The most suitable IT strategy will depend on the nature of a business and the IT organisation. IT strategy can break down into several areas. At its simplest, your business uses applications to support business processes (so you need an application strategy), and IT uses technology to deliver the applications (so you need a technology strategy).

To help you to develop your IT Strategy, we combine our knowledge and experience of the IT marketplace and approaches used by other businesses, with techniques such as value chain analysis and business process analysis. In addition we ensure we have the right level of engagement and interaction with your people.
