Optimizing core IT systems

Optimizing your core IT systems isn’t just about cost reduction. It’s also about preparing for growth.

In the mission to cut costs, companies initiate many tactical projects to optimize IT. But to achieve long-term cost return that doesn’t impact growth, requires a realization that optimization is never “finished”.

Avanade’s Optimization Services can help you automate and industrialize your existing application, collaboration and infrastructure technologies, processes and platforms. We do that through targeted assessments, development of high-level strategies, process automation and optimization work.

"Avanade has become a trusted partner. They understand our business and they continue to offer advice and solutions that keep our systems in tune with our operations."

Matt Robinson Chief Information Officer, Asia Pacific, GroupM
