Holistic consulting services for CIO-areas

CIOs are faced with a dilemma: they have to master the complex challenge of being able to accomplish two conflicting goals with one IT.

Goal 1: Services provided in a commodity service environment that make up the bulk of business, such as e-mail, ERP or desktop services, must remain consistently stable and cost-effective, while enhancing productivity every year. Standardization, automation and evaluation of scale effects are a must.

Goal 2: However, these do nothing to drive a company’s innovative capacity. Enhancing innovation requires solution approaches that enable the development of business models that are consistently cutting edge and doing so in a time of increasingly shorter innovation cycles. Fast time-to-market, as well as agility and flexibility are among the new demands that pose significant challenges for IT departments that have expanded along a more traditional course. In addition to stability and continuity, the IT of the future will also have to be flexible and agile. These features can be managed through so-called “bimodal IT”, also referred to as “2-speed IT”.

m3 management consulting supports CIOs from all different industries and fields, whether in solving strategic issues or in design and implementation matters.
