Selecting or upgrading your organization’s information systems is a crucial and costly decision. It’s time consuming to determine what to automate and how best to do it, not to mention the catastrophic implications of selecting the wrong computer hardware, software, applications and technology infrastructure. That’s why it’s critical to have an experienced and knowledgeable team devoted to selecting new information systems.
Our trained professionals help many companies like yours successfully select new information systems. Working together, we discover how your business currently performs its processes, identify business process enhancements and determine how technology can be used to improve your operations. And just as important, we make sure the technology fits your business, instead of making the business fit your technology.
Our approach to systems selection often includes the following elements:
Business requirements definition. We define your specific business requirements for a particular technology or information system.
Strategic assessment. Your current IT systems and technologies are analyzed with respect to your business strategy.
IT system specification. We help to develop detailed specifications for your IT systems.
System evaluation and selection criteria. Guidelines and recommendations are created for evaluating and selecting products and vendors to fulfill your technology needs.
Contract review and negotiation. We prepare new contracts and service agreements and review those already in place.
Implementation and conversion services. A timely and accurate conversion is guaranteed with project management support.
When it comes to the systems that support your critical objectives, just keeping up is not enough. To compete, you need to stay at the forefront of the information economy. We help you reach those goals by assuring your systems fit both current and future strategies.
