Business Technology Governance

Ensure business value delivery through ecosystem management.

 

Ensure business value realisation through ecosystem management

Digitalisation has transformed the business value creation where development of new products creates complex ecosystems - Supplier networks build around a specific service, technology or system. Understanding of those ecosystems (internal and external) as well as the capability to manage and develop them further is a prerequisite for optimal business value creation and digital business transformation.

BEST PRACTICES AND MARKET INSIGHTS

In order to maximise the business value delivery of the ecosystem, one has to understand the entire business value chain and ensure innovation enablement within it. This requires the organisation to have:

  1. capable management with proper management principles and processes
  2. proper planning and control of information and business technology services and their costs
  3. fast execution and flexible fit-to-purpose sourcing
  4. competent project and service management with the right people, processes and tools.
