Strategy

Your goals

Delivering them

Do you have a clearly defined goal for your technology? A timeline to deliver it? An assessment of the resources you have and those that you will need to deliver the plan?

Strategic IT

If the answer to one of those questions is no then our IT Strategy services can make a big difference in your organisation. We start by asking you about your organisation & wider goals, we then assess your current technology deployment and then we move on to design an IT Strategy, tailored for you.

 

Our IT Strategy output is written in a way that non-IT people can understand it; it provides clear goals, a realistic set of timescales and a presentation of which resources you’ll need and when. We are happy to work with your priorities; for example we can create capex friendly plans, phased approaches to spread spending, cost saving ideas and just about any other challenge you have.

 

IT Due Diligence

From a Business perspective there is a need to develop a clear understanding of the future structure, plan a systems roadmap and technology strategy. This can only be achieved with a detailed understanding of where you are now.

GB3 can review the current IT provision, review any proposed new systems and technology direction and propose the best operating model for IT delivery, using our 3 step approach:

 

Review

These steps are articulated into an easy to read document, split into 4 categories:  

 

Data Centre & HQ

 

User Computing

 

Network

 

Policies & Security

Covering IT budget, cost savings, delivering commercial advantage, recommended IT delivery model and transition timeframe.

We believe that having a clear understanding of your IT infrastructure is key to a comprehensive business strategy, it guides IT investment decisions by focusing spend on mitigating risk, and providing competitive advantage.
