Xperience

IT Strategy

We will create a future proof IT strategy that works for your business and vision

OVERVIEW

Working with you we will help you set out your vision for the future, and a direction of travel to help guide and steer decision making and deliver outcomes – all supported by the latest technology. We will look at the demands of the business, how IT will align and govern the strategic direction of the business and how IT services can be supplied to meet the business needs.

As businesses grow, they run at pace to keep up with business demand and more often than not changes are made without thinking about the long-term impact. Often these quick fixes can lead to a smorgasbord of systems, outdated and slow infrastructure and working with multiple suppliers where you can’t get a straight answer when you have a problem as each vendor blames the other for the fault. An IT strategy will help to put in place a roadmap for you to follow to help get your IT infrastructure in shape to allow your business to grow.

Creating an IT strategy and investing in technology can be risky. Costs can escalate and valuable resources can easily be consumed with project over runs if not managed correctly. That’s where Xperience steps in. We know because we have over 350 clients who have relied on us for Cloud and Managed IT. This depth of knowledge means that we can help our clients develop a future proof strategy for their business.

DEVELOPING YOUR STRATEGY

When looking at strategy you need to understand the why, what, who, when and where. These questions are fundamental to ensuring that we deliver a strategy that works for you, so we’ll work with you to understand:

Where are we now?

  • What are the business aspirations as well as the short, medium & long-term goals?
  • What does the current hardware and software environment look like?

  • Tell us about your key business processes

Where do you want to be?

  • What do you want to achieve and within what time frame?
  • How would you prioritise your ambitions and requirements?

How are we going to get there?
