1E’s unique Analyze-Optimize-Realize Methodology “This is the only IT project I’ve ever worked on where anyone was focused on ensuring a positive return.”

Proven Model for Success
Finding true business value
It’s unquestionably true that organizations are frustrated in dealing with IT companies. The problem is that projects never seem to be delivered on time or bring the benefits they claim. The typical model of scoping, implementing and supporting a project ignores how enduring value will accrue to a customer. All too often, determining business value from IT is at best estimated or not even considered. It doesn’t have to be this way.

A virtuous cycle of Analyze, Optimize, Realize
Today’s business managers have demanding expectations.
