What skills does a Consultant IT need to master?

A freelance IT consultant is well versed in all current information systems, i.e., all the company resources that enable information management. 

He knows the specifics of the Web and the functions of all your software packages (office automation, administration, DTP, etc.), as well as project management tools (SQL server, Red Hat, etc.). Some software is in English, so he must be comfortable with operational English. 

A freelance IT consultant has excellent organisational and project management skills. He is a communicator with good interpersonal and listening skills who seeks to develop your company's practices and educate.

In which project is a IT consultant involved?

Whether it is renewing the technologies of your company that have become obsolete, setting up a business intelligence solution or launching new IT projects, an IT consultant guides you in using the new technologies necessary for the proper functioning and optimisation of your information systems.

In addition, he helps you to deploy information storage and transmission technologies (blockchain or cloud computing). He can also assist you with your needs in terms of IT security or even IT maintenance.

How to choose a IT consultant?

Depending on your project, an IT consultant advises you on the technologies you need to integrate in your company. Make sure that they know the technologies that you use within your company and that they are proficient in the technical solutions relating to your computer system. Evaluate his working methods by asking him to provide you with professional references.
