Strategic Consulting

Windsor Group's senior-level IT infrastructure management consultants will help you analyze and prepare for outsourcing. If outsourcing is not an option, our consultants will help plan an internal transformation to reduce costs and improve services. Our infrastructure management consultants create actionable steps that span functional silos, minimize risk, and transform to the target state faster.


BENCHMARKING SERVICES - Windsor Group’s world class Benchmark Service leverages our proven proprietary methodology that clearly identifies an organization’s internal infrastructure operations cost, service and performance output compared to “real time” best in class data center and service provider operations. The Windsor Group Dashboards and metrics become the foundation for executing informed executive decisions and selecting the optimal sourcing strategy.

IT SERVICE ASSESSMENT - Windsor Group's unique IT Service Assessment methodology enables our clients to quickly assess their IT infrastructure for expense reduction opportunities while maintaining or improving service levels. The Windsor Group IT infrastructure management team will create a client profile to evaluate service costs, service levels, processes and business value. Through this approach, opportunities are found to improve purchasing power, increase the productivity of the staff, boost the efficiency of the technology and source commodity services in the market place. Whether the right choice is to outsource, initiate an internal process improvement plan, move an infrastructure service out to the cloud, or a combination of all three, our IT Service Assessment will develop the strategy, business case and plan.

GOVERNANCE AND CONTROL MODELING - Management processes and controls are the key to assure continual price/performance improvement. People, process and tools may fix your service problems, but governance and control modeling is necessary to sustain your service levels. With this offering, we develop specific metrics-driven management processes that will fundamentally shift the way you manage IT service delivery.

WORKFORCE OPTIMIZATION - The Windsor Group will analyze the activity of your IT workforce and then categorize the activities into a workload model that maps your IT services into three broad categories of Operations, Service Request, and Projects. The activities will be rated on factors such as process maturity, repeatability, value, and level of effort. A strategy and plan to optimize your workforce will be developed based on this analysis, industry best practices and the ITIL framework. Recommendations usually include activities that will be eliminated, automated, or sourced to lower cost resource pool. A roadmap will be presented that offers the best ROI at the lowest risk.


The Windsor Group worked closely with us to baseline our IT infrastructure expense and per unit cost, then vetted out multiple service provider solutions specific to our requirements. WG helped us make complex, strategic IT sourcing decisions based on a strong understanding of our IT service operations and marketplace solutions.
