Chief Technology Officer as-a-Service
Designed for the CEO, CIO or CTO looking to embark on a digital transformation (DX) programme, our CTO as-a-Service provides an actionable and prioritised programme of work, detailed business case and delivery milestones.
NWT will provide a senior DX Consultant, with real world-experience who will work with you to determine your level of digital maturity, where you sit against your peers and where you should go, in DX terms, to gain competitive advantage based on in-depth understanding of how to combine the latest technologies and advances to deliver transformational business change.
Using our Agile four-stage Discover, Develop, Design and Deliver process they will help ensure that your DX roadmap delivers the required outcomes.
Working in partnership with your own internal team, the CTO will help you create a detailed DX roadmap that prioritises activity based on pressing business goals. They will also identify the necessary IT, financial and capability required to deliver to your DX imperatives.
Our Consultants draw on the wider experience and resources of our strategic alliance partners, sharing knowledge and thought leadership on DX strategy, the end-to-end customer experience and the innovative thinking that is required to deliver to today’s digital imperatives.
Rapid DX strategy and benefit realisation
Provided as part of our CTO as-a-Service or as individual stand-alone services, NWT has a range of assessment services that enable you to fully understand the challenges and opportunities associated with DX. We will provide an independent and objective review of your DX maturity and readiness, as well as a structured assessment of your project plans, business case, security risk and expected return on investment. This provides the key insights and information needed to make informed decisions about your DX journey with greater confidence.
Rapid DX Programme Assessment
Our Programme Assessment service provides an independent review of the technical and non-technical aspects of your DX programme including digital maturity, risk profile and benefits realisation plan. Our analytics platform uses software and artificial intelligence to deliver detailed insight into your IT infrastructure and application estate and then applies digitised experience, learnings and 'what-if' capability to identify changes required to support delivery of DX imperatives.
Work is executed in weekly sprints with a ceremony at the end of each week to review interim findings and metrics together with recommendations to improve the overall success of the programme. Our Agile review process ensures that your DX programme is structured correctly and is designed to deliver against milestones.
NWT has deep experience in designing and implementing security controls in order to remediate technical security risk. We will provide an independent audit of your security risk so that you have a greater understanding of the effectiveness of the security provision in your organisation. We will provide advice and guidance on what changes might be required to ensure your security agenda is fit for purpose. Our Security Audit covers many different areas including:
• Process Assessments
• Threat Assessments
• Compliance with relevant industry standards/guidelines
• Vulnerability Assessment
• Forensic Analysis
• Risk and Compliance Assessments
• Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking Tests
Business Continuity Services
NWT will provide a fully-managed Business Continuity Service that starts with an independent audit of your existing technical continuity plans and disaster recovery (DR) infrastructure. We then combine traditional DR recovery solutions with new cloud-based services to ensure your Business Continuity Plan supports your future DX strategy. If required, we will also implement regular non-intrusive DR testing across your Workplace, Data Centre and Telecommunications infrastructure. Our fully-managed Business Continuity Service is designed to save valuable resource that can be focused on more vital parts of your organisation.
