Building a Strong IT Department to Facilitate Growth

Do you have the right strategy to grow?

Recently, a high-level and quickly growing agricultural company realized that they needed to maximize their current IT department to facilitate rapid growth and to support both domestic and global operations. A mixture of applications and systems were relied upon as key information portals, from ERP Web access to homegrown applications. BI and SharePoint had been implemented with only short-term goals in mind, however, and without governance — which created a situation in which an overall Enterprise Strategy was largely nonexistent. 

Configure roadmaps to achieve business goals 

After meeting with the client, the team at Pariveda sat down to develop both a short-term and a long-term SharePoint roadmap. Not only were infrastructure and configuration requirements developed for a scale-out deployment, but a custom document expiration process was also implemented to better enforce document retention policies. A proven SharePoint framework was also recommended, utilizing all of the industry best practices. 

Additionally, Pariveda recommended a Business Intelligence Roadmap that provided guidance toward making available the client's business and research data. A Proof of Concept research Performance Point BI solution showed how to surface their research data for frictionless research. A Business Intelligence roadmap was also employed, which showed how to apply governance to their BI activities and development.

Plan supports growth and global expansion 

At the end of the project, this roadmap provided a full foundational outline that put the client in the best possible position to achieve all of their business goals through the enablement and support of technology. Design and recommendations, all of which were based on industry best practices, were able to guarantee the ability to support an ongoing global expansion. A plan for migration and the sunset of legacy applications also went a long way toward reducing both risk and IT costs at the same time.
