Client Case Study
It may seem challenging to revitalize the Arctic Tundra. After all, what potential benefits could be derived from two million square kilometers of barren land? Avasant created opportunities for the government to offer citizen-centered programs and services in a highly decentralized geography. While the region is rich in natural resources, it lacked the infrastructure necessary to reap the benefits of their environment and modern technologies. After months of on-site experience and assessment, our IT and business transformation consultants developed Corporate Information Management and Communication Strategic Plans. Our recommendations focused on guiding the development and deployment of information management, enterprise architecture, telecommunications technologies and mobility infrastructures. These implementations defined their introduction into the modern world.
