Fragmentation Disrupts Growth and Innovation
Applied Intelligence is about hyper-relevance and enabling enterprises to do things differently and do different things. It’s our approach to embedding AI, automation and analytics at the core of the enterprise to break down silos and create more agile and adaptive processes, enable better decision making, and empower businesses to identify and capture completely new opportunities.
Strategic, Market, Credit, Operational, Reputational
Uncertainty (illustrative examples):
Natural disasters Price collapse Politically-driven Country default Loss of critical systems Reputational event Pandemic event
Flex to support critical in-flight services or deliver new IT projects: Skilled resources – people and infrastructure – are critical for business resilience.
For example, cloud can make companies resilient in the short term by navigating through extreme surges or drops in demand.
Fragmentation Demands Strategic and Operational Realignment
Secure your customers, people and systems wherever they are: In a global crisis, resilient systems must be ready to counter the bad actors who will inevitably seek to take advantage
While moving quickly to enable the remote workforce, it is very important to address the right security protocols and solutions to mitigate risk.
Quickly resolve critical systems availability & performance issues:
Architecture and performance engineering can help improve systems resilience by rapidly scaling applications and resolving performance constraints. When critical systems are under stress, it causes of degradation and execute a “get well” plan to remediate as fast as possible without causing new issues.
Fragmentation can Generate Multiple Operational Challenges
Shift fixed-cost base to variable – aligns with efforts to simplify processes and systems, standardize products and enable ‘IT-as-a-Service’ [save ~ 20% or more and free-up cash].
Optimize asset positions to enable a faster shift to new business models, by making bold and timely changes (often at the balance-sheet level).
The failure to convert the possibilities created by new technologies into activities in the real-world results (e.g., profits, cash flow) is ‘Trapped Value’.
Enterprise Trapped Value exists when an economic opportunity is visible, yet currently unreachable (i.e., it cannot be unlocked by existing business models and capabilities).
