With the ever-increasing pressure of rapidly evolving technology, complex compliance requirements, security threats and remaining competitive, organisations must have a clear IT strategy designed to deliver growth, reduce risk and drive efficiency.
There is a clear need to have a senior technology executive responsible for developing and managing IT strategy, decision-making and ongoing company-wide operations and projects who can successfully bridge between IT and corporate strategy, business alignment and business change.
We have a proven track record of providing strategic consultancy services to mid-market organisations, working with Boards, Senior Executives and Partnerships and helping organisations to move IT from being a cost centre to being part of a growth strategy.
Very often organisations are looking to outsource the IT function as a whole. Having the service provider acting as the business’s trusted adviser as well as supplying support and maintenance services allows a close alignment between us and the running of IT operations.
To help your organisation navigate the IT landscape whilst staying safe, profitable and innovative, Lumina Technologies can provide a dedicated strategic IT consultancy service. We will work as part of your organisation’s senior leadership team to provide leadership and guidance and assume responsibility for your strategic IT.

Developing a strategic IT plan aligned to corporate objectives
Developing a digital transformation strategy
Defining and managing the IT strategy for the next one, three and five years

Hawkstone Management Services Ltd is a small company for which IT Outsourcing is realistically the only viable option. Lumina Technologies have successfully performed this role for over fifteen years. They also provide innovative solutions to keep pace with technological progress. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lumina to similar sized businesses.

Richard and his team are a real inspiration to anyone who meets them and I have watched Lumina’s growth over the last few years with interest and admiration. Richard has been an amazing supporter of the Hospice of St Francis, being a Gold member of the Corporate Partner Network for almost two years. He takes an active interest in the community and is passionate about his company and his town: nothing is too much trouble, he is always willing to help, to give up his time and to provide business advice when asked. Lumina is an inspiration to any company wanting to set up business in Hertfordshire.
