Running Ecommerce Programmes
The Online channel is now critical to company success and your customers know that.
Customer expectations are always increasing, which is why there is a need to keep web-sites and the mobile offering up to date.
Not only that, but your web/mobile offering can easily become slow and complicated over the years, and requires regular attention and upgrade. We help with the analysis of your online estate, and provide recommendations that will help you plan this activity.
SmartaTech is experienced in re-platforming and renewing web offerings, leading the development and ensuring strong business ownership continues
Using the Cloud
The Cloud is there to be used, and many companies have now recognized that there is no escaping the benefits of cloud computing. Not least the ability to scale elastically and build in resilience and redundancy at manageable prices.
There are clear cost savings to be gained, not least resulting from greater ease of managing compute power, and making the most of your large data centre investments.
DevOps is growing fast, and new skill sets and knowledge need to be nurtured to make the most of it. Technology is becoming easier to control with the Cloud, not harder, as tools become more mature, and Infrastructure as Code is a given.
We have experience running in and deploying to the Cloud. Allow us to help you benefit from this important facility.
Getting Architecture To Work
Building for the Future is vital. Many problems found in IT today result from short-sighted decision making of the past, and human inability to predict the future!
We endeavour to help you see the "wood" despite the complexity and history of the "trees", thus moving to a better underlying architecture
We believe in action rather than documents, small steps rather than expensive direction changes, and getting hands dirty! Allow us to help you and your architecture team become not just the gatekeepers, but the teachers of your organization.
