Consultants and Contractors

by Oldefar In reply to consultant............

Most so called consultants are really contractors - paid to do a specific set of technical tasks like system or network administration.

A true consultant provides consultation - a perspective based on knowledge, expertise, and experience that provides the business and its technical staff to achieve objectives in better fashions.

Consulting vs Administration

by BMN In reply to Consultants and Contracto ...

As a consultant I attempt to provide insight as to how technology compliments the clients overall business strategy AND to provide options on how to capatilize on the latest innovations. I rely on my organizations extensive group of experts to provide excellent recommendations.

As an administrator, I help implement what the consultants recommend. I am too busy maintaining systems to assume I know everything about all areas of technology and consultants can help me direct the company to solutions that make sense.
