Our creative resource acquisition model provides clients with an attractive alternative to the traditional staff augmentation model while giving York the opportunity to attract and retain skilled productive IT professionals.

Our flexible engagement model delivers significant efficiencies in the areas of IT contractor resource selection, on-boarding, management, reporting, and transition (including knowledge transfer).  All of which allow hiring managers to focus their time on delivering projects; resources to become productive sooner and talented individuals can be brought on faster. Our highly collaborative, blended-team approach with client resources is the backbone to our success.

We believe in a model for utilizing contracted IT resources that will produce improved results, including the following:

  • Minimize significant headcount fluctuations
  • Insure retention of key resources
  • Increase vendor accountability
  • Improve forecasting
  • Ensure knowledge transfer

Areas of expertise: ERP, IT Security, Applications, Infrastructure, BI/DW, PMO, and QA.

Helping organizations increase their performance through the analysis of existing organizational problems and development of plans for improvement.

We provide our clients with the expertise and leadership required for successful project definition, end-to-end delivery, and management. From the strategic thinking required during project inception to ensuring that new systems and efficient processes are successfully deployed and adopted by an organization, we bring a consistent, rigorous, and analytical approach to help our clients meet their business goals. We help our clients bridge the disconnect between IT and overall business strategy.

Under the umbrella of IT management consulting, we offer five key services:

  • Strategic & Tactical Planning
  • IT/Business Alignment
  • Change Management
  • Process Improvement
  • IT Governance & Standardization

Please contact us if you’re interested in learning more. 

We deliver proven leadership with the experience and capacity to transform a company’s IT capabilities and align technology investments with your business goals.

Many organizations in transition find themselves in a situation where short-term and long-term technology needs are unclear. Due to an unexpected CIO vacancy or organizational change, the result may be a void in IT leadership and a potential slowdown in key IT initiatives.

A proper CIO search and selection process could take 6-12 months to complete and promoting from within on an interim basis which could potentially result in the IT leadership being unable to meet the requirements of the business. 

At York, our experienced recruiters can conduct a search to find a skilled interim CIO who can quickly step in to keep the IT organization running smoothly, and allow the business the time it needs to hire the right person for the CIO position.

Typical services include:

  • Governance, controls, and efficiencies implementation
  • Strategic technology planning
  • Merger & integration planning
  • IT organization assessment
  • Application platform planning
  • Infrastructure optimization
  • IT staff, vendors, contracts, budgets, and IT assets management

Fostering professional growth and development through the power of networking and collaboration.

Think IT Association was established in the Twin Cities in 2009 by York Solutions as a way to provide additional value to our clients and consultants, as well as the local IT community in general. Think IT is a professional development association designed for IT professionals at all levels. Think IT currently has over 1,800 members across its 8 groups in the Twin Cities, along with new chapters in the Chicago and St. Louis markets.

Most Think IT groups meet on a monthly basis in an informal, roundtable format with a different member from the group facilitating (not presenting) each session. Members also have the opportunity to participate in a mentorship program in which they are matched up with other IT professionals to share knowledge and advice.

In addition to monthly group meetings encompassing all aspects of IT technical and leadership principles, members of Think IT Association are able to participate in a comprehensive mentorship program for all IT resources, from the highly technical to the most senior leadership talent. This program is designed to assist all levels of IT professionals in achieving their career goals.
