A federated organisation in the agricultural logistics business in the Asia-Pacific region had a legacy, custom-made system that managed the operational technology that drove the “source-to-port” logistics chain. The legacy system had evolved over time within the company. As such, there were organic processes that complemented its method of operation; however, this was not necessarily the most optimal practice.
As a result, the client was undertaking a major in-flight logistics project, having selected a leading vendor in operational technology. The vendor had an extensive portfolio of solutions, and a work program exceeding eight figures was approved, based on the vendor’s collective functionality. Yet, not everything in the portfolio had been moved to standard structures, and the client lacked insight into the vendor’s functionality stack, business capabilities, and functional gaps. The client required a deep assessment to determine whether the program was oriented for success and would deliver the desired value.
CohnReznick evaluated the vendor’s proposed solution and program dimensions, as well as the likelihood of the client realising the desired value. Using iServer, CohnReznick quickly built out the business architecture and the associated drivers that informed the strategic decisions (goals, objectives).
iServer was used to define and capture key dimensions of the business elements, including maturity of process, complexity, value delivered, and criticality. The entire vendor profile was assessed and attributes were again used to capture unique dimensions that informed the architecture.
Their client was provided a graphical viewpoint with all the supporting evidence to measure the practicality of the program’s strategic intent; the readiness of the vendor architecture; and the program’s progress. Based on this assessment using iServer, CohnReznick made key recommendations that were accepted by the client, and the program was adjusted to accommodate the new realities.Solve your Challenges
