About ELCA Advisory

ELCA Advisory is your trusted partner for successful digital transformations. Our services are around three pillars: IT Advisory, Professional Services, and Business Consulting. We bridge business and IT providing tailor-made strategies. Our consultants provide expert advice and methodical approaches on latest technologies and new business needs. Pragmatic and result-driven, we help shape digital strategies and state-of-the-art IT and business consulting services across several industries, including Financial Services, Public Administration, Health, and Energy. ELCA Advisory also delegates people. With 55+ years of experience, leveraging the innovation expertise of ELCA Group, we know what works and what doesn’t when advising our customers.

At ELCA Advisory, a part of the ELCA Group, our mission is to accelerate Switzerland’s digital transformation.  We collaborate with market-shaping clients in Switzerland’s most important sectors to envision and jointly create their future in the digital age, combining in-depth industry-focused business and IT-consulting with professional services capabilities, helping our clients move forward with a proven and pragmatic approach, tailored to their situation.

We are uncompromisingly independent in our advice and, when truly beneficial for our clients, collaborate deeply with our ELCA Group and ecosystem partners to accelerate and ensure transformational impact. ELCA Group is the leading independent Swiss partner for digital transformation and technology, with comprehensive expertise at the forefront of technology and world-class implementation and innovation capabilities that go well beyond advice, built over more than 55 years.

Our Professional Services practice also delegates Project Managers when clients need “steady hands” with deep real life project management experience, who know what works and what does not.   Project management at ELCA Advisory is not about administration, it is about delivering great work and lasting impact with our clients.
