IT Consultant Service
Information technology has developed in leaps and bounds in the past couple of years. A number of innovations have emerged that can significantly improve the way the ‘modern office’ works:
- The emergence of the ‘cloud computing’ model, reducing cost and enabling ‘anywhere working’.
- The availabilty of powerful collaboration tool sets such as Microsoft Offce 365.
- Adaptable server operating systems that are no longer the sole preserve of the corporates with deep pockets.
- Mobile devices that are usuable and with ‘apps’ that can connect you to your data effectively.
The modern business owner cannot be expected to be aware of all the possible I.T. solutions that are available and will best serve his/her enterprise.
That’s where we come in. Pennine IT Services makes a point of keeping abreast of the I.T. solutions marketplace so that we can advise our Clients of the options that are available to them. This is particularly the case with Microsoft solutions and we are proud to be a Microsoft partner.
So, whether you are in the position that you realise your existing I.T. is no longer serving the ever changing demands of your business, or you are starting a new business, we can advise you of your options and guide you towards implementing the most appropriate and cost-effective I.T. infrastructure.
I.T. Strategy Planning
It is our philosophy that in order to recommend a complete set of I.T. solutions, we need to understand how our Client wants their business to operate.
An effective way of achieving this is by undertaking an I.T. Strategy Review, linking the I.T. Strategy to your Business Plan.
By mapping out the Client’s business processes, desired day-to-day modes of operation and understanding the future vision of the Business, we put ourselves and our Client in a much stronger position to procure and implement the best and most appropriate I.T. architecture.
Typically, the steps for producing an IT Strategic Plan are:
- Clarify the business vision, mission and objectives.
- Identify business priorites
- Identify the business growth plan
- Establish key performance indicators
- Define business processes
- Revue current technology usage & shortfalls
- Construct strategy for replacement I.T. infrastructure
- Develop implementation and spend plans
The whole process is inclusive and undertaken in conjuction and reviewed in conjunction with the business owner and key staff.
