Our Industries

IT Services

As traditional outsourcing and managed services become increasingly commoditised and clients request cloud based, data-driven digital transformation services instead from their service providers, systems integrators have to rapidly and dramatically transform their portfolio and operating model to stay relevant and maintain market share. Clients also now typically expect some initial consulting work from a technology partner to provide expert and impartial sourcing advice before actually choosing to move ahead with a large scale transformation or migration programme.

Wilton & Bain works with some of the biggest global organisations in the systems integration world to support them by bringing on board senior leaders who are able to take them on the journey to adapt to this changing environment and ensure their survival and future growth. We also partner with some boutique, innovative companies who are leading the way in this new ecosystem to build senior management teams who can drive growth and help them to scale up. Our deep content knowledge and industry specialism allows us to access talent from across the entire market and support clients no matter where they are in their evolution journey.
