RISE solves problems in information technology. Problems in information technology are never solved solely with information technology. RISE research, development and consulting is therefore - provided it is not a purely technical topic - always industry-oriented and domain-driven. A good understanding for the domain, a fine sense for the mindset of a technical sector, the structuring of priorities according to the premises of the underlying domain are the key to project success. Good IT ultimately depends on a proper mix of methods, procedures and techniques. This mix is directly defined by technical concepts, domain knowledge, industry customs and established technical use-cases. A good IT-architecture mediates sustainably and long-term between the technical options of the current year (+5) and the requirements of the specific industry.
Hence, RISE measures the emphasis between technological and professional innovation at the beginning of a project and adjusts the project staff accordingly. RISE will never solve technical problems you don't have or underestimate technical specialities within an industry. RISE has provided services and collected experience in many different entrepreneurial and public sectors. We have focused some of these industries into competence centers (CCs).
RISE is familiar with the challenges due to long project experience. RISE has many planning references as consultants and planners for ministers working on future topics. We think of us as qualified for neutrally supporting governments and public institutions and meeting the requirements of citizens in the 21st century. The success stories of projects in the fields of national ID, public portals, governmental data center operations, communal IT, integration and migration in e-government are today's foundation for safe investments and solutions for the "internet, Google, mobile and Facebook-generation", that takes its time for adapting and flexibly providing established processes for older generations. RISE plans and builds e-government for all generations.
For more than ten years, the public sector has been transforming into an extensive service and information provider for citizens. This radical change has to be supported with appropriate information systems. RISE has been vitally concerned with different topics in e-government for more than 20 years and has internationally established itself on all levels:
- Communal (e.g. one of the most modern city and communal administrative systems)
- Regional (e.g. planning a regional PACS and tele-medicine enabled network in ME)
- National (e.g. introduced ID-cards nationwide, government-networks internationally)
- European (e.g. electronic fare-money management, unification of European taxes)
RISE offers sound solutions and expertise in the area of enterprise architectures, business information systems and integration. Only those companies that now invest in enterprise IT architectures that will lead in the medium-term to a reasonably homogenous decision flow, will be in a position to support new business processes quickly and comprehensively in the long term, to adjust quickly to changing market conditions and to employ new technologies profitably.
Corporate IT is the nervous system of the corporate body. The speed, flexibility and agility of an IT department when mapping the business objectives of management in IT systems are key assets when competing in the market. Aside from the integration of new technologies into corporate management, large companies have a number of legacy systems and require increasingly more assistance with
- the integration and coordination of old and new systems
- effective procedures for making "make/buy" or sourcing decisions
- the establishment of a sustainable, long-tem IT strategy of the company
RISE is available as a strategic partner for achieving new goals such as the alignment of IT to a company's dynamic business environment. In addition to research and development services in the area of ERP and corporate systems we offer project-related consulting services in the areas of project, quality and risk management. RISE can help you establish an internationally recognized, stable IT strategy in your company, based on real projects.
Today, telecommunications and information technology have grown together. The importance of communication has not decreased in any way. Communication has become part of information technology. Information technology includes communication and penetrates further and further into the organization of companies and the everyday life of the consumer, it integrates work and leisure.
Communication, bandwidth, availability and access are all parts of information and communication technology (ICT) and prove to be one of the big technological mergers of the 21st century. Watching TV, phoning, using information systems, from management control over health monitoring to controlling devices, doors and driving cars - all of these are activities that merge step-by-step into one technological platform. The high penetration of mobile devices makes every person an end point in a very, very large network. In the past, RISE has gathered know-how in building network infrastructures, taken responsibility for many solutions and established unique innovation powers in the mobile sector. Our knowledge about IT-security, high availability of networks and our work in mobile device manufacturer's research labs allow us to attend and lead this global unification of information and communication.
A broad industry knowledge, many experts from the construction- and rebuilding-phase of the telecommunication and mobile communication industry, combined with our versed implementation expertise, gives us the capability to establish mobile parking systems, GPS-based fleet management, special mobile commerce solutions, mobile money, particularly bug proof network technology for confidential information and state-of-the-art best-practice solutions in time and budget.
