How to migrate from point solutions to enterprise capabilities


Inadequate legacy, stagnant proprietary, and tribal knowledge-driven systems…they haunt us all. I’ve consulted with innumerable clients who shrug their shoulders when asked to explain how a point solution arrived, where it came from, what problem it solves, or where it is going. All they know is that it was here when they arrived, and everyone blindly adheres to it – not quite the high-confidence response consultants seek in these process-style interviews.

Times are changing. Companies today, regardless of their industry, landscape, or focus, need more transparency, more collaboration, and more intelligent processes. They need to understand the “why” in why they do what they do – because their competitors do.

Deep down, companies know this. In fact, many know that an entire new genre of solutions has come forward, known as “work management,” and the founders of this movement at Workfront opened the stage for a new industry. Workfront manages how work is done, in a centralized platform, across the enterprise, and it sets users free from clogged emails and centralizes, in one place, everything from due dates to creative briefs, budgets, and digital assets.

Capgemini believes in making work more efficient, and it leverages Workfront to help clients migrate from their disparate point solutions into the modern world of work management, synergizing cross-departmental collaboration for a common enterprise goal. You read that right – departments working together in common goal setting.

Understanding how work is done, how information is shared, who needs to be involved, and who pays for it, are questions common to most companies, yet they are answerable by just a few. Companies that don’t know who is doing what, why, when, and for whom will be bested by those who invest in work management, operational efficiencies, and rapid-deployment capabilities.

We understand that change is not easy. Moving from point solutions to enterprise capability requires a reckoning in why and how companies do what they do. It takes coordinated effort, clear communication, and strong executive support from start to finish to ensure a successful software adoption. It also takes metrics to capture the change.

Because, when something is working, word tends to get around.

If your organization struggles with silos and forgotten critical information, if your work is slow and resources are overwhelmed, if your customer requirements conversion to delivery don’t match, call Capgemini and let our digital-transformation team create a roadmap with you to harness the power of modern work management.
