We enable you to determine how efficient and effective your current IT operating model is in meeting the demands of your business
Many organisations experience frustration with the cost and performance of the technology used to underpin their business operations. Our IT Fitness Assessment answers the critical question for CIOs – how can I cut costs within my budget or justify increasing my budget to fund the changes required?
As IT budgets come under increasing scrutiny an external independent assessment, with comparators to other similar organisations, can be invaluable to securing approval for change/ investment. The outcome can enable your business to deliver better customer service, accelerate new product/service introduction, and become more agile with a lower cost business infrastructure.
The assessment involves 4 key stages:
- Gather – stakeholder Interviews to document current landscape, applying specific focus on agreed assessment areas. Data capture to collate evidential information to back up interview findings
- Analyse – review and analyse audit questionnaire response and evidential information. Perform SWOT analysis and develop tower based review. Consolidate to create a holistic cross functional view of cost and performance against demand
- Develop – formulate recommendations for actions to facilitate change to deliver meaningful benefits. Develop strategic roadmap of initiatives to address risks identified. Includes small quick-win actions and longer-term recommendations
- Socialise – replay our findings to finalise and formalise the recommendations with internal stakeholders. Present recommendations to key stakeholders and facilitate discussions about next steps
Our IT Fitness Assessments are based on valuable industry insights and best practices. Wavestone provides proven methodology and experience in assessing your IT model to identify problems and opportunities to enhance the efficiency of your business
