INFORMATION SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT

The Challenge of Planning, Acquiring and Managing Information Systems

Today’s competitive businesses deploy Information Systems (IS) in every department to support every business function from the company’s value chain to the back-office. ISM includes hardware, software, telecommunications, methods, people and organization components. Within an ever-increasingly dynamic technological environment, each business must manage IS to maximize investments and achieve or maintain a competitive business advantage while ensuring their IS strategy is aligned with their business strategy and vision. ISM is not the business of most companies, so some companies consider outsourcing as an alternative to managing all or part of the IS functions and/or operations.

Having the right technology partner that brings the right person (or team of people) with the right skill(s) in the right place at the right time can be an essential component of successful IS management. Success is measured by the ability to meet objectives and deliver results. Our extensive IS experiences enables us to work with you to develop an overall IS strategy or to assist with a specific IS implementation project. The following list of IS Services can be mixed to provide special expertise and ensure that there is a proper transfer of knowledge and skills to meet the various business challenges.
