Existing Systems Evaluation and Risk Analysis
Many companies make investments in information systems but do not receive the promised benefits. A recent Conference Board survey revealed that 40% of the respondents failed to achieve their business goals for IT system implementation. Quite often, companies do not need new systems–they need to make better use of the systems they already have, whether they be ERP systems, CRM, SCM, or legacy systems needing modernization. To address this need, our consultants can deliver a rapid and cost-effective assessment to help you receive more value from your existing systems. We perform a thorough information system assessment, identify constraints, formulate recommendations, and assemble an action plan for full realization of benefits.
What application systems are installed, and what shape are they in? Are they suitable for a company of this size, in this industry? If they are packaged systems, how well are they supported by existing staff or vendors? Are users satisfied?
What system development projects are underway? What is the status? Should they continue? What should be done to ensure successful implementation?
Based on our assessment of the current systems, we can identify corrective actions needed to fix current problems and outline future scenarios and alternatives to consider. Future scenarios could include expanding, upgrading, or replacing certain systems, integrating IT operations, outsourcing some or all of the IT function, or adopting a new architecture.
