Big Data. Business Intelligence. Data Analytics. Your organization is drowning in Data. Structured transactional data, semi-structured data, and un-structured data. Your marketing team is clamoring for information to drive client-targeted marketing campaigns. Your sales organization is demanding buyer-specific spending modeling to plan their sales motion. Your IT support group is screaming for predictive data modeling to troubleshoot customer issues before the customer even knows they have a problem. Your executive team has mandated slick, easy-to-digest data analytics reports so they can strategically map the future of the company. Where do you start. With 80% of companies adopting cloud-first strategies, big data will grow to 44 zetta bytes ZB (44 trillion GB) by 2020.
The future is now. If you do not think cloud platforms are a safe option for your organization, think again. If you think transforming your business critical applications from on-premise to cloud is too complicated, and too expensive, think again. But, how do you develop a strategy for true digital transformation. Which applications will translate more easily to a cloud platform. Do you pick AWS or Azure or something else. Public or private. Do you need full stack developers. What is your mobile application strategy. Now is the time to bring in a consulting partner to help.
If you think now is the time to expand your cloud foot print, you are right, and you should think Coppei Partners.
In combination with our Delivery Leadership practitioners, the Coppei Digital Transformation team partners with your team of strategic leaders, technical architects, technology support personnel, and business groups to imagine a custom eco-system for your organization that removes many of the existing on-premise barriers you face today (scalability, increasing support costs, speed to market, limited flexibility, data blind spots) by developing and implementing a cloud forward solution to take advantage of the ever-evolving digital landscape.
As there is no one-size-fits-all model, this approach encompasses maximizing your existing business and technology investments and reducing tech-debt. If you think now is the time to expand your cloud foot print, you are right, and you should think Coppei Partners.
Delivering a successful critical business initiative is a simple matter of following a prescriptive delivery model, right? How hard can it be. You identify your most valuable business subject matter experts (SMEs) and form a super team of high performers to camp in a dedicated conference room and mind-meld their way into an elegant plan to deliver optimal value to your business, regulatory, finance, sales, marketing, and information technology organizations. They might not have a firm handle on industry best practices, or application platform expertise, or ready-to-use tools, but they know your business inside and out and they have a long track record of delivering greater value to the organization relative to their peers.
The question then becomes, “How far can you stretch your dream team of SMEs?” Are they capable of performing their existing job, while also tackling the intense pressure of a high profile business critical initiative. If the answer is no, then a decision must be made to pull them out of their existing high value roles and replace them with personnel that is less qualified to drive business value into the role. Now you are in a position where you have marginalized both an existing business critical function and a business critical initiative by placing your high value resource in an uncomfortable position. A position that has a higher probability of career failure for them than success. A misstep of this nature creates both a subtle and dramatic ripple effect to your organization as a whole. The business critical initiative will suffer delays, cost overruns, and deliver sub-optimal business ROI (the trifecta), and your superstar employees will suffer a crisis of confidence and will often lead to these very organizational stars looking for new opportunities.
Utilizing an external resource is often a great catalyst to bring in new ideas, elevate your internal staff, and question the status quo.
The process of delivering a successful business critical initiative is a very specific discipline that requires targeted expertise to isolate business, statutory, and support requirements, define essential program deliverables, crystalize Key Performance Indicators, develop and deliver data driven and actionable reporting metrics, and lead the core team, extended team, and stakeholders through a complex mine field of business and technical challenges to a successful delivery that is fully supportable.
Utilizing an external resource is often a great catalyst to bring in new ideas, elevate your internal staff, and question the status quo.

Remember back years ago when your company made the largest single business and technology investment in the history of the company. You spent millions of dollars, or tens of millions of dollars, or maybe more. You brought in a brand name multi-national consulting firm as the primary system integrator. In addition, you hired SAP Platinum consultants to QA the architectural plan and double-check the strategy, to ensure you were maximizing the value of your investment. Despite the multi-national consulting firm using their “proprietary delivery methodology” and implementation tools, it took three times longer than promised to implement your SAP platform. Your business user community felt abandoned and lost in the process. Your IT support team un-friended you on social media. Your executives felt like they had been hoodwinked. You haven’t slept well since the day you kicked off the SAP initiative. You lost years off of your life. However, your business is now dependent on SAP and you cannot remember how life worked before you implemented it. The road has been bumpy, but the big picture ROI is real.
