Ninestone’s Technology Assessment service provides an opportunity to take a snapshot of your technology requirements and compare them to your current state. The Assessment will be the groundwork towards identifying needs, opportunities, and budgeting requirements. From this baseline, we work with you to develop a prioritized action plan, along with a budget that matches your specific organizational needs.
The Technology Assessment includes:
- Evaluate current systems and support levels
- Identify and recomend opportunities for improvement
- Develop an action plan with corresponding budget
We take an organizational approach to Technology Assessments by working with staff to determine requirements for day-to-day IT operations. We review some or all aspects of your company’s IT current state. Areas you can define to be within the scope of the Technology Assessment include:
- Office Infrastructure
- Network Architecture
- Mobile Solutions
- Ongoing Maintenance
- Disaster Recovery /Backups
- Client Communication and Relationship Management
- Software / Hardware Purchasing / Inventory / Deployment
- Support Services
Upon completion of the Technology Assessment, we can provide planning, resource management, new system recommendations, IT staffing plans, technology maintenance plans, and a recommended budget for ongoing technology support. We will recommend improvement opportunities and point out potential areas for outsourcing. We work with you to determine the most appropriate scope and deliverables for your organization’s needs. To date, each of our Technology Assessment engagements has been slightly different, representing the varying requirements of our clients.
We invite you to use our Technology Planning Checklist to see if your business is a candidate for a Technology Assessment.
