Dennis Adams Associates specialised ICT Management Advisory Services
Dennis Adams Associates provides specialised ICT Management Advisory Services to help medium and large organisations deliver the true value of IT in Production.
Many IT solutions fail to deliver their expected performance benefits or cost savings because the handover from development to production (i.e. building to operations) has not been given sufficient focus, leading to higher maintenance costs.
We help organisations derive true value by advising on the whole system life cycle, specifically focusing on the handover to operations, and improving service and problem management, thus reducing support costs.
The Public Sector is under ever increasing pressure to provide continuingly improved functionality and greater security while at the same time reducing costs. The growth of Social Media and BYOD expectations bring additional challenges to ICT Management.
ICT Managers are expected to meet all these demands and reduce costs at the same time. This requires them to address a very wide range of diverse and inter-dependant strategic and practical issues; hence they frequently find it difficult to know where to start.
As a UK-Based Consultancy, we provide skilled advisors who draw on many decades of experience in both Management and IT. We work within a proven strategic framework specifically focusing on the challenges of IT production (IT Infrastructure and Operations).
We bring a collaborative approach to working; we take time to understand clients’ unique challenges and then pragmatically applying those elements of best practice that are appropriate to their needs.
Our consultants all have strong experience as practitioners in IT and General Management, including Executive Management roles, mergers and acquisitions, product management, IT Architecture, Leadership and IT Strategy.
Some of our consultancy success stories include:
- More accountable and responsive ICT organisation, with demonstrable value-add.
- Better utilisation and ROI of IT Infrastructure Software
- Faster and more efficient internal processes and practices.
- More cost-effect infrastructure strategy and roadmaps.
- Improved Stakeholder management, and reduction in supplier costs.
Consultants are skilled in industry-standard management frameworks, including OGC best practices, PRINCE2, Six Sigma, ITIL, MSP and COBIT. In addition, we have specialist skills in developing people and teams, including Birkman personality profiling, individual and team coaching.
We have worked with organisations as diverse as Banks, Insurance companies, retail, airline, Broadcast Media, Manufacturing, Software as a Service (SaaS) Suppliers, Hosting companies, as well as Central, Regional and Local Government.
