Architectural Services / Virtual CIO

ACT understands the Bermuda marketplace and is intimately familiar with the unique challenges in starting up and / or maintaining a business in Bermuda. Utilizing our in-house expertise we offer an array of architectural and virtual CIO offerings for our clients. Led by our Services Manager, who brings with her over 20 years of IT Strategy and IT Management experience our team of experts will work with you to understand your business objectives, your on-island (or off-island) expertise, and will collaboratively help you develop the right technical solutions to meet your business requirements. Depending on your unique circumstances the solution may be a “framework” for anticipated future growth or perhaps a full “business ready” solution. Regardless of your requirements our Architectural and Virtual CIO services can provide you with the right options. We offer both project based expertise and on-going business-as-usual architectural and virtual CIO services.

Project Services

We recognise that project requirements differ from client to client and ACT has the expertise to work with you to provide you with the exact service that you may require. We have the flexibility to provide:

Architectural services
Full ownership of project delivery
Additional project resources to join your project team
Project management expertise
Supplemental staff augmentation services

 

Utilizing industry best-practice our project management methodology ensures consistent successful delivery of projects. We will work with you to clearly develop project charters, statement of work and other project related documents to ensure that not only are the technical aspects covered but all business and administration aspects are looked after.

Staff Augmentation

ACT understands that there are times when our clients require additional assistance in performing day-to-day IT functions perhaps due to higher priority strategic initiatives, staff shortages or lengthy projects. With over 35 engineers on staff we have the breadth and depth to assist. Many of our Bermuda based clients do not have the requirement for a full-time in-house IT person and therefore utilize our ACT Staff Augmentation services to provide for a partial IT resource. This individual becomes an extension of your team and ACT will ensure that adequate backup resources are fully trained (at no cost to our clients) for coverage in the case of illness, vacation or additional support being required. Contact ACT today to learn more about our Staff Augmentation options and how they can assist you in lowering your operational costs.
