposals with you and tweak them from your feedback. If you elect to have us work with you on one (or more) of the proposals, we will start to plan the deliverables. If you decide to go another direction, you can use our roadmap to do so with your vendor/provider of choice.
Step 5: Implement Solution
Our plan will include specific deliverables, who is responsible and your budget needs on a timeline. Milestones and checkpoints will be identified so all parties will know how the project is performing and when their involvement will be needed. We generally like to phase the implementation of deliverables to help manage risk; this will also be identified in the plan and tracked regularly.
Step 6: Review Solution Effectiveness
The plan will set a date for review of the solutions implemented to understand if solutions are meeting your expectations. If adjustments are needed, those items will start this process over again with the requirements.
Do you need to validate your technology direction with an expert to be sure it makes sense? That it can be accomplished?
Do you need to fill in a few more detailed steps to get you moving in the right direction?
Do you have loose ends in your plan you don’t have the expertise to solve?
Do you need to brainstorm about where technology is and where it is going?
Do you need answers from specialized technology experts for specific questions?
Do you need help managing your overall technology across multiple providers?
Good News! We have years of experience in the technology consulting field!
We can help you with these scenarios and provide immediate value while you get to know us. Our business is 50% consulting and 50% products and services. Let us help catapult your technology to the next level.
SECURITY AND COMPLIANCE
Security IS the Number 1 technology concern of companies large and small.
- How do I prevent a data breach?
- How do I get rid of these constant email scams?
- How do I prevent ransomware and crypto hacks?
- How do I keep my staff from clicking on risky links?
- What security options do I have with the technology I have in place?
- How do I establish a plan and response before a security event?
A security plan must address all of these items (and more). A plan starts with an assessment of your security exposure and risk tolerance. A risk profile is developed, supporting a comprehensive plan to address your greatest risks first.
We can do a risk analysis on your current environment and present you with a tailored prevention and mitigation-based plan that uses some or all our integrated security services described here.
