IT Services vs. IT Consulting: What’s the difference?

Both IT consulting and IT services are managed services that Australian businesses rely on partners to deliver, but they differ in focus. Managed IT services focus on delivering solutions or ongoing services over time, generally aligned to an SLA. These could be infrastructure support, helpdesk services, or any of a wide range of IT capabilities. IT consulting, on the other hand is most often project based, on an as needed basis, and focuses on the strategy underlying those solutions and deliverables. IT consulting helps businesses formulate a plan; IT services deliver on that plan.

Does my business need IT Consulting?

Many Australian businesses’ IT strategy is little more than chasing the next crisis or replacing the next piece of tech to go obsolete. But nearly every modern business is on some level a technology business, so gaining a clear IT strategy aligned to business goals and requirements is crucial to ongoing success.

IT consulting builds this strategy and facilitates the achievement of business technology goals, making technology an empowering force, not a hindrance or blocker.

Without a clear IT strategy from an experienced team of IT consultants, your business will be firefighting, not executing. You’ll not be able to leverage technology as a competitive advantage and will likely fall behind competition that are leveraging tech to be more efficient, effective, agile, deliver better CX, and ensure security and compliance.

If any of these are a concern, you need IT consulting services to help you define the big picture and set the road map to realising a holistic vision for your IT strategy.

What qualifications and expertise should I look for in an Australian IT consulting firm?

When searching for an Australian IT consulting firm, it's essential to focus on qualifications and expertise. A reliable IT consulting firm should have professionals who possess technical skills, knowledge, and experience to deal with different IT environments. Look for a company that has certified technicians, project managers, network engineers, and other experts who can offer solutions suitable for your business needs. The ideal firm should have extensive experience in IT consulting, with a track record of successfully implementing technological solutions for different clients. Lastly, strong problem-solving and communication skills are essential, as these will ensure they can effectively troubleshoot issues and relay complex information clearly
