Mission statement


ATSP is based in Geraardsbergen and has been founded in 2003.


CEO of the company is Hans De Smet, who has a long term experience both on a technical level as on
project management level.


During his career, Mr.. De Smet has worked in various markets :

  • Industry and Electricity

  • Government

  • Finance

  • Automotive

As a consultant, he received different missions from his employers, but after analyzing the root cause for the problem he was called for, it became apparent that most companies were not able to match business needs with
the functionality of their ICT investments.


ICT people have a tendency to focus on technological needs, forgetting about business needs. This results in a non optimal investment policy, based on technological parameters. For instance, ICT people will include in their roadmap product upgrades or extensions of functionality. But who assesses that these investments are necessary ?
The business might have other demands, like capacity extensions or performance enhancements that are needed,
to ensure a perfect service to the customer.

On the other hand, the business might have unrealistic expectations of what technology can achieve. This is normal, since today's technology is evolving at a fast pace and requires a day to day follow up.


The art of the game is ensuring an optimal fine-tuning of business requirements and technological possibilities.
This can be achieved by

  • deploying the necessary technological tools to control and  measure your ICT environment, so analytical data can be provided to management

  • applying a methodology ensuring a 360 view on the business requirements.

Once both technological as business components and processes have been mapped, the business processes need to be translated into ICT requirements. This mapping can only be achieved by a person who has both an understanding of the business as of the technological possibilities and is able to apply the best fit methodology. This key knowledge is needed to make a good business case, where functionality, costs and profits are well balanced and based on a correct assessment of all involved components.

ATSP can train your people to use this methodology as well, so when ATSP steps out, your company has been empowered to balance business needs versus ICT investments.


Mr. De Smet has several concrete examples of how this methodology has helped companies to get more out of their investments in ICT. Feel free to contact ATSP to make an appointment.
