We provide our clients with a governance framework unique to their organization, that will become the cornerstone of effective IT management.  However, if an organization is to drive improved value from it’s mega vendor investments and control software and cloud related costs, it must first have access to both trustworthy data and have effective processes and policies in place.


Most organizations will complete a contract renewal or audit for each mega vendor perhaps once every 3 years so, having subject matter experts on the team for each vendor as FTEs simply doesn't make good business sense. Outsourcing to independent experts for these activities will give access to the expertise when its is required.  Each of Livingstone Group's mega vendor practices is lead and supported by a team of experts who have worked both for the vendors directly, negotiation and building contracts and with many of the world’s largest and most complex organizations, using their specialist expertise to advise on contract renewals, negotiations, audits, compliance, and much more.
