We have worked with all kinds of organisations to develop and define IT strategies that work for them: from building a business case for a borough council to readying an international airport for sale. The right IT strategy provides an internal business case for investment, a technology roadmap and medium to long-term investment plans. With our completely independent expertise and endorsement of your plans, you can get to where you need to be quicker, whether you are changing service models, going through M&A or evolving your digital capabilities.
Because of our wide service capabilities, we know what good looks like: considering your infrastructure as a whole and ensuring that IT capability is aligned with wider business strategy. Company85’s consultants not only understand enterprise environments but are also entirely comfortable with presenting at all levels within the business. And as a completely independent consulting firm, you can trust that the advice we give you is based on your specific needs, rather than a desire to sell product.
However humble or extreme your vision for the future, Company85 can help bring it to life. Our consultants are as much keyboard as whiteboard, confident to architect, troubleshoot and manage complex environments onsite or offsite, on a long-term or interim basis. For building a hybrid cloud environment from scratch to global backup transformation, we have the experience to ensure that your blueprints become a reality.
We relish the opportunity to roll our sleeves up and get the job done. Our people do not just use their skills to recommend the best course of action but are equally comfortable designing bespoke solutions that work for you. Because we think of your infrastructure as a whole, we ensure that any modifications or additions don’t just do the required job but do it well, with resilience and longevity in mind. With Company85, you can be confident that whatever your business goals, your IT can enable and accelerate those changes.
We call ourselves ‘Independent IT Infrastructure Experts’ because that is what we are: so wherever in the project lifecycle you are, we can help you accomplish more. For 20 years we’ve been at the forefront of infrastructure innovation: whether we’re designing new models for NHS trusts, placing Virtual CISOs into global organisations or providing strong governance across complex migration, our consultants carry the weight of this experience.
Our 4D methodology underpins all our consulting services, to ensure that you retain visibility and control across the whole process. Our consultants don’t just find the problems but help you fix them: providing you with a bespoke, pragmatic roadmap for change and ensuring you have the internal and external skills to make the desired strategic changes. And with no product to sell, you can be sure that our advice is the right fit for you.
Whether you need some interim expertise to kickstart a stalled project or a long term PMO engagement to formalise governance, Company85 has all the tools you need to make sure change is managed effectively. From project managers to service delivery, we don’t just give you the expertise to get a job done but wrap around the skills required to ensure it is completed to the highest quality, on time and in budget.
Our consultants complement your internal skills, we don’t take over. By implementing our 4D Methodology, we can guarantee outcomes and accelerate IT project implementations by 25% and reduce costs by up to 30%. We pride ourselves on our ability to hit the ground running at any point in a project lifecycle, feeding in our years of experience to ensure risk is minimised and costs reduced.
How are today’s technology leaders shaping their operating models to achieve their vision?
You face an ever-changing technology landscape: IT and security leaders need to simultaneously align their services more closely to business goals, offer better value and incorporate relevant innovations.
Your strategy is sound but a disconnect with the operational layer can form.
Company85 has a proven methodology that helps technology leaders to develop the next generation of operating models. We’ve worked with the likes of Skanska, the NSPCC and Opel Vauxhall Finance to accelerate their vision, build the appropriate team and maximise the potential of disruptive technologies. All while integrating technology more closely to the wider business.
Disruptive Decision Making: Why the technology comfort blanket is holding back success
There is a common perception that technology is the key to digital transformation success. While technology can have a profound impact on business, our parent company’s research found that it’s only when people, processes and partnerships are brought together that profound change is realised and tangible business results achieved.
Sadly, organisations reported the least confidence in their people to contribute to digital transformation decision-making.
