Technology advisory

Looks simple enough 

Technology advisory — sounds simple, right? But as we all know, the ubiquitous desktop PC is now being linked to everything from your supply chain to your global intranet to your knowledge management database. And that's not so simple.

Have you got a clear strategic direction which fuses your business strategy, technology strategy and operational needs? If not, you need to ask yourself some probing questions:

  • Which areas of the business need IT attention, and why?
  • How well is IT performing?
  • What are the values, risks, and tradeoffs of our proposed IT initiatives?
  • How does our overall portfolio of spending line up against the needs and direction of the overall business?
  • In a tight economy, which projects could be deferred, and why?
  • In a growth economy, where are we constrained?

Designed and delivered well, IT contributes to growth, profit and competitive advantage. Designed or implemented badly, it can burden and constrain an organisation.

Our Technology Advisory practice helps our clients to realise the business value from IT by addressing a range of challenges including:

  • CIO advisory services 
  • IT change and transformation 
  • IT sourcing and procurement
  • IT quality assurance

    IT Architects: Not Sacred Cows
    n ‘Making the most of our talent’ I talked about smarter use of outsourcing to maximise the value we get from our smart people. Here’s an example: IT architects.
