Whether you are a small or large organisation (or even a person with an idea) that needs solid IT experience, Pillars can support you.
For instance, you could be: ... A large organisation looking for an alternative solution to reduce total cost of ownership, TCO ... Or are a small organisation that needs extensive database processing ... web technologies can meet these objectives.
Projects of this size can take on many different shapes; in a nutshell we are building business applications leveraging client / server technologies. The twist is that existing and emerging web technologies, such as cloud computing, are making these traditional technologies widely accessible and affordable.
As your "IT Department"
Pillars is committed to putting the right strategy of best practices and technologies together creating your business solution. How Pillars does this is threefold:
- Leverage traditional PM and IT structured processes ... Structured processes ensure costs are controlled, target dates met and deliverables hit the business objectives.
- Technical planning and system architecture ... When planning and architecting an application you need to consider many different items from presentation to platform choice. Not all applications will use the same technology and it is our responsibility to investigate what toolsets are best suited, then design and implement the application.
- Construct with change in mind ... Developing with the mind set that requirements could change can save projects. This is hard to do, but as your development team we are watching for the likelihood of change, and then employing development techniques reducing the risk of rework.
No one knows it all
Technologies, now more than ever, are changing and Pillars understands this point. To keep abreast of the new technologies, Pillars researches technologies that can provide business value for the short term and long term.
Recruiting for professionals is different in this arena as well. The importance has shifted from a person knowing a specific software product and version number, to a person's overall IT experience as well as being more business focused. Lastly, Pillars looks for people who demonstrate their lessons learned and have a result driven attitude.
