TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS FOR BUSINESS NEEDS
Founded in 2016 by senior IT Executive Michael Josephs, Divi Platinum's mission is to provide high level, strategic consulting to companies who need an experienced CIO but who are not ready to hire a full-time executive.
The name Divi Platinum comes from the Divi-Divi tree of Aruba which is a natural compass, always pointing in the same direction.
Divi Platinum's engagements have included Board and Technology Advisory participation with multiple organizations, including Sunwest Bank, the Medical Review Institute of America (MRIoA), Sage Centers, InfoGen-Service Prime and Captive Eight.
WHY DIVI PLATINUM
At Divi Platinum, any process begins with measurement. Many new clients do not have technology measurements in place at the outset of the engagements. Michael starts clients with a baseline so they can begin the process of continuous improvement that is monitorable and measurable.
IT and Business Alignment
Divi Platinum knows how to align technology investment with business success and
understands that innovation should only occur to help grow the business. In some cases, technology is being underutilized, and in others it's being used to no business purpose. Michael translates technology into real dollars and show the business impact of every technology in use on the business.
Hands-On People Management
A large part of a CIO’s job is managing people. Divi Platinum takes an active role in people management—from mentoring IT leadership to teaching staff best practices. Even with new technologies, people drive the business and getting the team on board and focused on the same goals is paramount to any company's success.
Knowing What Matters Most
Technology management is best approached in layers, with the most immediate needs addressed first Day one with a client, Michael asks the questions: What would close our doors today? From there, the team can move on to issues like increasing efficiency, delivering peak-business performance and then to technology innovation and planning
