Press Release: My IT Matters joins OIA iManage Partner Network
28 August 2017
Office Information Australia (OIA) is pleased to announce that My IT Matters, headed by Scott Cooper, has joined our iManage Partner Network.
Scott, who was formally at King & Wood Mallesons for some 18 years in various roles including Programme Management, IT Commercial Management, Projects and Support, has a wealth of knowledge and experience in IT management and more specifically content management.
Now, as My IT Matters, Scott will focus on helping businesses to transition from systems and processes which cause them frustrations and pain to those which simply work. Focusing on content management as well as client relationship and engagement management, he is promoting environments where the IT really does matter to one where IT does what it’s meant to.
“Professional services as an industry operates from a very privileged position, due to their profitability and prestige they are often able to employ highly skilled, commercially savvy and academically strong resources. Having developed in that culture, I wanted to build a business that can deliver that same calibre of resources to organisations and businesses which don’t necessarily fit that mould. One of the first decisions I needed to make when deciding to go out on my own was product and partner alignment, I know content management is a critical business system so that was an easy choice and having worked with OIA for almost 15 years, I know them to be a professional, reputable and personable business, a company I am proud to partner with.” said Scott Cooper.
Stephen Litton, Managing Director – OIA added “We’ve worked with Scott for a long time now and his expertise and experience is a huge addition to our channel. We’ve long taken the approach that we can’t be everywhere without stretching our own resources too thin and therefore compromising our quality of service. Having a partner based in Queensland will allow us to better serve that market and we look forward to helping Scott build My IT Matters and develop the Queensland market.”
The acclaimed author Nicholas Carr wrote a book back in 2004 called ‘Does IT Matter?’. The premise of the book is that as the capability of technology continues to improve and advance IT services will eventually go the way of water, electricity, gas, etc. Specifically, when everything is functioning as it should, there will be no competitive advantage to be gained by your IT environment.
After several decades in the IT industry, we are inclined to agree with Nicholas with a couple of specific caveats, the most significant being that ‘everything needs to be functioning as it is supposed to be’. Unfortunately, the reality for many businesses is that this simply isn’t the case, on the back of this the business ‘My IT Matters’ was born. Our focus is your business, and when your systems are not functioning in harmony with the business strategy or internal processes then your IT REALLY DOES matter.
My IT Matters guides businesses facing frustrations with their existing systems to imagine a better way and then help to make it a reality, partnering with our client on that journey. Our goal and passion is assisting our clients in moving from a position where their IT DOES matter to one where it is simply a business enabler.
