We anticipate that 2015 will see next-gen security concerns, an increased focus on IT governance and emergence of the wireless carrier wars. Desk phones will begin to be phased out and organisations will focus on information as a corporate asset. Digital disruption will continue, with a focus on securing the device and empowering users.
No matter if your view of IT is as a cost centre or a potential strategic advantage, ensuring that you are receiving good value in your IT spend is critical. Reducing cost and improving service delivery through effective IT management and improved business alignment are key outcomes from undertaking an Independent IT review and health check.
- We will assess your internal IT service delivery or external IT service provider to consider if improved services or technology architectures could provide efficiency or capability improvements.
- We will review your technology roadmap, consider technology failure scenarios and insure that appropriate steps have been taken to mitigate those risks that are a real danger to the organisations wellbeing.
- We will assess your business requirements, consider best practice, new technology architectures and service delivery models and provide actionable advice on how to improve your IT service levels and reduce cost.
Beyond Technology has again had its best ever year. Thank you for your continued support and hope that 2013 is looking exciting and productive.
In thinking of the year ahead, I thought that I would share with you what the BTC Team has identified as the key trends and challenges that we feel our clients will be facing next year. Read More

Governance will focus on disaster recovery, preparing for security events rather than assuming they can be avoided. Advancements in 4G mobile technologies will see even more mobile users, with a focus on BYOD strategy over the corporate desktop.
Beyond Technology Consulting has already made a substantial donation to the victims of the disastrous Queensland floods, however the concern about the lessons learnt from the disaster remain. We are already hearing about Queensland business’s facing ruin, not due to the direct loss, but due to their inability to recovery core systems in a timely manner. Many organisations are only finding out now that their backup system has been ineffective, their recovery process is reliant on a staff member that can’t get to work or their 3rd party service provider has proactively entered receivership.

Executives across the country could feel the hair on the back of their necks stand on end over the weekend on hearing the complete financial, PR, operational and reputational disaster that besieged Virgin Blue after a catastrophic IT failure. While the press was interviewing distraught travellers across the country that were asking “Why didn’t they have a backup”, the dirty secret across many Australian organisations is that their IT recovery plans are either inadequate, or reliant on 3rdparty providers whom they do not have the skills to audit.
