EasylifeIT™ appoints James Allison as Strategic IT Consultant

From today, 3rd April, I have joined EasylifeIT™ in the new role of Strategic IT Consultant.

Based out of our Norwich office, but working with clients across the UK, my job is to advise customers who do not need a full-time senior IT specialist, but could definitely benefit from some structured, strategic guidance periodically.  In practice that could mean helping clients with any or all of the following: choosing between bespoke or off-the-shelf software; developing business continuity plans; undertaking marketplace appraisals and running competitive tenders; practical cyber security advice; data protection auditing and planning; IT policy development and training; project management.
