A WELL THOUGHT-OUT STRATEGY PROVIDES CLEAR ANSWERS TO FUTURE QUESTIONS AND THUS HELPS TO SIGNIFICANTLY SHORTEN DECISIONMAKING PROCESSES.
A central area of KuppingerCole Analysts Advisory Services is support in defining corporate strategies. Strategies include the anticipation of future decisions, because a clear and well-thought-out strategy provides answers to future questions and thus helps to significantly shorten decision-making processes. This is particularly evident in the development of strategies that define business processes and their representation in systems and architectures.
Strategies define the use of resources, i.e. to achieve the best result with limited resources with a view to defined goals and recognized constraints.
Depending on requirements, scope and focus, the form and extent of the results to be achieved by KuppingerCole Analysts „Strategy Support“ Advisory Services can vary. Typical results are a (partial) IT strategy, including the draft definition of an implementation program and model projects. In other cases, such results represent the decision template or the management level communication for a company‘s personnel, budget and investment planning.
KuppingerCole Analysts has successfully supported many companies (including several DAX 50 companies) in the development of strategies and their program implementation.
