Bridging the gap between business and technology, I bring value to an organization by converging innovation and the solutions that drive business forward. From discovery to design, build and deployment, I shape the tools companies need to make their business grow. From beginning to end. My role is clearly one of a 'leader', someone who realizes ideas with the help of others - As a team, a group of like-minded individuals that share common objectives. Whether the team is yours, or you prefer to involve my team of first-rate professionals - We get the job done! On time, on target and within budget. A proven four-prong approach forms the basis of my services and rounds-out my business-oriented information technology portfolio. They are offered as a whole lifecycle concept, or individually to suit your needs: Discovery The measure of success for any project begins with its requirements. Getting to understand every nuance of what's expected from people and technology is one of my specialties. Bringing business and technology together, speaking one language, fostering comprehension and support for those with trepidation is the secret of my success and one of the reasons I have never NOT completed a project successfully. From interviewing the business-team to documenting business requirements specifications, I deliver and reinforce all activities surrounding Discovery. Design Innovative ideas are more often than not someone's vision of how to drive business forward. In order to realize these ideas, they must be shaped into a tangible understandable format so that the business itself can absorb the realization of this vision into its enterprise architecture. Through years of experience, I have designed and shaped many frameworks and architectures that are able to sustain the need for cost-effectiveness, for growth, for scalability and security. From 'little jobs' to 'big projects' and beyond, share your vision with me and I will show you a sure-fire way on how to get there. Build There are many ways to build something, but only one way to deliver it - On time, as promised, and with infallible quality. Whether you bring a team of experienced 'builders', or I engage my team of professional developers, one thing I can assure you of - The outcome will be excellent! Supporting the build-process through complete project- and process management, lifecycle development, agile or otherwise, there is little my customers have to do but watch their vision grow. I offer the latest technology has in store, advise customers on what they really need and what not, keep the costs considerably lower while maintaining the highest standards, and control or steer a build-out so that my customers can concentrate on what's important to them - Namely their business. Deploy From old to new, deploying newly minted solutions requires a keen understanding of the business at hand, its people and processes, the culture and history. I view this part as the "trickiest" of challenges when deploying a new application or system. This is where 'closing the gap' between business and technology becomes inherently important. Deploying 'closure' means showing the business how things work, engaging people into accepting and supporting the new, and demonstrating how business will be better for everyone involved - From employee to client. I consider this a personal forte, as closing a project successfully requires people to be on board with the vision and goals set forth in Discovery.
