New Vendor-Agnostic Technology Advisory Practice

Blackdot recently launched its brand-new Technology Advisory Practice to support and enable organisations through this lengthy and complex part of their transformation journey.

The average spend on sales, marketing, customer service and technologies like cloud investment is firmly on the rise. The latest reports and trends suggest that the average CMO’s technology spend will soon exceed CIO’s and with business leaders investing directly in IT, the boundaries between IT and business are blurring.
With this in mind, Blackdot recently launched its brand-new ‘client side’ Technology Advisory Practice, to support and empower organisations through this complicated business-led part of their transformation. The vendor-agnostic practice will provide businesses with independent and professional advice on their IT strategy and architecture, transformation planning, and business alignment governance.
Key areas of expertise to be offered by Blackdot: 

  • Diagnostic and Benchmarking
  • Strategy and Blueprint Definition
  • Transition Planning
  • Transformation Governance

Heading up the new Technology Advisory practice is Samit Chandra, who brings over 25 years of experience in strategy, architecture, transformation and governance primarily across Financial Services, Insurance and Utilities. He is passionate about providing organisations with a clear vision and a strategy to move to digital economy and make business effective for the end consumer. Samit has led strategy development and transformation planning for multiple large organisations including American Express, IAG, BUPA, HCF, and Sydney Water.
When asked about his new appointment, Samit said, “Shaping a technology advisory practice from the ground up is an exciting opportunity and I look forward to what the future holds. I feel privileged to work with such an excellent group of people in a high performing environment.”

Samit will be speaking at our upcoming Enterprise Growth Transformation Executive Breakfast. Register today and select Workshop Stream 4 - Implementing & Adopting New Technology.
