Efficiency at the Enterprise Level
Holistic assessment of enterprise-level operations like services, sales & marketing and indirect spend can reveal areas to significantly improve efficiencies and lower cost while accelerating digital transformation. As areas ripe for optimization are identified, key strategies like automation, re-engineering internal processes, demand management and redundancy consolidation can be considered, developed and applied.
“How can companies reduce their cost structure to make sure they align with the demand in the marketplace now, and in the long-term?” Batra said. “Is there a different way to think about needs? Based on that, organizations can adjust cost structure while eliminating low-value activities.”
Analysis begins with a baseline overview of current business operations, key performance indicators and on-site observation to establish hypotheses to best serve needs. Deep analysis of factors like risk, dependencies, business impact, timing and outcomes play an important role in providing appropriate recommendations and a clear path to kickoff. Our rapid assessment approach is aimed to accelerate implementation initiatives within a matter of days or weeks depending on scope and individual needs.
Strategic Optimization in IT Development and Engineering
Optimizing engineering and IT processes help businesses reduce development costs, increase transparency and accelerate time-to-market for maximum value and more immediate returns.
We have found that engineering transformation revolves around four areas:
- Engineering process optimization
- Demand management; with a focus on project prioritization based on business value
- Improvements to infrastructure
- Optimizing global operating models
“Prioritize where there might be opportunities and identify where you might be overspending, so you can scale back and focus on those higher-impact projects,” Batra said.
