Strategy Execution

Organisations are very good at defining strategies, visions, goals and objectives. However, all too often, the translation from strategy to delivery is done poorly, so change programmes fail to deliver on the business vision.

Optimation helps you translate strategy into tangible business outcomes. Our approach ensures the IT innovation lifecycle is effectively designed and managed to realise sustained benefits from business transformation.

Cloud Enablement

Moving services into the cloud delivers benefits including cost savings, greater business agility, and increased access and integration across the supply chain. But do you go public, private, or hybrid? Which applications are ready to go into the cloud? What are the implications?

Optimation helps you navigate the challenges of cloud enablement to drive innovation, efficiency and agility across the enterprise and deliver on your strategic goals.

Unlocking the value of your data and information

Information Management

Organisations have the ability to mine vast stores of data to innovate and solve business problems, but the sheer variety of these information assets also brings new headaches. Siloed data, poor integration and lack of clear ownership or governance result in reduced productivity, slower response times, decision-making based on unreliable information, and poor value delivered to the business.

Optimation helps you unlock the value of information assets by transforming data into insights and intelligence, and getting relevant information to the right people, when and how they need it.

Enterprise Awareness

Awareness of what is happening across the enterprise is fundamental to making good decisions that result in alignment and focus at all levels. However, improvements in decision support are often focused on operations and been limited to structured data. This results in poor support for decision making, duplication of efforts, and poor risk management. It also hampers any effort to deliver large-scale business transformation.

Optimation helps you leverage collective intelligence by using Enterprise Awareness to maintain strategic alignment and focus. We help you lift business performance by improving governance across the integration of outcomes, performance, risk and change.

Business Analytics

Today, BAU operations generate more information than ever. At the same time, new channels of engagement create exponential growth in the data available. This creates new headaches around storage and management, so that too much time is spent handling data rather analysing it. The result is limited capability to make better evidence-based decisions, to create richer and deeper insights about customers, and to measure and track success using the right KPIs.

Optimation helps you use business analytics to understand what you need to do, rather than what you’ve already done. Our Business Analytics solutions empower you to make better decisions through insight and intelligence.

Outsourcing

When you’re delivering enterprise-scale, mission critical solutions, the biggest challenge to generating sustainable business value during and after implementation is getting the optimal balance of time, cost, and quality. In rapid growth periods or dealing with the demands of a big project, outsourcing some components or all of your IT function will allow you to re-focus on those business activities that are important without sacrificing time, cost or quality. Outsourcing some or all of your functions can give you the ability to re-focus on important business activities, generate cost and efficiency savings, reduce overheads and provide you the ability to flex resourcing up and down based on demand.

Optimation’s broad outsource capability brings you scale, resource flexibility, and a competitive edge that will reduce costs, complexity, and risk across your IT environment, while providing a quality foundation for effective business innovation.

High performing development team

The strategic imperatives created by ever-shorter business cycles put enormous pressure on any organisation’s ability to efficiently manage delivery. You need to quickly build effective delivery teams, coping with additional overheads and new team dynamics while also dealing with BAU demands. The team needs time to get established and implement efficient frameworks and processes, but the lag this creates can be the difference between success and failure when it comes to cracking complex markets and gaining competitive advantage through rapid innovation.

Optimation offers you a New Zealand-based internationally experienced high performing Java development team that is primed to get your project out of the blocks fast. We work as a co-located team, leveraging repeatable frameworks and processes that are proven to deliver business outcomes. We enable your organisation to rapidly develop, integrate, test and deploy multi-language products and services for local and global markets.

Application Support

Managing a complex application environment can be a frustrating task that uses up precious resources and budget that would be better focused on delivering business innovation. A cost-effective way to solve this problem is to outsource application support to a specialist provider like Optimation.

Optimation keeps your systems working smoothly for a predictable transparent cost, freeing you to focus on core competencies and business innovation. Under an ITIL-aligned, outcomes driven model, we take over the headaches of day-to-day application support, development and maintenance, from deployment through to end-of-life.

Providing a capability uplift

One of the biggest challenges facing businesses today is the need to secure, manage and retain high-calibre talent while ensuring HR costs and management overheads are managed effectively. Organisations that resort to hiring contractors to supplement specialist capability are exposed to losing valuable intellectual property and placing successful delivery outcomes at risk. The challenge of quickly locating, assessing and securing the right talent with the right skills and motivation can prove expensive and time-consuming, in addition to the overhead of induction and on-going management of externally provided resources.

Optimation’s Managed Resource Service (“MRS”) enables you to retain ownership and control of your IT investment and business IP, while having the freedom to tap into diverse, pre-qualified talent pools consisting of accredited IT professionals to work on special projects or to address operational needs.

Practice Capability Development

To effectively move from design to implementation requires method and application of skill and discipline. Method and discipline are achieved through the establishment of Practice.
We recognise that organisations go through a number of states as they mature their Practices. Our own experience of Practice design and development has concluded with our ability to formally share our experience and learning with others.

Optimation can help you to mature your existing practices and identify improvement opportunities that unlock business value.

Optimation’s Practice Capability Framework supports the design of new, or refinement and maturing of existing Practice. Our Practice framework is generic and will support Practice design for any of the multiple disciplines that traverse the ‘strategy to delivery’ continuum including:
• Business Architecture
• Information Management
• Business Intelligence
• Project Management
• Solution/Technical Architecture
• Business Analysis
• Development and Integration
• Testing
• Support.
