KPMG – the clear choice for the design and implementation of the topics on the CIO’s agenda

A common weakness is the lack of alignment between the business & IT. Synchronization and integration of business and IT strategies is a key success factor. Often, the required alignment of strategic IT objectives to the business objectives does not occur. We can guide you through the process and help you develop an integrated IT strategy.

The strategic guidelines then need to combine into a future-proof IT architecture. In practice, we find heterogeneous architectural landscapes. The key challenge in the architectural design is less the design of a future-ready architecture capable of supporting scaling and innovation, but rather the design of the transformation itself. We support you in the process of dynamically evolving your existing architectures – especially in the cloud environment.

Directly related to the IT architecture is the question of the appropriate operating and sourcing model – i.e. which service providers and partners should be integrated within your own architecture? In practice, there are very different sourcing strategies and ecosystems, from the monolithic contractual relationships of “full outsourcing” to very piecemeal “out-tasking” landscapes. Our experts can develop custom sourcing strategies tailored to your specific needs.
