Our Teams have almost ten years of experience in integrating Trimble NIS with SCADA, AMR, CIS, automated alerting solution and more. We have a deep insight into Trimble’s data model and good relationships with experts from Trimble Solutions. Together we can work out the best solution to meet your business needs and deadlines. We prefer working with industry standards like CIM (IEC 61970 and 61968 series), CGMES and ICCP (IEC 60870-6) to provide the required compatibility and flexibility to keep up with the pace of your evolving organization.
We don’t see ourselves so much as working for our clients, but rather working WITH them. Close cooperation with the customer is our priority. Our objective is to build long term partnerships and this can only be effective if its based on open communication. We can deploy a team of developers to work at customer premises, when pertinent, in order to guarantee the success of the project and bring down the administration overhead.
Have you received a Security Risk Assessment that says your organization’s ICS cyber security should be better and the suggested first step is to change the passwords in all those thousands of different devices that have been installed over the last decade? Easy to say in a report, a little harder to figure out and put into action in the real world.
Industrial control systems are a lot different compared to a regular ICT. Not only because availability always beats confidentiality, but also because they are cyber physical assets as well. We not only work with our clients to build the plan to react to the security assessment, but stick around to help put it into action.
The successful project begins from a good plan, one that can grow and adapt to real world conditions through the project life-cycle. We have found that the first critical component for an engagement is working together to create a comprehensive analysis of the actual technical environment and conditions of our client’s network so we can then introduce the objectives/conditions/requirements of the project our client wants to create. This is our first deliverable for any project and once its completed we can precede to mapping out the next steps with our client, regardless if its a software development or consulting project. The Catapult Labs Project and Engineering Methodology (PEM) is our way to get started.
Do you have an idea how to boost your organization’s efficiency or service quality, but need help in assessing its viability and forming it into a concrete project?
We can help with business analysis and IT governance to make sure that your resources are utilized in best way to add the most value to your organization. Our team has ten years of working experience inside Utilities developing business requirements and solution architecture as well as supporting management in implementation of the new solutions.
It goes without saying that we believe in combining various agile development methodologies for our SW projects, that approach has to be balanced with not only a touch of common since, but also a built in level of flexibility that allows the development process to react with real world conditions. This means working together to establish the proper specifications and requirements from the beginning so the application we build fits into our clients existing IT systems correctly. We are also big believers in the usability (UI/UX) of what we build and push to integrate agreed upon KPI’s so we better understand what we got right and what needs to be improved over the life-cycle of a solution. Developing a tool is only half of the equation, ensuring that the experience of the people using that tool is positive and useful is the other half.
