Absolute Performance - Aproach Art

 Our elite team of IT experts take a proactive approach to assessing your company’s strengths and vulnerabilities to inform a modernization roadmap to the future.

We start by listening.

When you partner with API, you will be greeted by a team of collaborators who act as an extension of your IT department to understand where you want to go and help you get there through innovative, ROI-based applications of technology. We’ll engage you in a two-way exchange of ideas centered on six core, interrelated dimensions that drive best-in-class IT solutions:

  •  Business: We begin by first understanding the essentials of your business, including products and services, your competitive standing, any major initiatives on the horizon, and your goals for the future.
  • Process: Your business is backed by a series of core programs and processes—from critical business areas to technology—and we want to hear all about it.
  • Technology: What does your current information technology foundation look like? From infrastructure management and core applications to data centers and more, your technology powers your business. We will work with you to understand what you have in place today and how it maps to your business and core processes. 
  • Cyber security: Crucial in our world today, we’ll then look at your cyber risk profile—from policy and procedure to access controls and Security Information Event Management (SIEM).
  • Organization: Understanding and mapping how your core organizational gravity centers of business, process, and technology interrelate with critical support functions.
  • Governance: Finally, we’ll assess your business’s service levels and audit and compliance requirements, and also understand how your company and IT department measures success so we can align to your efforts

The end result:
Your API assessment will result in an executive-level dashboard-like view of critical areas highlighted by levels of risk, along with a deeper diagnostic and strategy review that will help in enabling your go-forward roadmap.
