Our Reengineered Process

ICTA has executed novel projects which has ensured that operations and core government business functions are not severely impacted by unplanned incidents. We have restructured our operations using technology to include Business Continuity planning and execution as a proactive step to mitigate unplanned incidences in our organizational process. By this we would achieve the restoration of normal business processes and activities in a set amount of time, with define amount of data loss acceptable to the business, and then communicate critical information to organizational stakeholders during and following incidents. Our distinctiveness lies in the inclusion of technology and our unique operational model.
