Service Portfolio

it consulting services

Ascendance IT Consulting Services are tailored to assist the SME and even larger organizations in all IT Management aspects. We are NOT an IT Support provider, or a supplier of IT hardware, we purely help you with advice regarding those important IT questions which may have an impact on your business. Let’s illustrate using some examples:

Proposal or Solution Evaluation Example

Example 1: You already have an IT service provider. This provider is proposing some new changes to your environment and you just need a second opinion. You don’t want to move to another supplier, you just want to know if their proposal is beneficial to your business.

 

IT Procurement Example

Example 2: You are faced with an IT procurement decision. You received several different proposals, which seem to be the same solution, but with substantial price differences. You just want someone who can explain the differences in plain non-tech language.

 

Ad Hoc Advice Example

Example 3: You are busy buying some IT related product/service, but something tells you the supplier is not completely open. You just want someone else’s view.

CIO On-Demand Example

Example 4: Your business has grown significantly over the past number of years (or perhaps months). You believe that investing in the right IT solutions (hardware, software and services) can propel your business growth even further. You actually need an IT Manager, or in fact a CIO (Chief Information Officer), but you still do not have the critical mass to appoint a full-time CIO or IT Manager. We play that role and become your “CIO On-Demand”. Contact us for an IT Manager On Demand Pretoria based.
