Business case

Strategic Information System

The first client to hire Ivens Consult Strategic Information System product was Sinaval (Brazilian National Shipyards Syndicate), in November, 2002. The system was ready in March, 2003, after debates and changes, in time to be presented to the newly elected government officials, on president Lula federal administration staff. Sinaval used the product, presentations and documents data base, in government relations, events and seminars, and benefited from presenting, on all forums, structured and consistent views, for three years. In April, 2006, Sinaval hired an update. The mini-CD model for Strategic Information content already has its legend on the pantheon of myths of power meetings. As the tale goes, in April, 2003, the Ministry of Transportation audience was about to start, all maritime business leaders had arm pits full of documents, thus enters Sinaval president, Ariovaldo Rocha, nothing on his hands, sits in front of the Minister and takes, from his suit breast pocket, the mini-CD with attractive design identification. The Minister surprised and intrigued, inserts the disc on his computer, and presentations and a 30 document library show up for navigation. Next, Abeam (Brazilian Supply Boat Operators Association) hires the product development in 2003, 2204, 2005 and the up date in 2006. The list below sum up some Strategic Information Systems hired out, several of them before Ivens Consult came to be. Some was produce during the service to Rio de Janeiro State Goverment Administration, others, as director of other PR agency. Since 1999, this concept was tested and evaluated, by friends and foes, and it is still out there:
