Custom solutions for every step of the technology journey

The digital landscape is constantly shifting, and it can be difficult to know whether the tools, processes, resources, and capabilities you have today are enough to serve you through tomorrow. Here’s how we can be that trusted technology partner and business advisor you need for the digital present and future:

Advisory technology consulting

Typically, technology is either enabling or constraining your growth. We can help you identify current gaps and opportunities, anticipate future solutions, optimize investments, and increase the efficient use of resources. We provide holistic technology consulting from specific application or requirement assessments; industry trend opportunity analyses; roadmapping and investment planning workshops; process optimization; and more.


Ensuring the security of your people, processes, and technology needs to be an organizationwide initiative. From the ground floor to the C-suite, it takes a sincere commitment to safeguard your business from the considerable and prolific risks posed by cybercriminals. Our cybersecurity experts will help you adopt a proactive and comprehensive approach that will protect the integrity of your systems and data.

Data and analytics

Data is quickly becoming the most important asset in making strategic business decisions. However, realizing the value in your data is about more than building dashboards. Our team of enterprise architects, engineers, developers, analysts, and scientists start with the end in mind and help you define, develop, and execute a clear strategy for your analytics program. We help you deliver quick results while also building for scale and creating lasting analytics capabilities.

Enterprise software and ERP consulting
Selecting and implementing the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) system or other enterprise application solution can be a challenging and costly process. It’s also foundational for the scalability of your overall application environment and supporting your evolving strategic needs. No matter where you are in the application life cycle, we have the knowledge and expertise to help you reduce risk and optimize the value of your investment.
Managed IT

Regardless of whether you’re adding more capacity or skills to complement or supplement your team, considering completely outsourcing, or bringing in infrastructure project-specific resources, our award-winning team can help you achieve your goals. We specialize in providing cloud networking and modernization services, including support, engineering, and migrations. Whether on a one-time basis or a more sustained support model, we can help improve the scalability, cost-efficiency, and agility of your IT operations.

Merger and acquisition technology services

Without proper due diligence, investors can find themselves the new owners of major infrastructure and software investment projects or vulnerable to significant cybersecurity risks. Our M&A advisors can provide holistic, turn-key diligence or more targeted assessments, helping you ensure you have both a clear understanding of current gaps and a plan for executing on plans for technology systems, staffing, support, processes, policies, security, and more.

Solutions and strategic alliances
We maintain strategic alliances with leading technology providers and are always evaluating and expanding our relationships and software-specific expertise. This helps us ensure we can support you in making informed decisions and accelerating time-to-value.

Client Experience

Industry experts providing customized, collaborative engagements

When you engage Plante Moran to be your technology partner, you get more than a software solution or consulting services. First and foremost, we listen; understanding your vision and needs is our first priority. We go beyond the expected, delivering an approach that’s customized, results-driven, and, most importantly, personal. People are at the heart of everything we do, and we go out of our way to develop relationships with our clients and deliver improvement and value creation.

Sean McBride, our technology consulting practice leader, knows this is a differentiator. “We describe ourselves as a ‘people-first’ firm. What that means is that our solutions aren’t centered around selling a software and moving on. Our process is a science and an art that starts with competent, devoted consultants with a passion for shaping technology change, one project at a time. We want to engage your entire organization, helping decision-makers see the business value clearly and ensuring that the people using technology understand it, feel supported, and see a positive impact on their day-to-day. We know that people lead technology change, and involving people in the process with care and consideration leads to better outcomes for our clients.”

Our clients say

We hired Plante Moran to perform an ERP assessment to develop a list of detailed requirements for a replacement system. They listened to our needs, shared valuable industry insights, helped us prioritize issues, and provided recommendations on improvements to make when implementing the new system. They brought in experts to share best practices on governance, chart of accounts redesign, and business processes optimization.

We then engaged them to help with the selection process. With in-depth knowledge of the ERP marketplace, and an objective viewpoint of the pros and cons of each solution, they helped us evaluate the options and find a solution to fit our unique needs.

We view Plante Moran as a trusted partner and have used them as a sounding board to help us with change management as we worked through the process. They’re very professional, collaborative, and they communicate complex concepts in a relatable way. Our team and our county administration enjoys working with them, and we have the comfort of knowing they’ve helped set us on a path for a successful implementation.

I would like to personally thank the Plante Moran team for the technology consulting services they provided to Peerless Steel. In a difficult situation they did not waver and remained completely objective. They shared their expertise, insight, and experience in such a candid and forthright manner that it immediately put our stockholder group at ease. And this allowed our shareholders to completely trust in their advice and recommendations. The IT assessment that they provided helped us to easily avoid a disaster and probably saved us many millions of dollars. Peerless Steel could not be more pleased with the work that Plante Moran has provided to us on this engagement and over the many years that we have been a client.
