Information technology consulting (also called IT consulting, computer consultancy, computing consultancy, technology consulting business and technology services or IT advisory) is a field that focuses on advising businesses on how best to use information technology to meet their business objectives.
In addition to providing advice, IT consultancies often estimate, manage, implement, deploy, and administer IT systems on businesses’ behalf, known as Outsourcing. The four basic principles of IT consulting are:
• Focus on the relationship: Understanding the personality and expectations of client, client organization and all other stakeholders
• Clearly defined role: Defined roles and responsibilities for both clients, other stakeholders and consulting team
• Visualize success: Helping the client see the end at the beginning
• You advise, they decide: Client is the best person to decide
