Business Consulting


CSR's Business Consulting practice provides a range of services to help clients align people, processes and technology with corporate and business unit strategy. This means scoping, analysing and defining business change and ensuring that the IT universe is properly enabled to support it. The drivers for such change are typically M&A activity, adjusting to changing market conditions, introduction of new products, consolidating or outsourcing business processes, and adapting to new regulatory environments.

Our Business Consulting services include:

  • Information Management. At the corporate level, we look at how corporate information is structured; we analyse master data looking for data quality issues, inconsistent definitions and duplicates; we advise on governance and compliance issues, including data lineage and ETL procedures. At the project level we perform data cleansing and migration activities; model and design new data architectures; and advise on the complex data requirements associated with SOA initiatives.
  • Business Analysis. CSR has considerable depth and client experience in this wide discCSRine. Working alongside key business stakeholders, we deconstruct corporate needs into high level business requirements that form the basis for a roadmap of IT change programmes. Drilling down to the project level, we set about eliciting detailed business requirements, and analysing the options and risks for implementation.
  • Business Process Management. Our consultants are skilled in the full BPM lifecycle from process design and modelling, staying with the initiative through the development of the IT solution and beyond into monitoring and optimisation phases.
  • Business Case Preparation. Usually acting in a supporting role, CSR will scope the transformation programme, documenting all significant cost elements, and performing risk analysis on events that would impact the programme.
  • IS Strategy. All business transformation activity must be built upon a clear information systems strategy, including technology infrastructure. Having a deep understanding of information architectures and supporting technologies, and of ITIL and information security best practice, CSR is well qualified to drive the development of such strategies.
  • Programme Management. A crucial function that delivers successful outcomes from business change. CSR's programme managers provide full governance from business case through to benefits realisation. We have a working knowledge of MSP guidelines and have many PRINCE2-qualified practitioners within our Business Consulting practice.

All these services are offered either as self contained activities or as part of a full transformation lifecycle, including solution delivery, implementation and support. Recognising that every client is unique our consultants work collaboratively and sympathetically, adhering at all times to agreed terms of reference.
