To that end, we have developed sophisticated models incorporating best practices, policies, and procedures for a wide range of life cycle methodologies. Our Governance engineers and architects assist our customers in articulating their strategic direction, developing the critical policies necessary to achieve their goals, providing auditable criteria for measuring compliance, and in processing improvement initiatives implementation. We provide training and encourage analysis to highlight areas where standards and procedures can be enhanced.
