The starting point for any strategic review is the definition of business objectives and goals.At Progress Pacific we don't just tell you what you need, we work with you to develop the most effective strategy for maximising you investment and returns
The starting point for any strategic review is the definition of business objectives and goals. These business objectives and goals are necessary when the enterprise attempts to gain leverage from any previously implemented solution. The solutions in this sense should be the enabler of the objectives and goals and be cognisant of:
• THE BUSINESS PROCESSES – “what to do”
• THE I.T. – “what to use”
• THE PEOPLE – “who has to do it”
• THE ORGANIZATION – “when to do and how to proceed”
Every company is in a unique situation and needs a suitable, customized approach for defining their I.T strategy. There are many factors that could impact an approach such as:
• Corporate culture e.g. top-down or bottom-up decision making processes
• Past experiences with SAP implementations
• Key studies and evaluations, past or present
• Objectives for undertaking a corporate solution strategy review
• Availability of supporting methodologies and tools
• General readiness for taking on the Solution Strategy effort
• Strategy offerings include:
• SAP™ deployment
• Program development & assessment
• Continuous Business Improvement (CBI)
• Business Case development (Fit for purpose, feasibility, discovery & evaluation)
• Strategy Q&A
• Solution Management
• Change management
• Technical services
In the ever increasing competitive market and as the speed of technology changes, SAP customers need to be able to measure their implemented systems continually to ensure they are staying at the cutting edge of technology and optimise the usage of their SAP investment. With increasing complexity in business processes, the conventional method of documenting business processes has proven to be totally inadequate. This causes large investment needs during the SAP lifecycle when there is for example, a need to retrain users, roll out new functionality, upgrade, roll out to additional site or improve functionality.
There are also many “softer” issues such as knowledge transfer, losing knowledge due to changes in the user environment, leveraging maximum benefit from the SAP investment. There is thus a great need to be able to manage these processes at minimum cost. It takes a large investment to analyze current business processes only with the disadvantage that by the time it is documented, it is already out of date. Since 2000, Progress Pacific has partnered with IntelliCorp, harnessing their tools to provide Business Process Management Services to our clients. This, combined with our extensive SAP experience, allows us to offer the following:
