The division is being run up by Nick Johnson, who becomes head of advisory services. His CV includes time as a software engineer at BAE Systems, and as director of group IT at GKN before leaving to join OGL. The division aims to aprovide more support for customers going through digital transformation
Johnson will be working with customers to help them drive efficiencies while keeping on top of compliance requirements and regulations that cover security. The envisaged customer for the advisory service will be a mid-market sized operation that is looking for help in devising and developing a digital strategy, but lacks all of the expertise to support that aim in-house.
“Following COVID-19, most UK firms are now on a digital transformation journey, but too many of them see IT as a cost they have to bear rather than a tool to help them continue growing. With the right strategic plan in place, one that has been tailored to an individual company’s business aims and growth target, IT can be an enabler”, said Johnson.
