We work with our clients to assess opportunities to improve IT performance, identifying the resources and capabilities necessary to ensure lasting results.
Building on Bain's extensive experience in performance improvement and operations consulting, our experts help leaders diagnose and address concerns that their technology organizations are inefficient or ineffective and may therefore be limiting productivity, outcomes and business performance.
Depending on our client's ambitions and goals, we can either help companies focus on reducing costs to streamline IT to perform more efficiently or look to bring costs, capabilities, technology, and governance and alignment to full potential. Working in tandem with our clients, we focus on three aspects of technology performance:
- Governance and alignment: Are IT efforts and investments focused on what matters most to the business? Specifically, do they address changing consumer preferences and disruptive technologies such as mobile, cloud computing and big data analytics?
- IT capabilities: Does the organization have the right people and processes to deliver the technology the organization needs to thrive?
- Technology environment: Is unnecessary complexity impairing agility and responsiveness? Or are there too many siloed efforts that aim to address specific problems without taking corporate strategy into account?
