How to bridge the gaps between business and technology


Let’s face it there are gaps in understanding between roles and disciplines everywhere. We all have our specialities. For information technology solutions to work, we need clear understanding between all parties. This allows projects to be delivered on time and perform as expected. So, how to bridge the gaps between business and technology?

You need an analyst

But how do you make this happen when you don’t have an analytical person in-house? This is a particular problem in small and medium sized companies. You can’t afford to hire a full-time business analyst or IT director. Yet, you can’t afford not to digitally transform your business. Your competitors are doing it already, or there is a start-up waiting to disrupt your market.
I recognised this issue in small and medium businesses 4 or 5 years ago and it stuck in my head. I was looking after technology strategy for a medium sized tech company. I dealt with suppliers all the time, and was able to define things well and get the correct solution for our needs. Yet, it struck me that firms in other sectors had difficulty defining their needs. I’ve confirmed this in many conversations with business leaders and technology suppliers since.
There is a gap between desires, expectations and delivered solutions. How? Why? Well, one reason is that the business rarely takes the time to define its needs in sufficent detail. The supplier then has to make assumptions. They will usually seek clarity from the client. Great, but the client doesn’t have the time to give it the attention it deserves. They assume the supplier is the expert and all will be fine. Guess what happens?
“Assumption is the mother of all **** ups!”

The Service

So, when it came time to set-up my own technology company, I created a service to fill this gap. To help smaller companies get the IT solutions they need to be more productive. To digitally transform if you will. To avoid buying solutions they didn’t need. IT, like other sectors, has its bandwagons. The popular solution may not be the right fit for every business.
We take the time to help our clients understand their needs earlier in the process. It’s a longer term strategic approach. It avoids many of the common pitfalls and you get more appropriate solutions. Guess what, it saves money too as you can see from our testimonials.
Bridging disciplines with information technology is at the heart of everything we do. This makes things easier, quicker and more efficient. From collecting real-time data from sensors (e.g. Internet of Things (IoT), SCADA). To improving, augmenting or replacing business workflows, systems and processes with appropriate software.
We have built up cross discipline skills over many years. Designing, developing and managing IT and other technology solutions to industrial needs. These apply to any industry sector. But, what are our key differentiators? Interpreting and uncovering underlying needs. Translating those to a scheme that makes development and implemention easier.
Our methods avoid many of the pitfalls of engaging external, and in some cases internal, IT solutions providers. They produce better suited systems that people want to use, with less drama, and more quickly. So Analysis Logic reduces the risk and cost by helping you define the requirements more clearly at the outset. We can then guide you through execution.  We bridge the gap between your business vision and the technical decisions needed to make it happen.
