Technology Infrastructure

ti smallMany organisations are contemplating a move to adopt as-a-service to deliver their technology needs. However, most organisations still retain a degree of in-house infrastructure, even the early adopters of cloud services.

You have made a significant investment in your technology infrastructure and you need to be sure that you make the right investment decisions into the future.

Acumenti's Technology Infrastructure Services deliver analysis and advice on your organisation's current technology infrastructure including assessments of current state, future roadmaps, risks and opportunities.

These services can help you be sure your decisions to maintain or replace your technology infrastructure have looked at your current portfolio thoroughly and considered the impacts and risks associated with future options.

Acumenti has experience in developing cloud strategies and as-a-service decision-making frameworks to facilitate a move to an as-a-service for organisations looking to move in that direction.

Software Development

sd smallSoftware development is becoming less critical to the operation of many organisations as more and more off-the-shelf software becomes available in a form that addresses many of the needs of businesses.

However, some niche business activities are not well served with off-the-shelf software.

Acumenti's Software Development Service assists your organisation to make decisions on when to purchase of-the-shelf software and when to undertake a software development activity.

It can include:
  • analysis to help with the decision-making process
  • support for procurement and sourcing
  • assistance with selection of in-house versus outsourced development
  • advice on contractual arrangements
  • management or guidance on the project to deliver the software solution
  • guidance and support during implementation and rollout

Software Systems

ss smEvery modern organisation depends on software systems to deliver its business functionality. Yours is no different.

These systems are often complex, interrelated, integrated and are fundamental to the operation of your organisation.

Acumenti's Software Systems Services provide clarity of understanding of your software systems and the business activities they underpin.

This understanding drives:
  • improvements in decision-making about which software systems your should deploy
  • understanding of the opportunities in the market
  • avoidance of vendor lock-in
  • the ability to achieve the right balance of control between your organisation and software vendors.

Services in this area include:

  • solutions architecture
  • options analysis
  • business case development
  • integration architecture
  • software roadmaps and blueprints


modeling smSometimes it is difficult to get an understanding of what it means to make a particular decision. What will the impact be? Is there a break even point? Should I do more of one thing and less of another?

Acumenti's Modelling Service provides a mechanism for an organisation to explore possible future scenarios and estimate the impacts of different decisions.

This is typically done across the portfolio to examine things like future costs versus budget; future savings; future workloads versus capacity; and, other performance related estimation.

As data is accumulated, modelling can also be used to improve estimation for future projects in terms of cost, time to complete, and risks.

Efficiency / Optimisation

effeciency smAre you getting the best out of your technology investment? Do you know whether your current costs and performance are good or bad? In most organisations there are opportunities to reduce costs and improve performance that are not only easy to deliver, they also improve your ability to do more in the future.

Acumenti's Efficiency / Optimisation Service examines the current practices and full lifecycle costs of operation of your ICT to provide an analytical basis for targeted improvements.

The process includes modelling of genuine opportunities for improvement; targeting of areas with the biggest potential impact; moderation of selection through an examination of achievability; and, engagement of stakeholders to maximise outcomes.

The result is a highly targeted program to improve efficiency that maximises the chance of delivering improvements and releasing budget for high priority activities.
