The digital landscape will be transformed over the next decade. Companies that have ridden through the downturn should prepare to be the leaders when the upturn comes. Cloud computing, the drive of consumer products like the iPad into the corporate world and always-on connectivity, is changing the relationship of IT and the business.
This will see the democracy of applications that will radically alter the role and responsibilities of not just technology itself, but the organisations that use them, the Chief Information Officers that manage them and the customers that benefit from them. For once, having your head in the Cloud will be considered a pre-requisite.
Our IT strategy, enterprise and architecture consultancy practice works with organisations and business leaders to define and develop the technology and sourcing strategies they need to transform the way they work and allows them to respond to the ever changing information technology environment.
Capabilities and Benefits
Our pragmatic approach to delivering technology solutions that drive business objectives means we understand how IT strategy and enterprise architecture can impact your capabilities and workforce. Our use of our methodology, questionnaires and diagnostic tools accelerates data gathering and decision making. We equip our clients with the understanding and ability to successfully implement what we have recommended. Making the IT strategy actually work is what makes it valuable.
To build an agile strategy is akin to having a car sat nav versus a detailed road atlas. A sat nav gives you enough detail to make decisions to point you in the direction you wish to go, whereas a road atlas may be factually correct, but contains unnecessary information for the task at hand. Our use of industry frameworks such as Togaf, ITIL and Zachman has a positive impact on your capacity to be responsive and competitive.
The Capability Maturity Model (CMM) is a 5 tier process i mprovement path used to develop and refine an organisation's software development process. Using a methodology such as CMM allows us to effectively map your functionality and resources and create an architecture inventory so we can understand where the gaps are, and then help to address them.
As an integral part of our delivery, Hitachi Consulting offers industry insight, knowledge transfer and support across internal and external communications, behaviours, change, reputation and risk management. This ensures the real value and control, stays with you.
Organisations that succeeded in the last recession were driving for growth. We can learn from them and use that knowledge combined with pioneering thought leadership and global business intelligence, to design IT strategies that are innovative and agile - just like our specialist management consultancy team.
