Due to the diversity of our highly valued clients, we offer tailored engagements to meet their needs and yield the most business value. Acting as a foundation builder for our portfolio of services, our Value Assessment service can be applied to organisations of any size and scale and within any industry context. As a prerequisite service, it allows us to align and customise one or a combination of our related services.
In full consultation with our clients, we lend an experienced and objective perspective which is respectful of their organisational dynamics and constraints, to ensure the service delivers the following outcomes:
- A high level narrative of observations and findings of the efficacy of their Enterprise Architecture;
- Identification of opportunities to derive the greatest value from an effective Enterprise Architecture for their specific organisational context;
- Strengthen the quality of our estimates to give planning certainty and firm, not to exceed pricing for future engagements.
Consequently, this service not only provides us with valuable insight into our clients’ issues and opportunities but they develop a greater understanding of the maturity and efficiency of their EA practice and how well their technology is serving business needs. And, due to the outcomes provided, our clients derive tangible business value from the service whether subsequent services are acquired or not.
