Client: Global Tech Company (Identity & Security)
Sponsor: Chief Digital Officer (CDO)
This global technology provider not only had the intent to pivot its business to a platform model and needed help to understand how to get there. But they had organically grown through M&A and had siloed global technology capabilities, processes, functions, and amassed technical debt that would preclude the needed pivot. The client needed an independent assessment of its business and technology landscape, an architectural plan to steer its pivot, and pragmatic recommendations on how to make the turn.
A rapid business, product, and technology landscape assessment, lead to gap identification and pragmatic, sustainable recommendations. We bootstrapped a global architecture organization, developing business and technology reference architectures, design patterns, domain models, multi-year roadmaps, restructuring plans, and process models to support the business’ pivot and to shore up their foundation.
