IT capabilities often develop over time as organizations grow and react to environmental and marketplace changes. The end result: A patchwork of discrete solutions and legacy systems that get the job done but need maintenance, attention and improvement.
Casewise Business Transformation experts help clients align their organization’s IT estate with overall strategy. Working with the CIO and IT department, Casewise provides a clear, comprehensive view of current IT capabilities and assets so IT leadership can rationalize, consolidate and modernize its technology.
Casewise focuses on three core disciplines:
1. Enterprise Architecture.
We create a 360-degree picture of the organization, including strategy, people, processes, information, technology and location, as well as external factors like markets, customers and competitors. All of these building blocks work together to inform the corporate leadership’s critical business decisions.
2. Business architecture.
We focus on daily operations to catalog all corporate capabilities, define products and services, visualize resources and document processes. This allows COOs (Chief Operations Officers), strategic planners and their teams the ability to understand roles and responsibilities, and quickly adapt to change.
3. IT architecture.
We provide an accurate model of your IT organization, including its components and how they align. IT architects document specialized processes, catalog resources, and optimize software, hardware and networking assets to support the Chief Information Officer (CIO), Chief Technology Officer (CTO) or security officers.
