At Astute Informatics, we have launched our own cloud-based analytics solution that can be readily consumed via mobile devices or web/desktop workstations. Acuity is a consolidated suite of proprietary technologies that enable business intelligence reporting and advanced analytics, data management and data virtualisation applications. The strength of the Acuity Intelligence Platform is that minimal bespoke development has been incorporated into our solution, with the value of our intellectual property derived from our very own Astute-consultant’s expertise to integrate and deploy a range of solutions to address enterprise or specific business problems.
Acuity is readily compliant with the Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) which is the Federal Government framework and certification process that endorses mobile and/or cloud-based deployments/services for cyber security with Australian Governments.
Acuity allows our clients to purchase software and hardware products as services that are paid through a periodic subscription model (typically monthly) as opposed to a single one-off purchase of infrastructure from technology vendors. Under the Acuity subscription model, support and maintenance is included within the monthly subscription as well as any software/firmware patches or version updates. Because of this, the need for significant capital outlay is removed and the ongoing cost of maintenance and support are no longer required, nor is the requirement to engage specialist resources – meaning a lower total cost of ownership for our customers. This reclassification of expenditure means that no longer do our customers need to amortise and depreciate its software as a capital asset and can now simply consume that software capability through an operational expenditure-based solution.
The Acuity Intelligence Platform facilitates a streamlined ‘on-demand’ and ‘pay-as-you-go’ pricing model where our customers have the option to forgo the purchase of each of the featured vendor technologies and instead pay via a monthly subscription model. The key advantages of adopting this streamlined consumption model includes:
- No procurement of hardware and software
- No annual maintenance charges
- End-to-end support of each of the vendor products
It is also possible for our customers to procure each of the vendor technologies that make up the Acuity Intelligence Platform. If you would like to know more, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
