Business Information Planning
IT is the backbone of many business activities and increasingly more and more vital to a business’ overall success. Whereas IT was once seen as a support function, it is now seen and used as a strategic resource. Changes within a business can be both “IT driven”, and/or “business driven”. In the current business climate, the challenge is to effectively liaison between “business goals” and “IT goals” and maintain the relationship with a constant balance and interchange.
TansTech’s Information Planning Framework solves this challenge with an approach based on involvement of all relevant parties, and guarantees broad-based results. These results include: a proper strategy, scenarios for change, an information plan, and a project calendar complete with specific goals and timelines. TansTech’s Information Planning Framework is highly appealing to both business and IT management and provides for highly effective business information planning.
Business Project Portfolio Management
Effective Business Project Portfolio Management (BPPM) requires a quick and effective response on the part of IT to the expressed needs of a business. Businesses are constantly in a state of flux; adding, removing, expanding or decreasing in scope, planning, and postponing projects. IT departments must respond accordingly and in a way which ensures quality and cost effectiveness.
TansTech Consulting can assist your company in making sure that your BPPM is of the highest quality and has the full and most effective support of IT.
Project Portfolio Assessment
One of the hallmarks of TansTech Consulting is its ability to provide a company an independent assessment of the quality and interaction of its current portfolio of projects. At times, projects in a company’s IT portfolio are redundant and/or do not add value – only unnecessary costs. The recommendation, after a thorough assessment by TansTech, might be that certain projects be eliminated completely. Other times, it might be recommended that projects be added, expanded and/or better served by IT to benefit the goals of the business.
Whatever is eventually discovered, and recommended by TansTech Consulting, one of the first essential steps for a business is a thorough assessment of its current portfolio of projects.
