Technology consulting is the process through which professionals determine how best organisations can use IT to achieve their business objectives. It demands a rich understanding of the IT landscape, as well as the ability to strategically align business processes with available technology.

Those working in technology consulting drive performance, innovation and profitability within the organisations they work with – developing transformational capabilities, agile architecture and executional excellence. Synthesizing and analysing information, business and technology consulting roles involve liaising closely with stakeholders to develop an understanding of the structure, policies and operations of an organisation; working on an internal or external basis to align the needs of the business with the technological capabilities.
