IT Audit and Consulting
Does your company really need digitalization? Are you ready to take risks and invest heavily in an information system that can be either useful tool, or a waste of money? Maybe you just need to add or adjust some current systems or processes so that the efficiency of the enterprise would increase significantly?
- IT audit
There are many seemingly useful digital solutions on the market that can cost literally tons of money. Our IT audit service is here to evaluate existing processes and systems of customer’s enterprise, describe them and propose clear and understandable options for improving or further developing the existing solution. This can be a transition from Excel tables to a more complex system or a small adjustment of an existing process. This can also be a combination of several systems into one or a complete replacement of different programs with one effective software package. Sometimes it’s just enough to slightly change the arrangement of homepage elements so that it becomes more convenient for customers to buy goods or use services.
As a result of the audit, the customer will have a complete and understandable picture of the software and processes of his enterprise, where the opportunities to increase efficiency and places where the client spends money for nothing can be literally pointed out by a finger. Main parts of the IT audit service are Business and system analysis.
- Business Analysis
The professional activity of a business analyst can be compared with the therapist-led treatment — the specialist finds out what exactly is bothering the client, gets to the heart of the problem, and then offers the best solution.
Business analysis answers the universal question: how to improve the existing situation? The development of any system or introduction of any changes in the enterprise begins with this step. Before starting to change anything, you need to thoroughly understand the current situation, determine the goals of the changes, create a new vision and describe what steps are required to move from the current situation to the described improvements.
Business analysis is not only related to IT sphere. Sometimes a thorough business analysis can help save hundreds of thousands of euros, since often it is not necessary to introduce new systems, but rather to modify inefficient processes in organization. Business analysis allows to determine what exactly is needed to be done to achieve the goal – as a rule, this refers to various forms of increasing efficiency. In the course of the analysis, the main focus is on the processes and benefits, as well as on the form and method of implementing an innovation. If necessary, a general prototype of the planned system is created in the business analysis report.
- System Analysis
A system analyst is a translator from the language of business into the language of technology. The system analysis itself is an applied part of the business analysis. If the earlier business analysis reveals what steps need to be taken to achieve the goal, then the subsequent system analysis will go into details, describing each specific process of changes and forming each part of the new system. The result of the system analysis is a ready-made requirements specification for programmers who will develop and implement a new system in the most effective way and within a minimal time frame. An equally important part of the system analysis is the integration of the new system into the existing environment. Also, system analysis involves the creation of a prototype, which serves as a visual example of a future system and allows the client to make changes in the course of the development process.
