Consultancy

At Sequential IT we have significant levels of senior expertise in business and financial IT with large global corporations. From Lloyds of London Insurance Syndicates to leading global Investment banks, we can draw on large scale system designs and programme management. Our professional consultancy skills will enable your business to meet its crucial operational and software challenges.

In the current economic climate, more focus is being given to technology to provide solutions to drive the business and revenue forward rather than just providing a support mechanism. Sequential has the technical knowledge and expertise to provide your business with a professional, quality end to end solution.

Some of our main areas of expertise include:

Big/Disparate Data

Most firms have more than one system in which they store data. Usually these systems are owned by different companies, are written in different programming languages, use different technologies and data storage mechanisms, and are in different data formats.

Sequential IT uses its custom workflow and lifecycle tools and products to visualize the processes and data and transform each into a common format, where we can then present and aggregate the results. Using the Sequential IT "Excel Add In", we can provide dynamic reports where the user can drill down to further analyse the numbers. With our pratical and innovative software, we can ensure that the data is not tainted by manual processes, thereby ensuring all data is consistent, accurate and reliable.

Cloud Solutions

Sequential IT offers both private and public cloud solutions. We have, through our own flagship product, "Formation", as well as affiliate products, a complete range of bespoke and off the shelf PaaS / SaaS solutions for both small to medium businesses as well as large global organisations.

Advisory Services

At Sequential IT we can provide advisory services ranging for product selection to code and system reviews.

For in-house software reviews we typically take a three tier approach. First we can work with the development teams to analyse in house code to ensure best practices are being adhered to. This can dramatically simplify the design thus reducing costs and support burdens.

Next, we can work with the IT management to ensure that the correct levels of componentisation, ownership and accountability models and methodolgies are employed to create and sustain robust and scalable systems, both from a server load perspective, as well and a code-complexity and team size increase point of view. This also helps with release management, especially when the release of seemingly unrelated components interfere with each other.

In parallel, we can work with the business users and IT management together to ensure that the right balance of IT is provided for "Business Administration", which empowers the business users to control their business, and also frees up valuable IT resource to concentrate on IT matters.

Business Process Management

At Sequential IT we will analyse your current business processes, roles and collaborators. Using our custom workflow and lifecycle tools and products, we can abstract your business process from the technology infrastructure, providing transparency, advanced reporting and analysis services.

Once available in our platform, senior management can view and align resources with strategic goals and objectives, providing value add to your business and your clients. This will also enable you to respond to changing market, consumer and regulatory demands, creating a competitive advantage for your organisation.

Reporting Services

Sequential IT will use its custom workflow and lifecycle tools and products to visualize your processes and data and transform each into a common format, where we can then present and aggregate the results. Using the Sequential IT "Excel Add In", we provide dynamic reports where the user can drill down to further analyse the numbers. With these services, we ensure that the data is not tainted by manual processes, making the data consistent, accurate and reliable.

IT Strategy

At Sequential IT we can create or review your IT strategy, ensuring it aligns well with your business strategy. We will analyse internal capabilities as well as external opportunities, trends and threats to ensure that your strategy is current, your Return on Investment is maximised, and you are ahead of your competitors.

Project Management

At Sequential IT we have significant project and management consultancy experience to be able to provide professional and innovative approaches to large projects.

System Integration

At Sequential IT we will use our custom workflow and data management tools and products on top of our in-house platform, which will  enable disparate systems to interact seamlessly with each other, without having to re-write any of the applications. This enables us to streamline your business processes and reporting capabilities, allowing you to focus on your business and productivity through automation of your IT. 

Custom / Hybrid Applications

At Sequential IT we can provide C#, Java and Formation developers for any development requirements that you may have. These developers can be junior or senior and we will ensure that the relevant skills are deployed correctly. We can also ensure the the right blend of framework and in-house development is achieved. Additionally, we can source and mentor developers enabling you to build quality in-house teams. 

Social Media System Integration

At Sequential IT we have extensive experience with integrating in-house solutions with social media strategies and solutions. We can also offer one of our flagship software products "Formation" to make the integration seamless and more cost effective.
