A harmony between business & IT as a competitive factor
According to the origin of the word, harmony describes the unification of the opposite into a whole.
After many centuries of language development, it contemporarily means agreement, synchronization, or concord. But what does this have to do with digitalization?
We understand digitization as the creation of harmony between business and IT. Both areas are inseparably interwoven and form the central DNA strang of digitization along the corporate architecture levels – the BIT DNA.
Achieving BIT harmony is the goal and which for us means shaping business and IT together with our clients. Processes/ capabilities and applications fit together. Information and data are available at the right time, in the right place and in the right quality. The underlying technology is implemented. The structures promote progress. The employees are on the road with us.
We understand the challenges and shape digitization
Organizations are being asked to rethink IT and business. Companies therefore want and should
- pursue measurable goals for the efficient networking of the business units.
- break up deadlocked and process-oriented thinking patterns.
- establish a standardized exchange of information.
- bring more transparency into the organization to know the business needs and requirements for IT and initiate changes in a targeted manner.
- deploy a specific system across multiple locations.
- establish clear processes and structures to control your digitization offensive.
We look at digitization in its entirety along the enterprise Architecture.
