IT and business project implementations are becoming more complex and interwoven with the rapid advancements in technology globally. Organizations need help in building their capacity to deliver the right projects on time, with the right benefits. A substantial hurdle that organizations fail to navigate over in their projects is that of on-time delivery, closely followed by meeting the planned objectives and aligning them with stakeholder expectations. Companies need to understand that in order to ensure success, each phase of a project requires meticulous attention and planning. However, most organizations do not have the specialized resources to guarantee this.

At Affility, our consultants are experts in all areas of IT project management and are driven by a keen desire to help our clients achieve optimal output through project efficacy. Our IT project advisory services are aimed to ensure your projects are conceptualized, guided, and delivered on time, every time. Our tried and tested methodologies ensure minimal risk of project failure through streamlined process definition, helping our clients unlock the true potential of their business.

If history has shown us anything, it has been the unparalleled success of those who lead and establish market trends over those who follow such pioneers. This is not to say that all businesses have to be trendsetters – but the right steps have to be taken at the right time, within the parameters of the economic conditions at the time, in order to ensure the success of any project.

Our team of experts supports organizations by guiding them at each stage of an IT project from initiation to closure – so no matter which stage of a project you are in, you will be in safe hands.

Some predictable oversights in the early stages of a project that can result in failures are:

  • Weak business requirement definition and lack of proper project scope
  • Unsuitable and non-futuristic technology adoptions
  • Vague, untimely, and ineffective project initiation
  • The lack of proper quality reviews and checks in place
  • Weak project governance strategies
  • Lack of clarity in roles and responsibilities
  • Misalignment of the skills, capabilities, and costs required at the outset of the project

We can help you with:

  • Identifying and documenting your business requirements
  • Creation of Request for Proposal (RFP)/ Request for Information (RFI)
  • Holistic and futuristic technology choices
  • Implementation of best practices throughout the IT project(s)
  • ERP implementation advisory and support
  • Articulation of project and/or program strategy
  • Risk assessment and mitigation plans
  • Unbiased vendor evaluation and ERP selection
  • Managing a project or a collection of projects throughout their lifecycles
  • Managing simple or complex programs and portfolios
  • Ensuring benefits realization
  • Formulating a strong project governance framework
  • Defining clear roles and responsibilities

During the execution stages of your IT project, it is critical to note that while there may be differences in the characteristics of each project, there will also be similarities. To aid the optimization of the return on investment, companies should aim to design and sustain an environment that aligns and enhances business processes and technology to achieve process effectiveness, cost reductions, proficient compliance management, and reliable program governance. Because the consultants at Affility have experience across multiple business domains, we bring this knowledge to your table and guide you to implement the best practices specific to your industry and business.

Within our dedicated IT project advisory services, we can provide you with highly customized, scalable, and cost-effective project management options to assist you at any stage of your project lifecycle. This means that you can bring us on board before the initiation of a project to ensure that the wheels are set in motion, or at a later stage if you require specialist expertise to recover a failing project. Whether you need a specialized IT project manager, an experienced program manager, or simply the opinion of an unbiased domain expert, we can provide you with the right guidance towards a successful implementation. We deliver the insight and precision to impart you with confidence in the long-term potential of your project. Our professional consultants are skilled in various tried-and-tested tools, techniques, and methodologies to execute successful project delivery. If your ultimate goal is to ensure that your investment results in a quantifiably beneficial outcome, we can help you pave the way towards this aspiration.
