The management of every company is facing issues regarding achieving competitive advantages, optimizing business processes and, respectively, increasing the value of its assets. Information technologies are an indispensable tool for business development. However, the selection of solutions and effective implementation requires deep industry knowledge and technological expertise. DAAC System Integrator has experience in projects from management audit of various IT areas to management of transition to new technologies.

Audit of IS and IT infrastructure Audit of Information Systems (IS) is the activity of collecting and evaluating proofs to determine whether the system is secure, maintains the integrity of processed and stored data, allows the achievement of strategic objectives of the company and uses effectively the information resources. During a system audit, the most common operations are the verifications, evaluations and testing of information means, and mainly:
  • Identification and assessment of risks in the system
  • Evaluation and testing of the management system
  • Verification and evaluation of information environment, management of information system, applications, network security, plans and procedures for data recovery, etc.
  • Testing data integrity.
Audit of IT infrastructure is a complex evaluation of how the IT infrastructure is designed and implemented in a company, but also the extent to which it meets the company’s needs and supports employee’s productivity. After thorough data collection, a simulation of critical scenarios is carried out, the gaps and the highly probable risks are assessed, and finally, several sets or recommendations related to the client opportunities are generated.
Design of Conceptual Architecture Based on the audit of the existing information systems, company specialists develope the concept of the future information system, which includes the following components:
  • The purpose and objectives of the system
  • Normative acts regulating the functioning of the system
  • Functional architecture
  • Technical architecture
  • Interrelationship with other existing internal and external systems
  • Preliminary assessment of system cost.
One of the most important functions of the concept is to determine the coverage limits of the future information system. This allows a real evaluation of the efforts needed for the accomplishment of the project still in the earliest stage of the project, and to exclude knowingly unachievable versions, thus increasing the likelihood of successful completion of the project.
Creation of Requirements Based on the concept of the information system, the companies’ specialists develop the terms of reference.

The terms of reference are a set of documents and specifications that determine the requirements to the information system and its functionality. To make the task more clearly for designers, who actually will create the information system, it is necessary to specify which information will be entered into the system, under which form, how should it be stored, and which documents (reports or financial documents) the system must generate. The terms of reference also determine the requirements to privacy, to protection level of information and many other „decorative” conditions, the system must meet. In drawing up the terms of reference professional those designers must be engaged, who primarily are deeply versed in all technical aspects and see all the possible „trappings” and, secondly, have special terminology and conceptual apparatus.
