IT Transformation Advisory

An optimized IT landscape

IT Transformation encapsulates the joint ambition between business and IT to modernize an IT-landscape. It covers all activities that focus on consolidating and modernizing applications to moving them into a cloud environment, ultimately getting them ready for the future and fit for both today’s and tomorrow’s demands.

As your Value Navigator, Navisco can support you throughout the entire transformation process, from initial target & value setting, scope & requirements definition and the formulation of winning business cases, to ensuring an effective delivery in line with your objectives, by continuously tracking progress and keeping a close eye on maximizing value and minimizing risk.

Current challenges

A complex sea of objectives

IT landscapes grow over time, with new elements being introduced to address specific business challenges and/or requirements. Often this happens without taking into consideration the wider enterprise architecture, resulting in an expansive and heterogenous landscape, with a lack of integration across systems as well as multiple data silos. Not only is this ineffective, it is also expensive to maintain and ultimately affects the performance of the business.

To improve the level of level of IT maturity, businesses are embarking on complex transformation journeys, with the ambition to formulate and implement futureproof IT strategies that effectively support the business goals, whether that be to:

  • benefit from new technology trends
  • develop the product portfolio
  • keep up with the competition

Good to know

TRANSFORMATIONS ARE HARD…

Failure Rate 70%

…which leads to a large proportion of such endeavors either failing completely, or vastly underdelivering against the originally set objectives. According to recent research, 70% of digital transformations fall short of their objectives, often with profound consequences. (1)

We share some typical critical observations during transformation processes:

  • Major milestones have been missed for different reasons

  • External costs have increased dramatically against original planning

  • Different key stakeholders claiming not to be responsible

  • External partner(s) are stepping back from responsibility

  • Increasing dissatisfaction and unrest within the project team

  • First key people leaving the scenery, creating capability gaps

To minimize the risk of this happening, there are a number of key success factors that need to be born in mind.
