IT Strategy

This approach is key to tailoring our advice and services for each client in our IT strategy consulting:

  • The right Innovation strategy will depend on your business strategy!
  • Small and midsize businesses competing with larger entities may have opportunities to leverage Technology as a strategic advantage
  • Businesses competing on service levels likely have a chance to leap frog their competitors with new capabilities empowered by Technology
  • Companies competing on price can greatly impact revenue and margin with next-generation automation approaches
  • If your competitors are already disrupting your industry with Digital innovation, we can layout strategies for defense and catchup

We believe Business should drive Tech, not the other way around.  Your business and competitive landscape are like no other.  We take Technology far beyond just “keeping the lights on” – even far Beyond Efficiency – to truly empowering your unique strategy.  We can help you find &/or implement Technology investments which drive market share, revenue, and margin, and may even position your organization to Disrupt your Industry.  Contact us today to initiate a conversation about how Innovation Vista can bring this approach and our expert consultants to you!

Change is Faster than Ever, but Will Never Again Be This Slow

This succinct summary of the challenge of modern life is a quote from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, from his keynote at the Davos World Economic Forum in 2018.  And although that organization tried to downplay the sentiment later that year, Trudeau's claim seems an accurate summary of our times. Change is hard for human beings; we are accustomed to a great deal of consistency from one day to another: in what is expected of us, in the tools we use to perform those duties, in how we're perceived by others and how we interact with others, in what constitutes the necessities of life, and in how we obtain those necessities.  Most of us feel we can "handle" change, but when we say that we usually mean one change at a time, and with a pause after each change before we're forced to confront the next one.

Business Impact – the True North for Innovation

There is a lot of hype within the business sector around emerging technologies. Talk of finding new, creative ways to solve business challenges never fails to incite a buzz within organizations, for good reason.

And so it is with Virtual CIOs (aka Fractional CIOs/Remote CIOs/Part-time CIOs)... This quote is actually from one of our recent clients, a mid-size company who engaged our Virtual CIO service to provide IT leadership to several IT groups who had previously reported separately to the CEO.   Why Our Case Studies are Anonymous Innovation Vista does not list our clients on our website or post a "logo page"; we do not issue press releases to announce client signings or project successes.  This policy is an important extension of our care and protection of our clients' strategies, in order to avoid letting their competitors know anything [...]
