Technology is one of the pivotal variables for the success of any organisation. If properly utilised and integrated into business processes, it can be a source of sustainable competitive advantage (Barney, 1991). Conversely, when technology is misaligned with the company's processes, rigidities can be generated that can undermine the very survival of the company.
Considi has been accompanying its customers in the selection, identification and implementation of the right IT tools since the 1980s, ensuring alignment between selected products and business processes.
In recent years, we have developed an in-depth knowledge of the major players in the IT tools market, both from the point of view of tools, management or verticals, and from the point of view of providers.
The definition of the Systems Plan and the software selection are the first phase of the overall information system change project. The objective of this project phase is to define the systems plan and make the selection of the main application solutions in the sector (shortlist).
In particular, we aim at:
In the next phase, the implementation plan for the new information system is drawn up, which defines the sequence of the various modules, the data to be migrated, the commitment of resources, the organisation of the project, and the time and cost of implementation.
In the age of Digital Transformation, the main risk is to interpret this fourth industrial revolution only with the ability to digitise, robotise and automate companies, reducing everything to investments in technology. However, the mere adoption of technology can introduce elements of complexity and variability into processes that make them more difficult to manage and control.
Considi's approach towards in-depth knowledge of business process management leads it to be a qualified partner in the company's Digital Transformation, always striving to make processes stable, reliable and robust in order to implement and make the most of the introduction of new technologies. Processes must be “ready” to effectively accommodate technological innovations. This will avoid focusing only on the purchase of technology, and will create the preconditions for designing a transformation path where strategic innovation organically embraces not only processes, but also strategy and products (goods and/or services).
