“Alice came to a fork in the road. ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked. ‘Where do you want to go?’ responded the Cheshire Cat. ‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered. ‘Then,’ said the Cat, ‘it doesn’t matter.’”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Words of wisdom for life and business: you’ll never get there if you don’t know where you’re going. Assessments and roadmaps are designed to help you define where you’re going and what the best route is to get there. An IT assessment provides a holistic view of your current IT capabilities, or a reference point for how your IT environment is performing. You might be thinking about making changes to your business processes; an assessment will give you the facts you need as a base for your business plan. More interested in how to get from here to there? A roadmap will give you the direction you need to make it happen and get you closer to your goals.
Looking for an assessment that’s not on the list? We have a range of assessments including managed services and change management strategy. Want a custom assessment? No problem, let’s talk.
For example, if your organization is going through a merger or acquisition, an IT assessment will look at how to integrate the different IT systems, plan what the new end state will look like, and evaluate the return on investment to outsourcing IT versus keeping it in-house.
Want to see it in action? A customer with significant security concerns had placed a blanket ban on personal devices in the office. They believed that very few staff members were violating this policy but wanted to be sure. An IT assessment identified that the ban was unsuccessful, and as a result recommended the creation of an enterprise mobility program. With the new BYOD policy, IT addressed its security and cost concerns while the organization benefited from empowered employees and productivity gains.
With the results of your assessment in hand, you may want to consider how Investment Justification services can also help ensure your investment in IT meets its goals.
