- IT Economics Service
In the face of growing demands for compliance and governance-led transparency, the corporate focus on IT costs is driven by the enterprise-wide mandate to ‘do more with less’.
Today’s tough economic climate demands that cost efficiencies be derived from existing systems, costs be firmly controlled and new projects add value.
Consequently, IT management needs to understand and closely control the activities that drive IT costs and the factors of demand and supply. It is only through the implementation of formal cost management activities that the IT function can deliver cost-effective IT services and maximise visibility into related cost structures. We provide a systematic and holistic approach to IT cost reduction, and its integration into existing IT processes and management. We will ensure that the best value is being achieved from an organisation’s IT investments.

With a portfolio of IT Economics advisory services offering specialist advice, tooling and solutions, we will optimise the financial control of your IT organisation. Through cutting edge technology thought leadership, we will support you and help to evolve your IT or business strategy.

CIO Advisory Service
The CIO Advisory Service provides industry expertise across multiple IT management disciplines on an ‘on-demand’ basis.
Our CIO consultant will work to deliver your technology infrastructure goals and partner with you to advise, guide and lead you through challenges and change.
Our CIO Advisory Service provides service continuity by providing an interim technology leader when your CIO leaves the organisation, or by providing specialist skills and expertise where there are gaps, particularly in relation to emerging technologies and environmental issues (e.g. cloud architecture, network security).
Bring cutting-edge technology thought leadership to your organisation and evolve your business strategy. By working with our CIO consultant we aim to help you evolve an efficient and optimised technology platform by building a technology roadmap which will enable you to leverage emerging technology to improve user experience, reduce cost and expand business capabilities.

IT Organisation Design
The Organisation Design service is designed to offer support and enhanced decision-making capability to senior executives seeking to drive change across their IT organisations.
Organisations need to be continuously assessing whether their IT structure is optimised to support their business, whether from a perspective of business growth, divergence, additional demand, new products and services or a cost efficiency mandate. Pulsant provides an end-to-end suite of advisory skills to help deliver better value, a stronger service proposition and a more cost-effective IT structure.
We will provide you with an objective, independent, assessment of your IT organisation, using our experience of how to deliver best-in-class enterprise IT services in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
RFP Bid Management
An RFP should save you time and money, empowering your business by identifying the best company to engage with.
Pulsant’s IT and management experts will develop an effective RFP document that is specific to your business needs, working with you to outline the requirements, specifications, systems and feature-sets that you require. We will not only save your staff time, but we will ensure that your project comes in on budget and with the right technology, whilst properly defining and addressing the most accurate security and compliance criteria.
- M&A Readiness Framework
- IT Due Diligence
M&A Readiness Framework
Our team has over 20 years’ experience in delivering acquisitions and IT integration.
We have used this knowledge, gained from experiencing multiple mergers across a wide variety of sectors and technologies, to create a bespoke IT M&A Due Diligence Service designed to fit your unique business needs. Throughout the service we will gather and assess information on the issues, costs, business objectives, risks and impacts associated with the integration of systems from an external company.
After this assessment, we will deliver a considered and structured report, allowing senior business and IT management to make informed decisions on the business impact of the acquisition or merger.
IT Due Diligence
Due diligence is essential in mitigating risk. Inadequate delivery can compromise contracts, risk fraudulent attacks or result in major losses that were entirely avoidable.
Pulsant acts as an extension of your own IT management team. Our senior consultants are industry-seasoned IT leaders with a supporting staff of leading technology professionals. We bring cutting-edge technology thought leadership to your business and we develop your business strategy. We offer deep expertise and broad experience in supporting businesses that are undergoing significant change events. Our client base is cross-industry and includes the financial services, insurance, energy, aerospace and professional services.
Our service delivers a considered and structured report, allowing senior business and IT management to make informed decisions on the business impact and to assess the risks associated with the specific due diligence performed.
Business Case Development Service
While some businesses are able to embrace change, for many, defining change programmes remains difficult. This is often due to an inability to fully articulate the benefits of change within the current business environment.
The Business Case, usually a method used to express and justify change, can often be the element that stops a
valid programme before it has chance to prove itself. With the help of Pulsant’s Business Case Development
Service, your business will be supported to make a considered, structured and well-justified submission for
approval. Pulsant will provide you with a clear understanding of the business requirement, assessing how it will
positively affect the current steady state and presenting the report in a clear, concise format that has impact.
Throughout the project, we will continue to ensure that you retain visibility of your desired high-value outcome,
whilst delivering a bespoke service that is unique to your business needs.
