Many people don't really know what an "IT company" does, or they have misconceptions about how broad the IT industry has become.
One of the first questions we are asked when we introduce ourselves as an IT provider is “what kind of software do you develop?”. Due to the surge of cloud services, technology development and the rise of tech companies producing a large number of applications, it makes sense that the layperson tends to bundle IT services in with software development. IT consultancy companies have their own place within this ever-changing environment, enabling businesses to keep up with the latest technology within the framework of their individual business strategy.
So, what is it IT companies do specifically to support your business strategy? When is IT crucial to help your business succeed?
