Guide to Being an IT Consultant

An IT consultant is a professional who provides advice generally in a particular area of expertise such as SAP, Oracle etc. In addition to providing advice, IT consultants often implement, deploy and administer IT systems on businesses' behalf. IT consultants are not likely to be a direct employee of a company and are bought into an organisation due to a lack of in-house skills or available resource.

Unlike some contractors, a consultant may have multiple customers at one time and maybe more about a long-term relationship rather than a specific project. An IT consultant is rarely employed by the client but instead is in business for himself or for a consultancy firm.
