IT Strategic Services
Is your strategy on solid ground?
We work at multiple levels based on our clients’ needs, whether defining the enterprise IT Strategy or focusing on a specific IT function. Our consultants bring experience based on an understanding of the business. They understand how effective technology trends and business needs work together to help develop an IT strategy that supports and enables the broader business goals. We work with clients to define application strategies, ERP strategies, infrastructure strategies, collaboration strategies, outsourcing strategies, and others. Successfully implementing an IT strategy requires a tailored organization and governance model. The model should address specific organizational requirements and the defined IT strategy. We help support IT strategy execution by designing the right organizational structure, governance model, decision-making processes, and KPIs. We perform client workshops and team-building exercises to implement the right structures to achieve a successful strategy. Read more

Benchmark Analysis improve your understanding of how efficiently different parts of the business are operating by comparing process performance to those of direct peers or competitors. Our methodology, approach and tools observe organizational differences and enables executives to discuss root causes to determine whether the variance is intentionally strategic or a performance gap.

What keeps an IT Director up at night?
Implementing and continuously improving an IT Service Management (ITSM) process approach based on the accepted best practices within the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) continues to provide an effective method for improving delivery, controlling cost, and capturing the data needed to improve further. Numerous Fortune 500 companies have leveraged ITIL best practices to deliver their ITSM programs. Companies are increasingly realizing the benefits of adopting the ITIL best practices. However, implementing ITIL best practices is not a one-size-fits-all solution to an enterprise, but rather is a starting point for reaching potential benefits. The benefits depend largely on existing systems, and a carefully planned business case and deployment approach which goes beyond the processes and tools to include team training, communication, and effectiveness.
