RESCUING DIGITAL SYSTEMS AND PROJECTS


Digital systems often fail to live up to their promises and can turn into disasters. We rescue digital/IT systems and projects gone wrong. We deliver smart and resilient systems that work well and transform daily lives for the better.

We have a proven track record in resolving crises and implementing effective digital systems. We are experts in getting the most value out of technology, while minimizing risks, within constraints such as money, time, and resources.

Our mission is to empower people and organizations to tackle and solve their digital challenges. We work for business owners and leaders of organizations of all sizes.

We are an independent expert firm. We do not resell any products or services.

We are based in San Antonio, Texas and travel in North America for our clients. We work in English, French, and German.

PROBLEMS WE SOLVE


We rescue situations such as:
  • A failing digital product development.
  • A digital system dragging down the business (obsolete, prone to disruptions, lacking functionalities, too complex, too slow, wasting time, etc).
  • An ERP implementation gone wrong.
  • Insecure data and system that experienced cyber breaches or fail to meet requirements (e.g. NIST 800-171, CMMC).
  • Exploding vendor and licensing costs.
  • Automation/AI systems that don’t save time and money.

ADDRESSING THE ROOT CAUSE OF PROBLEMS


Technology is a means, not an end. It is a capability multiplier. With the right approach, it is a game changer that expands existing capabilities and creates great user experience, while saving time and money.

Yet, these benefits remain elusive to many people and organizations. We help remedy three major challenge areas related to digital systems and projects:

What are you trying to accomplish?
Lack of clarity about which capabilities technology should serve and which strategic outcomes it should help achieve.
What can/cannot be done?
Insufficient knowledge of available technologies and products in order to select suitable options and make the right trade-offs.
How to implement well?
Poor stakeholder management, poor planning, poor product/vendor choices, the wrong people in the wrong jobs, poor implementation management.

We rescue digital systems and projects using our proven five-step process:

CLIENT FEEDBACK

We have used the BLUSPHINX custom system since June 2019 and we are very satisfied with it. The time to perform tedious tasks has been significantly reduced, freeing up my employees’ time to focus on higher-value tasks. The BLUSPHINX team is reliable and efficient, and doesn’t hesitate to roll up their sleeves. I can trust them and results are delivered as promised.

My research group at MIT had obtained a sizable contract. I found Thomas Dillig to be a model collaborator. His ability to work productively with the team and to communicate sophisticated technical concepts quickly and efficiently contributed greatly to our ability to execute on the contract. In large part because of Dr. Dillig’s participation, the project was a success.

Aurelie and Thomas possess the rare quality of perfectly mastering the technical aspects of complex information systems and at the same time being able to pinpoint the key security issues and challenges related to their use, at all levels of organizations. This includes top decision makers, military leaders, CEOs, members of Executive Committees, as well as experts across business functions, operational teams, and end-users.

Aurelie Beaumel made significant contributions to the results of a working group in charge of the study of resilience. She distinguished herself with her dedication, ability to explain concepts clearly, analytical skills, and her wide range of knowledge. She knows how to interact effectively with officers and experts of diverse backgrounds. I recommend her without hesitation to anyone who needs to define long-term strategies and solve complex problems related to technology, organizations, and people.
