      How IT Roadmapping Works With Akita

      With almost 30 years of experience working with 1000s of organisations, and a large number of in-house experts and consultants, we have the expertise to help shape organisations’ IT for growth.

      Our roadmapping process typically begins from the start of any new relationship and consists of three key stages:

      IT Roadmapping
      • During our onboarding phase, Akita collects information about your organisation’s current IT setup and identifies potential gaps or issues. We’ll also engage with stakeholders about your organisation’s profile, broad goals and growth expectations.
      • Armed with this information, your personal account manager will liaise with our consultants to create a roadmap. This will typically cover immediate needs or desires, and an assessment of how your technology may need to adapt in line with your plans. We’ll also use industry and profile comparison to make suggestions based on other high performing organisations or wider industry-specific best practice.
      • Your account manager will then assess the roadmap with stakeholders to ensure it aligns with your priorities, adapting it as necessary. It is then an active plan: your account manager will review it on a regular basis, providing updates on long-term projects and modifying it based on changing requirements within your organisation.

      Through this strategic approach, we help organisations shape their IT in a way that’s right for their needs and maximises the value from our expertise at every stage of their growth cycle.
