Technology consulting is an end-to-end service - ranging from designing or developing technology, to implementing and managing systems or processes on a client's behalf. Typically, a client will commission the services of a consulting firm to help plan and develop a new IT system or to examine the risks of an existing system.
What does a technology consultant do?
In a nutshell, technology consultants advise businesses on how best to use technology to meet their business objectives.

Typical areas of technology consulting:
- Software development
- IT infrastructure planning
- Risk assessment analysis
