Market Challenges

Demands on the IT function are increasing. They include the rapid pace of technology changes, the increasing need for support within the organisation, monitoring and meeting Service Level Agreements, managing data security and finding (and retaining) suitable talent.

Lack of expertise

Lack of expert guidance

Without expert guidance, IT decisions can be made based on latest buzzwords, rather than what is best for your organisation. It is important that any IT project streamlines, secures and enhances your operation rather than distracts from it. 

Expensive management

Expensive management

A complex IT estate is expensive and arduous to maintain and manage in-house. You have to pay for the hardware and the people to manage it, as well as for repercussions from problems caused by hardware failure or human error.

Not future-proof

Not future-proof

In-house platforms often suffer from a lack of agility, flexibility and scalability. Teams struggle to quickly and easily manipulate their set-up to suit the organisation from where it is today and where it wants to be in the future. 

Difficult integration

Difficult integration

Relying on older platforms can make integrating with the latest technologies difficult. Modern applications may not be compatible with your legacy environment. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) products could end up complicating rather than streamlining your estate. 

Ensuring security

Ensuring security

A strong cyber security posture is becoming difficult to achieve and maintain as attacks are more prevalent. When your platforms are on-premise, they are solely your responsibility and all security concerns reside with you, not with specialists. 



Employees are increasingly working remotely, in varied locations. Your applications need to be supported by platforms that can facilitate mobile working with high availability, security and connectivity.
