Free Report Guides Businesses on Selecting a Technology Consulting Firm

Venice Consulting Group Releases "Six Questions to Ask When Hiring a Systems Integrator"

CULVER CITY, CA--(Marketwire - May 30, 2007) - Venice Consulting Group, a leading software development and consulting firm based in Culver City California, today released a free guide for businesses on how to select the best technology systems integrator. The report entitled "Six Questions to Ask When Hiring a Systems Integrator" was written specifically for businesses in the process of searching for a firm to help them meet their technology needs.

Technology systems integrators is a general category that describes consulting firms who engage in software development, web site creation or modification, application integration and other activities. The dilemna facing businesses in search of a partner is a lack of information to compare against. With over 10,000 systems integrators in the US and abroad, the challenge of finding one with expertise becomes even greater.

Questions companies should ask in the selection process include:

--  Does the systems integrator have a process to manage scope, time and
    budget?  Do they have definable, repeatable and measurable processes?
--  How do they minimize cost or what is their cost containment strategy?
--  Does the systems integrator evaluate risk/reward on a regular basis?
"The success or failure of implementing technology projects can ultimately determine whether or not a business meets its objectives," says Jake Ryan, managing partner for Venice Consulting Group. "Finding a quality systems integrator and striking a long-term relationship can be immensely beneficial to businesses of all sizes. Systems integrators serve companies ranging from start-ups to enterprises, and spanning diverse industries. This report was meant to create a guideline that helps facilitate initial discussions in the discovery phase."
