Technology Strategy & Architecture
The Technology Strategy & Architecture (TS&A) practice advises clients in areas ranging from strategy development to the implementation of defined tactical responses to help realize business value and service excellence from their IT investments.
We excel at helping companies assess their IT and business landscapes to develop technology strategies that address issues ranging from system replacement to full IT transformation. Our experience enables us to help clients think through tactical issues while also considering the bigger-picture potential impacts to the overall organization.
The TS&A practice brings deep knowledge and experience in technology advisory, infrastructure planning and management, enterprise architecture, technology innovation and IT operational optimization. This spectrum of technology skills enables us to deliver a breadth of services including IT roadmap and strategy development, data center/infrastructure planning and consolidation, innovative technology solution development, business and technology architecture planning and design, ITIL alignment and IT operational transformation.
Our advisory services and solutions enable clients to maximize both the value derived from their IT capital investments (e.g., IT strategy and portfolio management, innovation, architecture and infrastructure) and the efficiency and effectiveness of IT operations (e.g., IT organization design, IT process and service delivery optimization and IT cost reduction).
Our Core Capabilities
IT strategy and effectiveness
Assist clients in designing their IT strategies to support their business goals in areas such as designing practical IT architectures, technology platforms, operating models and plans to efficiently deliver required business and technical capabilities.
Deliver a comprehensive enterprise architecture blueprint to support current and future business models, and establish supporting processes required to effectively define and deliver IT capabilities within an organization in a cost-effective manner.
Leverage and apply emerging technologies (e.g., multi-sensory networks, pervasive computing, next-generation Internet, community tools, etc.) to business needs and enable a sustainable edge-out, break-out or technologically-disruptive change to increase shareholder value.
Review, assess, control and optimize IT operations, bringing a solid understanding of the full spectrum of operations sub-areas such as service catalog management, service level management, security, operational metrics and operational governance.
Data center, infrastructure & internetworking
Design infrastructure, network and facilities (e.g. data centers) and develop processes to cost-effectively support business and technology requirements while considering all available sourcing options like cloud computing, other Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) and green technology options.
Few companies address these areas all at once, so we help clients prioritize their areas of focus based on their organization’s individual goals and circumstances. An effective IT strategy and alignment process can help companies:
- Enable key business strategies through technology
- Improve the business value of IT investments
- Optimize and transform infrastructure, data centers and networks
- Generate competitive advantage through technology
- Encourage innovation and the use of disruptive technologies
- Improve performance and reduce risk through improved IT processes, skills and organizational focus
At Deloitte, we understand our clients’ businesses – not just their IT environments. We have access to a broad range of capabilities across consulting, financial advisory services, tax and risk management worldwide. Our experience allows us to offer an integrated approach to service delivery, so we can better help IT organizations deliver more value across their entire business.
