Consultancy

The expert for sound advice on challenges at the intersection of business and IT

Your business objectives continue to guide new IT solutions

Ongoing digitization means that business objectives are, more than ever, leading the way for new IT solutions.

PNA offers a result-oriented and integrated vision for decision-making in the field of digitization issues. We analyze business processes, but also business rules, data definitions and decisions, and ensure a match between your goals, the necessary information and the various systems. The result is that you are better and faster able to identify the bottlenecks in your organization and generate the right solutions from there.

In addition to our specific services and solutions, we also offer more general consultancy services in the field of knowledge analysis and modelling, data management and model implementation.

Knowledge analysis

We are able to interview the subject matter experts in your organization about the knowledge in their heads in such a way that we can make it explicit and therefore widely applicable, for example by means of information systems. The cogNIAM® method guarantees the completeness and traceability of the secured knowledge. Our analysts are the world’s most experienced experts in Fact Based Modeling, BPMN 2.0 / SBVR and DMN analysis. With the help of cogNIAM®, possibly with the help of our knowledge tools, you are able to create and maintain insight into your knowledge capital.

Knowledge modeling

PNA makes the relationship visible between processes, rules, data and semantics in your organization. We have developed the knowledge molecule for this purpose, which is integrated in cogNIAM®. In this way, we not only model data and information, but also its meaning and the context in which this data and information is used. Models can then be used without human intervention in no code / low code platforms. In this way, truly model-based software comes within reach, which in turn can lead to higher quality against substantially lower costs.

Data management

You want to be able to manage on data: data must be reliable, correctable and accessible. However, data flows – both incoming and outgoing – have grown explosively and exponentially in recent years. Data management is crucial to cope with this growth. In our approach, based on DMBOK2, data management is, as it were, ingrained, if only because we highly value the meaning of data. Information about customers, for example, can very well be housed in multiple systems, but can also be used in very different ways by the various departments or employees in a company. It is therefore important to be able to start from the same definitions in order to generate meaningful reports.

Model implementation

The cooperation with PNA does not have to stop after we have developed a knowledge model together with you. We can also support you in designing and realizing the IT systems based on your knowledge models. Because those models are so rich, we are able to generate many system components. But often additional design and programming work will still have to be done. For us, functionality, architecture, investments and risks are central, of course with the help of an Agile (SAFE) approach. We guide you through acceptance tests, implementation and evaluation of the system. It is good for you as a client to know that we are at home in the platforms of leading suppliers. The solutions we create therefore fit into the environment of every organization.
