Types of IT Assessments

IT Assessments help organizations like yours, no matter how large or small, gain a better understanding of their current IT environment to better align to key business goals and objectives.

Dataprise offers a variety of IT assessments to meet your business needs, including:

Business-Aligned Information Technology Assessment (BA-ITA)

Our Business-Aligned Information Technology Assessment (BA-ITA) is designed to evaluate the objectives and operational requirements of your organization as well as the technology infrastructure, applications, and support resources that serve your employees, clients, and partners.

The BA-ITA looks at how your organization leverages technology, how it integrates with your business processes, and how it is managed and governed. Once we gain a deep understanding of your objectives and challenges, we develop a plan to improve business outcomes by aligning your business with current and emerging technologies.

Our IT Organizational Assessment analyzes how IT services are delivered throughout your organization. This includes the assessment of the current IT organizational structure, available resources, required functions, and existing roles that help meet delivery needs. This assessment incorporates industry best practices and business requirements to identify gaps in your delivery model, including such areas as training and development, succession planning, and workforce planning.

Our recommendations will identify the effective sourcing strategies to ensure that your IT organization can provide optimal service delivery for your business needs.

Financial IT Assessments

Our Financial IT Assessments evaluate your current IT expenses and the areas to which funds are allocated. This helps us understand the drivers for your IT spend and how they align with your business activity.

We assess your IT spend in relation to company size, industry sector, revenue generation, and support, and then compare these results to industry benchmarks and IT financial models. Additionally, we assess the budgeting process, spend authority, and decision policies to help you better understand how IT financial controls are applied.

Our financial IT assessments evaluate spend in the following areas:

  • Cloud management
  • Service delivery and resourcing
  • Information security
  • Vendor management
  • Infrastructure
  • Software and applications
  • Supporting services

After our analysis is complete, we provide a comprehensive report outlining your current IT financial state, alignment to best practice and industry benchmarks, and potential areas to optimize your budget and IT spend.
