We help clients develop IT strategies that are tightly aligned to business goals and corporate priorities, and to design organization and governance approaches to deliver the highest value.
Based on our global experience, input from several major corporations’ CIOs, and a global benchmark database, we have defined both what the objectives and criteria for an IT strategy should be, but also what supporting enablers like processes, organization, and governance should look like.. This gives us distinctive insight across all levers in how a CIO and CEO should think about the IT function’s strategy.
Our consultants bring a deep understanding of the client's industry, technology trends, and business needs to help develop an IT strategy that will support and enable the broader business goals. These strategies draw heavily on our experience in helping clients redesign IT functions such as application development, infrastructure, sourcing, or lean IT, and on our knowledge of business strategy and sector dynamics.
Successfully implementing an IT strategy requires an organization and governance model tailored to the IT strategy. We help support IT strategy execution by designing the right models, decision-making processes, incentives, and metrics.
Our approach to IT strategy starts with the business strategy.
We first assess the current state of IT to understand where its strengths and weaknesses lie. With strategic priorities in mind, we then lay out a roadmap to bring IT to its optimal future state. That generally means developing a short-term plan to improve capabilities, such as processes and talent, as well as a longer-term plan to reshape technology solutions, including infrastructure, applications and data.
Finally, we look practically at how an organization can achieve its goals, taking budget constraints and competing investment priorities into account.
