The Techworkshop

Since 2003, System Professional has been conducting detailed IT project, infrastructure and strategy assessments pertaining to a diverse set of client requirements.

 

Accessible, analytical, and risk-free

We’re known for using an agile, agnostic approach to tech infrastructure that factors in your needs and our experience to make sure that you always get the solution that works best for your business.

We’ve formalised that expertise in our TechWorkshop, using our core principles to create a methodology which gives you a systematic, thorough analysis of your IT environment. It’s the result of years of experience, designed to offer you a practical, comprehensive sounding board for your IT infrastructure planning, or as the first step to creating a bespoke IT system.

Weaving in your business objectives, it’s designed to help you grow and thrive, allowing you to concentrate on what you do best. Our clients tell us that it ‘provided essential information for our wider strategic planning,’ and that it allowed them to ‘mitigate risk by early identification of key issues.’ You can click here to read more client feedback…

 

Your needs, our experience

Our TechWorkshop is designed to be low investment, in terms of both cost and resources. It can be used to ‘sanity check’ a strategic initiative or project, verify whether an idea is viable, both technically and commercially, or provide deeper analysis for strategic IT reviews and planning, upgrades and systems improvements and greenfield infrastructure development.

With the rise of cloud hosting technology, many of our customers use it to develop cloud migration strategies. Use our experience and expertise to investigate dedicated hosting, offsite backup and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).

There’s no obligation to go any further than a TechWorkshop with us – sometimes clients decide not to proceed with the project, as the workshop has highlighted issues that they were unaware of previously. It’s accessible, analytical, and risk-free.

 

Why book a TechWorkshop?

We’d recommend talking to us about a TechWorkshop if you’re looking at projects which are:

  • Complex – gain a better understanding of the technical and commercial nuances of an IT strategy and its implications for service transition, project delivery and ongoing support.
  • Involve risk – understand and mitigate risk early on in any project.
  • Need investment – an insight into understanding the costs of maintenance and support for your proposed IT strategy helps you build a clear and concise business case.

 

 

How does it work?

  1. Plan and prepare– we’ll put together a highly skilled team to review all of your relevant IT and business-related documentation, prior to an onsite workshop.
  2. Current state assessment (CSA)– a detailed look at your current IT/ business environment and how it pieces together, making sure that any gaps are understood by both parties. We look at your organisation, staff and how they work, including everything from network, storage and virtual structures to physical servers, support, wireless and backup.
  3. Detailed requirements definition (DRD)– a detailed examination of what you want to achieve, from both business and technical perspectives. These requirements are challenged, prioritised and time lined.
  4. Solution scenarios and recommendations (SSR)– we use the results of the CSA and DRD to develop a bespoke solution, service scenario and give you a range of recommendations, with clear costs.
