When technology issues become business issues C-Level resources need to act quickly. Money can’t be spent on defining the wrong solution nor can time be lost repairing insignificant problems. Some issues arise quickly like excessive system errors and high costs of repair, while others develop over time like ERP management issues and overlapping technology operations.
Regardless of the reasons, technology needs to show business value as it enhances innovation.
When evaluating technology it is critical to look at all the components that affect business. Technology encompasses people, processes and data along with system applications. A solution must include evaluation of all components to ensure success. While identifying priorities, careful insight must be taken when determining the value of opportunities that exist within the current infrastructure.
A value driven roadmap clearly identifies the path for innovating business.
The Xceleon methodology incorporates specific information that spans an organization’s infrastructure including Technology, People, Process and Data. Our application management experts use a proven approach to gather the appropriate information across the entire application lifecycle. Our automated Value Realization Ecosystem (VRE) expedites value driven results seamlessly by calculating value opportunities, scoring Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) process operations and creating comprehensive mitigating plans.
Services include but not limited to:
Xceleon provides existing and future clients with the ability to identify and quantify business operational deficiencies by performing an in depth value assessment leveraging Xceleon’s Value Realization Ecosystem (VRE) as well as partner software tools. Business and IT deficiencies are discovered when evaluating people, process, data, and technology alignment configurations. We have helped our client base realize over $1 billion in total cost savings in 2016.
The Xceleon VRE captures information across the entire application lifecycle and generates the Value Driven Roadmap that builds a comprehensive plan across multiple Application Life Cycle Areas (ALM) areas:
Business/IT Alignment… Business Process Operations… Change Management… Code Management… Contract & License Management… Cloud Readiness… Data Volume Management… End User Adoption… Enterprise Application Coverage… Data Accessibility… Incident Management… Information Management… Job Scheduling… Quality Management… Root Cause Analysis… Solution Documentation… Solution Implementation Management… Technical Monitoring & Operations… Template Monitoring… Test Management… Upgrade Management… Security…
The Xceleon Pre Assessment is a quick way to determine the ALM areas that have the most to gain from making changes. Clients are asked a series of questions that involve their status on areas surrounding People, Process, Data and Technology. A score is produced that grades each area as it relates to minimally six core ALM categories.
Industry standards are used to present financial impact as clients can see what results can pessimistically and optimistically look like. This service requires minimal consulting resources and results are turned around quickly.
The Xceleon Value Driven Roadmap presents detailed results for total ALM expenditures as well as a clear value assessment that fosters business growth. Current application costs and savings are clearly presented along with Return on Investment dollars and time estimates. Deliverables include:
The Xceleon Full assessment is a comprehensive look into an organizations infrastructure. Detailed questions are asked for all ALM categories and company specific results are presented in line with People, Process, Data and Technology.

Technology integration points are also established so that accurate information that is readily available can be obtained.
