IT Project Review

A second opinion can always be useful.

IT projects move at pace and commonly experience fractures and issues. 848 project reviews can help you understand where fractures in the plan, build and run process may have occurred. We methodically examine every step in the process and every domain of the architecture to understand if any issues are critical. We are focussed on providing pragmatic and honest feedback. Pragmatic because we understand the pressures of delivering IT projects and that time, quality and cost can introduce compromises. We want to help you understand the risks, mitigate where possible and accept them with clear knowledge of the impact.

848 can call upon product and domain experts to back our EA’s and governance professionals if we believe we need to dig a little deeper. We aim to provide a rounded picture that can help the management team make reliable decisions in the toughest of situations.

Cloud Readiness Assessment

848 help you to carry out an objective assessment of your business and technology to define a cloud migration strategy.

Leveraging the power of the 848 Architecture Framework, we examine the key components of your organisation and the technology. In the infrastructure domain we can identify legacy technologies that need to be addressed, and benefits of moving them to the cloud or hybrid models.

Servicing needs can be examined to identify benefits in monitoring, event management and more. Security is assessed to show where leading cloud service providers can deliver vastly improved security over on-premise technologies. Applications are reviewed and assessed for migration or transformation opportunities and how that might be achieved.

On the journey the use of the architecture framework often helps us to identify opportunities for you in the future. We may detect opportunities to improve the availability of information, new ways of working for the business or process improvements. The common approach delivers this value add to all our services.
