A company's technology organization should support its business strategy, not constrain it. Ovesto focuses first on the strategic needs of our clients' businesses to determine the technology capabilities needed to support their long-term goals. We help companies confidently address technology-related decisions and ensure their IT organizations and operating models are agile and effective, equipping them to cut through the noise of fleeting technology trends to create enduring results. Our experience is not just through consulting, we are experienced CIOs and CTOs who have worked in some of the largest global companies.
Transformations are at the core of what our team has been doing for over 20 years. While the term transformation can mean many things, we define it in the most literal sense: a cross-functional effort to alter the financial, operational and strategic trajectory of a business, with a stated goal of producing game-changing results.
Digital, Advanced Analytics
Big data, digital strategies and advanced analytics are creating profound new opportunities for businesses, yet according to several studies only 4% of companies are able to combine the right people, tools, data and organizational focus to take advantage. To realize the value of big data and digital organizations need strategic—and not merely technological—solutions. Ovesto’s digital experience and analytical expertise help ensure that businesses build the right capabilities to mine data for insights that can enable better decisions and create value.
Are your competitors talking about you in their boardrooms? Does your strategy guide how you allocate resources? Can every employee articulate your strategy and are they empowered to execute on it? At Ovesto, we see strategy as much more than a plan. We work with companies to develop strategies that deliver results.
Product Innovation & Development
Modernization is challenging for any company. Nearly three-quarters of executives say it’s a top-three priority for their organizations—yet less than 20% believe they are advantaged. Top performers look at innovation as a structure. They combine a sharp strategy for where and how to innovate with a fast, agile, and lean product development process that efficiently transforms ideas into lucrative growth.
M&A and Divestitures
M&A and divestitures are increasingly critical to business success. Why? Growth drives value creation, and acquisitions offer a way to grow when organic growth is limited. Actively thinning the business portfolio over time also helps a company sustain its capacity to deliver value. It’s not an easy thing to do—most M&As actually destroy value. The key is to manage corporate transactions as complete process and a core part of the companies identity, not an occasional activity.
Postmerger integration is one of the most important aspects of realizing the value of a deal but one of the most over looked competences. It’s also extremely complex, taking place under severe time pressure and in parallel to running the core business—making it one of the most challenging initiatives companies will ever undertake. What’s the secret to success? Focus on the strategic objectives of the deal, accelerate synergies, and build a high-performance organization. With over 20 integrations under our belts, we have proven a multiplier effect from optimizing the sum of the parts, not just the individual pieces.
