New Collaboration & Integration

Irish owned I.T. Alliance has established a Collaboration and Integration Practice due to the significant growth in data overload in today’s constant messaging environment. The Collaboration and Integration  Competency Centre will be headed up by Graham Quinn of I.T. Alliance who has 13 years’ technical knowledge in the IT industry.

Information Worker is a paperless solution that allows employees to share data much more easily by creating and accessing web portals. It enables organisations to gain better control over knowledge management and obtain more insight over their content. It runs on Microsoft technology and is called Sharepoint.

Graham Quinn explains, “There is major potential for Irish organisations to adopt Information Worker as it can significantly reduce the paper footprint. Documents are much more quickly retrieved in digital format. It can also break down information into more manageable tasks and allows for more effective searches online. We need to eliminate the days of searching for a document buried under a pile of paper.”

Information Worker is targeted both at larger companies within the public and financial sector but also aimed at SMEs. It can be integrated into any company’s back-office elements. Employees can access these web portals using a self service facility which saves time and also the expense of phoning call-centres.

Before joining I.T. Alliance in 2006 as Information Worker Principal, Graham worked as a solutions architect and technical advisor for Local Government for five years. During this period he focused on the design, development and implementation of Intranet and Internet solutions within the government space using the Microsoft Server product suites and Dot Net technologies. For the previous six years he was working with Digital/Compaq as a technical architect/senior software developer.

Graham holds a B.Sc (HONS) in Computing Science awarded by HETAC. Recently he helped IT Alliance gain the Information Worker Solutions Competency accreditation with Microsoft under their Gold Partnership.
