Here are just a few of the ways Trisotech’s customers are utilizing the Digital Enterprise Suite to improve their organizations.
There is a revolution going on; a digital revolution. It is fueled by changing customer behaviors, rapid technology adoption and relentless and increasing competition. It is a paradigm shift no organization can escape. As new technologies and new business models are introduced, many will fail. It is a do or die situation for enterprises all over the world. Every successful company is becoming a digital company. So how can you master the digital transformation of your organizations?
A digital business is characterized by the fact that information technology affects all aspects of the business model. Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES) offers highly visual and interactive software tools that help organizations innovate, transform and improve the way they do business. We bring strategies, design and technology together to provide business insight in the digital enterprise age.
The intersection of customer power and rapidly advancing enabling technologies is fostering a time of unprecedented opportunity and risk for organizations. Failing to anticipate and to identify these challenges and opportunities can be disastrous for an organization. Moving to address them strategically can involve difficult change, both inside and outside the company.
Strategic planning helps avoid stalls and gets you off a plateau. Today, organizations need to define their digital strategy. If not, they will be left behind. A digital strategy translates your corporate strategy into the desired digital experience for clients, employees and partners. Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES) brings strategies, design and technology together to provide business insight in the digital enterprise age. Trisotech’s DES offers highly visual and interactive software tools that help organizations set goals and define responsibilities and initiatives that can achieve or maintain desired business outcomes.
Implementing an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system can lead to great gains as it integrates information from across the organization providing rapid access to client and supplier information. But a poorly executed ERP implementation can also be the source of some serious concerns that could even cripple the organization for a while. ERP implementations have a bad reputation of often being late, over budget and too often cementing the old way of doing business.
Whether it be for a first deployment or migrating to a cloud deployment, the implementation of an ERP is a major endeavor that requires transition planning in the form of an ERP blueprint. Using the discovery and modeling capabilities of the Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES) your organization can improve the current “As Is” business practices before starting the ERP implementation. These “To Be” improvements will pave the way to an optimized business blueprint for implementing your ERP.
Many organizations embark on application cloud migrations to achieve scalability, cost-efficiency and higher performance. Generally speaking, application migration can be complicated because not only are there bound to be differences between the original and target environments, but the way the organization does business may have changed or applications may need improvement since the originals were deployed.
To successfully migrate applications to the cloud, organizations need to carefully prepare a migration strategy that addresses potential people, process and technology issues. Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES) can help you discover “who, what, when, where, why and how” things really get done. This information combined with capability-based analysis can provide a migration plan that drastically reduces the risks associated with application migration.
Merging two companies is at best an arduous endeavor that when done properly can lead to prosperous growth. But mergers can and often do go wrong for a myriad of reasons. Cultural challenges during the integration process are inevitable. So how do you ensure a synergistic acquisition where the resulting merged operation is more innovative, cost effective and significantly more profitable?
Successful integration combines, replaces, and transforms diverse processes, systems and organizational structures. Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES) can help inventory and structure diverse elements of both organizations and provides multiple ways of viewing the organizational components from the organizational goals down through tangible artifacts, systems, and processes.
The greatest impact of employee turnover is lost knowledge, not lost profitability. Lost knowledge is a concern for every organization. How do you stop knowledge from walking out the door? Combine this with the fact that most organization do not have a clear understanding on how things really get done and sustained successful growth can be jeopardized. Well, if you don’t know where you are, how can you plan where you are going?
Discover implicit knowledge and turn it into explicit knowledge. Discover and document in formal detail your organisation’s true operations. Using highly visual models, Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES) enables comprehensive documentation of your operations by capturing the processes, cases and decisions that make up the DNA of your organization.
Although recognised as the central nervous system of any enterprise, business processes still do not get the required attention from most organizations. Poor business processes lead to unmet customer expectations, leading to lost revenues and a deteriorating bottom line. Every organization has processes that range from efficient to inefficient, and from effective to ineffective. How do you ensure that yours are not neither ineffective nor inefficient?
Collaboration has intrinsic value for process improvement. If done correctly, collaboration combined with process improvement is one of the best ways to break down silos of your organization and put you on the road toward efficient and effective business processes. By combining collaboration and sharing capabilities with process discovery and modeling capabilities, Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES) will ensure success of your organization’s continuous process improvement program.
There are consequences to any decision but the consequences of poorly made business decisions can be disastrous to an organization. Poor or inconsistent decision making can lead to lost revenues and missed opportunities. It can affect your organization’s effectiveness and customer relationships, not to mention open the door to potential litigation. Whether the decisions are strategic or operational, your organization cannot survive recurring poorly made decisions.
Effective decision management starts with identifying decision requirements in terms of knowledge sources and then specifying decision logic that is important to your organization. With Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES) you can continuously improve the consistency and quality of decisions being made by your organization through modeling, managing and monitoring your business decisions.
As organizations rapidly grow within a global economy, complying with an ever more demanding regulatory, political, and technical environment becomes a pressing issue. At any time, situations may arise that adversely affect the achievement or maintenance of the organization’s business objectives. Insufficient, incomplete and inaccurate information can lead to disastrous business decision making for the organization.
Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) are the pillars upon which healthy organizations are built. Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES) can help organizations survive and prosper in the most demanding environments by enabling consistent and standardized operations. People, processes and technology can be effectively and efficiently aligned using capabilities provided by DES such as strategy mapping and analysis, responsibility assignment and analysis, discovery and modeling of processes and robust decision management.
Although bridging the gap between business and IT has been a topic for many years, the problem persists today. In a digital transformation era where business model innovation, new forms of customer engagement, and operational excellence are a must, the disconnect between business executives and IT is proving to be even more catastrophic than before. As information technologies become more and more part of every business’ DNA, we must ensure that business leaders and IT work together as one.
To succeed, an open dialogue focussed on outcomes is required. Common goals and common languages must be established. Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES) discovery and modeling capabilities provide a powerful yet easy-to-understand visual notation. Based on international standards, DES helps you create a shared understanding of the organization’s strategies, people, capabilities, processes, decisions and systems. This shared vision, expressed in a commonly understandable language, is the key to bridging the business IT divide.
Globalization and rapid technology innovation results in a constantly evolving business environment. Change is the only constant and it is everywhere. One of the reasons organizational change is so difficult to accomplish is the FUD factor: Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt. Digital transformations and other organizational transitions directly affect the people and teams of the organization instilling this FUD into your most valuable assets.
Organizational changes must be planned and managed. People need to be involved early and the reason for change has to be widely communicated and clearly explained. Success of organizational changes, transformative or transitional, can be promptly and comprehensively planned and communicated using Trisotech’s Digital Enterprise Suite (DES). With Trisotech’s DES you can involve people and teams early and often via advanced social sharing and collaboration capabilities that permeate the suite. The intuitive visualization and traceability capabilities of DES provide a simple and clear understanding of what changes need to be made and how those changes will be managed.
