Market situation in IT Organiation and Sourcing

 

Building modern IT organisations requires fundamental paradigm shifts. It is often necessary to break down dependencies, break up old structures and introduce new collaboration models. However, the use of modern IT paradigms such as the operation of a cloud-native application landscape requires precisely this paradigm shift in the IT organisation. The accompanying necessary adaptation of the IT organisation often confronts those responsible with a conflict of interest that can often be resolved through the use of modern technologies.
In the context of IT sourcing, access to state-of-the-art technologies and solutions must be ensured. Often, simultaneous and partly conflicting secondary conditions such as high speed, assurance of service delivery as well as cost optimisation have to be met. This requires a fundamental change in sourcing strategy, execution approach and required capabilities. A structured IT sourcing process can help to identify and realise cost reduction potentials.

 

How we approach challenges

 

Together with our clients, we develop individual solution models to align the IT organisation for current and future challenges. The focus here is on reducing dependencies and establishing teams that act as autonomously as possible. The procedure is always oriented towards the maturity level of our clients, the goals and individual needs for organisational development and the establishment of a sustainable target operating model. Furthermore, the successive transfer of knowledge and the sustainable empowerment of the organisation by our experts are fixed components of our service promise.
Together with our clients, we develop the IT sourcing strategy to achieve short-term as well as long-term and sustainable goals. This includes the identification of required technologies and digital competencies as well as the appropriate way of sourcing. The optimal supplier strategy for strategic, digital projects and critical technologies form the cornerstone of the further procedure. The sourcing process is adapted to the needs of our clients through agile methods such as SaaS, managed services, application management, agile IT product development or customising of standard software and the selection of suitable delivery models (on-shore, near-shore, off-shore). Through close exchange with innovation drivers and start-ups within the framework of our ProcTech Radar, the latest technologies and methods are applied.
