Because of our independence from suppliers of software and hardware, Socitm Consulting is often called upon to provide an independent view. This may range from reviewing the performance of an ICT service, to reviewing the contractual performance of a strategic partner or outsource supplier. Diplomacy and tact are often required, in addition to the absolute objectivity that we offer.
