NEW Need a new system to manage your information? In this short video, Edan Puritt, co-founder of Askari Solutions Inc., reviews core Information Asset Management principles which apply across various business lines. When introducing a new system, Puritt advises you follow general IM principles when designing the architecture. You should only pay ONCE for the artifact, and then move it around your business and reuse it many times to amortize and reduce costs, assiduously avoiding the introduction of new redundancies.
Askari Solutions Inc. has been consistently growing since it started in December 2012. While I handle the admin side of Askari, recently I have also expanded to take on the role of Marketing Lead which has resulted in some challenges. In trying to determine a strategy forward, I recently applied one of the lessons I took from my time at Algonquin College doing my post-grad in Business Marketing. If I set up a case analysis of Askari Solutions to look at the different factors challenging the company, I could analytically determine the right fit for a solution.
Success or Failure? We think of that as a question between opposites. But in my experience, they are points on the same long continuum. With more IT projects than I care to—or even can—remember, I have learned the most about success through failure. Great Canadian successes such as the national railway or the Trans-Canada highway, are littered with the broken bodies, swamps, valleys, and mountains that were each failures at the time, but ultimately led to the successes they are today.
