We deliver best of breed IT consulting services every day since 1999 for large international companies:

Strategy

To define an infrastructure strategy consists in setting objectives in accordance with the environment and the available resources, then implement them in order to benefit from a competitive advantage. It falls within the company’s strategy as a lever to optimize costs, expand quickly abroad, improve its “Time To Market” or create innovative digital services, driver of growth.

Study

The strategic objectives should then be declined into concrete projects, which should be made sure to be technically realizable and economically viable. It is therefore a matter of designing, testing the different identified, in order to come up with a complete decision file, whether on the technical, organizational or financial aspects.

Sourcing

Resorting to the best services and surrounding oneself with the best suppliers is key in a very changing environment. From the traditional request for proposals up to the negotiation by mutual agreement, the entire art lies on the manner with which one manages to have the supplier answer expressed needs without pushing him away of its zone of excellence. It is also a matter of managing the suppliers and the contracts when the operational staff takes the lead after contractualization.

Transition

Managing a transition project, or even a transition program when it concerns a set of concomitant projects, is orchestrating the intervention of numerous stakeholders, internal and external, with respect to deadlines and allocated budgets, through the identification, documentation and collection of the risks in order to allow for an efficient arbitrage by the client and to reach the objectives set initially.

Optimization

The exploitation of a solution consists in maintaining it operational in a steady, safe and secure manner; thus it may be necessary to ensure a systematic monitoring through adjusted means of metrology and reporting. More important difficulties may also appear and it is acknowledged that one should identify and resolve them by conducting technical or even organizational audits.

Organization and Infrastructure Management

Infrastructures must be organized, managed and handled in an optimized manner in order to efficiently treat internal clients’ demands. One should also, in line with the HR strategy and sourcing strategy, identify and allocate the right competencies at the right moment. Further, the creation of a catalogue of services and specific reporting means are essential to carry out the daily activities competently.

Our Profession First

Our strategy lies above all else on a real vision of our profession. Networks and telecommunications have widened to Information and Communication Technologies. This decisive sector has become the key of all other sectors, which draw on information systems as a growth. We see ourselves as a genuine look-out enabling decision-makers to master this complex subject. The stake is eminently strategic: infrastructures constitute a prerequisite to the conquest of new territories as well as a major innovation approach. They will be the source of the new services our clients will launch on their respective markets.
