IT modernisation demands the ability to bridge diverse functions and technical disciplines as DevOps, Cloud, modern application architectures and cyber security blur historical organisational boundaries. Citihub Consulting’s consultants span the full technology stack and can act as catalysts to maximise the value of clients’ own specialists.
