High Performance and Transformation – Technology Economics and Open Innovation for Competitive Advantage.
Firms that want to survive and succeed in an ultracompetitive, increasingly fragmented and regulated environment require business leaders with a dynamic, interdisciplinary and innovative approach to strategic management.
The consultants in our Knowledge Network work within financial markets enabling business transformation and business process reengineering. Applying new business disciplines with a lens on business transformation, we offer access to an efficient, experienced and expert based pool of resource that enables an innovative perspective on the issues involved.
We are working with practitioners who provide the information businesses need to shape investment strategies and adopt technology for competitive advantage. We look at the key issues affecting the development, use and management of technology. For organisations within financial markets, we are interested in technology as an enabler for new business models and how business and investment decisions can be driven by its necessity.
Service-oriented business models are of paramount importance to differentiate from the competition in a rapidly evolving technology landscape and are key to creating valuable and long -term customer relationships. In the wake of the recent financial crisis, many firms are intensifying collaboration to address ongoing regulatory changes whilst transforming their businesses with a clear focus on processes that add more value to their clients
We provide a rich fabric of people, methodologies, processes and technology to work with our clients to maintain a competitive advantage by:
• Identifying new business opportunities- focusing on definition of target business, functional and operational blueprints/technology architectures
• Creating a "performant" environment, by relating compute costs with business initiatives
• Benchmarking business performance and technology strategy against industry peers
• Promoting an Open Innovation culture and leveraging it for profitable growth.
