Solution Design is translating digital strategy into business requirements and technology solutions and implementing those solutions at scale. It is the Achilles’ heel of digitisation, many such efforts cost too much, take too long, and disappoint in their business impact. We help clients make the right up-front technology choices for the chosen strategy and then deliver bold and agile execution.
We help leading companies and public sector agencies deliver high-impact digital strategies at scale, speed, and the lowest attainable cost. Our work covers the full technology stack, from selecting the right applications and tools, to advising on next-generation IT infrastructures, to creating custom web and mobile apps through rapid prototyping methods.
Five elements distinguish our Solution Design approach:
1. Strategy-to-business needs technical capability
Our combination of industry expertise with technical depth allows us to match digital strategies to business requirements, to the technologies required and to deliver strategic objectives.
2. Technology choice and supplier selection
Our Business Technology practitioners have the technical capability to help clients make the right technical choices and the right target data architecture, the right applications and tools, the right infrastructure environment. In addition, we support clients as they select suppliers, whether it's choosing the right ERP solution, the right SaaS tools, the right Application Development or infrastructure partners.
We have no vested interest in particular solutions. This frees us to conduct objective, comprehensive evaluations of the available options and help to select and manage technologies and vendors without fear or favour. Our thinking is strategic, and our bias in favour of what is practical and what works.
4. Prototyping apps | making technology impact a tangible reality
Our Digital Innovations Global team of subject matter experts have deep experience in Application user interaction, visual and information design, data visualisation, and software development. This capability allows us to rapidly create prototypes, apps and smart integration layers to accelerate product delivery and business value. All our software projects use iterative approaches and resources across time zones for overnight turnaround. This helps our clients touch and feel how using the technologies will create impact.
5. Program delivery and value assurance
We have a proven record over 20 years of helping clients deliver complex technology-driven programs on time and within budget. Our proprietary Value Assurance methodology has been applied at both public and private sector clients across a range of industries. Our approach combines a broad and coherent view of an IT project, a focus on business value, and an emphasis on building capabilities within client teams to ensure sustainability.
