IT Strategy and Portfolio Management

Does your IT portfolio align with your organizational strategy? Are you looking for a better way to prioritize and track IT investments as part of a digital transformation initiative? Our IT strategy and portfolio management service addresses these challenges with a three-phased approach. During the discovery phase we catalog current IT applications and identify pain points and challenges. During the future state planning phase, we help develop IT strategy and perform a rationalization effort to determine whether applications need to be enhanced, modernized, or retired. During future state implementation, we help prioritize, plan, and track the projects needed to get from the current to the future state.
