Performance Technology

Cloud. Mobile. Big data. Analytics. Social media. These are more than buzz words. They represent a host of new technologies that are changing how organizations make decisions and manage information.

Today's IT professionals are focused on managing IT across the organization and keeping the business running cost effectively. Soon, an organization's future success will depend on IT delivering tangible value to the business. It will mean transcending day-to-day operational needs to help bring real change.

Our experienced professionals can help you rethink how you architect, deploy and manage technology. We can work with you to help accelerate business performance through technology transformation, enterprise intelligence, enabling technology and technology risk and security.

IT transformation

The pace at which technology is changing is creating uncharted risks that make navigating today's IT environment increasingly challenging.

CIOs have to evolve from providing tactical support for the business to becoming a strategic partner. You need to be able to turn information into insights when the business is looking to implement new technology for competitive advantage.

From where you are now to where you want to be, we can help you to:

  • Develop an IT strategy that aligns IT objectives with those of the business
  • Create an architecture design to align business and technology models
  • Implement sourcing approaches to improve flexibility and efficiency
  • Improve the performance of end-to-end processes and infrastructure
  • Introduce horizon technologies that change business and IT models

Enterprise intelligence

Enterprise intelligence is the innovative application of analytic insight, enterprise planning and world-class monitoring to achieve business objectives faster. It enhances enterprise IQ by allowing an organization to manage performance, risk and quality drivers at a process level.

We can help you:

  • Develop an information strategy to manage the information needed to execute business strategy
  • Develop risk and performance analytics to analyze process and business performance, identify opportunities for improvement, manage risk and enable driver-based decision-making
  • Use business intelligence to build repeatable solutions that can predict their business performance
  • Employ enterprise performance management to integrate strategic execution, planning and reporting

Enabling technology

Enabling technologies can help you to connect your utility systems to mobile, cloud and analytic enablement systems. They can also help you to select, design and optimize social platforms.

Our experienced professionals can work with you to:

  • Implement business architecture prototyping and visioning
  • Use ERP and optimization to extract value from existing investments
  • Initiate a finance transformation that focuses on regulatory, efficiency and risk
  • Undertake a supply chain transformation that focuses on improvements in procurement and operations planning

Technology risk and security

In a world of anytime, anywhere access to information, traditional, fixed security boundaries are gone. In their place, a virtual world rises. Mobile, cloud and social media allow the flow of information to reach far beyond the office walls.

The notion that any organization can be 100% secure is unrealistic in today's hyper-connected, borderless world. The question is not are you secure, but is the information that matters most secure enough?

Drawing on our in-depth technical and IT-related risk management knowledge we can help you to:
