Need some specialist skills for a short time?
Don’t quite trust a vendor to give you independent advice?
We can supply people with the skills you need to get the job done, who transfer knowledge and skills to your people, saving you money on hiring expensive staff for temporary needs.
You gain knowledge and skill where you need it, instead of it walking out the door when a contractor leaves.
We can supply three kinds of people: integration experts, technology specialists, and process gurus.
Technologies don’t work in isolation. Your website needs a server to run on, software to drive it, and a network to connect it to the Internet. If your systems aren’t integrated, you’re not getting the best value from them.
Our integration experts know how to get all the pieces working together in harmony, and how to keep them that way.
Sometimes you need a little extra help. Perhaps you have a thorny problem that you need solved quickly. Perhaps you need some independent advice, free from vendor bias.
We have specialists in a range of technology domains who can advise you, or work with you on a temporary basis. They have years of experience with these technologies, and know the hidden pitfalls.
Technologies we know well include:
- IP networks, particularly Cisco systems equipment
- FibreChannel networks, Brocade and Cisco
- Storage infrastructure, including NetApp, EMC, IBM and HP
- Databases, including Oracle, MySQL and Postgres
- Virtualisation, particularly VMware
- Operational monitoring systems, such as BMC Patrol and CA Unicentre
Having all the technology in world is pointless if the process for using it isn’t right.
Our people are familiar with all the major frameworks, including ITIL, TOGAF, CMM and CoBIT. We can help you choose the right processes, structures and metrics to get the maximum benefits from your investments in technology.
Techniques, frameworks and tools:
- ITIL, CoBIT, CMM, TOGAF, Agile
- Open source software
- Project management
- Business analysis and business case development
