Create a Low-Risk Strategy to Transform, Modernize, and Cloud-Enable Your Business with the
Smartronix FAST (Foundational, Agile, Strategic, Transformation) Program
No company wants to be disrupted by competitors that use technology to be more agile and
innovate faster. Traditional corporate organizational structures and legacy IT
infrastructures are simply too slow and inflexible to keep up. To be competitive in today's
digitally-enabled world, you need to re-architect your organization and IT infrastructure so
the business can deliver superior customer experience. Continuing to do business as usual is
not an option. Failing to modernize or approaching modernization without a thoughtful
strategy can lead to failure.
Transforming your organization, business processes, and the way IT services are delivered is
a major undertaking as it impacts the entire value chain. For many, the migration to cloud
often begins as small pilot programs. These pilot programs tend to sprawl over time, often
introducing competing technologies into the company's IT landscape. As a result, IT
organizations end up trying to corral shadow IT activity rather than innovating and adding
value. In addition, foundational elements necessary for long term viability are often
overshadowed by early pilot project success and not properly addressed. This can potentially
leave critical gaps in business goals, strategy, operations, governance, and security. An
enterprise-wide well thought out strategy to business and technology modernization is a key
to succeeding today and in the future.
Build an Effective Business and Technology Transformation Strategy with the Smartronix Fast
Modernization is more than simply moving your infrastructure and apps into the cloud. Success
is measured on your ability to leverage technological and organizational change to innovate
faster, engage with customers more effectively, and operate more efficiently. The FAST
(Foundational Agile Strategic Transformation) program helps your organization perform
high-level introspection, assessment, analysis, and blueprinting to create a detailed
roadmap for business and digital transformation.
FAST uncovers and addresses gaps in your business goals, strategy, operations, governance,
and security to provide a detailed roadmap to efficiently execute the transformation process
across people, processes, technology, and corporate culture. FAST uses Agile best practices
combined with a comprehensive choice of activities and deliverables. This modular approach
enables you to configure the program with just the components you need based on where you
are on the cloud maturity curve and transformation lifecycle.
Because business modernization is more than just transforming your technology stack, FAST is
more than just a technical solution. It identifies both technical and organizational
challenges and provides a path for addressing these challenges. The process also uses an
end-to-end approach to eliminate silos, gaps, and pain points, as well as develop a
prioritized set of initiatives.
The 3 Phases of the Smartronix Fast Program
Smartronix Cloud Assured consultants work with your team to clarify your business problems
and strategic objectives. Depending on where you are in the business and technology
transformation process, they collaborate with you to develop or modify, and validate your
strategy by creating a vision and a set of core guiding principles. These deliverables help
ensure the right business objectives and operational requirements are addressed in
subsequent phases of the process.
Building the underpinnings for an effective design and implementation plan starts with an
enterprise-level gap analysis to determine which foundational components need to be changed
and what new components need to be added to execute your strategy. Smartronix also reviews
the organizational challenges you are facing to develop a change-management strategy and
roadmap. In addition, Smartronix helps you build a team that is responsible for establishing
and executing the cloud strategy, governance, and best practices that the rest of the
organization will use to transform the business.
Once a firm foundation is established, Smartronix will create an integrated business strategy
approach which will include a transformation roadmap, foundational architecture, and
operations framework. Finally, the team generates a prioritized sequence of initiatives
based on benefits, costs, dependencies, complexity, and the overall implementation timeline.
