There is an effort required for things to change for the better. But it is always worth the effort.
It is essential to the on-going success of a business that the organisation is empowered to resolve, by active participation, any areas that limit their business, for now and into the future. In the arena of Information Management, Debraneys’ role is to guide and assist in this taking place.
Consulting has been the founding cornerstone of Debraneys since its inception in 1995. Businesses sought Debraneys services because they were interested in doing things in new ways. Computer technology was here to stay and they did not want to be left behind. Digitized economies were seen as the way of the future. There was a sense of excitement in finding new ways to harness the potential of these new tools.
Across the years, Debraneys’ client base and experience grew. Businesses had different needs. Computer based tools were present everywhere and change was rapid. Debraneys found that we were increasingly called upon to make recommendations regarding problems that organisations were experiencing with regard to their IT investment, their return on that investment, and their growing frustration that the IT systems they had were not adequately supporting the running of their business and not coping well with change. Furthermore, their IT investments required significant ongoing spending to keep them functioning, even when they yielded inadequate results.
Digitization has accelerated. There has never been a greater requirement for improved digital competence and effectiveness for all businesses. It is critical that fundamental problems with regard to managing digitized information are resolved.
You cannot survive in business today without competently and effectively managing the information that is the concern of your organisation.
The notion needs to be dispelled that worthwhile changes, in what is done, and how it is done, can be undertaken for an organisation, without the direct involvement of the people in the organisation. It is an empty promise that some businesses try to sell.
It needs to be replaced with a growing awareness of how satisfying it is to be a vital participant in things changing and improving in your business.
Problems are there to be identified and solved. Real problems have real solutions. There is always a way forward.
Debraneys can assist an organisation to begin where it is now, to develop skills to see areas that limit the business and to engage in the steps required towards their resolution. Every good step makes a difference.
