Our Approach

At Certainest, strong experienced project management is seen as essential from the very beginning a project is started.  From defining the business case through to establishing the way of working.  From building the team to managing the work and issues.  From assuring quality in the deliveries to managing the stakeholders.

We believe an experienced IT Architect is vital for a project, development or change within IT of any kind. The role applies IT resources to meet specific business requirements to full fill the business needs of a company

Aside from being well run and governed by sensible and solid architectural principles a project must be rooted in an understanding of business needs and circumstances. Business Analysis is the backbone of a successful project.
