Consulting Services

Technology should be used as an enabler for business. Although we often hear that customers with internal IT teams rarely have the time to keep up with the latest technologies, best practices and solutions that can help their businesses become more efficient and effective.

This issue is also becoming more prevalent the smaller an organisation is, as resources are often time poor and are busy “keeping the lights on” rather than adding value back into the business.

Therefore, it is important for businesses to engage external parties to collaborate and consult in various areas of technology. Often the cost of a consultant can be offset by the cost savings, productivity gains and efficiencies that the solutions they recommend can generate for a business.

ICT Roadmap Design & Strategy

ICT Roadmaps allow businesses to align their business strategy with their ICT environment.

This will ensure technology is used as an enabler to allow a business to achieve its goals.

An effective ICT Strategy should include:

  • Vendor Selection Criteria

  • Understand the different roles and departments within an organisation

  • Cover all aspects of IT

IT Budgeting

Budgeting is the basis for all business success and budgeting for IT is no different.

An IT budget should be used in conjunction with a well thought out IT strategy.

This should allow businesses to:

  • Optimise IT expenditure in areas that need it most

  • Provide a schedule and plan for IT priority projects

  • Improve your ROI on IT solutions

IT Auditing & Architectural Design

IT solutions are often implemented and then forgotten about until its time for the next refresh.

Without IT auditing your IT team will continually be reactive to the needs of the business rather than proactive.

With the ever-changing nature of IT, it is important to continually audit and review your existing solutions to ensure its still aligned to the needs of your business and industry best practices.

IT Policies & Procedures

It is important for all businesses to have defined IT policies and procedures which assist an organisation in establishing guidelines on how Information Technology is to be utilised and handled.

Policies & Procedures also form an important part of compliance with the Australian Privacy Act and provide customers confidence that they are working with a business that will handle their data in the correct manner.
