As independent, innovative and trusted advisors, our focus is to find the best digital solution to connect people and communities anywhere in the world.
Investing in digital public services is a major commitment; this involves significant funding, complex regulatory and procurement environments and a challenging business case.
You need to establish a strategy at a very early stage and develop a plan with specific details including; what type of solutions are required? Where? To who? Under what market conditions? What will the demand be? As well as being able to provide realistic estimates on budget and return on investment to develop a sound business case.
We understand the connectivity marketplace from suppliers, customers, funding to regulation and political drivers. It’s a complex landscape which requires years of experience to truly understand what works and what doesn’t. We help you build the business case for funding, we examine the market conditions to help with positioning, we use our cost modelling and design skills to develop technical and commercial plans. We also manage procurements to ensure you have the right suppliers and solutions in place – and provide independent assurance on deployments to ensure investment delivers.
Ensuring that clients and partners have a clear and fully developed set of approaches and principles to deliver their strategic aims for digital connectivity is at the core of our Digital Policy work.
We help develop the overarching policies that make good on our client’s strategic ambition and turn into deliverable programmes across government.
We help to identify the strategic drivers behind the need for investment, including development of the business case, options appraisal and cost benefit analysis and providing the support for funding and positioning ready for project initiation.
Connectivity needs to be reliable, scalable and able to deliver high performance to meet the growing demand for digital services across communities, businesses and public services. Our independent expertise in both fixed and mobile digital infrastructure, including detailed modelling tools, provides the technical depth required to analyse, challenge and interpret the technical designs.
There are many innovative commercial models available for enhancing connectivity and we consider the most appropriate on a case by case basis, considering the best mix of structuring public and private investments, conducting project financial analysis and state aid assessments.
We have over 15 years’ experience in delivering successful procurements from local initiatives to the most complex national programmes. This includes establishing the requirements, translating these to technical specifications, developing tender documentation, evaluating methodologies, scoring and procurement reporting.
To support and strengthen your strategic planning, decision making and customer engagement, we deliver valuable insight to clients using data analysis and modelling. Our specialist toolsets include data visualisation, geospatial analysis, interactive map development and mobile GIS.
