The On-ITS Way
Ontara IT Success (On-ITS) is a technology consulting practice that serves biotech startups, financial services, investment companies, and non-profits. We provide ongoing technology management as well as develop IT processes and systems for internal IT support. Our services include regular system reviews/audits and business risk technology advisement.
Ontara’s approach to Information Technology comes in 3 parts:
Information: Data and who should get to it.
1. Data access is resilient, secure and available to the right people.
2. Identity Management: verifying the right people.
Technology: The technical systems and tools.
3. The infrastructure to provide the right people access to the right data.
How is Ontara IT Success different than Managed IT Services
The On-ITS Team serves as your internal IT Department. Ontara partners with your IT or Operations staff for long term planning and short term implementation to help achieve your business goals.
Your Managed Service Provider is your external IT service.
What does IT Success mean?
IT Success is about business results not just technology results.
IT Success includes an iterative process of reviewing, correcting, and refining technology alignment to standards and agreed upon policies.
On-ITS standards are for business protection and systems excellence, not for implementing a cool technology.
We select technologies and configurations that meet the business needs of our clients.
We perform regular Technology Alignment Reviews.
Technology Alignment Reviews ask questions that may be technical and detailed but directly affect business technology success. Following are the types of questions we review:
Is network infrastructure of the quality required to support business?
Is network infrastructure configured to our standards which are designed to support our client's business needs and simplify our support capabilities?
Are cloud services setup securely?
Are cloud services licensed properly?
Is their data backed up and easily recoverable?
Do their people know the rules around getting access to their data?
