About CNI

We believe IT should be a profit centre

Do you want to transform your business?

How We Do It


If you are like most of our customers, you have a lot of systems that cost you a lot of money.
They are not integrated, in fact they are largely isolated.
Your users have multiple logins, they can’t work across multiple device types and there are many hours spent patching multiple and disparate systems. In our experience, most businesses currently view IT as a cost centre.

At CNI we are about moving IT from a cost centre to a profit centre, and we have the expertise and process to take you there.

Wouldn’t you like your IT to be a profit centre?

This is our vision at CNI, and it’s a journey we can take you on through 4 stages.


1st stage – ISOLATED

1st stage – ISOLATED

Do you have legacy systems, or systems that are about to go out of support? Do you have capacity issues that rely on significant capital expenditure to resolve? Do your users have >3 logins to access the systems they need to use each day?

Does patching take someone more than a few hours per month to keep your systems up to date? Do you have limited remote access? (Limited users, locations or devices) Is your Disaster Recovery solution untested, or only tested once per year or less?

Let’s start your journey by focusing on getting the right cost in your IT environment.
We move duplicated systems to the background and turn on the functionality in the systems that you have already paid for. By solving these problems we focus on getting the best bang for buck from your existing technology investment.

FOUNDATION – 2nd stage

FOUNDATION – 2nd stage

Are your maintenance costs rising, but your IT budget still has significant capital expenditure? Is reporting limited or available for only select users? Is most of your environment made up of physical/virtual servers, or Infrastructure-As-A-Service (IAAS)? Would you classify your IT strategy as limited or somewhat vague? Do most of your IT projects run for more than 6 months? Are most IT staff primarily involved in operations instead of business projects? When a new staff member begins, does it take more than a few hours until they can access everything they need?

It’s time to build on this foundation to find ways for IT to generate reactive revenue opportunities. There may be an opportunity to sell products via your website, or your customers accessing only their information in your existing systems in a way that is helpful for them.

I’m ready to build on the Foundations

3rd stage – COMMON

3rd stage – COMMON

Is your IT budget fairly predictable, but the business wants more for less? Is your reporting available for all users from any device, but you can’t predict what’s next from what you have now? Are most of your systems now Platform-As-A-Service(PaaS), not Software-As-A-Service(SaaS)? Do IT projects take more than a month?

It’s time to move IT from delivering reactive revenue opportunities to continually generating proactive revenue opportunities for your business. Your next step is to maximise the business potential of new technology to differentiate your business from your competition.

I’m ready to differentiate

CONNECTED – 4th stage

CONNECTED – 4th stage

All your users are identifying “What-If” based new revenue opportunities for your business, powered with machine learning.

Most systems are Software-As-A-Service(SaaS), which has the lowest operational cost.The IT budget is primarily an operational expenditure or invested in new initiatives with measured Return on Investment (ROI).

IT is a profit centre for your business, generating proactive revenue opportunities. This stage is the goal for all our customers, and what CNI believe is the real reason for technology.
