IT Strategy & Risk Mitigation

Understanding how technology resources can most effectively and efficiently be leveraged toward carrying out the mission of your organization or program is imperative. The partners at OpenWise have a combined experience of over 35 years in Information Technology that we call upon to devise IT strategies for our nonprofiteducation, global development, and government clients.  Below is a sample of some of our consulting areas.

Organization-IT alignment

Occasionally messaging about the needs and the mission of the organization is not fully understood or communicated to the IT staff.  At other times messaging about resource limitations and capabilities isn’t effectively communicated to management.  The result over time can lead to a misalignment of IT resources away from the most efficient method of achieving the mission.  We provide assessment services for your entire organization, providing efficiency recommendations to improve your IT operations.

IT Security & Risk Management

Security and Continuity are critical to the daily operations of your organization and for maintaining the trust of stakeholders. We provide security and risk assessment services for your organization’s IT infrastructure. This ensures that the data that you rely upon is protected and accessible when required.

IT Project Management

Information technology projects, large and small, often fail because of poor planning and management.  OpenWise offers our clients decades of experience designing and conducting complex IT projects for their own IT initiatives.

Technology selection

It can be daunting to make the right decision when choosing the technology that your organization will depend on for its operation.  We provide unbiased assessments of vendors to present you with the best choices for selecting software and hardware.
