“As the corporate technology function continues to evolve, IT and business leaders are increasingly looking for strategic guidance to reduce cost, improve value, and protect the competitive leverage that IT can provide"
Malvern, PA (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Disruptive technologies such as cloud computing and the “as-a-service” model for software, infrastructure and platforms has led to fundamental changes in how IT is organized, managed and delivered. WGroup, a boutique management consulting firm, announced an expansion today to accommodate this shift and fill the growing demand for WGroup services in this area. WGroup’s changes are the direct result of this disruptive transformation in IT, and the acceptance and demand on the part of business and IT leaders for guidance towards embracing this transformation.
“This is an unparalleled time of transformation,” said Harry Wallaesa, President and CEO, WGroup. “As the corporate technology function continues to evolve, IT and business leaders are increasingly looking for strategic guidance to reduce cost, improve value, and protect the competitive leverage that IT can provide. WGroup’s composition of highly experienced strategy experts and former CIOs are uniquely qualified to help both business and IT leaders understand how to capitalize on these new technology trends.”
The trend of technology delivered as a service has had an enormous impact on IT organizations in every industry. The reality that IT services can be delivered to anywhere in the globe via the “Cloud” has accelerated the commoditization of infrastructure. Ubiquitous access of IT services has lessened business dependency on internal IT and shifted the IT organization’s role from process excellence to innovation. As an example - in the battle for customer intimacy, analytics, real-time decision making, and agility become IT’s new priorities.
WGroup has responded to this new model by launching new thinking about IT governance, vendor management, IT strategic planning, outsourcing, and IT service management. “Our clients trust us to work collaboratively to create strategy, execute on new service delivery models and manage the extended enterprise of internal and external service providers,” said Wallaesa.
In conjunction with WGroup’s increased focus on the new services model, WGroup recently announced the launch of a new forward-thinking brand strategy, identity, website (thinkwgroup.com) and new tag line: Drive Your Business.
