Information Diagnosis and Architecture
Often the first thing we do is to discuss the current landscape and offer an immediate strategy for improving information usage within key areas or across your organisation. In as little as 5-10 days, we can work with you to define both your current information understanding and your aspirations for the future.
We can help you by understanding and documenting your "As Is" information architecture and all the organisational constraints and priorities that impinge upon it. From this point, we will build a roadmap to an improved information architecture with all necessary recommendations for appropriate investment, technology options, timelines and likely costs.
We are also able to help you launch key early initiatives, which lead to highly visible wins and further executive engagement.
Oracle Cloud Architecture
Business Analytics Advice and Design
Organisations considering or who have purchased Oracle Cloud Applications need solid advice from within to help them manage both Oracle and their implementation partner. Instrategy can supply these skills as part of your project governance team and make sure you get the best solution for your business at the right cost.
We will support your analytics and integration strategy and provide tools to help manage configuration, data migration and audit compliance
Organisations often understand the need for clear business and IT architecture, but often initiatives fail, because too long is spent thinking about the problems and nothing actually changes. Instrategy can help make rapid progress and deliver quick wins to help engage the executive.
There is so much marketing information about business analytics and insights. We help organisations to understand what the terms mean in their context, how they can be applied, what technologies are available, and how to tie each of the concepts in with the core information architecture.
Instrategy can fit the service around your requirement.
Oracle LIcence Optimisation– Many organisations struggle to document and manage their license estate with the big IT vendors often leading to huge licensing over-payments.
Business Intelligence and Analytics Implementation – With a prioritised approach and the most appropriate software tools, we can help you deliver BI value in weeks.
Adoption – You may have modern IT applications, but adoption has been weak. We will work with you to identify the areas of concern and build a plan to aid better adoption by all kinds of end users, from executives to shop floor workers.
ConfigSnapshot for Oracle Applications – Managing the configuration of Oracle Applications is complex, time-consuming and carries many risks. ConfigSnapshot helps you manage your environments affordably and can be built into your IT processes, including design, testing, support, patch and release management. I can help with implementing the software and embedding it into your processes.
Segregation of Duties – ConfigSnapshot helps you manage your E-Business Suite environments but also helps with business functions such as Segregation of Duties. Working with an external consultant knowledgeable both in the need and the tools available can help organisations implement this key ability.
ERP Strategy – ERP is not just for manufacturing. Blending applications for the key business functions such as Finance, HR, Projects, Assets and CRM can help deliver significant efficiencies, but at what cost. We can work with you to determine the possibilities, costs and impacts and offer alternative approaches where practical.
Vendor Strategy and Management – We can help you understand the IT landscape, with our supplier-side experience. We can tell you the pros and cons of current and new suppliers and help you consolidate, drive and manage them to best effect.
Onsite, Outsourced, Hosted, Cloud and SAAS/PAAS - What are the real differences, how can they be blended effectively, what are the considerations and options, how do they help manage risk and cash?
