Optimize your Enterprise Architecture to stand out from the crowd

How often do you think of your business goals in terms of your IT investments? Or vice versa? You don’t gain a competitive advantage through just one thing — but ensuring your Enterprise Architecture (EA) is modernized, optimized, and aligned is a great place to start.

From facilitating successful digital transformation to accelerating your cloud migration, Enterprise Architecture can help you streamline, differentiate, and transform for gaining significant competitive advantages. By improving your EA capabilities, you will be able to:

Reduce your IT costs, making better use of your budget.

Increase your agility as you take on new projects and applications.

Optimize your data for better decisions.

Improve customer experience through digital transformation.

Achieve alignment between your business goals and your IT investments.

And those are just some of the benefits. An optimized Enterprise Architecture is a strategic differentiator for creating and maintaining your competitive edge. We’re here to help through our Enterprise Architecture Consulting services. Here’s how.

Reduce costs

Through our Enterprise Architecture services, we’ll help you take careful stock of what you’re investing in and where you’re spending. Instead of starting by cutting costs, we’ll first determine which assets aren’t driving business value — and which can be improved moving forward.

Leverage our tools and dashboards to control rising costs. Operate with greater confidence and flexibility. Our EA consulting services can help you reduce integration complexity and costs, leverage more cost-effective cloud solutions, and optimize management of data. This will help reduce your costs and drive competitive advantages.

Increase agility

Shaving the time-to-value off of your new technology investments is one of the principal ways to boost your competitive advantage in the short term. It’s also a direct benefit of improving agility through your Enterprise Architecture.

Our EA consulting services help to increase agility by optimizing your business and IT investments in the context of your existing EA. We’ll help you determine how to get the fastest time-to-value for your new solution investments.

With our Application Portfolio Assessment, we quickly determine which applications are promising for growth, which are destined for retirement, and which simply need reevaluation or remediation. This gives you both a quick win and methods you can use for years to come.

Optimize the value of your data

Your organization already creates huge amounts of data — but are you exploiting the insights you can get from it? What could your company achieve with better access to — and better understanding of — your data? Are you managing it effectively, or could you do better?

We’ll walk you through the vision, planning, organization, process, and monitoring of an optimized Information Architecture. Based on decades of EA and data architecture experience, we’ll help you build an architecture that enables:

  • Smarter, faster business decisions
  • Business performance monitoring and forecasting
  • New sales opportunities
  • Connectivity across all your departments

Improve the customer experience

From ultra-fast shipping, to real-time information updates, to personalized offers and mobile access to everything – customer expectations are higher than ever in both B2C and B2B industries. Your Enterprise Architecture must be designed for delivering the great experiences and fast processes they expect.

Our EA consulting services can help you identify and resolve potential CX issues, improve how you monitor customer satisfaction, create a 360 view of the customer, and enable seamless omnichannel customer experiences. You’ll not only keep up with customer expectations; you’ll surpass them.

Smiling People Teamwork

Achieve better business and IT alignment

By focusing on improving Enterprise Architecture, you’ll achieve better alignment between your business goals and your IT investments. In turn, you’ll see more of a competitive advantage as your goals, resources, and investments align.

Instead of wasting time developing an application that will become outdated in a year or two, you can focus on implementing agile methodologies that deliver value to your vision for years to come. Instead of retiring a platform because it seems expensive, you can justify costs according to your specific business goals.

Alignment between your IT investments with your business goals goes beyond the IT department – extending its benefits to your business units, customers, and ability to compete in the new digital frontier.
