Mergers and acquisitions
The best negotiated deal, the most carefully worded contract, will not deliver the desired results if the two entities cannot work together peacefully... and reasonably quickly after the deal is completed. Questions abound. Centralize or maintain distributed systems and synch at intervals - and how?
Getting on with business after a merger or acquisition is essential. We have watched numerous takeovers where incompatible organisations were merged and suddenly required to work together. The effects were at times, chilling. When the business practices and culture of one is imposed on another without proper explanations and training, an uneasy mixture of processes begins to churn. It is imperative to have a "buy-in" from major stake-holders of both groups to ensure a smooth transition.
BinaryStar believes the number one factor - along with personnel management - that will enable two cultures to be merged effectively, is careful IT planning.
It is never enough to simply replace BigDogs' centralised data centre with FastCats' client/server structure by simply investing in a few hundred PCs and new networks. Instead, the organization must examine how and where its processes and procedures are inter-twined with enterprise applications - the core "stuff", and how much they need to change to benefit both worlds. While the slick user interfaces available in client-side applications are compelling, getting data to the desktop's of individuals during and after a merger, requires careful integration planning.
IT incompatibilities can derail or seriously delay a merger. It is imperative that organizations put IT integration planning and modeling, high on the agenda. This can be a unique opportunity to create an efficient, unified IT strategy that offers the best of technology to both merged units.
BinaryStar provides insight and experience in IT integration, migration and data presentation.
Bringing new ideas to life - Web Engineering
We design and build innovative web applications - to be reliable, scalable, secure and easily supportable.
Web engineering is a multi-disciplinary process involving a complex mix of software tools, human factors engineering, skills, techniques, databases, programming languages, standards and protocols. We present ourselves as experts in the integration of web components and data. (We make them work and play well together ;-).
Strategy and Analyses:
Rapid design, rapid delivery
yet the need to maintain a centralized secure pool of documents, notes, and reference materials is essential. Soft data is the "stuff" that doesn't fit the normal confines of data fields.
Our methods enable storing documents as "soft data", fully indexed, in a centralized repository that can be accessed from anywhere on the web, or secured (and made very very private).
Think "super-linked-hypertext-information", accessible with a web browser and totally under your control, not Google's. Private indices are transparently built, making any topic immediately accessible (security permitting).
Hierarchal, multi-layered security controls ALL access. Changes made to any page, topic or document are fully auditable. Each change details the date, time and userID as well as the before and after versions - from inception.
Resolve control, audit, reporting and security demands imposed by regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and others. Every access or change to a document leaves an audit trail of who did what, when - with details.
A strictly enforced, unified change control maintains complete version control and security for every document managed or modified. Previous versions can be reviewed and compared, highlighting differences at any stage along the life-cycle of a document.
Extensive configuration, hosting, security, data integration and fail-safe options are available.
Particularly suited for managing the information needs of professional groups and associations as a "cloud-based" environment, EMS supports public areas that anyone can view, and a private, secure area, restricted to members with a registered login and password.
