IT Strategy and Execution Plan to Align Initiatives to Corporate Objectives of Digital Transformation and Spend Optimization from ‘Run’ to ‘Growth’
The IT organization of a global insurance leader needed to align with the corporate-wide transformation. Trianz was engaged to collaborate in defining and articulating the client’s 3-year strategy to enable business growth while servicing technology debt and upgrading the existing team skills.
The client had a decentralized organization, which became expensive and slow to react to change. We identified the core principles needed to drive the articulation of IT’s vision and specific action plans along with detailed financial models and organization changes.
Identified outside influences through our research capabilities to define the impact of digital transformation
Worked with the IT leaders to position this within the context of their current IT architecture, business needs and organization capabilities
Articulated the strategy to business leaders, IT leaders and IT teams
Alignment of IT teams across organization with a clear call to action
