Having the right information available at any moment and any location is a prerequisite for success. The IT and Information Management (IT/IM) Department at A.Hak contributes to this facet with up-to-date and properly secured systems. These systems also enable A.Hak to swiftly exchange information with external partners, as was proven during the development of the Digital Collaborative Platform of the national grid operators.

DIGITAL COLLABORATIVE PLATFORM

‘Bringing IT to your doorstep’ E

ver since he was appointed as the manager of the corporate IT/IM Department in 2012, Catrinus van der Leest has worked on modernising the IT systems at A.Hak. He explains: ‘Our strategy is focused on fulfilling the information need of the A.Hak staff members with as little individual software systems as possible. Our foundation is a predetermined primary architecture that helps us maintain clear overviews and prevent an uncontrolled growth of overlapping and superfluous systems. This help us to save costs, but more importantly it becomes easier to interconnect software solutions and enable them to communicate with one another.’

ISO 27001 CERTIFIED

As a company with branch offices in a multitude of countries, a great deal of communication takes place online. Securing sensitive information is our very first requirement. ‘And that’s what we do’, explains Project Manager and Process Consultant Arjan Ribberink. ‘Each aspect of our information security meets stringent criteria. Since last year, our ISO 27001 certification is testimony of that fact. We take pride in obtaining this certificate, while it must be pleasant for our customers to know that the digital infrastructure for our corporate processes and its associated IT environment is on lockdown and works excellently. Our strategy of maintaining an interconnected network with modern systems that can be easily linked to both internal and external systems, this also facilitates collaborations with external partners.’
