How to Future-Proof Your Firm’s IT Systems

As with anything else in the world, business information technology ages. To ensure it stays relevant to your business operation needs, it is essential to develop a technology strategy that will be as relevant in the future as it is today. Overlapping networks, redundant software, and ageing technology cost your company money while also hindering the ability to streamline operations and stay competitive. Our team of expert consultants, together with our architects and engineers perform system analysis & design (SAD) to identify the best strategy and technology for your specific business.

Furthermore, the team designs and implements the relevant technology based on the results of their analysis. In addition, we provide your company with ongoing support, helping your firm to reap the benefits of a streamlined and highly relevant integrated system across all departments.

Our Main Services

Our main services in this regard include, but are not limited to:

  • System analysis – assessment and evaluation of the various business IT and processes with a focus on the automation of the key functions.
  • Architecture– developing the right foundation.
  • Analysis and development of new business processes – with the aim of improving the efficiency and subsequent productivity of the processes, thereby helping to reduce operational costs.

Of course, IT jargon doesn’t do much for a better understanding of what we can do for your company. As such, we take a closer look at the meaning of systems analysis & design.

It is used as an umbrella term for the various approaches and methods that exist for the development of a highly efficient integrated information system that combines the IT, professionals, and relevant data to support the requirements for a particular business operation or range of processes. The analysis part consists of the collection of facts about the software, technology, and processes and the in-depth assessment of the facts for gaining a better understanding of the working, problems, and components that form part of it.

The purpose is to study the existing IT and the various components with the aim of identifying the objectives of each component. It basically boils down to problem identification and solving for improvement. This has as end-result: the better usage, replacement or improvement of components to ensure it can be optimised to reach the identified objectives. At the end of the day, the analysis is about the specification of what the system must be able to do

What Is the Design Part?

If the above is the analysis function, what does the design part entail? The function entails the planning of how to replace the current system or to create a new one. This is achieved by identifying and describing the parameters of the various components and ensuring that such meet the identified requirements. In order to perform the planning function, it is necessary to gain an understanding of the system to replace, streamline, or to adapt. This helps to assess which components can be used and in which way to ensure best operation efficiency. The design function is about achieving the identified objectives.
