Welcome to Acora’s WordPress page, where you will find news and posts based on the company.
Acora is an IT services provider, with expertise in advisory services, IT outsourcing and business applications. It has been operating since 1986, and has grown year on year, now employing around 175 IT professionals across three sites.
This company has achieved three ISO standards, relating to delivering managed services, best practice for an information security management system and quality management systems. It has also achieved a British Standard for business continuity management. Acora’s IT advisory services encompass IT strategy, IT governance and application transformation.
IT strategy consultancy involves ascertaining the client’s business objectives and then ensuring that they have the necessary IT functions in place to support their plans. As the rate of change within the IT industry is ever accelerating, Acora recognises that all IT strategies need to be agile and flexible so that they can quickly be updated in line with new developments.
The unique Triple-A agile approach has been developed to get results more quickly, so that clients can immediately have confidence that the strategy is paying off. Effort is concentrated on areas which can provide maximum value.
In the area of IT governance, Acora helps clients to establish sound IT practices which improve service levels and ensures that its IT assets are used to best advantage. It uses a practical IT governance framework, which leads to effective and sustainable IT governance.
Application transformation is the art of transitioning from an old IT application to a new one – Acora provides expert guidance in this, applying its extensive experience to help organisations that wish to renew or replace mission critical business applications. It works with clients so that changes of application become strategic and proactive rather than tactical and reactive.
The company also takes its corporate responsibilities seriously, and regularly organises fund raising days to support a diverse range of charities. Good causes which they have supported include Children in Need, Alzheimer’s’ research and the British Heart Foundation. Events arranged for 2015 include a tea party arranged in support of Marie Curie, and a team from Acora is taking on the Three Peaks Challenge.
