Technology and Systems
According to a 2011 study by McKinsey, there is a disconnect “between what’s top of mind for CEOs and the attitudes and abilities of IT leaders.” IT leaders still focus on “keep the lights on” projects while CEOs expect IT to help address competitive challenges and drive bottom line growth. No longer is it enough for IT to achieve a positive ROI – it must directly and positively contribute to the enterprise’s bottom line.
To achieve that kind of result requires the very close alignment of technology and systems. Most organizations are completely unprepared to do that alignment. This is where MSS management services and technology consulting comes in. For organizations seeking leadership on technology-related change management and cost-effective implementation and integration of technology systems, MSS business consultants can help.
For all but the most leading-edge organizations, true alignment of technology and systems represents a whole-scale business transformation, and requires the participation of all business functions. MSS will help you through that business transformation with enterprise business systems, consolidation of operations, outsourcing of processes, as well as risk management, compliance, and governance.
