IT Assessment

Assessing the Business Value and Technical Condition of an Organizations IT Assets

Organizations invest huge amounts in information technology assets. Like any portfolio of assets, an organization need to manage them wisely and plan for their maintenance, their retirement and their periodic replacement. An IT Assessment establishes a baseline of the current IT assets - Applications, Hardware, Data, and Organization - and evaluates the gap between the current state of these assets and your business and technology objectives. In turn this baseline is used to properly plan IT investment strategies, to identify strategic and tactical IT initiatives, and to set budget priorities.

The IT Assessment answers key questions such as:

  • How do current the IT Assets support fundamental business goals and processes?

  • What is the life-cycle, the condition and the investment approach for each application in the portfolio?

  • What is the transition and renewal approach for each application in the portfolio?

  • Where should the organization be focusing its IT spending?
