In my 20+ years in technology, I spend roughly 16 as a customer and the last 4 as a consultant. Those can be two very different roles, while dealing with very similar challenges and solutions. However, they do not have to bee that different. If you know what to look for, you can find consultants that are focused on your business, and not just their technology.

To learn more about this term, and how to select the right consultant for your business, read my latest TechTarget article “Meeting long-term business goals, avoiding seagull consultants“. If you would like, feel free to come back here and leave a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts on the topic.
