NexusTek’s IT consulting services can augment your in-house IT resources in a variety of ways. Many IT departments are understaffed and overwhelmed. Often only having time to operate reactively rather than proactively, IT staff may struggle to allocate the bandwidth to conduct long-term strategic IT planning or complete projects necessary to stay level with changing technologies. Predictably, IT staff who are overworked and overwhelmed are likely to develop burnout, leading to turnover that sets your business even further behind in its efforts to keep up with the constant changes of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
In contrast, an IT consulting company has the bandwidth and expertise necessary to appropriately devise a strategic IT plan that jumpstarts or enhances your organization’s digital transformation journey. IT consulting companies can recommend scalable solutions that future-proof your business amid the changing tides of technology. NexusTek’s IT consulting team complements your in-house IT team, delivering the insights and expertise your business needs to actualize technology objectives that will keep your IT at the top of the market.
Yes, most definitely, and in fact, NexusTek often provides IT consulting to companies that already possess executive level technology leadership. As most CIOs undoubtedly recognize, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is rapidly advancing technologies and business practices across all markets; according to a Dynatrace study, 61% of CIOs state their IT environment changes every minute or less, and 32% say it changes every second.
With the fast pace of advancing technology and shifting compliance standards, even experienced CIOs find it difficult to stay abreast of all the changes. A survey by Vanson Bourne found that 56% of CIOs are almost never able to complete all their company IT needs. Partnering with NexusTek for IT consulting helps you keep pace by giving your company additional technology leadership that always remains faithful to the strategic vision your own CIO has developed. In other words, our IT consultants will not “step on your toes” when it comes to technology consulting.
Our IT consultants understand the importance of maintaining a solid cyber security posture and can assist your company to keep pace with the constantly changing security landscape. With cybercriminals growing more sophisticated each day and new threats stemming from emerging trends like Internet of Things (IoT) and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) work practices, companies need to work harder than ever to stay ahead of security threats. Businesses are dependent upon expert cyber security and cyber resilience management not only for their own company’s security but also for national security.
In addition to identifying gaps in your cyber security, NexusTek’s technology consultants can also create an IT roadmap to cyber security and cyber resilience for your business. Our vCIOs and certified engineers can provide cyber security and cyber resilience assessment, strategic planning, and expert advice on IT security measures and procedures. In addition, our IT consultants can help your business develop or improve its incident response plan. We dive deep into your business operations, goals, and needs to recommend best-in-class technology solutions that will fortify and further your company.
NexusTek’s IT consulting team can assist with creating or enhancing your business’ cloud strategy, with assessments and resulting recommendations to address your cloud computing needs at any stage. At the most foundational level, our IT consultants can provide a cloud readiness assessment to help your business plan for cloud migration to reduce your on-premises IT footprint. Our cloud experts can also assist you to understand the comparative benefits of private, public, hybrid, and multi-cloud solutions, equipping you to select the optimal cloud environments and service types for your workloads.
Our IT consultants can also provide assessment and recommendations related to modernizing your IT infrastructure, which helps you to identify cloud-based applications to improve productivity and collaboration. As remote and hybrid work become the norm for more and more businesses, our IT consultants often assist with devising and implementing cloud-based solutions that allow employees to work from anywhere. Finally, our IT consulting team can even assist with identifying cloud-based infrastructure that best aligns with your company’s strategic business goals, helping you to get the most strategic value out of your technology investment.
IT consulting services can help to increase your company’s profitability in a number of ways. Our experts can conduct thorough assessments of your IT spend, identifying unnecessary licensing, higher-than-average device or user support costs, and areas of IT inefficiency. Based on the findings of the assessment, our experts will provide immediately executable steps that your company can take to make more efficient use of your technology budget.
NexusTek’s IT consultants can also recommend and implement business continuity and disaster recovery solutions, which help your business to avoid costly downtime and data loss. Furthermore, our IT consulting team can assist with developing cloud computing strategies, which reduce costs by reducing your need to purchase and maintain on-premises infrastructure. In fact, McKinsey & Company found that implementation of cloud computing can reduce IT overhead costs by 30-40%.
IT consulting and managed services work hand-in-hand, but there are subtle differences between them. NexusTek’s IT consultants evaluate your business needs and goals and make tailored recommendations to your IT environment to address current concerns and future plans. While IT consulting services are focused on achieving specific IT goals, managed services are delivered on an ongoing basis to ensure that designated IT systems are maintained and updated as needed to function optimally.
NexusTek offers IT consulting services with its experienced engineers but also delivers fully outsourced or co-managed services, from end-user services and managed IT to cloud environments, cyber security, and more, making NexusTek your answer for end-to-end IT services, including expert technology advice, trustworthy implementation and maintenance, and passionate customer service.
