- Functional scope: define scope by functional and geographic area, and benchmark current implementations versus best-in-class deployments
- Improvement opportunities: pinpoint opportunities that may leverage existing investments, significantly impact competitive standing in the marketplace, or drive accretive business value
- Go-forward roadmap: quantify value opportunities, defining your blueprint, and use a three-pillar approach to align your roadmap and your commercial deal
After quantifying value opportunities and defining your blueprint, solution architects help put your plan into action, providing guidance and tactical review in order to ensure that progress brings realization of defined objectives.
- Go-live: solution architects help put your plan into action, providing guidance and tactical review in order to ensure that progress brings realization of defined objectives
- Program governance: conduct high-level readiness and risk assessment, and facilitate development of a beneficial governance structure
- KPIs: determine how your business will measure the attainment of value and success of your implementation
- Best practices: enhance performance metrics and validate best practices through value engineering participation in Center of Excellence meetings
