IT-Scan

We create a baseline for your application landscape to maximize your organization’s impact.

When executing a development project it is important to have a baseline before executing the intervention. Otherwise, how would you know what to improve and if the intervention has been effective? This rhetoric is the same when it comes to your application landscape.

To improve your organization’s application landscape, there needs to be a baseline to identify which is:
How your organization is currently settled and managed in relation to how you would like your organization to have it settled and managed.
By indicating the gaps between the current situation, the must-haves and the nice-to-haves, we can help your organization to create a plan on how to improve your IT in support of your core processes.
For example, if the IT-landscape has been neglected this can pose risks towards the business continuity of the organization. By identifying the gaps in the IT-scan, a proper roadmap will be made to improve your IT-landscape, so your organization will be able to maximize its impact and be a front runner.

Why an IT-Scan?

  • It provides your organization with a snapshot of your current technology landscape;
  • It highlights gaps in your current structure, including aging and inefficient technology;
  • It highlights options for improvement through smarter use of existing applications, and introduction of new applications;
  • It identifies areas where your technology is actually impeding productivity;
  • It allows you to structure a coherent plan for the purchase of new equipment and software.
