Providing the end-to-end roadmap
We at Coalitions help our clients realize their digital strategy. To do so, we make use of the extensive and diverse Cronos network.
The client’s request
A worldwide player in the chemical industry is already a Cronos customer for over 10 years. We are involved in a large variety of different IT-related areas:
- Network architecture
- Datacenter architecture
- Modern workplace
- ERP (SAP)
- OT / IoT
- Hardware & maintenance contracts
The solutions and the accompanying consultancy services for these different domains are delivered by experts coming from various competence centers within the Cronos Groep.
In the context of their long-term IT strategy, the client has asked Cronos to develop a robust, end-to-end roadmap for the next 3 years, encompassing all aspects of the current concepts, technologies, and services.
- Align all aspects to the overall business requirements and strategy.
- Reflect all possible (inter-)dependencies in an integrated plan, to mitigate risks and to improve quality.
- Clarify the budgetary impact of the program.
One of the architects of the Coalitions Team is involved in a four-step approach as to getting better insight in the ‘as-is’ and ‘to-be’, to develop the roadmap based on the captured information.
The end product
The final deliverable of this study is a presentation with an overview of the plan: all program building blocks, approach, timeline and budget estimation.
Obviously, the establishment of such a long-term, future-proof, strategic program, encompassing all different aspects of the ICT environment of a global company, requires thorough reflection and interaction with the customer and all Cronos competence centers involved. That is exactly the overarching role that Coalitions wants to play: making sure that the customer will get an end-to-end roadmap, well-aligned to his business requirements and strategic objectives.
