IT Strategy

IT is a critical part of any organization’s strategy. Step one is an objective, comprehensive look at your business operations and needs to help you identify the right solutions. We'll guide you through a holistic strategic planning process to clarify goals and objectives for your IT organization, management processes, and assets, such as enterprise applications and infrastructure.

 We'll provide strategic planning insight based on experience assisting other organizations to reimagine their IT strategy functions — from application development and help desk management, to project portfolio management and IT governance. Our goal is to leave you with an IT strategy that aligns major initiatives, investments, and tactics with your goals.

Our clients say

As UPHP grew over the past 20years, our IT department kept evolving, but frustration began to set in regarding our processes. We realized we needed outside experts to conduct a thorough IT assessment, looking at not only our processes, but our people as well.

The Plante Moran team came in and did just that. Their IT consultants worked with us to clarify our goals and expectations and worked hands-on with our staff. They provided clear, comprehensive communication and their end-results were spot on. They walked us through their findings and recommendations, taking the time to explain everything and answer any questions. They left us with a concise strategic plan that will help us get from point A to point B.

I feel they went above and beyond working with our IT director, providing the tools and imparting the knowledge we need to keep moving forward.
