Business Technology Consulting to Evaluate & Implement the Right Platform
New technology environments are transforming business in every way. Business models are changing rapidly with falling barriers to entry, customer engagement models are changing with more access and choice, and infrastructure models are changing with maturity in Cloud and SaaS platforms.
As this environment continues to evolve, businesses face complex, dynamic and sometimes confusing choices across the technology landscape, making it difficult to evaluate and implement the right platform. Sometimes the wrong technology choices can end up becoming a multi-million dollar drag on the business, rather than an asset.
Systems In Motion's technology consulting practice is focused on helping clients make the right technology choices, design the appropriate architecture and build applications that drive competitive differentiation. In many cases, this means eliminating expensive software licenses by designing solutions based on open source tools, and reducing cost of infrastructure by implementing Cloud and SaaS solutions.
Business technology Services focus on long-term value creation across three areas:
Business Transformation: Business Transformation services use a structured framework to develop measurable improvement in business value. Transformation solutions drive change in business metrics, focused on technology enablement of new revenue streams, improved customer experience, or reorganized operations to create free cash flow.
We help transform our client's business along two dimensions:
Topline improvement: Our goal is to enable our clients to build agile and flexible architectures that can leverage new technology platforms to transform business processes, while retaining their core competencies and intellectual capital. We help design, deploy and operate technology platforms for new business models and extension into new markets.
Operating margin improvement: Our Strategic Sourcing framework uses best practices in organizational redesign to drive down SG&A cost and dramatically improve operating margins. This includes a detailed assessment of current sourcing strategies, enterprise risk scenarios and sourcing management processes to determine new operating structures that can improve productivity and asset leverage.
The transformation teams are typically integrated into our outsourcing engagements to ensure that senior leadership focus on innovation is a part the service delivery culture. Systems In Motion conducts regular workshops, both internally, and with clients to develop plans to reduce cost, increase flexibility, improve customer experience or drive new revenue.
Because we have a US-based Onshore IT services model, we are able to forge tight alignment with your IT and business teams, and bring thought leadership resulting in solutions tailored to match your organizational culture while supporting your ongoing business requirements.
Technology Innovation Technology Innovation is core to Systems In Motion's service delivery operations. We understand that by leveraging new, innovative technology frameworks, businesses can leapfrog traditional competitors, gain market leadership, and dramatically improve efficiency.
Technology innovation services ensure long-term capability and flexibility of your IT architecture across applications, data, and infrastructure. Our Enterprise Architecture (EA) teams effectively link business strategy, business process, and technology to drive alignment, agility, and interoperability.
SIM Labs: Our Silicon Valley Innovation Hub: Our approach to technology innovation is firmly rooted in investments in IP development, and partnership with leading Silicon Valley companies at the forefront of new technology products, specifically in Digital Media, Social Networking, SaaS, and Cloud solutions. Our Silicon Valley development center works closely with these companies to develop next generation technology solutions for our customers.
Systems In Motion's Onshore delivery center in Ann Arbor, MI creates US-based centers of technology expertise to provide our clients with the operations capabilities and resources to move their legacy systems to these new models.
Operations Excellence Operations excellence consulting provides our clients with services and solutions focused on boosting operational efficiency. We offer business process management services to help customers achieve alignment between their business goals, and technology assets.
Operations excellence consulting focuses on two key issues:
IT process management: Our IT Governance and Process Management solution provides program management and portfolio management services, including establishment of Program Management Office. We also help customers establish stronger internal and collaborative development and maintenance processes through use of best practices in Agile, and Rational Unified Process (RUP).
To ensure operational excellence and deliver continuous process improvement, we align our delivery and management processes to the size and maturity of each client organization. Our IT Process Excellence consulting services are built on industry standard frameworks such as CMM, ITIL, and Lean Six Sigma.
Business process management: Systems In Motion's technology management services are inherently designed to focus on value creation through process transformation. By building service delivery operations that include integrated senior consulting leadership, we guide process innovation through analysis of business flows over the application and infrastructure assets under management and recommend 'change initiatives' that lead to strategic value creation.
Our team of senior industry leaders have decades of experience as operational CIOs, technology entrepreneurs, and IT service delivery managers who bring a common sense approach to integrating business and technology imperatives. These leaders are an integral part of any client engagement because we understand that the ultimate objective of an outsourced relationship is for us to help improve our clients' global business competitiveness.
