A roadmap may involve different levels and aspects of your organisation. Are you looking for advice to optimise your IT environment or do you want to evolve towards a completely new approach, such as a gradual migration to the cloud? What new infrastructure do you need and what support services would this require? What do you want to focus on with your own IT organisation?
The first step in drawing up your IT roadmap is assessing the existing situation. This gives you a complete overview of your IT environment and the aspects you can optimise. Here, the focus is on the elements that could make all the difference to your business.
We then translate your specific business needs into a number of important business drivers: business continuity, cost efficiency, quality, security and compliance. The TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) is also examined to see if optimisations are possible within your budget and the focus of your own IT organisation.
Finally, together we look at whether you have sufficient expertise in-house to implement the roadmap and at what pace you can proceed with this plan and convert it into the implementation of IT projects, taking into account your budget and your priorities.
Tailored to your budget
