Technology Management to meet the Business Need
All organizations are continuously assessing their current and potential information technology leadership. Valuable management and technical resources expend significant time and attention assessing new technologies that might support business goals. Unfortunately many new technology initiatives do not generate the expected benefits, and may exceed the expected costs.
Process Partners provides the combination of information technology leadership, change management, project execution and risk management experience and skills, to complement a company's internal resources where needed to ensure expected benefits are achieved and expected costs are not exceeded.
Management is often challenged by the following situations:
- Reliance on System Administrators for technology management decisions
- Lack of understanding of technology to support strategic business goals
- High costs associated with full time CIO position
- No opportunity to maintain current knowledge in the rapidly changing technology environment
Many mid-sized companies do not have a full-time CIO and rely on network administrators and / or external systems consultants to manage their day-to-day technology requirements. These system administrators may have added responsibilities beyond their core competencies that could negatively impact the company's strategic business goals. Information technology leadership is critical to business processes and functions. In order for these companies to reach the next level and become "world class" industry competitors, effective technology leadership is mandatory. Process Partners can provide that technology leadership and access to CIO talent and experience for a fraction of what it would cost to retain those services full-time.
The purpose of the CIO is to facilitate the strategic business goals of the company's management team utilizing technology that cost effectively makes those goals attainable. Process Partners provides CIO (Chief Information Officer) services that address and resolve the complex business problems faced by small to midsized companies without an in-house resource. At Process Partners we utilize our real world experience in the CIO role to provide effective technology management in support of Management's business goals.
