IT Consulting


In most projects, the improvement of existing IT systems and infrastructure plays an important role in increasing the efficiency of the national counterpart organization. Improving IT systems is often synonymous with the replacement of existing software by a new product and implies changes in the respective organization and its business processes.
Because of the complex IT market and the large-scale consequences of related decisions, the selection of an optimal IT system pose particular challenges for many organizations. Hence, they often seek advice in identifying the IT system which suits their needs best, and assistance during its implementation

IT consultants assist clients in analyzing existing processes and systems, and in defining the terms of reference for products and services to be purchased. It is therefore indispensable that the provided service is highly competent, is not bound to a specific product in the first place, and is based on profound experience of the IT market. Moreover, consultants may also assist the organization during software implementation.
The combination of different skills is crucial for the IT consulting. First, the consultant requires a detailed knowledge of the complete IT sector including IT infrastructure, hardware, operating systems, databases, standard applications and programming tools. In addition, in-depth understanding of business administration processes is required. The third component are strong communication skills, as the IT consultant has to establish an effective link between the different departments of the client’s organization, and also between the client and the software vendor.
