Requirement and Evaluation Studies

All our projects have a strong component of requirement analysis where we seek to understand issues relating to data flows, meta-data, indicators required, and the supporting work practices. The aim is through this analysis conducted in collaboration with clients to not only automate existing processes but to also rationalize and integrate them so that the clients can gain more value from their information systems.
