Are your business and your IT plan steering the same course?
Is your IT infrastructure giving you a competitive advantage in the market? Or, like many companies, is IT derailing your business efforts rather than propelling them forward? Do you find your IT spending unpredictable, with “surprise” expenses occurring with each IT crisis?
The DynaSis Solution: IT Strategy Consulting
Call upon one of DynaSis’ Virtual CIOs—executive-level IT professionals with significant experience in strategic IT planning and execution—to help you devise a clear and consistent IT plan for supporting your business objectives rather than cripple them. You can proceed with confidence, knowing that each IT investment is planned and appropriate.
Step One: Infrastructure Assessment and Analysis
First, DynaSis will perform a preliminary IT assessment. Each IT network is unique and contains different sets of equipment, levels of security and management practices. In order to make the best possible recommendations DynaSis will conduct an inventory, launch a security vulnerability analysis, evaluate your disaster recovery plan and processes, and document all service contracts and policies.
We will then analyze the solution in its entirety, outline existing issues and roadblocks, and quantify by total cost of ownership both the existing environment and any recommended modifications.
Step Two: Business Requirements Discovery and Strategic IT Roadmap
In the second phase, your Virtual CIO will ask you to identify and describe your current and anticipated business goals and objectives. That information will be mapped against your IT baseline and analysis. Your CIO will then guide you in realigning IT investments with concrete business improvements.
Working together as a team, you will identify the IT services and capabilities that best meet the needs of your business and the proper timeframe for implementing them. All areas of tangible benefit will be explored, from desktop and mobile/remote devices and network infrastructure to line-of-business applications, telecommunications and disaster recovery.
The result will be a dynamic but reliable IT roadmap and budget that evolves with your business, ensuring that IT spending is timely and justified.
Step Three: Institutionalizing the Strategic IT Roadmap
Finally, your Virtual CIO will develop IT strategy consulting recommendations targeted to put the IT Roadmap into action. We will help you integrate the IT Roadmap into your cyclical business planning and manage it on an ongoing basis. Throughout the year, we will review the IT Roadmap with your top management and update it based on progress and changes in your business. On an annual basis, we will refresh the plan to provide input for your fiscal-year planning.
If desired, we can also provide Program Management of the initiatives included in the roadmap.
