“IDEA”: Illutas Digital Ecosystem Accelerator

“Digitalisation” is a big topic in business right now, but it is not new. Business has been digitalising processes and creating new digital business models for many years. The difference now is one of growing options (e.g. internet of things, big data, mobile computing), cost and acceptance. This creates opportunities but also risks for many organisations.

The Illutas Digital Excellence Accelerator (IDEA) has been developed to help companies exploit these opportunities and deal with these risks. IDEA focuses on core business issues and is:

  • Simple: it consists of straightforward, industry-tailored, steps.
  • Flexible: IDEA can be configured and repeated at different levels to meet different requirements.
  • Efficient: delivered as a fixed price work-package, results can usually be obtained in a few workshops.

IDEA is can be used as an accelerator for new Digital Initiatives, as a basis for planning and budgeting or as a kick-starter and brainstorming input to existing programmes.

“CIO in a Box”: IT Management-as-a-Service

The "CIO in a Box" Service has been set up for companies that either don't have, or don't want to have, a permanent strategic IT management position, but are still confronted with major IT challenges.

The C-Box subscription service provides these strategic IT skills in a flexible, cost efficient and customer-tailored way.

The IT strategy, frameworks and guidelines are defined together with the management team. The required processes and tools are also determined and configured. The approach follows the "as much as needed, as little as possible" principle. Tools, processes, templates and the like can be provided by Illutas when required.

The C-Box service is always available to management for questions and consultations and the strategy and guidelines are monitored regularly against the results and adjusted where required. Further consultation service packages are obviously available upon request.
