Technology and Digital
Tech and Digital Innovation That's Future-Proof.
Technology and digital disruptors have perhaps the greatest potential to reshape markets than any force in history. The impacts of such disruptions are far-reaching, affecting every organization, in every sector, in every industry.
At North Highland, we help organizations drive market gains by aligning technology and digital with strategy and culture, optimizing the types of tools and services that drive informed decision-making, enable internal collaboration and create platforms for meaningful customer engagement.
How We Can Help
Businesses today are challenged to deliver value quickly, at scale, and with agility. These organizations know they need to adopt a digital approach but are challenged to make it work. Digital Transformation helps customers become a digital business across its people, processes and technology.
IT organizations must ensure their technology, systems, and data are aligned with their business stakeholders in order to maximize value. Technology Governance helps establish and evolve organization-wide IT services, such as architecture, security, and infrastructure.
From strategy to development to support, we solve business problems with digital technology. Web, mobile, CRM, CMS, or intranet, we create custom, customer- and employee-focused digital applications that are rapidly built and can be continuously improved throughout their life.
System Selection & Benefits Realization
We help organizations assess their business needs, identify, select and deploy the optimal enterprise software solutions to meet their requirements and maximize the value of their technology investments.

Enterprise SaaS: Not Your Father's ERP
Enterprise Software-as-a-Service (eSaaS), or cloud-based ERP, is a relative newcomer to the ERP world. Even so, the adoption rate is rapidly increasing–according to analyst firm Gartner, 47% of organizations surveyed planned to move a majority of their core systems to the cloud within five years.
County Achieves Autonomy Over IT Services with Agile Approach
One of the largest county governments in North Carolina entered into an agreement to share technology resources with a local city government in late 2010. After operating as a shared services function for a few years, it became apparent in 2014 that the model no longer met the needs of either entity. A decision was reached to separate operations, leaving the county without a technology architecture capable of delivering integrated citizen services or viable disaster recovery capabilities.
