IT Consultancies tend to come into your workplace and work through providing high level strategic consultations – some specialising in the mobile and fixed telecommunications, logistics and supply chain and service management markets. Normally they will carry out business analysis – employing structured business process modelling techniques to assist in managing change and analysing costs and risks.

By managing the procurement process from specification, notices and ITT creation, to tender evaluation process and contract negotiation – selecting potential vendors and arranging for formal appraisal of offers.
IT consultancies can advise on the development of new products – preparing propositions and managing the go to market process. They can also design business process systems – conducting current IT technology architecture reviews in order to assess possible technical solutions. They provide project and programme management in a range of areas – preparing feasibility studies and building business cases.
By using an IT consultancy you can ensure that you take the correct steps on the path to a stable, rooted business that has given its technology base a fair chance at creating a business environment conducive with change and flexibility.
