IT assessment and strategy
IT fulfils an important role in the operation of organisations with modern and complex processes, for example in the day-to-day operations of the organisation, the carrying out of back office tasks and the supporting of general business activities. As such, how efficiently IT supports operations work and helps the realisation of business goals is a very important issue. Based on our experiences with our clients, our belief is that IT that operates on an entrenched basis will only be able to partly (or with difficulty) support an organisation’s operations. As a result, we feel it is important to regularly examine whether current IT tools, resources and processes are optimal, or if it is necessary to change or modify them. Our company helps with handling this issue by carrying out an IT assessment procedure, and working out subsequent strategies to help improve IT efficiency.
Our specialists carry out IT assessment so that organisations can receive objective feedback regarding their IT operations. The aim of the assessment is to provide answers to the organisation’s management (including IT representatives) concerning the characteristics, strengths and weaknesses of the organisation’s IT operations. As part of this assessment process, our specialist examine relevant IT subdivisions, and can carry out a complete IT survey. The results of this process are usually presented in a detailed analytical report that contains a thorough description of current IT operations, as well as developmental recommendations including short-term error correction steps.
IT systems can only be successful if it has been made clear what is required from them in the long term. The demands and requirements on IT may come from external sources (legislation, directives) or from internal sources (business strategy, organisational goals); taking this into account, an organisation’s IT strategy, adapted to different circumstances, provides the answer to the question how (subservient vs. innovative) and by means of which tools IT can support the realisation of business goals in the medium and long term. Based on the results of the assessment process carried out by our specialist, IT strategy projects implemented by RacioNet Zrt. typically define an organisation’s IT vision, IT policy and IT strategy for the following three to five years.
