TSI works with dozens of leadership teams to answer several key questions in the broad area of IT Technology Strategy and Organizational Alignment. Many of our clients wrestle with issues such as:
- What strategies are being pursued by the business side and how should the use of technology align and enable the business strategies?
- What are the risks to change as well as to remain status quo?
IT Organization Structure
- What role should IT play to enable our organizational strategy? How should IT be governed and measured?
- Will IT yield more value in a centralized, decentralized or shared services model?
- To whom should IT report?
IT Value and Cost Bench-Marking
- How do our IT costs compare with others in and outside of our industry?
- What tangible value is IT delivering?
IT – Technical Infrastructure
- What technologies are in place today?
- How well are our needs being met?
- Given the assortment of disparate technologies in place, what technology strategies and tactics should be pursued to improve the value of the investment in technology?
- What technology governance, organization structure/roles and processes should be changed to address the “People, Process and Technology” elements holistically?
- What BCP/DRP, ePMO, software development and other processes and controls are needed?
TSI takes a unique approach by understanding an organization’s business strategy and business context as a precursor to determining how to establish an improved technology foundation upon which the organization can grow. Often, projects of this nature are part assessment and part technology strategy planning.
In both cases, TSI takes a vendor agnostic approach to projects that will ultimately enable an organization to extract information from dozens, if not hundreds of disparate systems and volumes of data, often reducing their costs of maintenance and support.
