Finding the Right IT Consultant
Finding the right IT Consulting Firm is a daunting task. There are numerous IT providers, all claiming to have the most knowledgeable staff and the best support. They promise to provide you with easy solutions to your problems and throw around terms like Total Cost of Ownership and Value-Added to persuade you that ultimately their solution is superior.
Oftentimes, once the contracts are signed, the reality doesn’t live up to the high expectations they created. Or worse still, the organization was sold a solution that was good for the IT Provider’s bottom line, but not necessarily the best solution for the company.
The fact is that difficult problems rarely have simple solutions. Giving clients unrealistic expectations erodes the trust that is vital to any successful business relationship. If a customer does not trust the advice of their IT Consultant, it is difficult to address the actual needs of the organization.
