Information Technology Roadmap for Professional Service Firms provides professional service firms with a pocket-sized guide for a journey into the underutilized world of advanced IT solutions. This book is the first in a series of practical books designed to show how non-technical business owners in different industries can confidently expand their IT infrastructure beyond support for email and surfing the web.
This first book examines the daily activities within a typical professional services firm. The reader is guided through a five step approach to show how IT can be used to increase the speed, improve the quality and reduce the expenses for these activities. This approach can also be used by solution providers eager to define the financial value of their solutions and establish a strategic relationship with their customers. The book includes high-level profiles of solutions developed by Microsoft and its partners. These profiles can be used to jumpstart the development of a personalized IT Roadmap that fits technology to the business rather than squeezing the business into the technology.
Simple, colorful, and practical... Information Technology Roadmap for Professional Service Firms is a high density management handbook for professionals interested in making the most out of their IT investments.
