Bulletproof IT Projects
My name is Jonathan Eunice. I co-founded Illuminata, and serve as its Principal IT Advisor. Our business is providing insights and advice about Information Technology (IT), the most powerful tool humans ever created. We help clients invest in, build, and deploy IT–but we’re not a vendor, system integrator, or service provider ourselves. We’re independent advisors, helping enterprises, service providers, and investors think clearly about where they are now, where they’d like to get to, and what steps are necessary to get there.
I’ve been reviewing information technology products, technologies, strategies, and projects for over twenty years. I started on “Wall Street” helping financial advisors discover what tech company stocks to buy and sell, and I’m regularly called upon as an expert witness in legal cases and procurement disputes. But the heart of our business is industrial assistance–helping you understand: What works? What doesn’t? How to make it work? How to avoid having it fail in painful, costly, embarrassing ways? and Where should we go from here?
For twenty years, I’ve helped IT producers, consumers, and investors get the best returns on their investments, and avoid pitfalls along the way. I work with some of the world’s best business managers and vice presidents, IT architects and research fellows, business planners and procurement specialists, senior admins and software developers. If you seek to sharply use information technology, I’d like to work with you to bulletproof your projects too.
Every year, I perform dozens of project planning and improvement consultations with organizations ranging from small startups to over-$100B-mega-enterprises. I bring a practiced, business-savvy, culturally-aware, technically-able set of eyes. I give you clear, honest, independent, and completely confidential feedback about how your project or plan is going, what its prospects and gating factors are, and what needs to be done to make it better. The consistent response from our clients is “Wow! That was excellent! We didn’t see that problem/issue/opportunity!” Which is exactly why they hire us–and why you should too.
When you’re ready to improve and bulletproof your projects, drop us a line. We’ll be happy to schedule a free, confidential initial consultation.
You may also enjoy some of my essays on project bulletproofing. They’re available here on illuminata.com, as well as on a column I write for CNET.com. Here’s “Looking for the blind side in a complex world” and “Protecting your blind side in IT.” Enjoy! And I hope to hear from you soon.
