Solutions Advice for IT Solutions
Independent advice or
reviews of existing or proposed IT systems and
how they match to an organisation's requirements for an IT solution.
For a review of an
existing IT system, we normally start with the
documentation of the current system. If required, we can produce the
document which describes the current system in association with you and
your staff, if this documentation doesn't exist.
Having this documentation
allows the next phase of this task to be done
a whole lot more easily; this is the documentation of what the current
system actually does. This does sound like an unnecessary step, but,
from experience, it gives a great indication of what your current
system is capable of and how it's being used.
From this documentation, a
set of ranked requirements can be developed
in association with the Client which will form the basis of the
selection criteria for the new system;
what it must have, versus, what would be nice to have.
If you don't currently
have a system and you are evaluating whether an
off-the-shelf package will meet your needs, we also start with
documenting what you and your staff require and produce the set of
Client ranked requirements.
Without these criteria,
you leave yourself wide open to making
decisions based on what the Salesman or Marketing Representative says.
We don’t have an
"axe to grind", as the
saying goes, in what choice is made for an application. We can help
the selection process a lot smoother for you.
