About eValue-IT

 eValue-IT is a strategic consulting company focusing on helping organisations optimise their returns on their information systems investments.

Any organisation to be successful must have a measurable return for the investments that it makes. regardless of what type of organisation it is. Businesses must deliver value back to their stakeholders, usually in the form of  sustainable profits, Government departments implement policy and are to be held accountable for the effectiveness of services that they run to achieve those policy goals. Even a not-for-profit trust, charity or community organisation is assessed by the quality of services and the support it gives to the broader community.

 

Few organisations today would challenge the need to participate in the information age. At a minimum organisations and their employs communicate via email, and many organisations have a web site, a web presence on the Internet. However many organisation, whether big or small, find themselves constantly struggling with IT, its cost and the quality of the services that IT delivers.

 

Many organisations view IT as a singular cost of doing business, and it is certainly true that to achieve the best returns from IT it is necessary to maintain a relentless drive to minimise the cost of IT to the organisation. However IT savvy organisations not only look at the costs of IT but also look at the opportunities. Savvy organisations look to directly match the portfolio of  available IT services to the organisations business objectives and portfolio. The result, the allocation of ICT investments appropriate for a company's circumstances.
