IT Roadmap and planning

IT Roadmaps and Planning

Achieving the desired level of computer and network performance is about identifying the best long term solution through IT strategic planning. IT Planning considers all aspects of your work environment, pressures placed on hardware, data and network systems and external threats to provide a clear and concise road map of system requirements and investment.

To ensure IT strategy is executed smoothly and with minimal downtime, our team work hard to develop strategic roadmaps to communicate their direct impact on the business.

Involved IT can deliver strategic planning services for your specific business, catering for existing activity through to future growth requirements. This approach provides a platform for future CAPEX budgeting and system acquisition compliance (standardisation).

Involved IT are adept at finding ways to improve business performance through technology. We spend the time to become completely immersed in our customers’ worlds, understanding their business almost as well as their CEOs and CIOs do. We use our IT sector’s knowledge and expertise to make recommendations that perfectly fit our customers’ business strategies. We aren’t hesitant to challenge assumptions or ask those difficult questions to investigate the areas nobody likes to think about.

We ensure you benefit from focused and completely impartial and pragmatic advice when it comes to technology. We will do what is best for your business and will never recommend a solution just because we have software or technology skills in that area. Involved IT has a rich and providing understanding of new and emerging technologies which helps improve staff productivity.

Project management and budgeting

Project Management and Budgeting

A great business idea or technical design will not by itself lead to a successful project. Projects are hard to do - the ambiguity, uncertainty and changes they bring about can be unsettling for those involved and those impacted. Project governance, planning, scope control, business change management, risk management and communication are just some of the skills needed. We combine this project skillset with business acumen, experience and drive to successfully deliver any project (or a whole programme of projects). Following an assessment of the current environment, we can guide you through creating a robust business with a realistic budget which demonstrates clear tangible benefits.

We work hard to provide businesses with innovative, cost-effective and robust solutions on time and well within budget. Involved IT takes complete ownership of the project and works hard to ensure the agreed goal gets achieved using our skills and experience to drive forward even the most complex projects and programmes of work. We understand agile and waterfall and any hybrid in between and work directly for clients or third parties to ensure successful delivery.

Whether we are supporting a poorly project back on track or setting out on a greenfield programme of work, our project/programme managers can plan, manage, rescue, mitigate and lead a team to deliver proven exceptional results.

Mergers and acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions

We can deliver technology due-diligence by partnering seamlessly with your legal, commercial and financial teams to appraise and mitigate the risks technology presents to the deal. Involved IT plan and execute the organisation’s integration or migration whilst providing an impartial team to lead and advise technology projects. Involved IT will assess/advise IT considerations at the start of the due-diligence stage, ensuring the project delivers on time and budget while maintaining key business value.

Involved IT has experience in technology and business across sectors as diverse as education and finance. We can rapidly deploy specialists in M&A to provide business consulting, technology and cyber resilience capability.

We can help if you’re planning to sell your business and need help assessing your readiness; thinking of acquiring a company to drive growth, or you’re an investor looking to buy into a new business. We will work with you in partnership, and ensure we will always tell you the truth you need to hear and challenge the status quo when you need it.

Cyber Security

In today’s world, all businesses need to ensure that critical data remains protected from an evolving landscape of cyber threats.
