Business Application Review

Many companies have grown organically and have deployed various legacy software applications from numerous suppliers and on different platforms over a number of years. This has led to situation were maintenance costs are high, there is a lot of manual re-inputting of data between systems, there are numerous customer databases and it is difficult to get a high level management view of the operation. CMC has experience in analysing existing business environments and recommending a roadmap for getting more value out of your existing investments or making the decision to go to the market to evaluate next generation solutions.

"The IT Strategic Review conducted by CMC provided our school with clear strategic direction, achieving a collaborative and collegial collection of detailed data and evidence of current practice and knowledge of the unseen, invisible personnel hubs of learning and “blockers” to progress, as well as providing a structured and signposted map for future direction."
