An exhaustive audit of a client’s current IT, infrastructure, and operational systems to determine gaps and needs in meeting growth or unexpected change.
Many of Icreon’s clients rose quickly to the tops of their industries bolting on new technology systems as their business and needs grew. But at a certain point, ad hoc technology systems can make long-term growth difficult to sustain. The Technology Readiness Index is a client’s first step toward their Digital Business Transformation. And its aim is to assess, score, and provide a forward-looking view of the following:
CAPABILITY - Measuring the gaps between the current digital business organization, technology, and IT systems against what’s needed for the future
CAPACITY - Assessing the causes of previous technology implementation issues, shortcomings, and failures
COST - Scenario planning to map multiple options to gain efficiencies and total technology cost savings
Developing and documenting the business requirements needed to deliver the technology for your business is the foundation for future success. This applied research puts technology to work against your business strategy.
With basic assumptions and business requirements documented, light development on the technology can begin to validate applied research.
The first step of true validation is the Conceptual Prototype in the hands of users and customers. This MVP prototype delivers on the core functionality of the technology that solves the business problem.
Using the outcomes of the Conceptual Prototype feedback and testing, we help deliver a component-based approach to begin to expand on the technology with more mobility.
The Developmental Prototype explores the technical feasibility of a capability and its operational value. The prototype is tested in a relevant environment with the right stakeholders.
Using the learnings from the Developmental Prototype, we help build and deliver the systems that make the technology fully operational and scalable.
The Operational Prototype delivers on the technical and operational value expected against the business strategy. Once complete, the prototype is delivered in an operational environment.
We develop an Application Lifecycle Management process to ensure we have a plan for technology maturity, evolution and sunsetting if needed.
