Technology and Digital Rapid Assessments
Aligning innovation with business strategy
To be truly effective, an organization’s technology and digital strategy and road map should go hand in hand. The strategy sets the future-state vision for implementing innovation and aligns it with business goals while the road map establishes the necessary efforts or projects to realize that vision. However, without the right perspective and guidance, you may not make technology decisions that truly meet your needs or make appropriate digital framework decisions.
Many companies make technology investments without a specific destination point. There is a significant difference between implementing technology and having a true strategy. However, with the right direction and design, technology can be effectively positioned as an enabler to reach overall business goals.
RSM’s experienced technology and digital team has developed comprehensive assessments to help ensure that your organization is making the right investments to bring business strategy and technology strategy together. We analyze your current solutions and plans, identify where potential gaps exist and determine how best to remediate them.
How can we help you?
- IT Rapid Assessment: Making technology selections can be overwhelming, with myriad options to navigate as solutions become more attainable. Our assessment provides a discovery process to evaluate your information technology organization, followed by helping you develop a strategy and implement a road map for transformation. Assessments can analyze the entirety of your current technology platform, or target specific functional areas such as business applications, data analytics and operations.
- Digital Rapid Assessment: This assessment evaluates your people, process and technology, considering how you can enhance operations and efficiency, and potentially disrupt the model within your industry. We evaluate several specific processes, including software selection and strategies around the cloud, infrastructure and other change programs. Our team can determine where adjustments to your digital strategy may be beneficial, including modifying outsourcing or co-sourcing arrangements or potential custom development scenarios.
Often, companies struggle with determining where to start when considering a digital transformation initiative. Our assessments provide that critical starting point by outlining a strategy to bring your investments in innovation together with your business objectives, and giving you the tools to put that plan into action.
