A few questions to help you assess your current information system paradigm.

If you find that your information system is application-centric and you would like to explore what it would mean to become data-centric, please contact us. Restoring sanity to enterprise information systems.

You may also want to read Dave McComb's book, 'The Data-Centric Revolution" to help shift from application-centric to data-centric and enable your organization to develop more efficient and successful Enterprise Information System.

If in the very rare case you that you are already data-centric contact me, I would love to use you as existence proof, and a case study, no charge. By an incredibly weird accident of scheduling, the first consulting assignment I ever had was with a firm called Trus Joist, in Boise Idaho. When I visited in 1977 they had already been routinely doing things that would not become mainstream for two more decades. These included: parametric product design (architects “designed” custom joists by supplying a small number of parameters, through mark sense on a fax machine!) parametric design (architects supplied parameters from the take-offs of their architectural designs) just in time manufacturing (all their plants had zero work in progress) total quality (their joists were built to 1/1000th inch precision) . So I understand that a small number of firms are always at the leading edge, and I know they are not always in the spotlight. So if you are: I’m here with a spotlight.

If you’re not, we’re here to help you get there as fast as possible.
