How

ICT Strategy

SKS & Partners provides guidance and advice to its customers, a vital part of this guidance is fitting the right IT components in the right place.

How is the present IT legacy prepared for a rapidly evolving world where competition makes full use of IT commoditization to build and operate at a fraction of the cost of traditional IT systems, is a question that has been successfully addressed by SKS & Partners during several assignments.

Our view is that the best solutions need to be tailored to the situation of the customer and often require an architecture that enables for an integration of Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions with existing legacy systems.

Our solutions are always based on a good definition of the business requirements which are translated detailed functional specifications and several IT architectural solutions.

It also develop a common project language by defining milestones, metrics and KPIs so that everyone is on the same wave length. Thus creating an harmonized and efficient the management of all included projects.

Interim Management

Postal operators, logistics companies and governmental authorities that recognise a need to adapt to the fast-changing environment and who are underperforming or are healthy with challenged divisions, often need additional experienced change management support to improve operational or financial performance.
