Business & IT Architecture
Businesses need to position themselves for the future. They need to be able to meet business and technology challenges; but most importantly they need to be in a dynamic position so that they can reinvent their strategic direction if and when required, but also their technology platform must be robust, scalable and business aligned. We outline a well-designed and relevant IT architecture model that enables a company to plan and prepare towards its long-term competitiveness and value.
Obaforte appreciates that new IT systems represents a significant investment for any business, but often fail to deliver the intended solution. We have a track record of successful project delivery, ranging from small to large and complex projects and programmes. In our experience, we also see that a significant number of projects overrun their allocated budget and timescales – but a relatively small investment in delivery assurance can significantly increase the chances of success. We always work with both the business and suppliers to ensure that we achieve the project objectives.
What we offer:
Risk Analysis: We bring a clear, objective perspective to the area of risk analysis. We present these risks in a manner that is easily understood, but most importantly we give early warning of issues that put delivery at risk. As an add on value, we always ensure that our client has a clear mitigation and recovery plan.
Project delivery: Obaforte through its network of experienced project teams can take-over a project from start or mid-flow. We will ensure that we produce a robust plan and methodology. Our approach is to recover failing projects and ensure that all delivery expectations are achieved. Our mantra is to deliver On Time and Above Customer Expectation.
Project Assurance: We work with our clients to help them build an internal assurance function that adds value by supporting successful project delivery
Our project approach is based on our established project lifecycle.
