Our consulting philosophy is the result of early and varied experience in providing mission-critical solutions to businesses. Those concerns encompassed business/systems analysis, database design, documentation and training. We utilized process identification and information mapping at the outset of their application to technology in the early 1980's. No life cycle or individual implementation is ever proposed without thoroughly researching the business and logistic workflow of manual processes and those to be re-engineered or newly developed. Our knowledge is best applied where automated, one-source, cross-platform integrated solutions are the desired result. We are cognizant of the ISO, W3C, IETF, HL7 and ITSM organizations, where standards have been established; as well as Sarbannes-Oxley, Six Sigma, SAS 70 and CMMI compliance protocols. Recent projects have included the development of functional specifications from user requirements and the provision of help documentation and training for resulting applications. Our current research concentrates on strategic eTraining, eCommerce and application integration, using industry specific frameworks with XML in an n-tier environment. We use iterative models for instructional design, Bloom's Taxonomy and the accepted manuals of style for work in the respective disciplines. Comprehensive / targeted analysis drives our recommended solutions and implementation.
