We provide IT Consulting solutions and support, such as:

System Gap Analysis and System Process Review

Gap analysis is a tool that helps us compare the actual performance of our clients’ companies with potential performance, by identifying gaps between the optimized allocation and integration of the inputs (resources), so as to reveal areas that can be improved. Gap analysis involves determining, documenting and approving the variance between business requirements and current capabilities. Once the general expectation of performance of the client’s system is understood, it is possible to compare it with the company's current level of performance. We get in touch with the client’s personnel, review how things are done and we provide a detailed document with recommendations on processes that may need to be revised. In addition, we advise our clients regarding new features introduced since their last System Process Review and share best practices to help them, their staff and their system stay up-to-date and ensure maximum return on technology investment.

Software Development and Implementation

In order to effectively implement a solution, it is necessary to understand the needs and expectations of the clients’ case. Our implementation methodology guides both our client and our team through a set of best practices and tools in software development, implementation, testing, quality assurance and deployment. It ensures application of the best possible solution within defined expectations, budget and timeframe.

Definition and Analysis of Technical Requirements

Requirement Analysis is about determining the needs or conditions to meet in order to create a new or altered product. It is critical for the success of a development project, as requirements must be documented, measurable, testable, traceable, related to identified business needs or opportunities and defined to a level of detail sufficient for system design. With the use of object model (object and class diagrams), sequence diagrams, state charts and activity diagrams, we define all the client's requirements in order to analyse them and determine whether they are unclear, incomplete, ambiguous, or contradictory.

Architectural Design (Conceptual)

Architectural Design intends to direct attention to an appropriate decomposition of the system without examining the details of interface specification. Key constructs are identified, including significant architectural elements, such as components and relationships among them, as well as architectural mechanisms. By focusing on key constructs and abstractions rather than on proliferation of technical details, conceptual architecture provides a useful vehicle for communicating the architecture to non-technical audiences, such as management, marketing, and in some cases, users.

Detailed Design

Detailed Design is the elaboration of a higher level design by defining all components of a system and their underlying functional logic. A major task of detailed design is to read out, in detail, the attributes and methods needed by each class design. We will look at clients’ use cases and error handling, and as we go further into the details, we will look at their algorithm, state transitions, logical sequence and the way internal parts of the code work together. Every piece of information is documented in pre-agreed formulation with the client in order to be comprehensive and reusable.

Data Modelling

Data modelling is used to outline and analyse data requirements needed to support the business processes of a client. It defines the data elements structures and relationships between them, as well as the techniques and methodologies used to model data in a standard, consistent and predictable manner. The data requirements are recorded as a conceptual data model with associated data definitions. The use of data modelling standards is crucial for all projects requiring a standard means of defining and analysing data within an organization.

Information Systems Planning and Strategy

Management and deployment of information technology requires planning and strategic analysis. Information Systems Planning and Strategy considers the disciplines and skills involved in the delivery of information systems, technology and support in an organization. The clients’ concepts of services are examined carefully. Work efficiencies and information systems are strategically applied in their products and services to ensure competitive advantage.
