Conosco takes a holistic approach to your business technology. We work closely with your business to determine how technology transformation will help you achieve your business goals. We then break goals into smaller, achievable phases and systematically plan, implement, and review as needed to reach company objectives.
We strongly believe that Information Technology is the backbone of organisations, which is why Conosco offers all clients across London our strategic consulting services, allowing them to plan and visualise the next steps in the development of their business. Conosco takes a unique ‘Business First’ approach. This means we always start by understanding your business, what is holding you back, and what it is you are looking to achieve.
Whether it’s planning for future business transformation or discovering improved ways of implementing solutions that are in place, Conosco’s consulting services are available to clients across SMEs in London and England. By applying our hands-on experience of deploying, managing and securing IT, we can guide our clients through the right technology journey.
We are firmly convinced that effective IT is based on strategic thinking. Technology touches every part of the business, and, as such, infrastructure, systems and applications not only have to work together, but inherently support each other. We help clients set strategies in motion that unify business and technology infrastructures, generate growth, better customer interactions and enable market competitive advantage. Our strategic planning process includes and fosters a healthy dialogue at board level which helps provide a meaningful buy-in for the overall technology vision, securing future investment in transformation projects and fulfilling joint responsibility of enhancing financial performance and creating higher value.
Our technology roadmap outlines when, why, and what technology solutions will be implemented to help the organisation move forward while avoiding costly mistakes. We work closely with our clients to create an action plan that addresses their evolving requirements, align their systems to the business, and pinpoints the capabilities they need. We manage the project end-to-end as part of our technology roadmap service.
