Delivering results with better people, process and technology… Now that’s smart.TM
While it is technically feasible to implement technology projects within a few short weeks, it is often the people side of technology that determines whether or not a project succeeds or fails. Visible sponsorship, effective project planning, experienced IT professionals and aligned stakeholders all contribute to a successful IT transformation.
