Can anyone recommend a consultant that can perform an IT organizational assessment and recommend a forward looking IT Department structure, given all the recent changes in the IT landscape?  I have an opportunity to restructure the Information Systems team as the job becomes data interfacing between cloud-hosted systems instead of installing system software and upgrades; and to address the new normal for Academic and Research Computing staffing as we address “Big Data” as a major and discipline and receive large private protected data sets from government granting agencies.

We have used Delta Initiative in the past.   They have helped me do significant restructuring as well as goal setting, strategic planning and have been very helpful in developing a forward looking approach.  We have looked at both technical as well as academic/online education initiatives in my area.   I've copied their CEO's contact information below.   Feel free to contact me off line for more details.
