Consulting Description

The IT consulting engagement will move through several phases. Every organization is unique, including its IT needs, capabilities, and objectives. As a provider, we do not offer canned services; every engagement is custom designed to meet the organization’s specific requirements and goals. However, most engagements do follow a similar process that is described below

1 – Appraisal and Planning

During this stage, the current state and desired state of IT performance, security, or other areas that are the focus of the engagement are assessed, and a course for moving from the current state to the desired state is determined. This defines the scope of the consultancy agreement, and clearly defines the responsibility of the Client and responsibility of the Provider during the engagement.

2 – Objectives and Schedule

Once ultimate goals are determined then intermediate objectives and the timeline for reaching them are established.

3 – Execution and Metrics

Activities to reach objectives and goals are defined and carried out, including metrics to gauge the success of particular activities in reaching the goal or goals.

The consultancy engagement services can involve, but not limited to:

• Specialty: Apple into the workplace integration (Mac and Device Integration)
• BYOD strategies
• Strategy Development
• Advising and overseeing activities to improve effectiveness and efficiency
• Present industry best practices
• Software planning
• Hardware/ software integration
• Design and development services

4 – Review and Closure

At the end of the engagement term, the success of the engagement will be reviewed and any final sign-off completed. This will include recommendations for future direction for the organization’s IT development and improvement.
