IT Strategy and Vision
Companies often approach us because their IT seems aimless. It’s unclear how it relates to their business strategy and how it helps meet their business objectives. The big opportunities to really use IT to make a difference never get turned into a clear vision and plan.
IT may be stuck in the last decade and opportunities to innovate using things like AI, mobile apps, data analytics don’t get onto the agenda.
An IT strategy as part of your business strategy
Companies that have a clear business strategy need an IT strategy to match. Each function of an ambitious business needs clear direction and someone to own this. Whether it’s expanding your digital presence to improve your customer’s experience, boost sales or improve loyalty; or taking radical action to streamline your processes using new systems … companies need an experienced, competent and confident IT leader on the senior team to understand the business strategy and turn this into an IT vision and strategy.
Get IT Innovation Off the Ground
Many CEOs we meet have a radical idea for technology-enabling their business but need a sensible experienced IT leader to make this happen (or to say honestly if it’s a bad idea!). We have worked with a number of organisations to transform their businesses through innovative use of IT that has significantly boosted their revenues or reduced their costs.
An IT strategy that Encompasses every Area of IT
An IT strategy needs to encompass digital, line of business applications, and IT infrastructure. Typically for mid-market businesses, one of our Principals can get to grips with the issues and create a simple strategy within a few days. We focus on creating a roadmap as a basis for planning and action, rather than just having a document that sits on a shelf gathering dust.
