IT PROCUREMENT & DESIGN PRINCIPLES

It is imperative for organisations to get the initial design and architecture of complex IT projects right first time. When designing an IT solution the idea of running a proof of concept (PoC), which assists enormously in the overall understanding of the business requirements, is often overlooked.

It is of paramount importance that any given solution is fit-for-purpose, can satisfy the business needs throughout its lifetime and sits in line with the business strategy.  By working alongside project sponsors and third party suppliers, IT design principles analyse your over-arching business requirements, not just IT, to facilitate the delivery of a seamless, end-to-end solution.

  • Pre-defined processes and workflow

    All businesses want an improved ROI which can only be achieved with a flexible and efficient procurement strategy. IT design and procurement should consider all benefits including reduced system complexity, lower risk, flexibility and potential for expansion.

  • Source fit for purpose products

    With increased system complexity, system integration, data security and a labyrinth of associated demands, understanding the requirements of your business is merely one step in a multi-step process. Identifying suitable new technologies and solutions must be driven with a distinct purpose.

  • Purchase in line with the business strategy

    IT Infrastructure should enable a business to realise its ambitions. A strategy driven by stakeholders representing all key areas of the business will guarantee a defined lifecycle, maintenance and replacement plan.
