Strategy and advisory

Many organisations are unprepared for their digital future. The disruptive power of changing digital technologies means that traditional models of IT service delivery are no longer responsive or flexible enough to meet the fast-moving demands of digital business.

In this environment, strategic planning is essential.  Your projects must be designed, developed, managed and delivered appropriately.

Strategy development

We have experience developing strategies that identify key business opportunities arising from digitalisation. Our pragmatic approach helps you navigate the technology and business implications of digital disruption with an actionable roadmap of initiatives that deliver lasting benefits.

This is a unique journey for each organisation and involves more than the implementation of new technology. Our approach to the development of digital strategies includes:

Industry Vision – evaluation of the impact and extent of digitisation and digital disruption in an organisation’s industry and the opportunities and challenges this presents.
Ambition – collaboration with internal stakeholders and employees, to build awareness and assess how ready a business is to go on the digital journey, and architecting a digital platform.
Design – specification of the information, systems and technology required to transition to a digital organisation, drawing on the expertise of Seisma’s enterprise architecture services.
Delivery – planning and delivery of each phase of the digital journey in an agile and customer-centric fashion.
Scale – identification of strategies to expand the rollout of delivered solutions across an entire business.
Refinement – review and planning for subsequent phases of the digital journey.

Capability improvement and benefits management

We use a range of capability assessments to determine if existing systems and technologies meet your current and future business needs, including reviewing your IT function to determine areas for improvement relating to skills and capabilities.

Benefits management takes a disciplined, structured approach to ensuring that the desired business outcomes articulated in a business case are realised. Seisma establishes a disciplined, structured approach for identifying, planning, measuring and tracking benefits throughout the full lifecycle of a project or program. We ensure that through effective management, the benefits of your investment are successfully realised.

Fit-for-purpose governance and procurement

 IT services must be based on a flexible combination of internal, external and Cloud-based sources.  We assist you with the development of agile governance processes that improve the overall effectiveness of IT investment decision making, procurement and monitoring.  

Seisma has extensive sourcing and procurement experience, including the development of sourcing strategies and procurement plans, and the management of procurement and evaluation processes. Our team can develop and implement overarching sourcing frameworks and fit for purpose governance structures.
