Research & Advisory

Your teams need practical, in-context advice to ensure your strategy and projects run smoothly. The IBRS research and advisory service provides on-going, deep advice and guidance to you and your teams. Our advisors discuss your situation in detail, review your projects and documentation, compare it with the best practices we see in the market, and provide practical, implementable recommendations. Our goal is to make sure your team is successful – every step of the way.


IBRS has workshops covering a broad range of topics – from best practices in data management to vendor strategies. Use these workshops to upskill your people, inject new thinking into teams, or kick off discussions for new strategies and projects. IBRS workshops are never cookie-cutter affairs. Your lead advisor will work with you to tailor the workshop to deliver the specific objectives you need, run the event, and provide written feedback and ‘next steps’.

Cyber & Risk Network

The IBRS CIO cyber and risk network (CyRiN) is a vendor independent forum for CIOs to share with, and learn from, each other. CIOs are increasingly being asked to report on cyber security to their boards. Yet many Australian organisations cannot support a full cyber security team, let alone a dedicated CISO.
CyRiN provides practical, time-critical information, better practices, case studies, and a powerful support network to organisations without a dedicated CISO.


IBRS assurance provides independent expertise throughout every stage of your project to make sure you are continually getting the right advice for the best chance of success. Our advisors provide consulting and mentoring so you can upskill as we assist you in making sure you have the technology to achieve your objectives.


IBRS consulting provides highly experienced talent, all experts in their fields, backed by IBRS’s research, best practice frameworks and practical processes. Our consulting expertise includes: ICT strategy, Cloud migration planning, ICT cost optimisation, software asset management, data maturity, procurement, end user computing, digital workplace design, ICT structure and transformation, skills and capabilities development.

Vendor Research

IBRS vendor services provides custom strategic research for ICT vendors. All research engagements retain a high-degree of independence. We seek to understand what is really happening in the market, the major issue facing technology executives, and ways challenges can be creatively addressed with new solutions.
