Enterprise systems are the backbone of organizations, but their extraordinary complexity can challenge IT teams without expertise in the disciplined engineering approach needed for success. At Quoin, we have practical experience with system architecture, re-engineering, quality improvement, and system integration in support of Fortune 100 and Global 500 organizations.
Quoin delivers pragmatic guidance and hands-on assistance for organizations that must ensure secure, robust, and performant systems. Our work encompasses the full scope of enterprise systems – package applications, web applications, legacy databases, and devices such as scanners. Our senior technologies and project teams use a disciplined approach for identifying and fixing operational vulnerabilities.
Security and robustness require a comprehensive understanding of a system – evaluating how the system was implemented to its use introduction. A Quoin project team uses a methodology based on the following principles.

This is rarely the case since the incentive is to minimize support calls which usually results in a permissive configuration.
The quality of a system similarly depends on a comprehensive approach including the development process and the resulting code. Our approach uses the following principles.
Performance is seldomly driven by a single root cause – diagnosing and fixing poor performance requires methodical analysis and strategy for remediation. Our approach uses the following principles.
