STRATEGIC IT PLANNING

Strategic IT Planning is a collaborative process we take with clients to understand their business needs and goals. This allows us to align the IT budget appropriately based on your priorities as an organization.

FIVE NINES STRATEGIC PLANNING

HOW WE DO IT

One of our first steps in our partnership engagements is to take a full assessment of your environment and document all of our findings through our onboarding process. With this information, we have a great baseline of your current IT infrastructure health & risks. We then compile this information to provide recommendations on your IT strategy based on your equipment lifecycles and IT deficiencies that pose the biggest downtime risk to your organization.

The second part of our process entails meeting with your leadership team to review your organization’s goals & priorities. Using this combined method of information, we can compile a comprehensive IT strategy & roadmap that we’ll use for the next 3 years.

ACCOUNTABILITY

FIVE NINES TAKES ACCOUNTABILITY

Your Account Director and Primary Engineer are responsible for learning and understanding your business & IT environment. Together, they can provide insights from both perspectives to consult on how your business goals impact future IT decisions & strategy.

WHY IT WORKS

FIVE NINES TAKES ACCOUNTABILITY

Understanding your strategic IT plan and vision for your company allows us to have a comprehensive IT budget & plan. Through this process we avoid spending money on IT equipment or software that isn’t scalable or doesn’t meet the long term needs of the organization.

Within the first 90 days, your Account Director will request a meeting with your leadership team to review your top priorities & goals. During this session, you should be prepared to answer questions about potential growth & long term plans, end-user challenges, and your experiences & pain points with technology. After understanding your unique needs, Five Nines will work to incorporate those initiatives into the overall strategic IT plan.
