Step 1 | Digital Maturity Business Assessment

Surface Digital Transformation Gaps

In order to identify the need for a digital transformation strategy, we begin by assessing your organisation’s digital maturity against an industry proven digital business maturity model.

This assessment highlights possible gaps within your digital journey and offers insights into how your organisation can evolve to reach digital maturity. Additionally, the results of the assessment are analysed against competitors, further surfacing the importance of developing a digital transformation strategy in order to remain relevant in a saturating environment.

Outline Digital Organisation Objectives

The digital transformation strategy outlines the projects, technologies, processes, methodologies and practices, that need to be implemented and integrated within the organisation. Subsequent to identifying the need for a digital transformation strategy, we move on to the Current Business Assessment Phase.

Step 2 | Current Business Assessment Phase

Current Business Assessment Discussion
Have a digital business assessment and need guidance on your current business state?

Based on our digital maturity assessment of the business and where the organisation lies on the digital maturity scale, Tangent initiates a review of the current business state.

Moreover, if your business already has the outcomes of a previous digital maturity business assessment, however, lacks clarity and direction, undergoing a current business assessment is the next step in the digital journey. This step enables organisations to define the digital
transformation strategy roadmap.

To determine the current business state, our expert enterprise architects interview key stakeholders in your company in order to understand the organisations’ current context, strategy and objectives.

Gaining an understanding by assessing existing business models, technologies, value chain, practices and processes, enables our architects to build an ‘impact analysis’ of these current models and their effect on the digital capabilities of the business.

The outcome of this analysis encompasses Strategic Business Objective Mapping, Guiding Principles, Digital Transformation Goals, and a Digital Business Architecture Reference Model. These are essential components of the Future State Design Phase.

Step 3 | Future State Design Phase

Once we have determined your business’s current state, Tangent’s Enterprise Architects alongside our Technology Architects, utilise the outcomes to establish a business-driven IT architecture definition that enables modernisation. The definition focuses on technical enablers, as well as the re-design of the current business model, processes and capabilities, to support the modernised business value chain. This forms the foundation of the Digital Transformation Strategy Roadmap.
