Technology Consulting Roadmap: Three Steps to the Next Level of Digital Maturity
We bring your organization to the next level of digital maturity in a structured, three-step approach, considering IT infrastructures, application modernization, and the potential arising from using the latest innovative services to benefit higher-level corporate goals.
We collect and condense relevant information and data on, for example, current conditions and processes, objectives and target scenarios, any analyses and assessments already carried out, and applicable framework conditions. For this purpose, we use structured survey methodologies and organize joint workshops as required and according to the initial situation.
- Compilation of relevant framework conditions at the strategic, organizational, financial, technical, and ,legal levels
- Prioritization of identified non-functional requirements
- Overview of internal and external factors influencing the future process, application, and system architecture
- Stakeholder overview
We analyze and assess the initial situation (e.g., the existing system landscape), combine requirements in a structured manner, and evaluate them with a target picture and specified, measurable success factors. To do this, we draw on our Arvato Systems SLAM (System Landscape Assessment Method), among other tools.
- Technical overview of the current environment
- Comprehensive GAP analysis
- Consulting, interpretation, and recommendations for action on the results of the analysis
We develop the technical design for the solution according to the product and business requirements. We establish a common understanding of the necessary changes at the technical level and perform proofs-of-concept as needed to test new or unknown technologies. We also prepare an initial cost analysis for further action.
- Holistic overview of the target solution, including system architectures
- Elaboration of migration strategy(s)
- Evaluation of identified potential risks and dependencies
- Evaluation of alternative concepts and scenarios, if applicable
- Initial cost estimate for setup and operation
- Overview of future responsibilities, for example, for the regular operation
Arvato Systems SLAM: Our Tool for Analyzing and Evaluating Application Landscapes
System landscapes, with their processes and applications, have often grown heterogeneously and complexly. With our Arvato Systems SLAM tool, we analyze your system landscape as part of our consulting assignment and evaluate tailored modernization strategies.
To do this, we work with you to evaluate the applications and processes in your landscape about various aspects such as added business value, operations & AMS, architecture, integration, product lifecycle, and security, and generate individual recommendations for action by common migration strategies. On request, we can provide you with various analyses and assessments, such as a cross-application evaluation of your application landscape about security aspects, and advise you comprehensively and realistically on this basis.
