All computer-related consulting starts with some form of systems analysis. Whether developing a data model, determining a network topology, or selecting software, we must first understand both the state of your current technology and the relationships between subsystems and individual components.
Our systems analysis starts with a free, on-site consultation to obtain a top-level view of your problem or objective. We then determine observational scope, dissect the problem/objective, identify requirements, make sure the solution works with other parts of the system, and propose one or more solutions.

Depending on the complexity of the task and our evaluation to that point, we may suggest a more comprehensive feasibility study, cost-benefit analysis, or other research before any final decisions or large investments are made. Occasionally, when we feel any lingering doubt about a particular aspect of the job, we'll call in a specialist: We don't allow arrogance to cloud our judgment and hurt our clients.
Systems analysis is particularly important when determining how to design and integrate new subsystems. Years of disparate purchases, company mergers, evolving technologies, and growing business needs can result in dissimilar internal systems that communicate with one-another poorly or not at all. Blade Technologies can bring your motley machines into harmony and simplify architecture to lower the costs of both IT and businesses operations.
