Consulting

In addition to our wide range of technology solutions and services, Transputec provide consultants with specialist skills across a variety of domains to help you successfully realise the full potential of your technology and ensure that your IT operation effectively, efficiently and securely supports the continued growth of your business.

Our consultancy practice consists of technology experts employed by Transputec – those top-tier technologists who’ve been hands-on delivering solutions on behalf of our customers for many years, working with the leading vendors and technology stacks – and a number of partner organisations who are specialist in their fields; including Strategy & Planning, Business Transformation, Project & Programme Management, IT Operations Management, Supply Chain Management, Enterprise Architecture, Cloud Integration and IT Security Consulting.

The flexibility of being able to draft in experts from our extended network enables us to structure an engagement specifically tailored to meet your needs, without us needing to maintain those capabilities ourselves. This means that as well as you getting access to the right people whenever you need them, the rates are significantly lower than what you’d pay if you approached many other consulting organisations without any compromise in quality.

Our Approach in Consulting

Whilst we value structure and process, and believe that there is a right way to engage with our clients, we do not deploy an “out-of-the-box” generic methodology to overcome your challenges.

Experience has taught us that we must remain flexible and responsive to the nuances of every customer, recognising and embracing their individuality. Whilst fundamentally many businesses share the same challenges, and best practices are (by definition) a blue-print for doing things properly, that doesn’t mean the same solution applies in the same way to everyone.

We believe that technology supports and enables an organisation’s strategy and helps the organisation differentiate and create value. Our role as consultants is to help you ensure that that you continue to optimise the benefits of IT in a secure, efficient and effective manner.

Focus and Challenge

Irrespective of the nature of the challenge, the first step in our engagement model is to listen to our client to understand their objectives and to ensure we’re clear as to what they’re trying to achieve and why.

We take the time to understand your business and drivers for change, and to listen to and understand the specific problem you’re encountering.

Often much of this part of the engagement can be conducted before you’ve financially committed to anything with us to help develop a shared understanding of the objectives. For example, our cyber security consultants actively participate in the pre-sale cycle to ensure that we arrive at a clear statement of intent and an agreed route forwards.

From here we’re in a position to focus in on the real issues and challenge the thinking. Whether it’s a low-level technology-specific problem or a higher-level strategy question that needs addressing, this is where we delve into the detail to understand what’s really happening today and how that supports the goals and objectives of the organisation.

Identify Solutions

Depending on the nature of the engagement this can take many forms. From modelling processes and mapping organisational structures to installing monitoring tools to capture capacity, utilisation and performance – our consultants will identify the approach and appropriate toolset to use in the earliest part of the engagement.

Solution options and recommendations will become apparent through this stage of the engagement. We will work with you to explore these and ensure that any firm recommendations are aligned to the organisation’s goals and objectives. Again, the nature of the recommendations will vary greatly depending on the type of engagement…but whatever is suggested, rest assured that our team has the knowledge and expertise to lead you to a successful outcome.
