We provide IT strategy and consultancy for Cloud services, data centres, network infrastructures and business applications throughout Europe and North America.
We recognise that technology is not the only piece of a successful solution. People, process, and managing risk play key roles in successful IT delivery.
Getting to a point where a team can proactively and continuously manage risk, work and communicate effectively, and align technology solutions with business requirements is critical for IT success and often the most difficult aspect to achieve.
These very areas, however, are often the root causes of IT project failure. Flexible Computing has developed risk management, team, and process models to provide guidance in these crucial areas.
By using our models, concepts, principles, and practices, organisations can:
- Create solutions that better match the business and user requirements.
- Speed up development and deployment cycles.
- Lower the cost of owning technology.
- Improve success on planned events.
- Improve resilience to unplanned events.
- Create scalable and reliable technology solutions.
- Improve core IT competencies.
- Achieve short-term results while maintaining a long-term planning strategy.
- Manage project risks.

Some questions to ask your potential solutions provider:
- Does the Design align information technology (IT) goals with business goals, enhance core business processes, or provide competitive advantages in the marketplace?
- Have they investigated how a change to one area of the enterprise will impact others?
- Have they identified opportunities to add value to the business side of the organisation by applying technology in an innovative way?
- Are they allowing the technology to be implemented in a proactive, coordinated, and focused manner based on business strategy?
- Are they making efficiencies possible, such as eliminating duplication of effort and reusing and leveraging IT investments and resources?
- Are they reducing the complexity of migration and the risks that change introduces?
