IT Managers

Situation

IT Managers want their programs to be executed to high standards while remaining on time and on budget. But programs that rely on manual processes built on questionable data run a high risk of going amber or red.

Solution

IT programs built on solid data foundations that are able to leverage automation help IT managers achieve the goal of delivering resilient, adaptable, successful outcomes.

Security Specialists

Situation

Security should be a critical consideration in every IT Program. Yet an incomplete view of data or an inaccurate analysis can expose the organization to vulnerabilities. As a result, although the underlying problem is data uncertainty, security ends up being perceived as a source of delay and a hindrance to moving programs along.

Solution

Innovation and security shouldn’t be at odds with each other. Security specialist who have a solid understanding of their data and integrate security protocols into their automation provide an organization the ability to deliver programs both quickly and securely.

Risk & Governance

Situation

Responding to an IT program audit should be straightforward if all the underlying data is in place. However, when the data is questionable, difficult to retrieve, or requires time consuming manipulation audits become diversionary, or worse, uncover issues previously unknown.

Solution

Programs which properly manage data, maintain an audit trail, and provide full transparency make the act of preparing for, and responding to, audits a straightforward exercise.

IT Finance Managers

Situation

It is essential to understand IT program financials such as cost to implement, cost of ownership, and revenue generated. Yet bad data makes it difficult to forecast costs or fully quantify business impact. As a result, Finance Teams are forced to treat IT programs as bloated cost centers with the ever- present risk of exceeding budget. Worse, dollars are lost as systems are overprovisioned, resources are underutilized, and opportunities are never realized.

Solution

With proper analytics, forecasts become much more accurate, total cost of ownership can be understood up front, and the financial business justification for any program can be accurately weighed.

Business Users

Situation

When the business sees a technology they want, the faster they can have it the better. The problem is that the IT department is often slow to deliver, which results in the business acquiring technology on their own. While this may be a quick fix, in the long run it opens the organization up to security gaps, regulatory concerns, and skyrocketing support costs.

Solution

By delivering IT programs faster, the IT department can become a better partner for the business. This allows the organization to take advantage of new technologies quickly without causing long term technology issues.

CIO

Situation

Organizations which don’t embrace new technologies will quickly be left behind. Yet existing staff are often spread too thin to keep the lights on and focus on new initiatives at the same time. If your organization isn’t able to move as quickly as the competition you risk not only losing market share, but crippling the business entirely.

Solution

By decreasing the time it takes to deliver new technology, your organization can outpace your competition and maintain the technological edge required to be a leader in the market.

Program Managers

Situation

When there is a lack of access to data, Program Managers are forced to build strategies and plans using incomplete information. This results in slow moving programs, inaccurate forecasting, and difficulties in recognizing when course corrections are required.

Solution

Accurate, accessible program data provides Program Managers with the evidence they need to develop and execute predictable, effective programs.

Engineers

Situation

In order to achieve a business outcome, technical solutions must be executed in the context of a well-run IT program. But changing requirements, unknown dependencies, and shifting schedules often leave engineers scrambling to build fixes on the fly.

Solution

IT programs which clearly present requirements, dependencies, and timelines allow engineers to build elegant end-to-end technical solutions for their business customers.
