Making the right connections, building digital capabilities, turning vision into reality
Successful companies must make tough choices about how to use technology and where to focus their IT investments. With so many options in cloud computing, cybersecurity, specialised software, and other operational services, as well as emerging technologies like machine learning, blockchain, and drones, a winning strategy based on differentiating capabilities is essential to create and sustain long-term value.
At Strategy&, we partner with our clients to integrate and capitalize on technologies across business units, all while building trust with customers and aligning any transformation with organisational culture. We help enhance analytic capabilities, increase operational excellence through updated systems and architecture, and improve the delivery of products and services — by bringing bold and pragmatic solutions that solve today’s problems while driving results to deliver in an unknown future. More and more, lasting competitive advantage hinges on having the right technology strategy in place to deliver operational excellence, agility, and innovation. And once your strategy is designed, we have the skills and global scale to assist with the design and full implementation.
We build fit-for-purpose operating models anchored in business strategy and enabled by modern technology principles like the cloud and Xaas. We bring solutions that empower high-performing teams to execute agile delivery processes and new sourcing strategies. As a result of changing how they operate, our clients see lower cost “run” organizations and more investment in the enterprise and product technologies that make a real difference to their business.
Companies saddled with technical debt, legacy application architectures, and outmoded infrastructure operations take longer and spend more to produce new business capabilities. We work with clients to strategically design and evolve new enterprise architectures with nimble platforms (e.g., cloud, XaaS, and micro-automation) that are more powerful, easier to enhance, and less expensive to maintain.
Making the right digital investments can be hard. But by setting clear outcomes and specific performance metrics, we provide strategic advice, as well as testing and controls, from the design phase onward, to help digital rollouts stay on or get ahead of plan and budget. We help our clients align all digital solutions with business goals, and we carefully manage change among employees.
Smart scaling often depends on changing the way teams operate, diverting resources away from low value activities to refocus them on high value investments. We help our clients get leaner, stronger, and ready for growth — by focusing on technology that drives strategic advantage. We leverage modern management techniques such as robotic process automation and next-generation sourcing strategies, driving continuously improving digital and IT operating models.
At Strategy&, we advise our clients on how to manage and leverage their vast amounts of data as a competitive advantage and strategically use analytics to guide organizational decision-making. We can also bring the skills, experience, and global scale to deliver strategies related to advanced capabilities such as big data, predictive modelling and machine learning.
