Strategic Planning and Technology Roadmaps

Reliant’s Management Consulting team works with your organization to improve its performance by analyzing your existing challenges and creates both strategies and plans for improvement. Thought leadership is important for every organization.

 

We have management consultants in place who are able to help you get value out of your IT investment, understand business and how IT needs to be aligned, and corporate budgeting. We have worked with many customers who initially had business or technology limitations and have helped to successfully transform them into organizations with well- planned and executed technology strategies.

he first step in assisting with this transformation is to develop an IT Strategic Plan or an IT Assessment (not every customer is the same and they all require a different approach).

 

In doing this work, Reliant initially works with the business and then reviews IT. The plan or assessment might review the effectiveness of an organization’s Technology, IT Staffing & Processes and IT Governance Domains. Once the engagement is complete, and findings reviewed, we develop a set of recommendations for next steps along with an executable roadmap in order to improve the delivery of IT.

Backup and Disaster Recovery Planning

The core of Reliant’s business is implementing hybrid cloud architectures and part of this engagement includes implementing solid disaster recovery plans.  At the heart of disaster, recovery plans are backup and cloud plans.

 

Cybersecurity is a top concern for almost every organization and a data
breach is one of the most potentially devastating events a business can
experience in today’s digital world. When disasters happen, private customer data, proprietary files, private email correspondence, and stored files are all at risk. No one wants to deal with business disasters, but they can and do happen. 

Therefore, it is important to have a Disaster Recovery Plan in place before you experience a disaster and today disasters also include security breaches.  Reliant can help you develop your plan, implement, execute, and test your disaster recovery plan that is the right fit for your business to ensure you are able to continue with your business in the event of a disaster.

Reliant’s approach to building a Disaster Recovery Plan consists of 3 phases.

  • Phase 1: Build a detailed understanding of our customer’s disaster recovery requirements and Strategies. 

 

  • Phase 2: Work with the infrastructure and application teams to build out detailed recovery processes.  We then validate and build a Disaster Recovery Management Plan.

 

  • Phase 3: Work with the team to execute Disaster Recovery testing (tabletop and actual fail overs/failbacks) and update the processes. 

If you would like to meet and have a discussion about your Disaster
Recovery Requirements, please.

Business Case Development

A business case is needed when resources or expenditure on a project has to be justified. Approval is usually sought from the project sponsor and other interested parties. It is important to develop a business case during the early stages of a project and outline the why, what, how, and who necessary to decide if it is worthwhile to continue a project.

One of the first things you need to know when starting a new project are the benefits of the proposed business change and how to communicate the benefits to the business.
 

These issues are an important part of the business case. They express the
problems with the current situation and demonstrate the benefits of the new business vision.


The business case unites the advantages, weaknesses, expenses, and dangers of the ongoing circumstance and future vision so the executives can choose if the venture ought to push ahead.

Preparing the business case involves:

  • Business problem or opportunity

  • Benefits

  • Risk

  • Costs including investment appraisal

  • Technical solutions

  • Time

  • Impact on operations

  • Organizational capability to deliver the project outcomes

Technology and Product Evaluation and Selection

Technology has become one of the key drivers for sustainable business growth and is an integral part of business strategy development. It is critical to have a structured approach in prioritizing, evaluating, assessing, business
case formulation, benefits case creation, and selection of the technology.


We deliver a custom designed approach to technology selection, based on best practices, and fit to your needs. Our approach is targeted at producing the deliverables you need to support you design making process.
