The advantages of a strategic framework approach to an Information Technology review are significant as it delivers:
CIO as a Service
CIO as a Service provides a longer term engagement than an IT Review and how it is structured would depend on the size of the firm and the level of involvement the firm requires. In general we would see an initial involvement that could be 3 days a week for possibly a month, and then, depending on the outcomes, an ongoing involvement on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. One of the benefits of the CIO as a Service over a Review is that IPS would have a longer, and therefore less constricted, timeframe to build relationships with key stakeholders, gain a deeper understanding of the business, and identify opportunities for improvement. Therefore the key delivery from this would still be an IT Review but one that would be more comprehensive and recommendations that are implemented would have appropriate oversight.
Our contacts within professional services, both client and vendor, enable us to remain current with what is happening in the market place, information that share with our clients. We also conduct regular surveys, some broad based, others on specific topics, with the latter usually being requested by clients.
We recently conducted a survey on Legal IT which has received considerable press coverage. The full report can be read here.
