Both business and ICT are constantly being challenged by a faster moving market.
Disruptions that change the game are everywhere.
These challenges are constantly testing your architecture’s resilience and your ability to remain aligned
with your organisation’s business needs and goals.
Helping you overcome them means assisting you in the following areas:
Boots on the ground
We will always offer you hands-on guidance with the execution of your plans, regardless of the service you choose and the advice we formulate. Producing a nicely worded, head-in-the-clouds advice and just moving on to the next client is not the way we work.
We can also help you in partner selection. Although we are a part of the Cronos Groep, seeking our advice is by no means an obligation to utilize other services offered by Cronos or its subsidiaries.
A typical architectural exercise consists of taking your current IT and business service catalogs and your organisation’s chosen business strategy. If needed, this must be elaborated to acquire the level of detail needed to make informed decisions on how to move forward. Next is creating the image of where you want to end up and building an actionable plan of how to get there. The final phase is execution of the plan, follow-up and quality assurance.
ICT Architecture Discovery Approach
As your business is evolving rapidly, the ICT architecture needs to evolve at least at the same speed, ideally faster.
To ensure that you are ready to play a pro-active role within your company and to enable you to remain/become aligned with your organization’s business needs and goals, we present you the ICT Architecture Discovery Approach.
In this Discovery process, we start out by mapping your current AS-IS ICT landscape. All the needed input will be gathered by interviewing your stakeholders and by consulting your existing ICT Organisation. The outcome of this exercise provides the baseline to determine opportunities and challenges.
- Current ICT Inventory
- Business Strategy
- Current ICT Strategy
From this baseline on, we define a number of possible improvements within your ICT landscape. These improvements are based on pre-determined best practices, industry standards and experiences from other customers. This allows us to define in a rather short timeframe a fit-for-use TO BE Architecture.
- Create ICT Service Catalog
- Create Business Service Catalog
This TO-BE ICT architecture will contain a description of the future state architecture and per action item an estimated cost and the business value is defined. This will result in a very practical roadmap offering you a perfect and consistent view on what your next steps are, which dependencies are applicable etc.
- ICT Architecture Principles (TO-BE)
- Action Items (TO-BE)
- ICT Roadmap (TO-BE)
