Transition as a Service

NWT has many years’ experience of supporting all aspects of Transition Management – both from the perspective of moving from project implementation to ‘business as usual’ as well as the introduction of new or replacement IT solutions to support business transformation. We will share our wealth of knowledge and experience to help you rapidly move to your new target operations as quickly and efficiently as possible ensuring business continuity throughout the whole of the transition.

Every business is different with its own set of desired outcomes, drivers and risk profiles. Your transition may be a data centre migration to the cloud, a new storage and backup infrastructure, a major application upgrade or the transition of a service to another supplier. You could be facing immense timeline pressures due to business risk, regulation changes, M&A, growth or supply chain issues due to a global pandemic. Without doubt, there will be critical business processes impacted by the changes you propose. So, how do you translate your strategy and ambitions into reality?

Managing any major change programme, is an extremely daunting task, one that covers the whole project lifecycle. Delivering a successful transition relies on much more than just technical skills and capability. It requires careful planning, execution and performance measurement and involves people, processes, technology, infrastructure and tools, and the adoption of best practices and standards.

Realisation of the benefits and the timely execution of the change programme relies heavily on a mature Transition Plan. To create that plan, it will be critical to complete an overview of your current situation including technology, applications and data to support the business and execute the service. You will also need to define locations in terms of ‘where from’ and ‘where to’, processes and procedures as well as sourcing or suppliers and people. Ideally you should clearly set the appropriate expectations for the performance and usage of new or changed services and how they will deliver incremental value. As well as defining the transition approach you will also need to ensure that the right set of tools and frameworks are in place to deliver change promptly to meet your specific timescales. You must then add in sufficient checks and balances, security measures and a continuous improvement mind-set to ensure that the changes you implement continue to deliver the business value you require.

NWT provides an approach that can help you introduce the new services and expected value you require in a controlled and non-disruptive manner – on demand – as a Service.
