IT Governance is all about being smart, investing resources where they deliver the maximum benefit. Using a business focused and strategic approach, we can identify areas of improvement and propose factual solutions tailored to your requirements.
We will use a range of internationally accepted best practices, like CoBIT and ITIL, and a large dose of common sense and business awareness, coupled with many years of experience in many different fields and observing many different companies - something that cannot be learned by training.
If your company needs a 'second look' on its IT activities, or if you are interested in knowing about additional options, we can help you.
New IT Risk Services helps companies in a number of ways:
For many companies, selecting the right IT solution is a challenge. We can assist companies by offering a mix of business analysis, cost/benefit evaluations, feasibility reviews and all preparatory activities aimed to solve a business challenge
IT architecture reviews
We can review and formulate recommendations to streamline, simplify and consolidate information management systems, reducing the TCO and improving the efficiency of IT within your company. We can deliver added value by reducing information fragmentation, automating labor-intensive processes, and avoiding the typical bottlenecks present in many information management systems.
With many years of experience in this field, we can assist you in strengthening your company's ability to recover information assets from incidents. We can evaluate and improve both the Disaster Recovery and the Business Continuity plan, ensuring that your business is well prepared, in a cost effective manner. We can evaluate your DR processes and procedures, your DR site, your backup and recovery system and your DR testing.
And we can advice you on a number of cost-effective ways to realize this result.
We can assist you in understanding what information is needed when, by whom, and how. By adopting a technology-neutral approach, we can identify ways to reduce your dependence on complex technical 'black boxes', realizing material cost savings and enhancing overall information flow effectiveness. The big disadvantage of technology experts is that they sometimes do not realize the possibility to enhance information management without the need to purchase costly technical solutions. As a result, many companies have introduced during the years a number of technical means that, while possibly effective, are cumbersome and costly to use and maintain. Our approach is different - we concentrate on information, not on the technology around it.
Outsourcing agreements and third party management
We can assist you in deciding if your company can out source IT services, which services can be effectively out sourced, and how. We can also help you in determining the contractual agreement with your business partner and how to control that the third party will deliver what promised. We can also assist in the selection process and in the negotiations with the third party
Staff assessment and selection
We can assist you in selecting the right people for your company. We can evaluate their expertise and experience beyond what is written on their CV and their formal training, having the ability to understand their 'fitness for purpose' within your specific company.
IT function evaluation and transformation
We can act as an evaluation and transformation force between the IT and business worlds, as a 'bridge' able to translate in universal terms each other's challenges, requirements and concerns.
We can assist in determining scope of action and modality of work for the IT function in a way that IT is aligned with business requirements, transforming the relationship towards true partnership and enhancing effective communications.
