Strategic Technology Management

When it comes to IT, change may very well be the only thing CIOs can depend on...
-- CIO Insight

Traditionally, there has always been a separation between IT and Business. In years past, IT was able to dictate solutions because they controlled the technology. With the advent of the personal computer and inexpensive Intel-based servers, the business is now able to implement their on technology solutions outside of the realm of IT. They were forced to do this because IT failed to recognize the business's needs. The results were numerous disconnected systems that failed to work within existing environments.

Today, the "do it alone" mentality of both the business and IT must give way to a cooperative environment where IT becomes an integral part of the business process. Only in this way, can IT help provide solutions that improve the business process. Eastlack Technologies can provide the technical expertise coupled with business understanding to help the successful merging of IT within the business process.

Project Management

Developing and deploying information technology solutions is a very expensive and risk-prone endeavor. The United States spends more the $250 billion each year on IT application development. The average cost per a project is over $2.3 million for large companies, $1.3 million for medium companies, and $434,000 for small companies. Only an estimated 26% of projects are completed on-time and on-budget.

There are many flavors of Development Life Cycles being practiced today from the traditional Waterfall Life Cycle, the latest fad. Whatever methodology used, Eastlack Technologies possesses the experience to effectively manage the process, the product, and the resources.
