Developing Your ICT Strategy.


May 25, 2022

Having a clear, well-defined strategy is essential for any business to survive, grow and reach its maximum potential.  However, does your business have an ICT strategy?  If so, does it align with your overall business strategy and objectives?

Without an Effective ICT Strategy

Without having a carefully considered ICT strategy it can be easy to lose sight of the bigger picture.  Not having a sound grasp on your ICT strategy can also derail the advancement of the overall business strategy which can lead down the path of:

  • Uncontrolled costs
  • Solutions that either inhibit the performance of your business or impede progress when trying to take the business in the direction it needs to go
  • Taking on or being blind to the concept of technical debt and making critical decisions without understanding the implications

With an Effective ICT Strategy

Having an informed ICT strategy will help your business to:

  • Drive growth whilst improving efficiency
  • Plan ahead and avoid unnecessary risk and disruption
  • Better align an IT strategy with the intended direction of your business. Managed Services Australia can implement IT solutions that help get your business to where you want it to be rather than grappling with the hurdles presented by unsuitable or legacy technology

Before a client engages us to work with them or provide any services, we like to sit down, have a talk, and really get to know what their business is about and what drives them.  When we have a better understanding of what is most important to your business, then we can assist with developing an ICT strategy that’s a good fit with the overall strategic goals and objectives to help you get where you want to be.

Once we have an outline of your business’s strategic goals and objectives, just some of the key areas we can then assist with to develop your ICT strategy include:

  • Reviewing your current technology landscape and networks for any gaps or inefficiencies
  • Getting an understanding of the remaining lifespan of existing hardware and solutions in place
  • Identifying what areas to focus on to ensure the technology supports the direction of the business and its underlying objectives
  • Creating a blueprint to manage the ICT resources long term to ensure everything stays on track and ensure your business achieves its objectives

How do we help you:

As part of our Total Care service offering, we provide on-site quarterly business reviews and Virtual CIO services, helping to both continually develop your ICT strategy and ensure your business stays on track.

During our quarterly business reviews, we conduct detailed health checks and share insights into:

  • Strategy for operational improvement
  • Cost reduction opportunities
  • Core systems status
  • Review monitoring reports
  • Review ticketing trends
  • Licensing audits
  • Vendor audits
  • Data loss prevention
  • Site Reliability
  • Implement problem management strategies
  • Implement planned enhancements

At Managed Services Australia we not only help your business with its ICT strategy, but we also provide all services you might need to run a modern business, including hardware procurement.
