We help the IT function address the issues related to both risk and performance improvement.
IT Advisory Services: helping IT deliver improved business performance
Wherever technology is used in an organisation it should have a positive impact – it should support businesses to delight customers, manage operations effectively, and empower people, all as effectively as possible. But reality often falls significantly short of these expectations because 'getting technology right' is not easy.
We work with business and technology leaders in both commercial and public sector organisations to provide independent technology and business advice to help our clients to:
- make the most of the data, digital assets, technology and people
- reduce acquisition, implementation and operating costs
- transform the way that technology supports their organisation to make a 'step change' in business performance and return on investment
- design and deliver successful technology projects and programmes
- recover existing projects and programmes that have lost their way.
We help set the blueprint and plan that will guide how our clients'organisations use and manage technology to support the delivery of business strategy.
Technology Programme Delivery
We provide expertise and guidance on how to structure and deliver major programmes of business change, enabled by technology. We assist in design and acceptance of technology solutions as well as sourcing the right application and integrator for our clients' requirements.
We focus on the activities required to source and procure technologies and services to deliver complex technology-enabled transformation programmes – to drive down cost and reduce delivery risk.
We help clients re-architect their technology to align better with business strategy and deliver a higher return on investment in IT; and we help clients address more tactical solution design issues.
