Are you looking for a partner to help your digital transformation process?
Perhaps you feel your current processes are inefficient? Maybe your current technology is limiting your ability to scale and grow? It could be cumbersome and expensive to maintain, let alone enhance.
You’d like to start again – keeping the parts that work well, and removing those that don’t, ultimately building an integrated software infrastructure that meets your unique business needs without the associated high cost.
You need a well thought out digital transformation strategy.
The decision to migrate can be exciting, daunting even – without the internal skills or resources to make it happen. For a project of this scale – usually business-critical – you need the right team behind it from the outset.
Finding the right partner is half the battle won
To make a digital transformation project a success, you will need to make available an internal project lead or sponsor, and the people who know the relevant parts of your business inside out or know exactly where to find the relevant information. We will complement and work with them to figure out how to solve the puzzle.
Done well, and executed carefully, a digital transformation project has the power to unleash your company’s true potential – with the right technology in place plus the right software partner to develop and maintain it.
We will take the time to understand your business, your needs, and your goals. We’ll work with you to find the right solution and build or assemble it using our extensive cross-industry knowledge, software skills, and innovative thinking.
Our digital transformation process
We draw upon many years of digital transformation and project delivery experience.
We’ve developed a successful five-phase approach that ensures our clients get their desired outcomes.
- Audit & discovery The first step in digital transformation is to understand the business objectives, both current and future, your current technology infrastructure, and your current business processes. This will identify your pain points and inefficiencies.
- Review & analysis Based on the audit, we review the pain points and inefficiencies with you, try to establish blue sky scenarios, and analyse which off-the-shelf tools could best complement or replace your current systems. The resulting infrastructure will likely be a mixture of state of the art off-the-shelf platforms, integrated to seamlessly work together, and bespoke solutions that we create for you.
- Build roadmap We will then work with you and your teams to carefully plan the migration – mapping out the steps and identifying risks and dependencies at each of them. We will include time to evaluate and select new potential platforms that will need to be implemented.
- Select, implement, integrate & build Once we’ve understood the requirements across your business, chosen the software solutions and mapped out the migration, we’ll start the phase of selecting the best off-the-shelf tools, implementing and integrating them, while (in parallel) developing any bespoke solutions required. This is likely to happen in several, iterative sub-phases, each running through the same steps.
- Host, maintain & enhance We are in it with you for the long term. We can host any component of your new infrastructure from the moment it goes live. We can also work under a retainer to help you maintain your infrastructure by ensuring you are on the latest versions of all platforms and implement the latest security measures required. Finally, you may want to keep tweaking the infrastructure to squeeze out more efficiencies and growth opportunities, which we can help you with under the same retainer.
