Operations management

Development, implementation and controlling are processes that increase a business's value creation. These factors are growing in importance for successful, future-oriented businesses.


Our customers have worked together closely with PTA to come up with solutions to these issues, with a positive and lasting impact on their companies.


The recent increase in supervisory regulations for banks demand rapid action because the time frame for implementation is often very short. This is not set to change in the future, either. On the contrary: it is to be expected that reporting criteria will continue to expand.


The use of every larger hardware units is an effective way to get to grips with the growing scope of data volumes. Another, often more cost-effective and yet no less efficient way is to perfect the infrastructure of the systems and applications that are in use and to make the most of the present opportunities.


This starts with such apparently simple steps as implementing interfaces, and stretches through to reorganizing complex, business-critical applications.

Operations (internal)

Improving the internal efficiency of business processes, monitoring and processing requirements and quality assurance all take up more and more space.


Increasing capacity with the available resources up to "industrial" mass production requires secure and efficient data processing. Frequently, this can be done by adapting the IT systems to improve performance.

Even minor changes in this area can have a negative impact on business processes and therefore have to be investigated carefully in advance.
