Urgent IT build out meets impending compliance requirements and significantly reduces tech spend

The Challenge

A $500 million natural gas company's growth was threatened by its lack of a formal IT organization and business support capability. The customer’s COO wanted to move forward with Salesforce as a hub application platform for the company. However, the IT organization had minimal understanding of the platform, application architecture, and hybrid Cloud/Premise environment. In order to move forward at the urgent pace desired, an external project and development capability needed to be sourced quickly.

The Solution

Aspirant worked closely with executive management to rapidly create a fully tailored enterprise PMO (ePMO). Simultaneously, the team conducted a comprehensive Business Enablement Assessment that provided a foundation for IT application portfolio and architecture improvement. These efforts led to an expedited framing and launch of three critical business transformation programs, the organization and execution of over 100 projects, and the approval of a formal IT build out and development plan.

The Results

  • Established a fully operational ePMO, launched three strategic business transformation programs, managed over 100 projects, and organized the first formal IT function.
  • Significant improvement in IT application and project governance, spend, and delivery capability/reliability.
  • Reduction in technology spend, application portfolio size, and project delivery timeframe.
  • Simplification of the application architecture and portfolio while simultaneously improving business support.
