Many small organizations face unique IT challenges, and nowhere is this more true than in Alaska. Limited funding and resources result in under-staffed tech departments that struggle to keep up, fixing problems as they occur, juggling aging and incompatible equipment, and coping with the inefficiencies of old hardware. These situations discourage preventive maintenance, delay research into new solutions, and hinder future planning, often leading to avoidable staff frustrations.
A third-party IT analysis of an organization is an effective tool to evaluate their current infrastructure, and can help to position IT staff for success. When seeking a grant for funding of technology related infrastructure or upgrades, an IT analysis may be required as part of the application process.
Information Insights offers IT analysis services tailored to fit the needs of small organizations. Our IT Consultants know the technology constraints and challenges in Alaska, and can help develop a roadmap to a stable and sustainable IT infrastructure. We work with organizations to find problem areas, research creative solutions, and provide a detailed analysis with recommendations for improvement.

Information Insights put a great deal of thought and work into this analysis and brought considerable expertise to the process. I look forward to discussing it with the Board and feel it can act as a blueprint for making some tough decisions.

The Lost Alaskans: Morningside Hospital History Project has received the Alaska Historical Society‘s 2011 Pathfinder Award. According to the Society’s website:
The Pathfinder Award is given to an individual or several individuals who have indexed or prepared guides to Alaska historical material that has not been accessible. The 2011 Pathfinder award goes to the Lost Alaskans: Morningside Hospital History Project, and its primary researchers Ellen Ganley, Meg Greene, Karen Perdue, Robin Renfroe, Niejse Steinkruger, Sally Mead, Deborah Smith, Marylou Elton, and Vivian Hamilton. This group has worked to uncover the documentary record of mental health care during the years in which Alaskans were institutionalized out of state at Morningside Hospital. Their work not only helps reveal the past, but has had an impact on the lives of living family members seeking to understand what happened to their relatives.

Information Insights and Agnew::Beck worked with the Student Advisory Board for the Anchorage School District to gather input on upcoming budget cuts from the people who may be impacted most – the students themselves. Senior consultant Cady Lister was impressed by the serious reflection the students gave the issue when asked what the district should do. “It was a great meeting,” said Lister. “We had 51 engaged, intelligent, and thoughtful middle and high schoolers thinking about what they value in education, what being educated means, as well as ways to fill the budget shortfall.”
