Rapid Algorithmic IT Healthcheck (RAITH™) Overview
Chordia Consulting's Rapid Algorithmic IT Healthcheck (RAITH) service offers an objective, high-level diagnostic analysis of your IT organization. Based on answers you provide to a range of carefully crafted questions, the sophisticated algorithms within our RITE analytics tool will highlight opportunities for improvement across the whole spectrum of IT activities. Chordia Consulting is pleased to now be able to offer the RAITH service for worldwide purchase and delivery completely online. (RAITH In-Depth will is available for more detailed analysis of specific areas).
The RAITH standard service features a portfolio of 30 diagnostic questions grouped into 10 areas. These questions cover a wide range of situations that may be relevant to your IT organization. Each of these questions is framed as a possible problem or ‘symptom’ that may exist and that you will perhaps recognize. There are no right or wrong answers – we’d just like you to present an honest picture of your current IT environment as it is right now. Your pattern of answers will be specific to your organization and should accurately reflect the unique IT situations that exist within your enterprise. You may wish to invite subject matter experts in your organization to assist in answering the survey questions.
An In-Depth version of RAITH is available. It draws from RAITH's portfolio of over 400 questions to provide a more detailed analysis of many of today's important IT areas. Contact Chordia Consulting to learn more.

As its name suggests, the purpose of the Rapid Algorithmic IT Healthcheck is not to provide detailed, client-specific answers to all questions related to IT improvement – that would require a much more lengthy and in-depth consulting engagement. However, based on our structured and objective analysis, it will clearly identify areas where IT activities could and should be improved, the relative level and priority of improvement required, and what could be done to move in the right direction.
We hope you find it a useful and effective next step in your IT improvement program.
