We aim to help our clients thrive by applying enterprise technologies that power business growth and success. This all starts with a thorough IT assessment, which allows us to:

  • Get a clear picture of the status quo of each client’s technology infrastructure

  • Show how technology can be harnessed to grow your business’ revenue, save costs, ensure compliance, streamline operations or reduce risk.

Our approach to IT assessments is broad, detailed, and designed to uncover the full potential of your technology infrastructure.

Let's dive into how we use IT assessments to set up a partnership for success:

Holistic evaluation: Beyond just technology

When we begin an IT assessment, our perspective is broad and all-encompassing. We understand that technology does not operate in a vacuum. Our assessment process scrutinizes not only the technology itself but also how it serves your operations and your users.

Our method combines questionnaires, one-on-one sessions, department meetings, site visits, and documentation reviews. By exploring all avenues, we gather comprehensive data. We share our draft findings for review, allowing for a collaborative process that welcomes our client’s input at every stage.

Throughout our discovery phase, we focus on several crucial areas to ensure a thorough understanding of your technology environment:

  • IT solutions, architectures and infrastructure currently deployed

  • Integrations between various systems

  • IT standards and policies

  • End-users - their needs and challenges

  • Security - understanding your current security posture

What’s in our IT assessments?

Our objectives are clear-cut and aimed at maximizing your technological investments:

  • Scope assessment: We gauge the depth, breadth, potential, and cost-effectiveness of your information technology landscape.

  • Issue Identification: Pinpointing challenges that hinder optimal deployment and usage of technology.

  • SWOT analysis: A comprehensive look at the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats within your tech environment.

  • Strategic planning: Establishing a technology plan that prioritizes optimization areas, complete with cost assessments and detailed timelines.

  • Architecture recommendations: Providing insightful architecture diagrams and documentation to guide future developments.
