Why IT Consulting?
Technology evolves every day. Innovations developed three years ago may not have been considered when you last refreshed your systems. But those innovations may now be needed to gather data, make decisions or automate key processes. At the same time, clients, suppliers and users change the way they work, buy and interact with you. This complicates and adds complexities to IT infrastructure, planning, governance and support.
Unfortunately, full-time, executive-level technology expertise is often far more expensive than many organizations can justify or afford. Loffler's IT Consulting Services are tailored specifically to each client, to ensure you get exactly the expertise you need, at a price that makes sense for your business.
How Does IT Consulting Work?
While each of the actions we list here may be involved in working with an IT consultant, all consulting engagements are unique. Some will only need an assessment to begin building a stronger IT environment.
An IT consulting engagement always begins with an assessment of your current situation. Whether you need to focus on strategy, security or technology (or a mixture of all three), it is important for you and your IT consultant to have a strong understanding of where you are now.
After an assessment comes a planning stage, which involves input from you, the client, and the expertise of your consultant. To build a plan that works for your organization, we include observations and input from your IT team, end-users and leaders of your organization.
Once a plan is created, it's time to focus on implementation. An IT consultant will help you communicate, execute and improve upon the plan to ensure a strong start to your project or initiative.
Your IT consultant may also stand-in to provide ongoing management to measure progress and ensure you're hitting benchmarks to succeed and reach goals on time. Keep in mind that some organizations do not have senior-level IT leadership available to them. An IT consultant can stand in to provide accountability and guidance as you work toward achieving your goals.
How to Get Started
