Experienced – Transparent – Practical
Our mission is to help companies succeed in meeting strategic goals in IT. It’s hard to do, we know, we’ve been involved in hundreds of change projects around the world. We help customers gain a practical understanding of IT’s current state and design, implement and maintain IT programs that produce results. We do this by immersing our team in the culture of your IT department to figure out how to be successful with those doing the work. Our methodology has two core components:
IT Business Management Audit
RAPA is focused on the core IT practices that pose the greatest risk to financial health and reputation. Our proprietary audit technology (RAPA Insight) validates if key control data is present and the quality of that data.
IT Program Design, Development and Implementation
Our approach to program management is not theoretical. We align strategic objectives (top down) with operational capability and capacity (bottom up). Current state is proven through the audit process before program management begins.
