Getting technology right in an organisation has never been more important. An optimised IT strategy offers both a roadmap for transformation and an opportunity to achieve your goals more effectively.

Your IT strategy defines how your organisation supplies and operates its technology services. It should:

  • directly reflect your business priorities and goals
  • set out a structured, efficient, and sustainable plan
  • maximise performance and deliver value
  • provide a roadmap for getting future-fit.

Whether you’re based in the public or private sector, our technology consultants will help you move from your ‘as is’ IT environment to your ideal ‘to be’ IT operating model.

IT strategy and planning for Canterbury Cathedral

The challenge
The cathedral’s IT department and IT infrastructure needed investment and modernisation.
The solution
A detailed assessment and operational review leading to a strategic plan around cloud-first service delivery models, project governance improvements and completion of projects.
The results
The cathedral were able to plan how to reduce on-site infrastructure and associated costs, align stakeholders and resolve part-complete projects that had led to high overheads.
