Industry thinkers


The digital revolution is upon us. Sometimes it is the evolution of legacy systems that bring the most value. At Saratoga, we get this.

We’re technology specialists
As technologists we possess a full spectrum and an up-to-date understanding of all things technical. Our quality-centric culture means that we constantly work to improve products and lower the costs of external failure.

Technology modernisation
We offer the sharpest minds and means necessary to fully understand and craft solutions tailored to your needs. Our tools offer insight into your legacy technology to inform modernisation decisions and put you at the forefront of technology innovation.

People matter


Saratoga’s Strategic Business Analysis Advisory offering is built on the collective knowledge of the entire company. Our consultants have technology in their DNA and are experts at connecting the dots, pulling together Strategy Analysis, Business Analysis and IT Systems Analysis.

We’re dispensable
While seemingly counterintuitive, this practice demands that within teams knowledge sharing and trust build stronger teams and produce far more solid outcomes. We empower you by sharing our knowledge for your benefit.

Connecting people, technology and business
We’re the ideal partner for connecting people, technology and business opportunities. Modern analytical methods and best practices allow us to bridge the gap between what business managers require and what technology solutions deliver.

Holistic integrated framework


Saratoga’s Strategic Advisory is a 3-step journey that kicks off with a competency health-check to provide an all-round perspective of the business’ current climate. We map out a workable 12 month action plan which is both practical and innovative – your blueprint for impact-driven change.

Improving the odds for success
Our assessment framework provides a holistic view of your organisation’s unique challenges, actions, and outcomes necessary to inform modernisation decisions. All stakeholders are pulled into this planning process, ensuring alignment across business and enablement teams.

Together, we find creative ways to transform your existing capability for future digital advantage.
