Information Technology is a necessary component to any corporation’s operation in the internet age. An agile, flexible, leading edge IT architecture, with the latest systems and smoothly operating organization is the dream of every CIO. Those dreams become nightmares when the architecture is antiquated, the systems go down frequently and the IT organization is deemed a "necessary evil". Osirius’ IT Consulting Services can help to assess the current environment, pinpoint problem areas, identify actions to resolve those problems and develop a plan to take you there.
Virtual/Augmented Reality Visualization
As the old saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words", but what if you could interact with that picture? What if you could step into the world where that picture comes alive with motion and sound and touch? That is how Virtual and Augmented Reality can transform a simple picture into a transformative experience. Think about how your customers would react differently if you could provide them with an experience rather than a presentation. We can help you to provide these experiences with a suite of services aimed at taking your traditional sales and marketing methods into the future.
Program/Project Management Consulting
Effectively managing the IT work that is undertaken in any company is a challenge that often becomes more complicated than the team had envisioned. Without an effective program and project management practice these complications can quickly lead to cost over-runs, poor quality, missed requirements and an overall risk to the operations of the business. Bringing the best practices of the industry into an enterprise is a no small task, but our experience can help you to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your projects with the services described below:
Business Intelligence and Analytics
Most companies are gathering data, and storing it in data warehouses, or other “big data” stores. The question is how much value are they getting from the data they are collecting? Are they collecting the right information? We can help with leveraging these data assets for feeding business decisions, faster to increase the speed to insight. The faster and more accurate decisions are made, the bigger the advantage you have over the competition.
Governance, Compliance, and Risk Management
These are three pillars that work together for the purpose of assuring that an organization meets its objectives. Problems in any one of these areas can put the entire operation at risk of failure.
We can help assess and recommend actions to make sure that your Governance, Compliance and Risk Management synchronizes information and activities across your organization in order to operate more efficiently, enable effective information sharing, more effectively report activities and avoid wasteful overlaps.
Organizational Change Management
The culture of an organization is a very powerful entity, that many initiatives fail to take into account. I’m sure we all can point to experiences in the past of how a vast corporate change was announced, only to die a slow death. An effective change management strategy is required to make lasting impact on an organization and we can help you to define the strategy to institutionalize the changes your organization needs for future success.
Application Rationalization and Modernization
The radical reshuffling of an application portfolio is part of an application strategy needed when an IT organization accumulates an unmanaged collection of applications through years of shifting business strategies and/or a series of mergers and acquisitions. An important goal of the rationalization is to eliminate redundant and non-value-added applications, reducing future software development and maintenance budgets. The strategy includes replacing, retiring, modernizing or consolidating applications to a more strategic portfolio.
Application rationalization steps for success:
Part of the Rationalization strategy will include legacy modernization, which includes several options for addressing fragile, aging systems:
Business Process Optimization
An organization can only move as fast as their business processes allow. If the processes rely on extensive manual touchpoints and require non-value-added steps, then they will weigh down the operation. The process also needs to have the appropriate governance oversight to assure compliance to standards. The first step to take in addressing the issues is to perform business process modeling of the current state. Once documented, the processes can be analyzed to determine opportunities for automation or streamlining. Those opportunities can then be optimized for efficiency of time and resources to achieve the required business objectives. Finally, the optimized process is rolled out to the organization for implementation.
