Information Technology Planning


Strategy and Consulting

Many organizations have tremendous investments in their technology infrastructure. Prairie Technology Solutions Group ensures problems and issues are thoroughly understood before solution options are explored and that existing technology investments are leveraged as much as possible.

These same organizations have found it difficult to move from the IT planning stage to the implementation stage. By addressing critical success factors, our team of professionals help organizations receive the most from their IT investment to achieve the highest level of productivity and expected benefit.

At the conclusion of a Technology Planning engagement, the client will possess a clear picture of their existing situation, and a roadmap for implementing critical technology initiatives that optimize the use of scarce capital, technology and human resources.

Technology Assessment

This is usually a precursor to technology acquisition and requires an assessment of all aspects of the technology including performance, support requirements, extensibility, adaptability, and total cost of installation and operation. Our deliverable is a high quality report detailing the findings of our hands-on inspection of every aspect of your data environment: hardware, software, policies and procedures. It’s an information rich document that allows business leaders to make better decisions. Sample reports are available on request. This provides the objective information which can then be used to determine whether an acquisition is economically justified. The Technology Assessment considers the following:

  • The condition and reliability of the infrastructure
  • The technical architecture of systems
  • The overall approach to technology risk management
  • Existing processes and productivity vs. industry best practices
