With technology now critical to helping drive corporate strategy and ensuring its success, today’s CIO is fast becoming the new corporate “rock star,” as well as an advocate for change, corporate transformation and the realities of what new technologies can do. But technology investments don’t always achieve the expected benefits, and companies are finding that harnessing technology to fuel innovation is a major challenge.
Organizations therefore need a fundamentally different approach to building and managing technology and large-scale transformation—one better suited to the ever-changing reality of today’s business landscape.
That’s where we come in.

Six essential actions for new CIOs in their first 120 days
The chief information officer operates at the crossroads of technology and business disruption – the vital link between an organization’s tech investments and its pursuit of value.
It’s crucial for the CIO to set themselves up for success in their first 120 days. In this video, Technology Strategy and Advisory Managing Director Jenica McHugh discusses the six essential actions that CIOs should focus on. It’s an essential checklist for any tech leader, whether they are at the top of their game or just getting on the field.
CIOs need new approaches for measuring, creating and communicating the value of their technology spending. By industrializing their approach, they can define enterprise value metrics and drive more transparency around technology spending. That transparency gives them the clarity to make informed decisions on when and where to reduce, redistribute and expand technology investment.
Many companies are using disciplines — such as Technology Business Management, FinOps, lean portfolio, cost optimization and more — in pockets of their business. Tech Value interlocks these disciplines and approaches to unlock greater value across the enterprise. It is bolstered with services from recent acquisitions and partners, such as Advocate.
Technology Cost and Productivity Reinvention (C&PR)
CIOs are caught between optimising costs and implementing technology-led change. Technology C&PR helps executives to control costs and reinvest savings into growth and transformation initiatives.
Technology Business Management (TBM)
Bolstered with the recent acquisition of Advocate, we help companies to implement TBM practices and solutions, to increase transparency and connect IT spend to business value.
Companies need to get better business value from the cloud. We help engineering, finance, technology and business teams to collaborate on data-driven spending decisions.
