A company is well-known for its shipping of packaging overseas. It has been in the business for over a decade. Lately, it has been having problems keeping up with the demand and the timing of the delivery of packages.
A consultant has been assigned by the chief executive officer (CEO) and chief information officer (CIO) to handle the dilemma. In need of more facts, the consultant contacted the chief knowledge officer (CKO) and chief financial officer (CFO). It was decided to revamp both the current software used to process orders and a need to automate the old, ineffective IT infrastructure. The consultant hired a team that was very instrumental in achieving the goal of the company to revitalize the company’s enterprise systems architecture (ESA) and long-term objectives. She did so by applying the latest state-of-the-art technology that included OpenCart software and using RAID (redundant array of independent disks). She really hit the target, implemented the upgrade, and took the company back into being a true A+ company.
Moral of the Story
Spending money on outsourcing and hiring the right staff to handle your IT and business problems may not be a bad idea as most CEOs and CIOs seem to avoid doing. Using the latest technology is a good indication that the company is willing to invest in the advancement of the company and willingness to achieve its goals.
