Strategy

Our service allows your company to align business strategy with IT strategy

Now more than ever organizations are challenging IT providers to deliver a service to the business and don’t want to concern themselves with the underlying technology. Gone are the days when IT could sit back and just react. Businesses now demand more from IT and view IT as a strategic enabler that can be leveraged for competitive advantage.

Get IT talking to business in the same language

We can take on the role of managing Information, Communication and Associated technology-based services in the company to strategically, operationally and tactically manage and deliver successful outcomes.

You as a business leader are not concerned about speeds and feeds. You want to grow your top line, reduce operational overheads and provide better quality outcomes for your clients.

Also, you want to know how technology can help you achieve all the above. We engage with clients further up the value chain where our strategy offerings are not commoditized cookie cut packages.

Find new solutions for old problems

Our CIOs come from a range of backgrounds – financial services, banking, manufacturing, retail, education to name a few.

What they have in common is the ability to own a client’s problems and analyse them through the lens of their past experience.

They then come up with a fresh approach that allows our customers to be more competitive, rid processes of inefficiencies and gain a competitive edge.

IT strategy on demand

You wouldn’t let your IT technician manage your finance function would you? How does it make sense then to engage IT techs to deliver on business and IT strategy? They simply can’t because they are not equipped to think strategically and have a helicopter view of the business and then architect a framework that scales as your business grows.

You need a CIO to drive digital transformation within your business. AUP IT can give you a virtual CIO who has the technical and business expertise to support your company’s growth.

Highly strategical and analytical, our virtual CIOs can provide you with the right strategy that will help you achieve your corporate goals and objectives. It’s time to take your business to new heights!

IT strategy and roadmap

Ensuring that business and IT are aligned and that IT is being best leveraged to get new clients, respond effectively and quickly, and provide the foundation for data flow on which sound decisions can be based.

CIO for hire

Most small to mid-sized don’t need a full-time CIO/CTO which is where we come in. Our CIO consultants will not just OWN the strategy piece but also assist tactically and operationally as needed. They are available on demand and can assist with procurement management, running RFPs, writing up an IT review report, understanding the cybersecurity posture of an organisation and providing senior IT leadership to the Board and Executive Management teams.

Digital Transformation

Understanding the competitive landscape in which a business exists and putting in place a plan to review business processes across functions, review capacity and capability of staff to effect foundational change is a tough ask. Our CIOs can help. They come with vast experience in managing change and keeping stakeholders informed and engaged.

Governance, Risk and Compliance

Most organisations carry the risk of exposure to malicious actors in the shape of ransomware, phishing and other attacks. However, if you ask most businesses no one owns the cyber risk function or the IT function. A mature CIO addresses GRC as a foundational block on which the rest of the IT edifice is built and works towards building a framework to address this.
