Business IT Consulting
ELCA Business IT Consulting supports business leaders by taking advantage of the best in technology. Our 40 business consultants aggregate the knowledge of 500 Swiss IT experts to design a 360° vision of your digital transformation.
In our digital world, IT has evolved from a cost factor to a business enabler. The strategic challenge is to align ambition, awareness, business readiness and IT stakeholders.
"Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat."– Sun Tsu, Chinese strategist, around 500 BC. Translated into modern times, this means today’s complex organizations need appropriate strategies to achieve ambitious goals, and need to focus their resources to avoid confusion in the face of a range of options and tactical steps.
With the rising role of "digital transformation", business strategy and IT strategy are becoming increasingly connected. Our BC IT strategy services help our clients to align their IT and business strategies and select the appropriate tactical steps in the right order, via operational processes and customer experience optimized with innovative and state-of-the-art solutions.
Our customers are then able to leverage the advantages of:
- State-of-the-art business solutions (such as ECM, BPM, etc.).
- Technologies that drive innovation ("SMAC").
- Digital capabilities that are crucial for digital transformation (e.g., IT governance, EA and UX).
Our IT Strategy Services cover:
- IT Strategy.
- Enterprise Architecture.
- Security Strategy.
The high quality of our services is the result of our consultants’ extensive experience, ELCA’s broad competencies in individual software development and integration, and our pragmatic and well-proven methodologies, such as our consulting methodology ENVISION and industry standards including COBIT5 and TOGAF.
Digital transformations are changing our society, our way of working and the enterprise environment. All organizations have to adapt to this new environment, defend their market position and transition to a new digital operating model.
Just as crucial as a construction plan when building a house – the same is true for a properly functioning and stable IT environment. Enterprise Architecture serves as the groundwork on which the IT-landscape can be built.
We leverage lean thinking and value stream mapping to drive business process improvements by the actual value delivered to your customers.
Stable and agile – the balancing act between two seemingly contrary requirements only succeeds when IT management actively supports the necessary development steps.
