Mindmill’s experienced consultants can also offer advisory services for:
  • Technology refresh/New technology adoption advice: Often, and rightly so, the process to upgrade from a legacy IT systems to state-of-the art software product is a complex decision making scenario. Mindmill can improve the competitiveness of clients through a set of consulting practices that result in knowledge-intensive business solutions with appropriate Information technology components.
  • Data quality audits, and performance optimization: Most well-run businesses subject themselves to regular internal review. Data bases and data warehouses, too, need regular review to ensure that they remain aligned to corporate objectives and operational performance targets are met. Mindmill consulting is able to offer expert assessment on whether a data warehouse remains suitable for the needs of the business. These audits can be targeted at specific areas such as data quality and provenance, database performance, and aggregation strategy or take a more holistic approach looking at the needs of an organization as a whole. We also conduct performance optimization analysis by investigating the general performance characteristics of the data warehouse before looking at significant problem queries. Where appropriate we will recommend remedial work to improve performance.
  • IT infrastructure consolidation strategy: Organizations, either through merger and acquisition or from departmental initiatives, often operate multiple data marts, data warehouses and reporting systems. Mindmill will give high-level advice on the best ways to align legacy infrastructure and packaged software to support the business’s strategic goals.
Our philosophy ?“Lets Aim Together to Climb Higher?/b>

For IT projects to be successful there needs to be a traceable chain of understanding from the highest level business requirements through to detailed technical delivery. The planning phase of a IT project should create an awareness of the business?overall information model and its associated data assets so that subsequent technical design decisions can be made more pragmatically and technology delivery can proceed with greater focus and efficiency. Success in the build phase of a IT project requires a blend of close project management, development agility, high user involvement and early visibility of deliverables. To achieve this a clear but flexible implementation methodology is needed along with in-depth knowledge of product functionality and development approaches and techniques.
