We live in an era of disruption and digital transformations. Firms are seeking ways to be competitive by migrating to the Cloud to one, reduce their technology footprint and two, reduce their existing security risk of on-premise solutions. They are also attempting multi-year road-map efforts to Modernize their Platform by migrating to a central repository like SAP, Salesforce, Workday, Snowflake, a Data Lake or they are looking to refactor their code and identify tools that can be replaced or decommissioned or they are looking for hidden data factories and non-value-add processes that can be eliminated from their legacy infrastructure. All of these require significant change management components to reduce risks as a result of the Migrations/Modernizations. There are also Metadata inconsistency issues, Data Quality business rules inconsistencies, Master Data and Data Governance concerns that have to be grappled with and addressed.
Modernization means change. And change is hard (especially cultural change). It is not easy to become a CloudFirst, APIFirst, PrivacyFirst, CustomerFirst and Self-Service organization overnight. But modernization is making firms take the hards steps to make that a reality. Orion EIIG brings an end-to-end view of the data/technology supply chain and provides transparency, while building trust and propagating it on such large efforts. EIIG also provides the space for collaboration for these efforts to succeed.
