Strategic Technology Assessment
To identify general technology needs and opportunities for improvement in organizational effectiveness, our experts work closely with you to understand your current IT infrastructure. We may also perform a Strategic Technology Assessment that can include any combination of the following deliverables.
Technology Vision and Goals – How technology, particularly emerging technology, can enhance your business strategy/mission and goals for more effective service delivery and organizational efficiency.
Basic Operational Recommendations – A general review of operational procedures and processes including an emphasis on “quick-hits,” which require smaller investments but result in cost savings.
Staffing Skill-set Assessment – What skill sets should your staff have to effectively manage technology and do the individuals in place have those skills? As part of the staffing skill assessment, an in-sourcing vs. service-based assessment can be completed to determine the appropriate balance of internal vs. external resources.
Strategic Investments – Technology that focuses on the organizational mission. A cost benefit analysis is conducted on the multiple options for each potential investment across the IT project portfolio and plan.
Timeline and Budget Scenarios – Multiple budget summary options may be presented based on the scope of the assessment.
Evaluation Metrics – An outline for determining the scope and scale of effectiveness in the recommended technology implementation, which allows for improved management of the IT portfolio.
