At this point our soma team shine, their depth of knowledge and broad experience means that most often the discovery process leading to your Project Plan and Implementation takes less time than you may think.
Once we have fully understood your direction and desired outcomes, we then develop and document a full plan.
Our planning process is typically interactive and very consultative. Transparency and effective communication ensures that plans both adapt and minimise any delays.
The final stage in our process brings both our analysis, research, insight and planning to life.
Your soma Project Design clearly reflects your vision and desired outcomes. In many cases the designs we produce provide a better outcome than those that were originally envisioned and will naturally flex as your business grows. Utilize our adaptable engagement options to consult around a solution and/or implementation.

soma IT Audit
Are you brave enough to uncover the truth about your business?
If you’re not – you should be.
You can’t conduct your own audit without having a conflict of interest.
An IT audit doesn’t simply summarise your environment, equipment and frameworks. It extends to processes that impact the ongoing performance of your IT systems as well as industry best practice, documentation supporting your business processes, security and disaster recovery protocols.
We all like to think that our Network’s are secure and issue free. The fact is that a lot of the time you cannot control changes within your Network. Technically speaking an Audit will provide insight into an organization’s culture, policies and procedures. Audit results will assist board and management by verifying internal controls such as operating effectiveness, risk mitigation controls, and compliance with any relevant laws or regulations.
