IFS Consulting Services

Corning Data provides superior IFS consulting services with our staff of seasoned professionals.  Some of our IFS consulting services include the following:

Technical Consulting

Corning Data provides the full range of technical services to maintain and grow your IFS Applications installation to meet the needs of ever changing needs of your organization. Corning Data continues to provide our customers with the technical expertise and support that they require to meet their business’ technology goals and objectives.

Project Management

Successful Project Management requires clear, concise, and accurate communication between the customer and the service provider.  This is key to delivering a complex project on budget and on time. Our project methodology includes regularly scheduled project status meetings and executive steering committee meetings. Corning Data integrates our project management tools into our methodology and project plan.

Project documents can be organized in folders for easy identification and retrieval. This capability to categorize and centralize all project related documentation extends to project plans, issue logs, user documentation, operational scripts, test scenarios, etc.

Performance Tuning

With Corning Data, performance tuning of an ERP package begins before the servers are ordered. Our inside technical experts work directly with the IBM Competency Center in order to ensure the performance requirements of the solutions are met.

After the installation, Corning Data excels in performance tuning of the IFS Applications on any and all of the supported servers. Our experienced technicians are often called upon to revive and complete failed projects and implementations of larger firms.

Custom Software

Even with today’s full-function and highly configurable ERP software, development needs may arise.  At Corning Data, we promote Business Process Re-engineering and offer creative solutions to niche business issues when appropriate.  However, custom software development is sometimes required.  All of our developers are senior level programmers with many years of experience.  So, whether your need is for IFS Applications Customization using the IFS AQS standards, Oracle Data Base (stored procedures, functions, or triggers), IAL Development, or PL/SQL scripts for process automation (event driven notifications, data warehousing, or batch processes), CDS has the experienced developers needed to address your business requirements.

Business Process Improvement

As a single source provider of ERP software and services, Corning Data provides Business Process Improvement (BPI) and upgrade support to our customers. Corning Data consultants will meet with your software users to review your organizational structure, business flows, and reporting requirements in order to conduct a Business Process Review. During this thorough survey, every business process within each functional area required to run the business will be analyzed. Then, our team will identify areas of potential and significant business process improvement.

Application Consulting

Implementing ERP software in an effective, economical, and expeditious manner requires that Application Consultants possess industry experience and expert knowledge of the IFS Applications. The Corning Data team of Application Consultants is comprised of experienced professionals who understand your business goals and provide the talent, knowledge, and experience you will need to achieve your project’s goals.
