Cloud Readiness Assessment

Cloud Readiness Assessment

Deploying the opportunities of cloud computing in the right way to a large extent determines the user satisfaction and use of IT services. Quint’s Cloud Readiness Assessment affords organizations insight into how they might be able to put this relatively new development to use. Quint Wellington Redwood has more than 20 years of experience in assisting with insourcing and outsourcing projects. The multi-disciplinary approach to our Cloud Readiness Assessment can be seen in Quint’s unique phasing model. Quint's Cloud Readiness Assessment allows you to determine whether you and your organization are ready for the choice of one or more cloud computing delivery methods and offers you insight into the contractual and financial aspects.
Big Data Strategy

Big Data Strategy

Regardless of their degree of maturity, Quint helps organizations to develop and implement a fitting data strategy which specifically and appropriately addresses the questions above. Key concepts in a successful data strategy include a shared awareness and understanding of the value that data analysis can have for your organization, from the perspective of both IT and the business processes supported by it. Although many tools are available for data analysis, data only really becomes valuable with human comprehension and targeted application. In the strategy, the focus is not just on the internal use of data, but also on the opportunities that open sharing of your internal data could generate for you. A well thought-out data strategy may lead to a better return on your data and an increase in the speed of its use.
Master Data Management

Data Management Services

With our Data Management services, together with you, we ensure that your data is managed in a structural way. The data-to-action cycle really becomes shorter. Your data has business owners who guarantee its quality, ensure that the data is part of the architecture and that it is managed transparently via master data management. Data improvement (on time, correct, and complete) is realized in a structured way. Moreover, we ensure that the need for data improvement is kept to a minimum. Together with us, your IT department ensures that data is made available in a reliable and fast way, in compliance with security and privacy regulations.

Microsoft LifeCycle Roadmap

Microsoft LifeCycle Roadmap

IT decision makers are requested to play both an organization-oriented role (focused on helping IT to become more efficient) and a customer-oriented role, to help develop new markets, products or customers. In line with such responsibilities, IT decision makers are now being called upon to make longer-term planning for the IT services portfolio, demonstrating supported development , in line with the strategic plan for customer services. Supported development of the IT services portfolio guarantees predictability, stability and control for the business and hinges on the support level of the underpinning Microsoft technologies. This is subject to understanding the intricacies of the Microsoft product support lifecycle policy. Quint delivers a series of strategic, facilitated workshops. During these workshops, the Quint strategy team leads the initiative towards joint building, and presenting an actionable and achievable 3yr roadmap
Application rationalization and renewal

Application rationalization and renewal

Your application landscape will become manageable, structured and standardized based on a method in line with the business processes of your organization. The landscape will be mapped out based on a number of aspects, which will be jointly identified. In the first instance, the focus will be on the core business applications. The recommendations that emerge from this will then have to be implemented in practice. When we advise on the replacement of legacy items, Quint focuses more sharply on the available technology in comparison to current possibilities. Usually, the trigger to replace systems is related to the complexity, availability or risk of downtime of legacy infrastructure. When you map out the application landscape (or create a heat map), you gain an overview of the existing information systems as well as insight into their complexity and cost. Standardizing the landscape makes it easier to link information between applications, which in turn increases the flexibility to use the information available within the organization. The costs of expansions, changes and replacements are easier to achieve when the number of interfaces is reduced.

Assessing Application Architecture

Assessing Application Architecture

You will gain insight into, an overview of and coherence within your application landscape. This puts you in a better position to take well-founded decisions. Quint provides recommendations on the use, content and support of the application architecture. Recommendations not only help you get to grips with the architecture itself, but they also offer improvement actions for use and for interfaces with the business processes. We also formulate specific improvement actions to take your application landscape and the associated architecture to a higher level. Further, we provide you with an appraisal of the application landscape in terms of maturity and take-up. At a later stage, Quint can also provide support with actual implementation of the improvements. We can also investigate improvement opportunities and plan the simplification of your landscape with the aim of rationalizing your overall application portfolio.

Assessing IT Infrastructure

Assessing IT Infrastructure

You will obtain an overview providing insight in the coherence of your infrastructure and within your data center. This puts you in a better position to take well-founded decisions. It could be useful, for instance, when moving your infrastructure (or part of it) to a cloud solution and/or when outsourcing your infrastructure or data center. You will then be presented with an assessment of the operational and management processes in terms of their maturity. If necessary, we can help you improve these matters further. We also formulate specific improvement actions to take your infrastructure and data center and the associated architecture to a higher level. Finally, we offer you options to improve and to simplify your infrastructure and data center, and by doing so, reduce the overall cost and complexity; we also show you what tools you can use to achieve this.
New Ways of Working

New Ways of Working

Quint’s approach to NWOW deepens insights. Insight into the functions and processes, insight into the culture, insight into the available IT systems, insight into the vision, insight into management actions and insight into and coherence between the indicated areas are essential for the successful implementation in which the spotlight is always on the ‘employees’. Knowledge of the current situation creates an understanding of the potential that New Ways of Working could have for the organization as a whole, but specifically also for the various roles and departments. For instance, the extent of any existing New Ways of Working practices is mapped out, and a realistic but challenging level is set. In the next phase, milestones are set along with the specific steps that need to be taken to achieve the benefits of NWOW and we then help the organization achieve these.
Coaching and Training of Architects

Coaching and Training of Architects

Quint helps architects to build a bridge between management and architecture by providing relevant training on the exercise of their discipline and coaching in the use of instruments that architects can use to have an impact on their immediate environment. Architects will increasingly have to focus on their role as a trusted advisor. Apart from a specific training for architects, it is also possible to support architecture management with training. This management training will teach you to effectively support architects in their day-to-day work and give leadership to specialist professionals. This support or direct coaching covers the aforementioned aspects in individual or group coaching sessions. Management has a key role that makes it possible to apply some skills in practice. The outcome must be an architect that operates at a higher professional level, thinks more about his conduct and makes a greater impact on the environment.
