A Full Range of IT Services, Customized to Meet the Needs of Your Business.

Business Consulting.

The Internet is littered with IT project horror stories; massive budget blow outs, scrapped systems, sackings and the inevitable blame game.
While your average IT project doesn’t fail as spectacularly or as publicly, for those involved it can be very stressful and very costly.

So why do so many projects fail?

  • Clients don’t have a clear understanding of what they want.
  • End users are not involved in scoping the project.
  • Developers don’t deliver what is required but only what they can actually deliver.
  • Budgeting and estimation is more art than science.
  • Ambiguity and assumptions in the project plan cause delays and budget blow outs.
  • Lack of a formal change management process.
  • Poor testing of the project against the requirements.
  • Problems and difficulties during development negatively affect the client / developer relationship
All of these can be avoided when you have an experienced online business consultant in your corner.

Project Management.

While analyzing and defining your requirements is very important, it is equally important to document, prioritize, organize and manage the resulting tasks and deliverables.

With a wealth of experience in managing both small and large technology projects, Solar Hill Solutions can help you make the right decisions to ensure that your project is delivered as expected and when expected. In a nutshell, the process includes:

  • Defining a list of clearly defined tasks and deliverables based on your requirements.
  • Reviewing and assigning the amount of effort, in terms of both time and resources, required to complete the tasks.
  • Determining what the critical path of success is for the project by prioritizing tasks and recognizing dependencies.
  • Documenting potential risks to the project and providing a mitigation strategy.
  • Liaising with all project stakeholders include external suppliers.
  • Proactively manage each of the tasks so they are completed in a timely fashion.
  • Negotiate changes to project scope and requirements and ensure that the project plan accurately reflects the status of the project

Business Planning.

A business plan is essential for your business. It encapsulates and articulates the direction of your business and allows you to keep track of progress towards your goals and objectives.
The right planning will increase your awareness of your target market, help you to understand your financial needs and highlight your strengths and weaknesses. Solar Hill Solutions can help write a business plan that will help you understand the factors that can affect the success or failure of your business.
Being able to identify and maximise opportunities will give you a significant advantage over your competitors.
  • Examine its viability and potential of your online business.
  • Communicating your vision, mission, values and goals.
  • Define and develop your unique selling proposition (USP).
  • Create a comprehensive strategy to measure progress and success
