Your Challenges

IT strategy is closely intertwined with business priorities, so that the process to build and clarify an IT roadmap is often triggered by:

  • New digital business opportunities or different strategic goals set by management
  • Continuous requirements to support business priorities and transformation efforts
  • The need to keep IT and business roadmaps consistent with each other

To align with business goals, IT departments must establish objectives, plans, and indicators to assess IT scenarios against expected business performance, and communicate their IT strategy roadmaps to all stakeholders.

Organizational complexity is often the first hurdle for companies that want to build and communicate an IT strategy roadmap.  Multiple lines of business and an ever greater number of programs must be identified and evaluated.  The maintenance of legacy systems and day-to-day IT support can divert resources that would otherwise be devoted to streamlining an IT portfolio and contributing to business transformation.

When market conditions change rapidly, IT departments often find themselves catching up to new business needs, especially when IT governance has not been a priority.

Our Solutions

MEGA solutions allow you to build an inventory of your IT landscape, assess it against performance improvement criteria, and develop transformation scenarios that help your organization navigate the path from strategy to execution.

Our solutions help you collaboratively build and communicate a consistent IT strategy roadmap based on your company’s objectives, so that you can compare transformation scenarios and determine when your business strategy needs to evolve. You can formalize an IT strategy roadmap that can be communicated to and understood by IT and business stakeholders. That ensures your IT strategy roadmap is consistent with your business strategy.

Map your IT landscape to facilitate transformation

MEGA solutions give you the tools to document, map, and transform your IT systems, including applications, data flows, and infrastructure. You can build a detailed inventory of your IT portfolio and model information flows, application deployments, and costs.

Our solutions use a collaborative approach and a common repository that ensure accurate, shared information on IT assets. They also enable you to generate reports showing how the IT landscape measures up against optimization criteria such as business criticality, costs, risks, architecture standards, and technology obsolescence. Reports and decision-ready deliverables can be easily communicated to all stakeholders, including business line managers.

Build, assess, and compare different IT roadmap scenarios

With MEGA solutions, you can create visual roadmaps to ensure that requirements are communicated to and understood by IT and business stakeholders.

IT roadmaps are tied to a set of transformation initiatives that can be assessed through standard or custom criteria, such as feasibility and quality risk.  You can then compare several different IT roadmap scenarios and select the best one.

By building and communicating visual IT roadmaps, and by assessing and implementing IT roadmap scenarios, you can greatly improve alignment with your business and provide greater visibility on IT objectives and how IT assets are critical to your operations.

Implement a strategy to streamline your IT landscape

Our solutions use built-in and custom reports as well as dashboards to improve decision-making about upgrades to your IT portfolio. The reports are based on assessments of the current and future state of your IT portfolio, including as-is and to-be gap analyses.

Our solutions can also be used to measure how IT transformation scenarios impact your business. They can help you simplify your IT landscape, lower IT costs, and tailor IT assets to meet digital business challenges.

Because your IT strategy roadmap is closely tied to your business roadmap, our solutions help you build enterprise transformation roadmaps based on business needs, available resources, and planned investments, and align them with your corporate strategy.

With an IT strategy roadmap in place, your company will enjoy more robust enterprise governance and, by extension, a smoother enterprise transformation process, positioning you to seize new business opportunities.
