IT Architecture and Infrastructure

Technology has the potential to revolutionize the way we do business. But many organizations struggle with IT applications, networks, and infrastructure that no longer meet their growing business needs.

How do you determine what needs to be done when IT architecture and infrastructure is not your area of expertise? The Barrington Consulting Group can help you plan, design and implement IT solutions that make sense.

We'll work with you to identify and implement a technical architecture and infrastructure that best supports your current and potential needs, and streamlines your business processes.

Our extensive experience in information technology and our complementary expertise in business helps us design technical solutions that scale and adapt to your changing needs.

Talk to us about how we can help you solve your IT architecture and infrastructure needs.



IT Operations and Service Delivery

Technology is a lot like electricity; you don't realize how much you rely on it until it fails.

For many organizations, downed systems mean ineffective employees, frustrated customers and unhappy stakeholders. So making sure that technology systems are well supported, maintained and serviced is essential to the overall success of a business.

The Barrington Consulting Group can help you design and implement Service Management and Service Support frameworks to help ensure your technology systems are reliably serving your business needs.

Leveraging methodologies such as the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), we can help you define your support requirements and develop detailed support processes and procedures, data exchange agreements and service level agreements.

Legacy Modernization Implementation (Upgrading an Older IT System)

Technology advances at the speed of light. Once 'state of the art' systems are now too expensive to maintain and are no longer able to adapt to the growing needs of the organization.

But how do you approach modernizing your legacy system? How do you prepare? And how do you ensure that nothing – and no one – gets left behind?

The Barrington Consulting Group has worked with a number of businesses to help them bring their legacy enterprise systems into the 21st century.

We can

  • help determine what portions of your system are working well, and what are not, what data to convert and what functionality to include 
  • transform the legacy application to a new architecture and operating environment
  • ensure your valuable data and functionality is not compromised in the move to a modern application environment
  • leverage this opportunity to upgrade your processes and functionality to align with the goals of your organization, pushing the 'IT' change to enhance overall business performance

Quality Assurance and System Testing

Testing of systems and applications is critical to the success of any development project. In order to achieve a successful systems implementation, all aspects of the testing phase need to be reviewed to incorporate the software and IT elements.

The Barrington Consulting Group helps clients develop an overall testing strategy, and provides consulting services to support the various phases of QA and testing. Barrington's testing methodology leverages an organization's people, processes and tools to provide quality solutions to meet their goals and objectives.

Security and Privacy Services

Privacy is more important to businesses than ever before. The ability to protect your own and your customers' or patients' data is essential.

The Barrington Consulting Group has extensive experience and expertise in the development and implementation of security and privacy systems. Our network security-certified consultants understand the importance of privacy, and the implications of its absence. They can help you develop the appropriate solution through a variety of processes, including:

  • Identity and access management (e.g. user authentication)
  • Infrastructure and network security (e.g. anti-virus software)
  • Securing network architecture (e.g. firewalls, wireless security)
  • Security for management (e.g. security policies)

Our consultants can assist in the creation of Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) to help you comply with privacy legislation. We work with your organization to communicate policies and best practices to protect your business information, and to help you comply with legislation. In this process, we help you ensure that additions or changes to business processes, systems, applications or programs will not compromise the protection or privacy of information in any way.

Some of the tools we employ in our security and privacy services include:

  • security assessments
  • threat risk assessments
  • information security policies and procedures
  • security awareness
  • intrusion detection and prevention
  • vulnerability assessments
  • business continuity planning
  • disaster recovery planning

System Implementation Partner

Organizations choose to adopt new information systems to increase efficiencies, provide additional services, and add value. But often, the complexities of implementing a system can be time-consuming and cumbersome, causing frustration for management, staff and clients alike.

We approach System Implementation as a way to help our clients eliminate confusion. We apply a pragmatic approach to ensure that the system is high quality, meets the needs of the business, and can be maintained and supported smoothly. 

System Implementation draws upon our extensive experience in Project Management, Business Analysis, Change Management, Technical Architecture, and Quality Assurance. But what our clients value the most is advocacy; they know we're working on their behalf to ensure their best interests are met.

This client-centric approach results in system implementations that meet business needs, are well adopted by users, and are delivered on time and on budget.

Talk to us about how we can help with your next Systems Implementation project.



System Requirements and Selection

IT system selection and purchase can be one of the biggest decisions organizations undertake. You need to ask two big questions:

1) What do you need the system to do?

and

2) What system can do the job?

The Barrington Consulting Group brings extensive knowledge and expertise to help you answer both of these key questions.

We help organizations find solutions that best align with their functional and technical requirements. And we help to objectively weigh all the key components that must be considered. This approach, combined with our extensive involvement with systems implementation and management makes us adept at selecting the best solution.

We offer:

  • objective, forward-focused advice on system selection
  • critical thinking about your furure requirements
  • advocacy -  helping you determine everything the system could – and should – do for your business
  • guidance to select the right system for your needs
