Achieving agility by Right-Sourcing(TM) (Strategy Brief)

Published on

What if you could simplify your world view? Lifting out pieces of the landscape that could benefit from external resources, trusting a provider who didn’t also need to be “managed”, but could help you manage? You can strategically right-source™ the details of the systems and applications that make sense to your overall plan, while expanding your strategic focus beyond the day-to-day. Alternatively, carefully selected expertise can also help you see beyond short-term needs and IT silos into how pieces and parts fit into the much bigger picture.

Transcript of "Achieving agility by Right-Sourcing(TM) (Strategy Brief)"

  1. 1. ACHIEVING AGILITY BY RIGHT-SOURCING If you feel like you could use a better pair of binoculars—or even a telescope—you’re not alone. The world view of the CIO is reaching new heights. What was once the 5,000-foot view of systems, applications, and architecture, is now a 30,000-foot view that spans all internal operations, business strategy, and broader industry demands. What if you could simplify your world view? Lifting out pieces of the landscape that could benefit from external resources, trusting a provider who didn’t also need to be “managed”, but could help you manage? You can strategically right-source™ the details of the systems and applications that make sense to your overall plan, while expanding your strategic focus beyond the day-to-day. Alternatively, carefully selected expertise can also help you see beyond short-term needs and IT silos into how pieces and parts fit into the much bigger picture. ManageForce™ can make what seems like the impossible, possible. We can free you to focus on the many new dimensions of IT leadership. You can invest your time in strategic planning, such as: > Introducing game-changing technologies, including mobile, SaaS, business intelligence, and others > Readying IT for pop-up projects, e.g., an integration project or influx of end-users resulting from an acquisition > Migrating to a new version of your current platform or modernizing your infrastructure, e.g., private cloud > Driving revenue through customer digital experience, mobile technology, marketing automation, or supporting sales initiatives You can drive application efficiency by working with experts who are adept at: > Identifying quick-resolution items or issues that can be resolved internally, at a low cost > Scoping complex, large-scale efforts and long-term projects > Trouble-shooting and performing root-cause analysis to determine the source of recurring issues, once and for all > Investigating all layers of the stack for performance issues > Ensuring accurate documentation for end-users and IT > Doing more with native functionality vs. expensive “work-arounds” or third-party add-ons You can budget proactively, not reactively, as a result of: > Remaining flexible in your staffing costs > Prioritizing IT investments as determined by business need > Maximizing return on investment (ROI) for applications and systems through smarter utilization and management You can tend to internal customer service levels by: > Strengthening relationships with key constituencies, including application user groups and leaders within the business > Getting the right information to decision makers in the format most helpful to them > Ensuring excellence and consistency in end-user experience > Aligning architecture with business processes and objectives > Considering the needs of remote, traveling, or field-based employees, including mobile access You can get more from fewer resources through options for: > Accessing on-demand, senior-level experts when needed > Working with a dedicated team—even if you don’t require full-time employees > Sourcing temporary niche talent from a trusted provider STRATEGY BRIEF
