IT governance and strategy

IT governance and strategy focuses on IT solutions and services, to assure that investments in IT solutions and services generate maximum business value.

Montell & Partners helps our clients integrate IT into the corporate governance structure and to align IT with the business goals as well as to ensure that resources are allocated in an optimal way.

As a part of our strategy services Montell & Partners helps our clients to describe the journey that their company needs to make from its current position to reach the future desired position which is described by main IT initiatives that will be performed in the coming 3-5 years.


Transformation of IT services and operations

Transforming IT services and operations into the new era of digitalization and cloud computing is one of the key challenges in many organizations today.

Cloud is a powerful driver for innovative business initiatives and is taking on a more strategic role within many organizations. Becoming “digital” means employing IT to manage operations and drive a digital customer experience, as well as developing and delivering new products and services.

Digitalization is reshaping the relationship between companies, their customers and supplier. It is breaking down the walls between different industry sectors, forcing companies to redefine industry models. In many businesses, digitalization is viewed upon as the 4th industrial revolution.

Montell & Partners offers our clients the opportunity to be part of this exiting journey by acting as change leader or enabler together with our clients’ organization.


Implementation of IT solutions

Implementation of a new IT solutions (for example CRM, ERP, BI or other business critical solutions) is often a complex process including several business functions and processes.

 

Montell & Partners has vast experience from global, multi-site implementations in both public and private sector, that will help our clients undertake the challenge by providing customized support throughout the project.

Finding the right IT solution, sourcing strategy and implementation process are important when choosing a new IT software or service. We focus on creating sustainable value and support your implementation project or program throughout the entire process:

  • Initiating, planning and organizing the project together with key stakeholders
  • Analysing business requirements vs current processes, systems and master data
  • Helping with the system and supplier evaluation including negotiation and agreement
  • Leading the implementation and change management process together with our clients
  • Secure proper set-up and hand-over to the future maintenance organisation

A key success factor is to work in close cooperation with both the client and the supplier(s) involved, and customize the approach to the specific situation.


Application development

Application Development encompasses a range of areas from development of completely new system solutions to adoptions of existing standard systems and functionalities. For most business processes, standard off-the-shelf software can and should be leveraged as challenges arise where standard software is insufficient. Montell & Partners are highly experienced in developing customized software applications, either as stand-alone systems or as extensions to standard systems, designed not merely to fulfil a requirements specification, but rather solve the specific business challenge at hand.

We are primarily a Microsoft shop, skilled in developing applications based on Microsoft stacks:

  • Web applications based on IIS, ASP.NET and SQL Server
  • Desktop applications and Microsoft Office applications
  • Business Intelligence based on SQL Server or Power BI
