Thought leadership from SAI to accelerate your performance

IT Strategy and Operations

SAI’s IT Strategy and Operations practice helps clients build better, faster, more effective IT capabilities that enable growth and enhance their competitive advantage.

In today’s marketplace, expectations around IT are higher than ever as organizations are expected to provide robust services 24/7 without interruption, while also maintaining maximum security and regulatory compliance.


IT Org Design and Development

Good IT organizations are able to keep pace with a rapidly changing marketplace; great IT organizations thrive within it. Providing maximum return on your IT investment begins with effective alignment of staff against service delivery requirements. SAI’s IT Org Design consultants guide clients toward ensuring that their IT organizations are continuously building and deploying capabilities and capacity to foster growth and manage change.


M&A IT Assessment and Planning

Given its central role in business operations, technology can make or break any M&A transaction. SAI’s experienced M&A consultants help buyers navigate all phases of the process pre- and post-merger: assessing the IT capabilities within a potential transaction, designing the IT organization of the merged entity and facilitating the transition.

"It has been a pleasure working with the Systems Alliance team. Their strong technical knowledge, professionalism and attention to details resulted in a quality product, delivered to us on time and on budget."

Malik Rahman, Chief Information Officer, University of the Pacific

Business Continuity

Too often, IT leaders equate Business Continuity with disaster planning, but research shows that only about 20% of outages are attributable to natural disasters. Fortunately, however, planning for more commonplace business interruptions like back-up failures or data retention problems often works to limit the impact of natural disasters if and when they do occur. SAI helps clients create a truly sustainable business platform by creating plans and processes that ensure the continued availability of critical IT staff, data, applications and infrastructure.

Project and Portfolio Management

Knowing how best to select, manage, deliver and measure the results of numerous, on-going IT projects is one of the fundamental concerns of any organization. From complete enterprise IT Transformation efforts to more tactical projects focused on improving existing tools and processes, our IT Optimization consultants will support your team with deep experience, an established set of tools and methods and a persistent approach to effecting change.
