Our human-centric approach puts you in control
At Avanade Advisory Services, we help bring your vision to life and put you in control. We use a human-centric approach to balance the needs of technology users with business needs.
We focus on areas like cloud, infrastructure and applications transformation; modern software engineering; customer experience and engagement; and employee experience and productivity. Several key capabilities underpin all our Advisory Services work, including:
Change management: A significant challenge businesses face when it comes to digital transformation is the human factor. Our change management team focuses on preparing your business and your people for the implementation of new capabilities and technologies in a way that improves organizational and human performance and delivers business results.
Security: Our security team can help you address critical issues like compliance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). For example, our GDPR Readiness Assessment highlights areas of readiness and areas requiring further action. It provides a clear understanding of your current mode of operation and the steps required to get to a future mode where your business is ready for GDPR.
We have also bolstered our capabilities with acquisitions of organizations like Infusion and CloudTalent, which bring longstanding specialized expertise in advisory services.
We help you become a digital business
Our approach enables us to provide innovation combined with practical execution. We deliver strategies, expertise, guidance and roadmaps that bring together the critical building blocks of a digital business: delighting your customers, unleashing the power of data, modernising your IT and reimagining your workplace.
