IT Strategy & Governance Planning

There is a constant demand for value for money from every employee and process in an organisation. IT managers and technology decision makers are under significant pressure to deliver effective IT solutions and services to drive efficiency, performance and governance.

Nexus understand that an effective IT strategy should be intrinsically aligned to operational and financial restrictions. Our IT consultants are able to work closely with you by employing a multi-faceted approach to help you to develop a strategy and governance structure that will use technology to improve the operation and management of your organisation.

In defining an IT strategy, we help clients to identity gaps between their current IT capabilities and their current operation or future direction. Working in collaboration with your IT team we can help to design a technology roadmap, identifying initiatives that enable you to reach defined goals. Whether you are looking to implement an IT solution, or launch an SharePoint intranet, we can guide you through the whole process.

During an IT strategy review we listen as you tell us what your organisation wants to achieve and where you are now. We then analyse the gaps in your current IT strategy and recommend alternative methods or approaches. These recommendations may include new IT solutions, services and training or modifications to your existing environment.

To successfully execute and manage an IT strategy, your organisation needs an IT governance framework that defines how users and operators can interact with your business technology systems and infrastructure. Our consultants can help organisations to create IT governance procedures that mitigate risks by managing user-access rights, operating protocols and change-management policies.

Nexus has delivered IT strategy and governance projects in many different industries and we have years of experience working with the following information technology management procedures and standards:

  • IT infrastructure growth and capacity planning
  • Software automation and workflow analysis
  • IT security and risk assessments
  • Business continuity planning
  • Return on investment (ROI) reporting
  • IT budget and cost analysis (TCO)
  • Support and maintenance procedures
  • Staffing and personal development
  • Stakeholder due diligence
  • PCI DSS compliance
  • ISO 27001

We can help your organisation to implement ITIL and PRINCE2, which are the most widely accepted approaches to IT service and project management. ITIL and PRINCE2 provide a cohesive set of IT governance and best practices, drawn from the public and private sectors.

If you are looking to create an IT strategy or governance plan, we can act as a “virtual IT manager” or provide a source of technical advice to your IT team. These services are supplied as standard if you are an existing Nexus IT support and maintenance or managed service customer.
