We have extensive experience of working with a broad range of organisations to develop and implement IT strategies. We envisage IT strategy development as the process of formulating a vision of how to incorporate computer technologies into all business processes in ways which maximises efficiency gains at best value cost, and then developing effective implementation plans. In developing an IT strategy for client organisations we typically work to create a roadmap that bridges the gap between existing IT systems and processes and the vision of how the organisation wants to use the power of Information Technology in future.
