Information Technology (IT) Services
Business-driven IT is a management process that aligns the four main business dimensions: Business Strategy, Business Processes, People and Technology. In the 80s, companies invested heavily in Information Technology in order to gain operational efficiency from computer automation. However, isolating one of the above four dimensions had an effect which was, at best, imperfect and, at worst, negative. Resolving business related issues through IT-led solutions could by far treat the symptoms rather than resolve the root cause of a problem.
PARAGON’s business-driven methodology ensures that IT solutions are business enablers rather than business drivers. In this essence, at PARAGON, we assist our clients first in tailoring a systematic and structured approach to the unique requirements of individual clients and then work closely with them, rather than over them. In this way, PARAGON not only achieves its assignment objectives, but also facilitates the transfer of skills. Assignments are conducted in an objective and thorough manner, which closely involves business management. The business focus ensures the highest quality in the resulting Information Systems.
The root causes of dissatisfaction with return on IT lie primarily in organization and business issues, not technology (as illustrated in the following table).
