Project Manager - Our team brings expertise in planning, managing, and coordination of all size projects, from conception to completion, regardless of your project scope, technical environment or business climate. We help you use technology to achieve your corporate goals, as an enabling tool for the entire business process.

Systems Analyst - If there are holes, we'll find them.  If there are places where "things don't tie on", we'll make recommendations.  We work with you in two ways: we help ensure the technical people understand what the business people want to accomplish.  And, we make certain the business people understand the realities of the technology.  You can rely on us to give you fast, objective assessments of all aspects of your environment, including processes, technology and organizations

What Catwalk Consulting Can Offer

 

As many of us have experienced in today's business climate, technology can be both the cause of and the solution to all of life's problems.   For those reasons, it's vitally important that your business has a strategic plan that demonstrates how technology can and will support your future growth.  As the backbone of your organization, technology is the enabling tool for everything you do.

How Can Catwalk Help?

We find out where the holes and gaps exist.  We make sure your right hands know what the left are doing.  We ensure that your infrastructure can support itself.

And while there are exceptions, today that usually boils down to technology - and how it interacts with your business and supports your goals.  Leveraging your technology to define and achieve your organization's goals is the overall outcome.  Yet, today many companies make the technology a goal in and of itself.  That's where we come in…

We focus on the processes and the links between them, your technology and your company - so you can get on with the business of your business.  You might need to:
       §       Provide access to information for a variety of locations and from an array of business applications
       §       Gain strategic insight into your data and what it tells you about your customers
       §       Systematically interact with your customers to ensure accurate and effective communications
       §       Streamline financial, sales, or operational processes

Your technology infrastructure can help you realize these goals and many more. And Catwalk can help you make that happen.

Catwalk works with you to assess the current state of your organization, and how technology is being used to support your goals.  While we are acutely aware of the financial and human resources needed to build and maintain a successful technology infrastructure, we believe the benefits that can be achieved are enormous. 

Because technology extends far beyond the hardware and software issues to core business processes, strategies, policies, and security measures, it provides the opportunity to reinvent operations and begin reshaping your organization to do business in the economy of tomorrow.

Our scope of capabilities allows us to help our clients plan for and achieve their goals and more.  We look at business strategy, processes, and organizational issues, as well as technology, in everything that we do. 

Our Proven Approach

We believe that in order to effectively assess how technology is being utilized, you have to look at every aspect of the business.  

Organization and staffing. This is the glue that holds together all of the infrastructure elements.  The mission and scope of IS activities, correct organizational placement of functions, proper level of expenditures, and competency of staff are extremely critical to the overall performance and success of all information systems activities.

Architecture definition and information technology strategy. Critical to the long term flexibility, efficiency, and efficacy of business systems.  The IT architecture acts as the foundation for all information systems applications, ensuring technical compatibility and interoperability and preventing technology proliferation.  The IT strategy then acts as the key construction plan for building on the architecture foundation, providing the overall perspective for how and when the business needs are to be addressed.

Business application portfolio. The business application portfolio has a direct and immediate impact on the day to day and long term success of the business.  It impacts all areas of the business from product or service delivery to customer service, to back office operations, to management oversight and planning.

Systems discovery and applied research. Critical to the successful application of IS resources in an evolving business environment.  Systems Discovery ensures the right projects are being worked on, i.e., those that directly related to the critical success factors of the business and/or specific strategic business initiatives.  Applied research moves the business forward by providing innovative solutions that materially improve the way business is conducted.

Systems development, analysis and design. Critical to the successful evaluation, selection or development, and enhancement of strategic systems which deliver competitive advantages, and for day-to-day business activities given the extensive penetration of information technology throughout the business.

Information management. In the course of normal operations, an enterprise generates transactional data that is reflective of its ongoing business activity, both as a result of internal business processes as well as those involving customer and suppliers.  These data are the raw material of the IT function.  How well IT organizes and manages this data and how well it makes this data available to executives and managers for business analysis directly affects profitability as well as the company's ability to monitor and control its operations.

Internet and eBusiness support. In today's information-rich business environment, a well-designed and maintained public Internet presence is crucial to the success of a business.  This assessment examines the IT department's use of Internet technology to assist the company's marketing, sales, recruiting, and other public efforts.  At a minimum, this strategy must include Internet-based marketing, sales, and customer service efforts.

Systems operation and management. This element provides for the management and operation of the enterprise computing facilities.  These facilities encompass processing, storage and peripheral equipment for the various technology platforms in use by the end-client, and supports the operation of numerous critical core business functions.

Network architecture and design. The corporate client-server environment is one of the most important IT infrastructure components within the enterprise.  It supports rapid, managed communications between employees, and provides a robust, flexible platform for application delivery to the desktop.  A well-structured and properly maintained environment is a determining factor in the health of an organization.

Help desk and production support. As the first line support for the resolution of field and corporate systems difficulties, the help desk provides an important element in the day-to-day operations of the business.

Education, training, and staff development. The competence and up-to-date skills of the IT staff are necessary and important building blocks of the information technology infrastructure.  Likewise, executives, managers, and end-user staff must clearly understand the ways in which information technology contributes to the realization of business objectives.  These individuals must also be trained in the systems development process, so that they can carry out their roles effectively.

Security and business continuity planning. The identification, evaluation, implementation, and administration of appropriate security mechanisms is critical to ensuring that the information and physical system related assets are protected against unauthorized scrutiny or utilization.  These aspects are directly related to a well-rounded business continuity plan.  As a last line of defense, the business continuity plan provides the playbook to keep your business running in the event of a disaster.

The End Result

Once we've completed our assessment, you will have a set of deliverables that detail the road to improving your technical infrastructure to a state where it will support your company's future goals and objectives.  Additionally, we provide a breakout of major initiatives that should be considered and the associated priority, along with a set of guiding principles for developing a technology infrastructure.  We'll review this information with you so that you fully understand what needs to be accomplished to get your technology house in order.  Then, the choice is yours.  You can move forward with your internal staff to implement these initiatives, or you can engage Catwalk for these activities. 

Catwalk has an excellent reputation for delivering winning strategies and outstanding business and technology services.  When you work with us, you are hiring an organization with the loyalty of a business partner and the “economics” of an outside vendor.  Our goal is to help you complete mission critical projects, efficiently and reliably.  Our team brings expertise in planning, management and coordination of projects of all sizes from concept to completion, regardless of scope, technical environment or business climate.
