Technical Due Diligence

Every business is at risk from internal and external agents, from cyber-crime to inefficiencies. If you need to ensure that there is a proper look 'under the bonnet' to identify areas that need strengthening, from Agile adoption not working, to security - even with ISO accreditation there are areas that may not be looked at fully by an auditor. Having someone with years of technical experience ask the awkward questions and dig into the areas to uncover what is known but not discussed can ensure that your technical department provides you with the best return on investment.

Technology Strategy

Often growth is limited by the technology or development. Increasingly new competitors will appear fast and out of the blue, benefiting from new technology. The direction your team has may be set by engineering or academic disciplines, and not aligned to the business. I help ensure that your strategy benefits from technology, and isn't hindered by it; get the best out of teams & align them to business goals. A short audit to identify the areas followed by practical strategies that I will help implement will make you more agile and more profitable.

Protect Your Company with Technical Due Diligence

With the introduction of the information age came the rise of a new discipline known as 'technical due diligence'. As an expert technology strategist and experienced CTO, technical due diligence is a core part of my skillset. I understand that it is critical to maintaining a company's security, viability, and productivity. It is something that cannot be ignored in a world that relies almost exclusively on technology to drive business forward.

Technology Strategist - SaaS Should Support, Not Hinder Business

Your company has hired a technology strategist to help streamline things. After a few days of poking around and analysing, the strategist recommends a lengthy list of changes, including abandoning some of the company's legacy software in favour of a software as a service (SaaS) model. The suggestion is a good one – but only if SaaS supports your business rather than hindering it.

Technology Strategy Consultants Have New Roles Amid Brexit

Last June, the UK saw a day that many thought would never come as voters chose to leave the EU. Some seven months later, the May government delivered a letter to the European Parliament officially triggering Article 50. The events mean a lot of things to a lot of different people; they mean very significant things to the technology strategist.
