Information Technology has revolutionized the world of trade and commerce. Every business has been
touched upon by the IT sector and it has changed how businesses conducted themselves right from
the conception of business idea to the deployment of their solutions. It requires special expertise and
skills to deploy IT based solutions. Not all of us are trained to deploy IT based solutions in an effective
and efficient way. If we undertake all the IT operations ourselves, we may not get the desired results
and we will be under utilizing the potential of the IT solutions through which we can benefit.

If we want to leverage the maximum potential of IT, we must make use of experienced IT consulting
solutions. Today not many of us understand the need, importance and the role of IT consulting
services and due to their lack of knowledge and experience, they fail to make use of the available

We need to have well defined and clear approach to enjoy the maximum benefit. IT consulting services
will help us with their expert advice, how well we can use IT for our businesses success. When we hire
an IT consulting company, they will first review our business model and understand our business
objectives fully. They will come up with IT solutions that suit our business to enhance our profit levels,
minimize the overhead costs on IT operations and to achieve our business objectives.

The needs of each company vary and it is not possible to have a boilerplate solution for all businesses.
Even for businesses within the same niche, we need to come up with different solutions and use
different approaches. Therefore, IT consulting services requires a high level of expertise in analyzing
business and providing solutions that match the specific needs of your business.

Your IT consulting company has to work with you closely to provide satisfactory solutions. At times you
may be just revamping your current solutions or you may be in need or a new solution built from the
scratch; whatever be your requirements, your IT consulting company should use your input as the
prime point of reference around which the solution should be built.

Often when we are engulfed in problems we may not be able to see the bigger picture and it would
require an expert who stands outside the problem to take the bigger picture into consideration while
developing the solutions and that expert will be your IT consulting service provider. Through their

experience in dealing with companies in various industries and qualification, IT consultants will help
them see the problem in better light. When we develop solutions, they often end up as reactive
solutions. Reactive solutions are not the best solutions often. When we hire an IT consulting expert,
they will develop proactive solutions that will bring positive results.

The scope of the IT consulting services varies based on our requirements and budget. Some of them
offer just their expert advice while other service providers like Sckunlimited.com offer full range of IT
consulting services from expert advice to complete deployment and management of IT solutions.

Management consulting has grown rapidly since the first consulting company in the 1890's. In leaps
and bounds it grew over 20% in the late 1980's and 1990's. It trickled off in the early 200's and has
since maintained steady growth, with revenues up 3% in 2004.

Management consulting has a long and varied history. The first consulting agency was developed in
the early 1890's by Arthur D. Little, an MIT professor who recognized a growing need for management
and strategic advice for growing companies.

He was followed by the Booz Allen Hamilton Consulting Firm, who took management consulting one
step further and began to service government clients in addition to purely business clients. This was a
new step and set the standard for many companies that followed.

In 1926, another consulting agency emerged that would become one of the premier leaders in the field,
McKinsey Management Consultants. After this run of management agencies, numerous others began
to emerge, but true innovation occurred some years after WWII with the development and
implementation of Boston Consulting Group.

In conjunction with other major management consultancy companies like Booz Allen, McKinsey, and
the Harvard Business School, BCG began to develop the tools and strategies that would define the
new field of strategic management.

Currently, there are several popular types of management consulting firms. They vary in size and
scope, and range from broad to extremely specific focuses.

Broad, all-encompassing management consulting practices

These organizations typically offer a large number and range of services such as IT consulting right
alongside a management consulting firm. They are diverse in the scope and range of services they
offer, and aren't locked in to one specific industry.

Large, purely management and strategy based consulting agencies

These agencies tend to be purely focused on business management and consulting on a general level.
They aren't specialized in one certain field and offer general services across multiple industries.

Medium and small specialized firms

These smaller firms are generally focused on a specific area of industry or technology. They don't
consult on a general scale and typically stay within the industry in which they specialize.

Management consulting companies have long strived for innovation in the practice of management,
and continue to grow in both size and scope.
