What we mean by that:
In times of cloud and co., more and more IT departments are asking themselves where and how they can still create value for their company. Some people see digitalization as the end of their value-adding activities, as the depth of production in IT departments is rapidly declining. We see digitization as an opportunity for the IT department. Your work continues to create value - only the tasks will (have to) change in this respect. We see the integration of cloud solutions into complex process chains, which also extend beyond our own company, as a value contribution of an IT department. The service composition (orchestration) of suppliers and services are also important factors in value creation: the user always receives precisely tailored services in terms of function and service quality. The procurement and provision of services for users outside their own company is a value contribution that IT departments of the future must and will also make. This includes, for example, complex service marketplaces or parts of complex eco-systems.
For this purpose, IT departments are transformed from being requirements fulfillers, offering the best services at the lowest price, into business enablers, developing new business models using IT services and operating at eye level with the specialist departments.
To achieve this, new ideas and fresh skills are needed. In the future, less will be developed in-house: Rather, it will be a matter of managing suppliers, evaluating solutions on the market and compiling solutions without having to describe requirements in detail and deliver test scenarios from specialist departments. All this happens in less time and shorter lifecycles, because the current best solution can be useless tomorrow. The focus is on building and maintaining a versatile IT landscape.
- We are working with and for customers to convert IT organizations so that IT landscapes can be prepared for transformation into the cloud. This enables customers to assess which applications are suitable for the cloud, which IT service processes need to change and how, and which decisions need to be made.
- The integration of cloud services requires new architectures with loose coupling, encapsulation and event-driven APIs that are also fully automated.
- We will advise you on which technologies are used and how, so that the path to the cloud and the consumption of cloud services takes place within the scope of your organisation's possibilities.
- We have developed models that have delivered compelling results for many customers. Customers have been able to develop roadmaps for transformation into the cloud, find the right partners to implement them, or even decide whether the right time is right today.
