Your IT strategy is part of your overall business strategy, but it specifically deals with how your organization uses technology in IT and business processes. Your IT strategic plan outlines your business IT needs — from cutting IT costs to adopting the latest best practices and improving IT support response times. This includes specific actions you can take to reach your IT strategy goals. IT strategy consultants can help you create a comprehensive roadmap that allows your business to reach the goals you’ve set out in your business plan.


IT budgeting goes hand in hand with strategic IT planning. But trying to build a technology budget without a clear understanding of what your company needs is frustrating. Our IT consultants work with you to develop a realistic IT budget that incorporates both your own assets and resources, plus the projected costs of the new technology that will deliver the most value to your organization and help you reach your business goals.


As your business grows it’s important to make sure that the technology you have in place is right for the job. You need a way to determine how well your current technology is performing and where it may be coming up short. With an information technology assessment, you’ll receive detailed insight into how your technology is serving you today as well as a roadmap for improving those tools in the future. A successful Information Technology Assessment (“ITA”) evaluates your people, your processes, and your technology, along with how these three elements all interact. We identify your technology strengths as well as your risks and give you the information you need to create a road map for future initiatives.


IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC)

GRC refers to a strategy for managing an organization’s overall governance, enterprise risk management, and compliance with regulations. Our cybersecurity services team can help you create a well-planned governance, risk, and compliance strategy, which includes creating, auditing, and managing a clear framework that aligns your IT and business strategies.


The future of business IT is a departure from data and applications living on premises to them living in “the cloud” to reduce costs, increase security, and build redundancy. Our IT consultancy helps you develop the right cloud migration strategy, including having the right cloud security in place. We take you through the pros and cons, help you evaluate cloud providers, calculate costs, and then provide you with a proposal. With a thoughtful plan migrating to the cloud is a simple process.


Business interruptions happen, and a continuity and disaster recovery plans are vital to keep your company up and running through whatever crisis you might face. We formulate a BC/DR plan that encompasses how employees communicate in a crisis, where they go to find the information they need, and how they can access the tools and processes they need to perform their jobs in any situation.


Business growth requires a balance of efficiency, collaboration, and speed. The “off the shelf” software that you rely on to run your business was designed on a one size fits all basis. Often this results in gaps that your staff must work around. Whatever your needs may be our expert IT consulting team can build a custom application that delivers exactly what you want.
