Digitization creates winners and losers: on one hand new production processes, changes in market logic, and a shift in customer behaviour are upsetting proven business models. On the other hand products and processes are emerging open up unexpected opportunities for companies. If you want to profit from this process instead of being overwhelmed by it, you have to drive it forward in-house.
With our holistic, modular consulting approach, we help you align your company with the new challenges and seize the opportunities of digitization. The starting point is a cross-divisional analysis of where you stand and where it pays to act.
IT is becoming the central success but also risk factor of almost all companies and administrations.
The importance of IT is growing – the role of IT in companies is undergoing a paradigm shift. Hardly any company can be sustained today without a functioning IT. New challenges, such as end-to-end mobility or predictive maintenance, must be tackled. And these are just a few examples of digitization effects that will have to be made possible by the company’s IT in the future.
There is pressure to act in many companies and administrations
In many companies, the IT infrastructure is no longer up to date. This is usually caused by investments that were not made or were only aimed at short-term effects. This often results in a heterogeneous IT application landscape with many organically grown, weakly integrated special solutions.
As a result, error-proneness and also maintenance costs have increased and progress on the business process support side has almost come to a standstill.
A successful transformation requires not only reliable analysis and evaluation, but also the development of clear and appropriate target scenarios. Our approach uses all factors relevant to IT to track down the need for action in terms of IT and identifies opportunities to increase effectiveness and efficiency.
Together with all parties involved, we develop the future position of IT and an associated master plan that presents concrete projects with benefits, costs, risks and mutual dependencies. In addition to projects to support value-adding processes, this usually also includes projects for the consolidation, standardization and virtualization of IT, for the preparation of make-or-buy decisions and for IT architecture management. If required, we also accompany you through the most difficult stage: implementation.
