Many IT organisations struggle to maintain appropriate service levels as the organisation changes through mergers, acquisitions, and demergers. If unchecked,...
This rapid assessment of the health of your technology department focuses on quickly identifying areas of low efficiency, high cost and high risk.
A report is produced that outlines the findings, and suggests initiatives that could be undertaken to alleviate the most critical concerns.
Many organisations are frustrated with the efficiency of their IT organisation and are unable to prioritise initiatives to improve service levels, reduce risk & cost and increase agility and flexibility. This service is aimed at organisations that are looking to identify the “low hanging fruit” to kick off a program of IT improvement.
This assessment will provide you with an understanding of the health of your IT systems and organisation and will identify future project initiatives that should be undertaken as a priority to quickly capture cost savings or improve service levels to the business.
Due to the rapid nature of the assessment, the level of detail that can be obtained is restricted, in addition, while a regular technology audit will interview a number of staff to triangulate a conclusion, a rapid assessment will limit the interview process to a maximum of only 4 x 1 hour interviews capturing areas of concern without the requirement for cross checks.

Many organisations carry a significant IT failure risk without understanding either the potential or consequences of failure. Quantifying the latent risk, and taking steps to mitigate it not only makes good business sense, it often provides significant improvement in the efficiency and availability of “business as usual” IT service.
With the growing demands on IT departments it can be all too easy to focus on rapidly expanding capability and addressing the day-to-day challenges of running the technology. Properly aligning IT to direct business requirements, while improving the communication channels between IT and the business delivers massive efficiency and capability improvements.
Digital and Technology enablement is critical to all business's growth plans, and without appropriate IT foundations and planning your growth journey will be lost at sea. Aligning your technology planning to your business strategy and ensuring appropriate priority is given to future enablement projects makes a decisive difference to your business growth plans.

In most professions where information is asymmetric (i.e. the professional could take advantage of knowing more about the subject that they are advising you on) such as Lawyers and Doctors, the governing body can deregister the professional as stop them from practicing. This does not happen with Technology professionals so conflict of interest is a critical problem. Similarly when a technologist is heavily invested in one specific technology it often becomes their go-to solution (to a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail). By Maintaining our independence, Beyond Technology Consulting ensures that you are provided with unbiased and actionable advice that you can trust is free from conflict of interest and be assured that we are not monetising the advice that we provide you.
"Actionable Advice" is accessible, accurate and is advice that is provided in a language and manner that does not require technical qualifications to understand. We ensure that our recommendations are fit-for-purpose with an understanding of the context of your organisation to be both affordable and achievable.
We focus on understanding the core requirements of the business so that our advice is based on your requirements not the avaliable technology. This ensures that you don't end up with a solution looking for a problem and ensures that technology outcomes will grow with your business and flex with changes in the technology.

There are two key reasons that organisations don't undertake regular independent technology reviews. Firstly many boards and executive don't know that organisations like Beyond Technology Consulting exist and they are left thinking that the only options are IT Audits that are provided by the big accounting firms that don't provide any answers or actionable advice. The second reason is that they don't feel that they understand enough about IT to be able to get value from a review. Beyond Technology Consulting understands this and have designed our organisation to provide "Actionable Advice" that is accessible, accurate and provided in a language and manner that does not require technical qualifications to understand.
