CIO advisory

Today’s CIO agenda is largely focused around driving value through the IT organization and enabling the business with technology and information. IT is expected to add value by improving business performance, by accelerating time to market, by opening new markets, and facilitating mergers and acquisitions – all while keeping a sharp eye on cost and quality. We improve the strategic value of your investment in technology by supporting your business agenda, enabling technologies and addressing risk, governance, and data security issues.

IT strategy

Our team of experienced IT strategists helps clients build an effective IT strategy. This means that systems deliver value to the business and that the unique risks inherent in technology are monitored in an appropriate governance framework.

Emerging technologies

Organizations can achieve tangible benefits from emerging technologies such as mobility, social media and cloud computing. When turning IT risk into opportunity, an organization must demonstrate effective IT compliance through governance and controls, data integrity, security and privacy, and the supplier management compliance needed to embrace disruptive technologies. Our emerging technology risk services practice helps clients recognize and responsibly manage these risks.

Technology enablement solutions enhance our clients’ use of enterprise-wide business applications. We provide assistance to better enable technology needs as part of a client’s change program—from smaller-scale process improvements to larger transformation programs. We also provide core enabling technology services, including program and project management, testing and quality assurance, and technology architecture solutions.

Our cyber security framework illustrates both the organizational components and the iterative processes required to help assure customers, shareholders and employees that cyber risks are being managed. Our cyber security services practice brings together specialists in information protection and business continuity, risk management, privacy, organizational design, behavioral change and intelligence management.

Infrastructure assessment

Organizations are increasingly dependent on IT and are significantly impacted by its reliability, efficiency, and responsiveness. Yet, despite its importance and the significant investments in advanced software and platforms intended to optimize performance, senior leadership in many organizations remains unsatisfied. Our IT infrastructure assessment, design and selection practice helps you in enhance your efficiency, flexibility and effectiveness of your IT infrastructure.

Business continuity

Business continuity planning is essential to keep an organization functioning when business operations are disrupted. Our IT advisers help ensure that your organization functions smoothly in the face of potentially disruptive events. We analyze your organization’s business-critical processes, assess risks and analyze business impact to develop preventive measures and policies for alternative process management. Developing a business continuity strategy and a master plan for business continuity with integrated disaster recovery prepares your organization for disruptive events and reduces the potential impact of such events on your organization.

IT audits

Organizations with an IT internal audit function rarely have their IT function comprehensively assessed and, so may be exposed to various risks such as ineffective IT cost management, absence of security and fraud prevention controls and poor service delivery. We can work with you on a co-sourced or outsourced arrangement to support your IT internal audit function by bringing a wide range of skills across different technology domains.
