What it is
An IT Assessment is a systematic process to acquire an accurate and thorough picture of an IT Environment.  This process typically consists of evaluating the people, processes and systems of an IT environment to identify gaps between current conditions and desired conditions. 

Why it’s important
The IT Assessment is designed to help make strategic IT decisions and recommendations and ensure the IT environment is providing value to the business.  Company Management may feel that there are areas where IT is not providing value to the organization.  They may perceive that IT is overspending, unreliable, exposing the organization to excessive risk or simply has problems.  The results of the IT Assessment help to justify, validate and direct future activities.

Why SL
Our assessment approach is based on accepted best practice IT frameworks, such as ITIL and COBIT.  Assessments are performed by qualified IT Business Analysts and Technicians.  We will work with your organization to set an appropriate scope, depth and target areas for each assessment.  Each assessment results in the delivery of a strategy document which summarizes assessment information and recommendations.   The project lifecycle for a typical Assessment is summarized below:

  • Planning and Scheduling Activities
  • Information Interviews and Documentation Gathering
  • Analysis and Assessment of Gathered Information
  • Documentation of Findings and Recommendations in a Strategy Summary Report
