Bonafarm Group, with its three food industry and four agricultural member companies is one of the leading players of Hungary's agri-food sector.

A new, efficient and centralised IT structure has underpinned group operations. Stratis has provided expert project managers, working on strategic planning, sub-project management and the integration of sub-projects. The new, centralised architecture can be seen as the design and implementation of a greenfield, integrated IT system, resulting in the modern component systems reaching a higher quality and operational maturity level, due to the integration. Stratis's work has led to a nationwide, secure IT system portfolio, supporting group operations. The latest assignment was the conceptual planning of an intranet system serving the business with HR and process management functions.

In December 2013 we won the tender for making the comprehensive IT strategy of ELI-ALPS research institute, the Hungarian facility of the ELI international project. The project's aim is the establishment of research centre for studying the interaction between light and matter with ultrahigh intensity laser. The IT strategy - among others - covers the operation of the institute's scientific devices and it was crafted according to the criteria of handling and further processing the vast amount of data arising from the experimental measurements. The strategy also outlines the entire base of IT architecture, infrastructure, operation-supporting applications, organization and internal processes. Two, separate branches of IT functions were to be designed: general IT, providing basic IT services (computing capacity, data storage, data communication) and specialist IT, supporting the experimental and research work. The strategy defines a rather detailed vision for full-scale operations, to be reached in 2018. According to plan, the institute will start its limited-capacity operations in 2016, however this still demands full IT functionality.
