Avoiding or Recovering from Technology Ragnarok
Restoring Order to Your Systems so that People Can Achieve More
In Norse mythology, Ginnungagap indicated that bottomless abyss of absolute chaos into which the entire cosmos would collapse after Ragnarok, the “twilight of the Gods.” For some organizations, Ragnarok may already be here. Or at least it feels like it is for their technological systems. Systems are multiplying chaotically, data is growing exponentially, users are befuddled, management is frustrated. Bringing order to technological chaos becomes imperative. As Peter Drucker reminds us, “there is a point of complexity beyond which a business is no longer manageable.” If your organization feels like it is going through its own private Ragnarok, give KW Works a call. We can restore order to your technological systems and get your organization back to operating at peak efficiency.
