It's all about People, Processes, Partners and yes, Technology too.
Cloud, Big data, Mobile, BYOD, Social media etc. all seem to come together at the same time. You want it. You want it now.
Your IT department tries to do a balancing act between keeping the lights on, extending the life cycle of your existing systems and trying to adapt and support these latest developments. That will cause them being squeezed between the old world and the world you and your company want to be in. Bad news: other than starting a greenfield operation outside your current company structure there is not a simple receipy how to get there. It is hard work and takes guts, brains, time and money. It needs different mindsets, skillsets. It needs the adoption of various technologies which not so long ago were abondonded from the IT agenda. And it needs close cooperation during such journey with the various business owners. Not playing the blame game but constructive transformation of both IT demand and supply, hand in hand.
Nuphar Management Solutions helps your company to setup up a roadmap to transform the company and the IT and supports the implementation of such dramatic change program. The focus of the existing "IT department" needs to change from hardware and software technology towards delivering IT services and solutions, value for the company.
The balance in the IT teams will have to change from traditional IT development and engineering towards the modern business analyst, scrum masters, and people who can bridge the old and new world. Likely people with a higher profile in IT and business, being able to translate the requirements of the ever changing business to confiuration settings in cloud, defining integration requirements, understanding the possibilities and limiations of the various software and cloud service option. The required mix is rapidly changing. Time for a new view on your IT!
The international and up-to-date experience of my partners and myself will give you a swift and practical assessment of your situation in order to design a roadmap with the required changes for the future. Sometimes the company needs faster change. In such case some shortcuts can be built in but will always include a new sourcing strategy.
Our experience leads to the same concludion: successful "IT" is primarily not about technology, but much more about vision and attitude and how people in the organisation deal with the IT function. And how the IT function deals with people in the organisation. This usually implies that after analysis you should not expect proposals for huge investments in new IT hardware and software. But do expect clear and targetted proposals to improve the way people work, needed skills, integrated approaches (people + process + IT + partners) with small changes to systems, since we believe that systems per sé are not the main root causes for most IT problems.
Developing change plans with all stakeholders with focus on clear benefits, identifying and mitigating risks, projecting investments where needed and of course tangible results. Usually a change in sourcing will be part of the way forward. Once the plans have been agreed we can further help you with hands-on change management in order to implement or help implement the agreed plans.
We guide. We confrontate. We provocate. We warn. We teach. We cooperate. We fuel vision. We share experience. We may lead from the front, but soon from the back. And will get you on the new track.
