IT Remediation & 
Modernization

Strategy

WE OFFER THREE MAIN PRACTICES

Current Earnings Improvement

IT Remediation & Modernization

THE OVERVIEW:

Alldyn assists clients with wholly or partially self-funding technology transformation. We assist with renovation of legacy technology by architecting and implementing fixes to old infrastructure, often while we at the same time assisting with modernization and migration to newer and more competitively palatable platforms.  Furthermore, we work with clients to architect and deploy cutting edge technology to pioneer new use cases.

While we help our clients with all aspects of current earnings improvement, 
we have organized our current earnings work into four subspecialties:
Technology Remediation

We work with organizations to renovate legacy technology to enable them to compete more effectively, often while undertaking, in parallel, modernization that requires longer lead-times.  

We work with clients to improve the functionality and cost of legacy infrastructure and to give them adequate time to work towards longer-term modernization objectives.  For an example, we work with clients to streamline and simply complex mainframe infrastructure, by helping to decommission poorly or unsupported middleware or simplifying customer access to mainframe applications. We also work with helping clients on legacy compute platforms with encryption. We work to identify and implement both data at rest and data in motion. We find ways to optimize or reprioritize expensive workloads.

Technology Modernization

As part of establishing winning technology centric strategies, Alldyn assists in deploying new winning technologies to benefit from  more modern, more nimble and more agile platforms including public cloud, private cloud, and SD-WAN.

A very large number of companies are stuck on legacy technologies such as mainframe, legacy data centers, and traditional MPLS networks. C-Suite executives are stuck between a rock and a hard place having limited knowledge of how to modernize, while still needing to meet quarterly numbers.  As a result, these executives are pressed to devise positive NPV  hardware and software modernization plans.We assist our clients with devising and implementing modernization by moving off legacy platforms to “On-Prem” and/ or public cloud.  Among many things we do,  we work with companies to migrate off the mainframe by devising and implementing solutions that effectively deprecates compute and code while safely and effectively porting data and providing a path to creating new winning applications in a modern environment.

Technology Innovation

We work with our clients to devise cutting edge innovative technology solutions for technology centric strategies.

Alldyn has some of the world's leading practitioners in  leading advanced technologies,  including Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence,  Machine Learning, and Advanced Data Analytics.  The difference between what Alldyn does  and many others is that we are actually working with clients to implement design and implement these new technology based solutions. For an example, we are working on a multi- year engagement with a large “Fin-Tech” company to devise a new peer-to-peer Blockchain based payment solution that captures significant market share from existing high cost solutions. We are also working with a large financial institution to apply Blockchain to “bank” the “un-banked” throughout Latin America.

Our world-class practitioners offer a combination of general and highly specialized approaches to delivering both efficiency and effectiveness improvements in IT.

Technology-Centric Strategy

THE OVERVIEW:

Alldyn’s Strategy professionals and Subject Matter Experts have decades of experience in working with clients of diverse sizes and ownership structures to develop the latest and most advanced technology based  strategies. We apply Alldyn’s unique consulting model (senior experienced professionals with subject matter experts), and technology prowess to craft winning strategies with our clients.  

We have three sub-practices within strategy including our corporate strategy and business unit strategy practices and our strategic trends analytics:
Corporate Strategy

At Alldyn, we recognize that we cannot predict the future and that the best laid plans must always be flexible.  As such, we seek both to understand the mechanics of future trends and to imagine the multiple ways these trends might shape the business arenas of our clients.  

Large holding companies across the world are under siege by so-called “disrupters” with nimble and agile technology platforms.  In a number of major industries, large corporations are stuck on legacy platforms such as mainframe and legacy data centers and the “triangle of doom”:  antiquated technology, lagging the competition,, and an inability  to construct a positive NPV for enterprise wide technology modernization. We work with corporate holding companies to a devise deliberate technology centric strategies to enable a renewed ability to compete in critical current or future businesses. We help companies devise technology strategies to attain strategic agility, and the ability to create continuous improvements.We also work with holding companies to develop new businesses through technology innovation either through “greenfield” innovation and or acquisition.  

In short, Alldyn’s BottomLine is to improve our Clients’ Bottom Line through Value Creation. We do this through a number of levers: operational efficiency improvements, greater effectiveness of business initiatives, prudent allocation of capital, and ongoing control and monitoring of risk and security vulnerabilities.

