We focus on advising businesses on how to best to use Information Technology to meet their business objectives. Our consultants have a deep understanding of technology, are aware of current IT trends, have many years' business management experience and can converse at all levels of business and IT.
The approach we use for IT solution design is different than most, as we place great importance on the total cost of IT components (both upfront and ongoing costs). Ongoing support requirements are proportionately the largest cost associated with an IT asset and can amount to many times the initial purchase price.
Our consultants will assess the business requirements with the goal of finding a balance between users' wants and the need for the organisation to provide access to applications and contain costs. Simple measures such as, 'locking down' components of an IT system may be unpopular with some staff, although could greatly reduce ongoing support issues.
Detailed system audits can be conducted to analyse the performance, assess the capacity, review the robustness and level of redundancy of existing IT components or the complete IT system. Based on your requirements, an IT review can provide recommendations on one or more of the following areas:
- System design – centralised, distributed, thin client
- IT infrastructure – servers, storage, virtualisation, computers, switching
- Applications and licencing – standard software, operating system licensing
- Security and protection – firewalls, antivirus, power protection, data protection
- Backup and recovery – data restoration and system recovery
- Communications – interoffice connectivity, internet links, remote access
Our experienced and qualified staff have conducted consulting exercises that cover businesses with five (5) staff through to companies of two hundred plus (200+) staff, covering multiple business unit requirements, with offices across many locations in Australia.
