Strategy and Roadmaps
You have a destination in mind for your business. Together, we chart a course that gets you from where you are now to where you want to be.
Proven strategies. Objective expertise. Trusted partners.
We begin every project with a roadmap, working alongside your team to chart a course to your current business challenges and future aspirations. We look out 12 to 36 months, plotting your business goals and aligning them with technology goals. It’s a highly collaborative, iterative process. We employ the SWOT business principle — strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats — for each IT area then step back and look at the big picture. It’s an exercise we’ve gone through many times with clients of different sizes operating in many different industries.
Along the way, we offer objective, expert advice that outlines the best technology options available to you. At the end of this in-depth process, you have an actionable plan shaped by your business philosophy and priorities, as well as your budget. It’s based on proven strategies, but the roadmap is customized specifically to your needs.
Procurement and Maintenance
We help you evaluate existing technology assets and manage their lifecycles, so you only purchase what benefits your business.
Business alignment. Lifecycle planning.
New technology is only valuable if it gets you closer to your business goals. We guide clients through a methodical procurement process that starts with business objectives, rather than an IT shopping list.
We delve into what you want to accomplish; talk to users about their challenges; assess existing technology hardware, software and services; and offer objective advice on how to build upon existing IT infrastructure to improve your business.
The process begins with a strategic review of your business and technical requirements. Then we inventory your existing technology assets and look for opportunities to consolidate. We evaluate warranties and consider how to streamline maintenance and renewals — both to simplify asset management and save money. This is part of an ongoing plan for tracking your IT asset life cycles.
Together, we consider any new technology that can further your business goals. It’s an objective, collaborative vendor-selection process. We work alongside you to offer expert guidance and insights. But you make the final decision. After the purchase, we help ensure you’re getting the most from vendors’ maintenance and service contracts.
The bottom line: We’re an IT company focused on business fundamentals, and we show you how to get the maximum value from your technology investments.
