IT and Business: Happy Together

Develop a Technology Strategy that Powers your Bottom Line

Technology is constantly evolving. And it’s more difficult than ever for organizations to keep up. As a result, IT priorities are often out of sync with business strategies. A stitched together infrastructure can’t provide the value that growing businesses seek, and all too often, good IT investments fail to pay off due to flawed implementation and/or cumbersome organizational processes.

If your enterprise technology isn’t fully aligned with your business strategy, or if you’re not making optimum use of the technology you currently have, it is a lot harder to achieve success.

CohnReznick can help. Our CIO Advisory team is designed to support C-Suite executives at the highest strategic level. We’re taking the expertise and knowledge from our experience advising numerous Fortune 2000 CIOs and using it to help middle-market and high-growth enterprises.

A Business-First Approach

No technology strategy is worth following unless it’s driven by the needs of the business. So our CIO Advisory team starts by immersing ourselves in your business – your strategic plan, product/market mix, processes, key performance indicators (KPIs) and business drivers, short- and long-term growth goals, and key internal challenges.

Using your business strategy as a lens, we examine your current technology infrastructure and roadmap. Where is technology supporting your business goals, and where is it an impediment? What can we do to make an immediate impact?

Improved Efficiency is Just the Beginning

The right IT systems can certainly help growing companies achieve organizational efficiency by streamlining and unifying workflows, heightening collaboration, and boosting the speed of process completion. But they can also help companies align business processes across functional areas to

  • Improve visibility and forecasting
  • Enhance customer relationships through a better understanding of customer needs and a coordinated online/offline customer experience
  • Reduce the overall complexity and number of IT systems so that leadership can focus on the business

IT and business: when in lock-step, they make a true dynamic duo.
