Our agile practitioners work at the visionary end of transformational technology change. We use innovative approaches to maximise the business value and accelerate your returns on investment.
Technology transformation at pace
We help you find strategies and ways of working to help you make high-value decisions - faster. This includes getting the best from automation, AI, low-code and modern cloud strategies.
Our expertise in development, security and operations helps you understand how mature and sustainable your DevOps or DevSecOps are. We’ll then help you refine your existing capability or define the roles and skills you’d need to build one.
Tech product owners and scrum masters
We want to set you up for the long term by embedding our people into your teams to pass on their expertise. Our product owners can translate business strategies into technical requirements and communicate the value to the business. Our scrum masters will help to refine your ways of working and grow your agile capabilities so your teams can deliver value with each sprint.
Technology teams, top to bottom
We’ve been working alongside senior leaders in diverse organisations for more than 20 years. We can help you refine C-level coaching and strategy, establish precise and functional objectives and key results (OKRs), review and refine operating models, and integrate agility in your processes, culture and strategy.
We partner with our clients to optimise their architecture landscape to drive pragmatic technical solutions throughout the transformation delivery lifecycle. We know what architecture best practice looks like, and we’ll share our knowledge and embed it into your organisation.
We’ll work together to define your architecture vision and roadmaps. This will keep your technology initiatives and delivery capability centred around a common technical vision—one that’s linked to your organisational objectives and leads to tangible business value.
Governance and assurance
By partnering with your technology delivery functions, we’ll perform health checks to identify the root cause of problems. We’ll then provide targeted recommendations that will help you streamline your governance processes and embed the best practices for structured, robust and rapid technology change.
We’ll make sure you have the operational tools in place to provide and run IT services effectively. To do that, we’ll support you to define and validate the infrastructure, platforms and application architecture you need.
We’ll help you define your end-to-end architecture by developing current, target and transition-state blueprints. These will provide scope and direction when it comes to selecting vendors and executing your design.
Cloud and infrastructure
Cloud and infrastructure
We’ll help you forge a path through the complexities of cloud transformation by crafting a sustainable cloud strategy that’s aligned to your business. Our cloud and infrastructure advisory team will partner with you to consider people, process and technology.
Strategy is the first step on your journey to cloud enablement. We’ll help design the target architecture, operating model and controls that will drive the business outcomes you’re looking for.
Shaping and driving the migration is an essential part of cloud transformation. We’ll help you establish the strategy and sequence to inform the technology workstreams for a risk-managed, successful outcome.
This emerging discipline involves managing the business demand and cloud commercial constructs. Starting from this approach, we can help optimise the business value you see from your cloud activity.
Digital workplaces make employees more productive. We’ll set up your technology and collaboration tools so you can benefit from the security, availability and adaptability of the latest ways of working.
Cyber and resilience
Cyber and resilience
We’ll help you acquire the resilience and foresight you need to safely operate in a threat-rich landscape. We’ve worked across industry and government to assess risk, build strategy, implement technology, and—in the worst case—support after incidents. We come to cyber with a rich IT and enterprise skillset, driving secure outcomes while ensuring cyber strategy is executed within the broader business context.
Cyber strategy and change
We’ll collaborate with you to build a cyber strategy that enables your business to achieve its goals in a safe and scalable way. Our team can then design an operating model that unlocks your strategic potential. Our specialists bring knowledge from across different industries to help you:
- identify the optimum sourcing model and expert suppliers that best suit your goals
- ensure your strategy is enabled by effective change capabilities
- embed the process and governance that can help calibrate the strategy when
Cyber risk and resilience
We’ll work with you to effectively reduce your risk exposure and dramatically improve your cyber resilience posture. We’ll help you identify and quantify the cyber risks you face, target your strategy towards resilient business outcomes, and understand and manage the risks in your supply chain.
Cyber regulation and transformation
We’ll work with you to assess the regulatory change affecting your business and plan and build the programme of change you need for compliance and broader benefits. We can also deliver independent compliance assurance, guide you through independent audits, and review the strategy and approach of in-flight programmes so your leaders can be confident they’ll deliver the right outcomes.

CIO Leadership Development

M&A, PMI and Separation
From pre-deal due diligence to the CIO’s day-one and longer-term strategic responses, we’ll support you through mergers and acquisitions, post-merger integration, and separation.
We’ll provide maturity assessments and in-depth reviews of your CIO organisation to show where you can optimise, looking at areas such as costs, project portfolios, capabilities, and competitor platforms and systems.
We’ll help build sustainability into the fabric of your technology supply chain. We’ll show you how technology can support sustainability throughout the organisation, and help you minimise your overall carbon and environmental impact.
We’ll advise on strategic sourcing, procurement activities, and optimising your IT supply chain for sustainability.
An increasing number of our clients see the value in choosing an independent technology delivery partner. We’ve worked with lots of different system integrators and technologies, and we combine our technical knowledge and independent eye to assess the best technology and delivery partners for you. This helps our teams accelerate change programmes while working in a considered and measured way that minimises risk.
We partner with our clients on their largest and most complex technology transformation programs, and manage the full lifecycle, from vision and strategy to mobilisation, technology delivery and benefit realisation. Our experienced technology practitioners add pragmatism and innovative thinking to your delivery teams, helping you achieve the business and technology outcomes you’re looking for.
We call on the extensive experience of our executive and senior manager group to support your test strategy, test execution and test QA work. This helps us share best practice and transfer knowledge and skills with your teams.
The earlier we start planning for go-live, the better we can help you guard against the common pitfalls. We’ve used our robust approach to help clients cutover to their future model and system landscape across complex global transformations, joint ventures and post-merger integrations.
Our clients tell us they’re facing skills gaps in the main enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions they use to run their business. We can support you with roles and skills for packages from the major technology providers including, but not limited to, SAP, Oracle, Microsoft and WorkDay.
