DESCRIPTION

There’s no question that IT plays an essential role in business today. Virtually every company relies on technology to support business functions across the enterprise and enable growth. And the expectations for IT keep rising. Business users demand ever-higher levels of performance and availability. Company executives constantly ask their IT organizations to improve efficiency, cut costs and respond immediately to changing business needs. In addition, IT leadership is under increasing pressure to drive revenue growth. The effective and innovative use of IT to support business objectives has become a critical part of staying competitive.

 

Your IT organization is probably facing many of these challenges. Your business moves quickly to take advantage of market opportunities—acquiring companies, forging new alliances and bringing innovative offerings to market. To keep up, you need a flexible, integrated IT organization that is anchored to business objectives. A solid strategy can help you prioritize activities and stay on a defined path to success. It may be difficult and time-consuming, however, to devote valuable resources to developing or rethinking your strategy in house. Or you may not know where to start.

 

Our IT Assessment can help you evaluate your IT Investment, analyze your capabilities and potential, and develop a roadmap for improvement. Based on your company’s specific needs, we will perform an assessment that examines your existing IT Governance & Strategy, environment, including IT processes, organization and technology, to help identify gaps in performance, skills, capacity, security and technology. Our consultants— experienced in IT strategy engagements for companies of many sizes and industries worldwide—then offer recommendations for operational  improvement and help you create a roadmap with a prioritized list of initiatives.
