IT Strategy, Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery
Getting the most from your investment in IT starts with a strategy to define how IT is to support your business and add value. Our business consultants have a background in IT and are able to offer you options that fit with your business plan. Whether it be ‘on-premise’ traditional solutions, hosted ‘cloud’ based solutions or ‘virtualisation’ solutions, our team can provide the expertise and options you need to make an informed business decision.
Whether it’s the business as a whole or for certain parts of the business, we can help you set clear objectives, evaluate the options, measure the Rate of Return on the investment and then project manage the change process.
Our consultants help you make IT achieve increases in productivity and to deliver efficiency savings and productivity improvements with an IT strategy that supports your business.
All of our projects are implemented according to agreed Project Plans which are updated throughout the project. Implementation is detailed into milestones and the outcomes monitored closely to ensure the system is implemented according to specification. This approach helps us install and implement new systems on time and on budget.
We use the principles established in PRINCE methodology to our new system installs. Whether it’s a new network or new Access Accounts system, we follow a stepped plan agreed up front.
Our consultants can perform a full audit of your IT system, fully documented and flow-charted as it is now and then work with you to understand what demands will be placed on IT in the future as you grow the business. The result of this is immediate performance issues are highlighted together with the immediate steps that need to be taken. Additional medium term actions are the beginnings of a strategy that identifies how IT supports the business.
Systems Specification & Selection
Not all businesses are the same and not all software solutions are the same either. Our business consultants can quickly understand your business and suggest alternative solutions that may be suitable. We can also guide you through the needs analysis, evaluation and procurement process to help you invest in your chosen solution wisely.
Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
Every business should have a plan to follow in the event it needs to retrieve data or operational capacity in the event of a disaster and a plan to follow to continue business. Working with the IAAITC, RMT has developed a framework that enables us to quickly assess the important risk areas to your business and put in place controls, both manual, procedural and technical, that can minimise the risks and get you up and running again.
