Evaluation & Advisory Services

The world of IT moves fast, and there are so many choices in any given situation. It’s this speed and complexity that attract people to technology. But it also can be maddening, especially if you don’t have all the information or expertise required to make the right call. Smart decisions are a result of a sound approach, and for IT that means bringing the right data, tools, process and people to the table.

Making Tough Decisions Easier

Organizations that view IT as a strategic enabler evaluate projects and architectures differently than those who run IT like a cost center. Look at the big picture. With a long-term IT strategy in place, decisions are evaluated based on the broader value and impact to the organization.

How We Can Help

IT Strategy Services

Business Technology Alignment Framework

Choice is good. But making the right choices can be a challenge. Software Shell provides a Business Technology Alignment Framework that can be applied to multiple situations. The framework was created to ensure that technology solutions maximize opportunities for true strategic benefit. As an outcome, you can expect that your decisions are accelerated, informed and tied directly to your business priorities within scenarios such as:

  • Technology Selection & Design
  • Feature Requirements Development
  • Project Prioritization
  • Business Case Development
  • Vendor Selection / RFP Development Services

Software Shell’s Business Technology Alignment Framework allows organizations to:

  • Ensure actionable decisions based on your business needs and IT subject matter expertise
  • Evaluate available options based on “what if” scenarios (before capital outlay)
  • Provide direct and measurable critical success factors (CSFs) into projects
  • Apply the decision framework on an ongoing basis to ensure longer term alignment
  • Make strategic decisions based on long-term strategies

Desktop Virtualization Viability Assessment
Desktop virtualization enables new levels of IT security, ease-of-management and cost-savings. But it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution.

Unlike other assessments, Software Shell’s Desktop Virtualization Viability Assessment avoids the pitfalls of an “all-or-nothing” approach when creating your virtualization roadmap. Instead, we develop an in-depth view of your diverse user-groups and chart out the best course of action for each one.
