The overall vision is a prerequisite for the development of a viable corporate strategy.
We approach it from strategic, economic, financial and Information Systems perspectives. Four axes of governance that all head management must be able to align in order to succeed.
Strategic, economic and financial governance
Looking your business issues and the interplay of the different parameters with a bird view will help you understand how you can improve things. This way of considering what underlies your activity, and influencing it, leads to informed judgement and reasonable and realistic decisions.
The overall vision is a ground condition for the development of a viable corporate strategy. For any entrepreneur who is aware of the implications of re-evaluating goals, it is essential to ask the question: If I were to start my business again in the current environment, how would I go about it?
Our contribution is the addition of a vision in perspective of economic consequences identical to those related to Covid-19.
How to envisage a crisis management strategy? Integrate this parameter into your thinking to limit the risks and, if your situation allows it, turn them into opportunities.
Finance and economy
In order to have a healthy view of the company’s finances we analyze the fundamentals and the 80/20 for a more complete view of the company.
Following this, we help our clients to set up a dashboard that accurately analyses the profitability of each marketing, commercial or production action.
An advanced economic and financial analysis also helps to discover new markets, to develop sectors, or to stop unprofitable activities by focusing on “core” activities.
Governance of IS
The Information System is an important brick in the management of a company. As such, it must be managed and steered to reflect the strategy developed by management.
THE STARTING POINT
The information system is an important component in the management of a company. As such, it must be managed and steered to reflect the strategy developed by management.
The starting point for a good governance approach is the ability of an organization to be able to control and adapt its own functioning, as well as to structure its needs according to the maturity of its organization (processes, people, technology).
Its purpose is to assure company managers and shareholders that the IS function is perfectly managed.
Alignment IT - IT Master Plan – ITIL.
Alignment IT with the Business
Aligning your information system with your business strategy is essential to meet customer needs and innovate in the face of ever-increasing competition. This is an asset for the company because the information system becomes part of the value chain and an asset of the company.
Aligning IT with its business and business needs gives the company all the tools it needs to evolve and adapt to market changes.
This alignment allows you to improve your company’s overall risk situation by providing better visibility into IT and business risks.
IT Master Plan
The IT master plan is the set of organizational and technical actions to finalize a transformation strategy or to manage the complexity of the changes necessary for the proper functioning (coordination) of investments in the company.
It serves as a guide for decision-making related to information systems, with IT tasks being prioritized and implemented using the plan as a framework..
The IT master plan allows the company to align the IT strategy with the business strategy, map the IS, build a transformation plan and define the associated roadmap, anticipate the necessary resources and optimize the IT department’s production capacity.
The operational organisation of IT departments is often under pressure and lacks coordination and organisation. To improve IT management in companies, it is important to define a reference framework, guaranteeing good practices for good IT service management.
The ITIL guidelines and best practices aim to adapt IT actions and budget to business needs and to modify them as the company grows or changes direction.
BUSINESS PROCESS DEFINITION
The use of digital in companies must support the environment already in place. This is why it is strongly recommended to formalize in a rigorous way the internal functioning of the company in order to facilitate the organizational transition supported by an efficient information system.
Mapping your company’s processes allows you to represent the overall functioning of your company through graphs and diagrams via linked processes. This process modeling provides you with a global framework. This mapping improves your business processes and increases your efficiency.
IT security is a major challenge for a company/organization. A security policy sets out all the methods of using the information system. This means the access and use of information, its dissemination or sharing, as well as its nature (confidential or not) and the way it is safeguarded.
It defines the risks inherent in the system, its physical, protection and incident prevention constraints. This policy sets out the regular and iterative technical check points that validate the operation and ensure business continuity. It affects both people and systems by defining rules both on the role of employees and in the physical supervision of the system.
the IT Charter
This document shows the company’s desire to ensure the proper organization of its computer system, by determining its uses and protecting it from possible misuse.
The purpose of this IT charter is to formalize the security obligations relating to the use of the information system. The charter describes the behaviour that everyone must adopt and includes, in the interest of all, the main provisions that each user must respect. .
