The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) is an industry body, that champions and advocates the adoption and use of Cloud-based software, platforms, infrastructure, and services by businesses.

Aitemology® has created unique transformation blueprints licenced through an ai-assisted portal, that facilitate accelerated delivery of business and technology change agendas.

Our mission is:

To put knowledge and control in the hands of our clients so they can achieve clarity and focus, delivering more, faster and at a lower cost, allowing redeployment of financial and human capital where it is better served. We want to drive optimal outcomes, eliminating waste and maximising value.

Our purpose is:

To standardise, simplify, and streamline change agenda delivery across government while supporting the unique nuances of each individual department and to mitigate as much delivery-related risk as possible by promoting greater collaboration, knowledge sharing and lessons learned through engagement between Government, industry bodies and training agencies.

Our solution

Transformation programmes follow a common path, so our methodology does the heavy lifting enabling you to deliver up to 80% or your programme with 20% of the effort.

Vendor and product agnostic, and adaptive to business critical and non-critical services, our methodology offers simplicity, transparency and control so your Board, stakeholders, business users and programme delivery team can be confident of success.

Our approach extends beyond normal programme timelines, supporting the move to BAU and into a continuous improvement culture which eases future change-related pain.

Our Cloud, Consult and Change methodology aitems® are delivered via our ai-assisted interactive portal and have been transitioned into optional training. This has the potential to impart decades of experience and aid fast track learning within transformation and change teams.

Our value-add approach is both flexible (clients can use as many aitems® or as much training as they want) and scalable (per user licences make budgeting and cost control easier).

In recent years, the movement towards holistic digital transformation has gained momentum. Too many technology-led projects are challenging and fail because they often don’t account for wider business value and are seen as costs and, perhaps more often, they simply do not bring the people and the processes along on the journey. Businesses are increasingly recognizing the value of integrating technology with more human-centric strategies. At Beyond, we specialise in this value and people-first approach.

Our consultancy, guided by psychologists, encompasses strong due diligence and discovery, effective strategy building engaging all the stakeholders and, ultimately, delivering projects that will transform your organisation. We redefine digital transformation by placing people at the forefront. Our approach diverges from conventional ‘cloud first, mobile first’ strategies, prioritising full engagement with organisations to unlock greater value.

Let us be your partner in navigating this transformational journey, providing the expertise and practical guidance needed to effectively embrace IT change and propel your business forward in today’s dynamic landscape.
