In management , information technology consulting (also called IT consulting, computer consultancy, business and technology services, computing consultancy, technology consulting, and IT advisory) as a field of activity focuses on advising organizations on how best to use information technology (IT) in achieving their business objectives . In addition to providing advice, IT consultancies often estimate, manage, implement, deploy , and administer IT systems on behalf of their client organizations – a practice known as “outsourcing“.

The IT consulting industry can be viewed as a Four-tier system:

  • Professional services firms which maintain large professional workforce’s and command high bill rates.
  • Staffing firms, which place technologists with businesses on a temporary basis, typically in response to employee absences, temporary skill shortages and technical projects.
  • Independent consultants, who are self-employed or who function as employees of staffing firms (for US tax purposes), or as independent contractors in their own right (for US tax purposes, on “1099”).
  • Information Technology security consultants

There are different reasons why consultants are called in:

  • To gain external, objective advice and recommendations
  • To gain access to the consultants’ specialized expertise
  • Temporary help during a one-time project where the hiring of a permanent employee(s) is not required or necessary
  • To outsource all or part of the IT services from a specific company.
