Consultancy

What I can do for you

Being a consultant is like flying first-class.
The food is terrific, the drinks are cold.
But all you can do is walk up to the pilot and say, 'bank left.'
If you're in management, you have the controls.
Greg Brenneman

Business Consultancy is offered in the following categories:

Branding

There is a complete psychology behind why people choose what they choose and how they see the variety of products and services available to them.

Visual and auditory clues are the longest lasting and most beneficial for you.

Your company logo and color choices will affect your brand recognition.  

You must cater to your target audience, once you have determined which segment of the population you wish to target.

Contrary to popular belief, all businesses are niche businesses.  The difference is in how large your niche is.

Systems Architect

I design complete hardware systems using tried, tested and proven technologies, that are bulletproof and futureproof as well as provide maximum protection for both your company and your customers.

Services levels are rated in percentages:
99% = 7.20 hours downtime per month
99.9% = 43.8 minutes downtime per month
99.99% = 4.38 minutes downtime per month
99.999% = 25.9 seconds downtime per month

For internal systems downtime is multiplied by the number of idle employees your company has. For customer facing systems the downtime is multiplied by the number of both actual and presumed customers.

Software

In the world of software there are various categories:

• Tested & Proven
• Cutting Edge
• Bleeding Edge

Each has it's benefits and each has its drawbacks.

I investigate and analyse various software and the advantages and disadvantages as related to your company's needs, thereby allowing you to make an informed decision as to what fits your needs.
