Information Technology

Information Technology (IT) has become critical to the operations and competitiveness of organizations around the world. Effectiveness of IT support of the business is under the spotlight because IT is typically among an organization's top five expenditures, yet research reveals that an average of 10 to 25% of a company's total IT spending is wasted or used unwisely. In today's regulatory compliance environment, it's no wonder senior executives have serious, valid concerns about the IT systems and the extent to which they support business objectives and the risks IT poses in their organizations and the accountability of costs

  • You wish to have a partner in selection or implementation of the right software
