Precision and Pragmatism

The path we recommend to our clients must be feasible and the solutions we develop workable. This is a fundamental rule. To achieve this goal, we first fully structure every project, define milestones, and establish working modules, starting from the envisioned result and working backward. With this approach, we never lose sight of the final result no matter how complicated and detailed project activities become.

This enables us to bridge the gap between the business-related overall perspective and the numerous functional and technical details that so often seem to dominate the discussion within IT projects. Outstanding results require not only a certain level of intellect, but more importantly, diligence. We do not waste valuable time with endless analyses, nor do we support decisions based on the use of oversimplified schemes. We attach great deal of importance to the balance between polished concepts and basic common sense.

Established work objectives are final–no ifs, ands, or buts. However, that doesn’t mean that we suppress or simply ignore existing ambiguities. We accept dealing with uncertainty by working with hypotheses and thinking in terms of scenarios. At Platinion, we are the biggest critics of our own proposals, because this drives us to higher performance, and only by providing outstanding quality are we able to meet the high requirements of our clients.
