MANAGED SERVICES

We provide maintenance, support and end-of-life services. We also go beyond traditional support and managed services to help you achieve better business alignment, increase transparency, gain productivity, improve outcomes and react quickly to changing dynamics. Legacy system life can often be extended through performance enhancements that require no new technology. We also diagnose and fix problems caused by bottlenecks and out-of-control database growth.

CHANGE MANAGEMENT

Most change initiatives fall short of achieving the required adoption because they fail to take all the risks and challenges into account. We prevent this by looking at change from every angle and focusing on the people side of change. We help manage expectations, build a strategy for change, raise awareness, create and deliver communications and training programs, entice participation, increase skill and confidence, and ultimately, drive maximum user adoption.

ANALYTICS

Analytics leverage data across applications, data lakes and data warehouses to drive supply chain visibility, predictability and control. We can tap into internal and external data sources to arm a wide range of users with deep, actionable insights – and help you ensure informed, data-driven decision-making throughout the enterprise.
