With digital technologies becoming increasingly central to business strategy, IT functions are fundamentally changing how they operate.

If you’re looking for an IT transformation consultancy to support you on this critical journey, Berkeley can help. We’ve enabled many of our clients to successfully navigate the complexities of the changes required to achieve the key benefits.
We were really pleased with the contribution of Berkeley throughout the project. We relied on the consultants’ thoroughness in planning, good preparation, integrity in advice for decision-making, and overall project management. This was particularly important because we were working with a team of [client company] people from different management groups, as well as several different providers across numerous international locations. The team delivered the project on time, within budget and it was one of the smoothest ‘go-lives’ of any project in recent times. A job well done by Berkeley and indeed everyone involved.”
