82% of enterprise customers work with Trusted Advisors to help make and execute technology purchasing decisions (Avant – State of Disruption Study 2020)
Why? Because the rate of change is too fast for most IT organizations to do it all alone.
A Trusted Advisor is an extension of your team, helping you navigate the confusion in the market caused by the accelerating pace of change in IT. They are a change agent that understands the technology trends in the industry and can help you make sense of what it means to your business.
Trusted Advisors help you harness IT to give your company a competitive advantage. They know the strengths of key service providers and can agnostically help you choose the right one.
They’ll work side by side with your team to design, procure, implement, and support even the most complex IT solutions.
Quite simply, a Trusted Advisor is the best friend a CIO / CTO / CFO will ever have.
