IT Strategy Consulting

How you leverage data and information to drive business outcomes not only has to align to your business strategy, it often drives your competitive advantage. We help you sort through the clutter to understand how to align technology investments to drive top line growth while maximizing value to bring your strategy to life.

Look past the every day and own the bigger picture.

Executing an IT Strategy that your company depends on every day is a demanding, all-consuming job. It can be difficult and at times overwhelming to develop a sound IT strategy, especially with the constant disruption of advanced technologies. You need to see past the daily demands to understand and own the bigger picture.


With our expertise in both business and technology, we help align technology and business objectives to focus efforts on IT initiatives that provide benefits to the business. We have helped shape and execute IT strategies for 25 years. Our clients have come to trust our perspective and pragmatism when helping define how information will support and drive business outcomes.

Client Chat: How Clarkston Assesses, Designs, and Implements Solutions

We sat down with our client Alnylam Pharmaceuticals to hear how they chose Clarkston as partner and why the relationship was beneficial. They selected Clarkston because of industry expertise and Clarkston’s willingness to partner on a journey to client success. The experience of partnering with Clarkston for an SAP implementation was one where Clarkston was driving the implementation and was hands-on in training to enable success internally after consultants stepped away.

“Clarkston does an amazing job at assessing what a company needs, evaluating how they can help the company, and ultimately, implementing what the company needs to be successful for the future. But most importantly, leaving you with the turn-key solution, such that when the consultants leave, you can step back and operate that system or process on your own,” said Charlie Hitscherich, Head of the External Manufacturing and Alliance Management Team.
