IT Strategy & Transformation

Peridot Solutions supports clients in conducting a thorough evaluation of their entire IT organization, investments, process maturity and staffing to develop an IT strategy that aligns with their business strategy. Read More...

We provide management support services in developing focused solutions to substantiate the required investments—helping them assess and evaluate their options, design the overall solution, plan implementation and mobilize for execution. We do this by:

  1. Structuring IT initiatives that drive improved efficiency and effectiveness. This approach requires IT executives to engage their firms in a dialogue about how and where IT drives their business.
  2. Reducing IT complexity, thereby minimizing risk and challenging IT to “flex” better with the organization rather than act as a fixed and increasing cost base.
  3. Increasing the transparency into IT costs and performance. This allows the business to understand the value of what it is buying and to facilitate proper economic trade-offs between IT and non-IT spending.
  4. Defining the future state roadmaps and an implementation plan to achieve those goals and objectives.

Application Portfolio Analysis & Management

Portfolio Management is a collection of information, metrics, processes and governance that enables significant decision support capabilities about technology investments. In its purest form, it includes the “legacy” as well as the “new development” environments and planned investment environments. Our consultants provide this portfolio analysis and management solution by:

  1. Analyzing IT Applications details, such as technology used, alignment with the business mission and business value.
  2. Comparing with industry best practices, identify gaps and recommend strategies for application consolidation, migration and integration.
  3. Prioritizing investments and balance their resources.
  4. Provide a roadmap for the risk mitigated implementation plan.
