Our IT Assessment and Planning Services for your business is the answer
Envision your Organization’s Technology Goals
Because your technology plan will become a detailed, written document that connects your organization’s current use and future needs of technology to achieve your organization’s mission, it is critical to begin this planning activity with your Mission Statement and Services. This Statement will be included in your Technology Plan and will act as your compass when moving forward with Technology.
Assess your Current Technology
We begin our technology assessment with a complete inventory of your environment, including all hardware, software, connectivity and peripherals. Our inventory also includes communication and premise security equipment that may have network demands. From this beginning, we develop a comprehensive understanding of the technology required to meet your goals.
Assess Internal Practices
We will help you assess your organization’s current internal policies and procedures in the areas of technology training, security and disaster recovery. Taking the next step, Alerio reviews your business processes to ensure the technology is aligned with your business needs.
