IT Reviews/Audits

You want your business to run as cost effective as possible. I conduct reviews (audits) of your IT processes and applications to help you identify areas for improvement. My reviews cover application lifecycle, application performance, skills assessment and many other areas.

The following list are the areas in which I am prepared to provide a review/audit.

Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)

The ALM Review helps you identify the best IT practices to ensure business success. Application Lifecycle Management includes project management, hiring of developers, and standards for development, testing, QA procedures and much more.

IT Architecture

I have identified a set of check-points to ensure your Software Architecture supports your application development both today and in the future. My architecture checklist is designed to find those areas of your architecture that may be a bottleneck in developing your applications. I look at your standards, processes and procedures for developing applications.

Application Performance

If your application runs slow then your users and/or customers are unhappy. This will directly affect your bottom line. There are many reasons for performance bottlenecks. I have time-tested procedures to help you find these bottlenecks and resolve them.

SQL Server

I have been working with SQL Server since 1992 and through each version I have developed a complete checklist of what it takes to keep it running fast and secure. I know the areas to check to give you the most bang for your buck. I help you and your team identify areas that speed up performance and ensure the health of your server.

Developer Skills Assessment

My Skills Assessment Review identifies areas where your developers require additional training. I help you identify the gaps in your developer's knowledge in relation to your business goals. I then recommend the training, mentoring or other courses of action to help your team build the necessary skills to meet your goals.

If you don't see what you are interested in, just ask. I might be able to accomodate you.
