Challenge

The IT of many companies has grown in recent years. IT now has a key role to play as an innovation engine. For many reasons (e.g. rising costs or complexity), challenges have often been approached situationally, so that insular solutions have arisen in many companies. A higher-level strategy is missing.

The result:

  • Unstructured data landscapes without defined responsibilities.
  • Multiple application landscapes, separated from each other.
  • Different systems perform the same or similar functions.
  • Difficult data transfer between applications.
  • Numerous logins for different systems: Users have to log in constantly.
  • Costly maintenance of redundant data.

Many companies are therefore confronted with the questions:

  • How can IT be managed?
  • Can the current application landscape be converted into a sustainable target? Is this even possible during operation?
  • How can I know which files can be stored in the cloud without any concerns?
  • What are the security aspects that need to be considered?
  • How can the customer base be harmonized with the data obtained by the online presence?

 

Solution Approach

Together with our customers, we develop a needs- and goal-oriented corporate architecture. We analyze and question the business strategy. This is also in view of their orientation in the context of digitalisation. At the same time, we analyse the actual situation of IT.

The development of a corporate architecture can not be achieved with a top-down or with a bottom-up approach. Rather, the ideal enterprise architecture arises from the interaction between strategic initiatives and implementation in processes, organization, infrastructure and data.

We are independent consultants. This allows us to make a neutral assessment of the existing execution bases (Foundation for Execution). We uncover gaps, inefficiencies and redundancies in the processes and the organization and develop optimization measures. We also analyze the data landscape, which is one of the most important foundations for the design of digital capabilities. A comprehensive and structured view of the company’s data forms the basis. Based on this, we review the existing IT infrastructure and develop the optimized overall architecture.

On the basis of a roadmap, we define measures that can be implemented quickly, easily and cost-effectively. These achieve immediate effect and provide the impetus for the next steps.

Our approach is industry-independent and flexible. It is based on proven best practice approaches. At the same time, we are guided by established standards such as TOGAFor ArchiMate.