Business Unit Strategy

We assist clients in developing winning Business Unit strategies in industries that aresignificantly impacted by accelerating technological change.

Alldyn’s Business Unit Strategy practice is focused on working with business leaders to develop winning  strategies that embrace technology as a key driver of potential success. While we can assist Line of Business management with a wide range of  strategy problems, our practice is particularly engaged with how technology is changing the basis for competition.  Alldyn helps Business Unit clients with a variety of issues including, “Digitization”. Unfortunately, digitization is an overused term that more often than not is talked about in the context of needing to catch up. We create digital delivery capabilities to  leapfrog competition, leveraging tools  such as advanced analytics of large datasets, machine learning, AI, and Robotics. We also work with clients to innovate and exploit Blockchain where there are plausible use cases. We work closely with our subsidiary company “PureNext” to build new client solutions in Blockchain, Robotics, or AI.

Strategic Trends Analytics

Our Strategic Trends Analytics practice assists clients with in-depth discovery of technology, economic, consumer, and other trends that are impacting their industry.

Today, every consulting website makes reference to disruption, digitization, the “internet of things”, “cloud”, “block-chain”, “robotics”, and “big data." These are significant trends, but other less mentioned phenomena can be more important to a particular company. Because of unprecedented complexity and accelerating technological change, strategy is increasingly challenging for business leaders. Our strategic trends practice is in place to help our clients understand the most important technological, economic, consumer, and other trends impacting their business or businesses today. This practice makes extensive use of both our SME network, particularly our SMEs in the academic community, and our Analytics Group. Through this practice, we provide our clients with in-depth analysis of the most important critical externalities impacting their business or businesses.

Current Earnings Improvement

THE OVERVIEW:

Our current earnings improvement practitioners work with clients to achieve significant profit increases within one year or less. Our professionals have stellar track records in helping companies increase their profits and delivering new economics under severe time pressure. We persist until results are solidly in place and are contributing to higher profitability. In current earnings improvement work, we often link our fees to the results we deliver.

While we help our clients with all aspects of current earnings improvement, 
we have organized our current earnings work into four subspecialties:

Strategic Sourcing

Our sourcing practitioners are pioneers in applying state-of-the-art techniques to source both indirect and direct goods and services in a wide range of industries.

Alldyn’s strategic sourcing practice consists of formidable world-class professionals focused on complex sourcing challenges.  Many types of purchasing are complex including various “direct” spending in industrial, and “indirect” categories such onshore and offshore contract labor, legal services, outsourced IT services, and telecoms. Organizations often struggle to understand what is procured and paid for, as the data resides on disparate systems with different formats, if even in digital form. Furthermore, in these spend categories, the output and specifications are opaque, usage can be unwieldy when decentralized, and there is a significant asymmetry in the technical knowledge between buyer and seller.  

We work with clients to establish an organized, logical picture of spending. We look to build a detailed spending topology, to bridge the technical knowledge gap between our clients and their vendors, and to provide a solid basis for creating state-of-the-art RFPs and negotiating best-in-class pricing, quality, and service level agreements.

Process & Activity Rationalization

Our process and activity rationalization practice has developed groundbreaking approaches to restructure work utilizing big data analytics.

We believe traditional techniques such as “Six Sigma," “Lean," and “Six Sigma Lean” are at an impasse with a world that has turned digital. Workflow management systems, e-mail, and instant messaging have changed the way people work. Work is less well understood today than ever. While digitization is popularly thought to create efficiencies, it has also diminished transparency. Manufacturing work and the number of workers engaged in well-defined, closed-circuit-type processes are shrinking, while work directed at episodic tasks with high variability and context switching is increasing. With the disappearance of line-of-sight management and the rise of the “knowledge worker”, legacy performance management approaches have been reduced to guesswork.

Alldyn is pioneering corporate performance improvement. Alldyn’s work in process redesign and activity rationalization has shifted from relying on interviews, time and motion studies, and report extracts to in-depth analysis of large digital data sets. Our work requires fewer bodies and more technical expertise directed at data management and analysis either to supplement or replace traditional information sources.

Organizational Restructuring & Realignment

We work with clients to rationalize spans and layers, organizational redundancies, misalignments, and executive responsibilities.

Alldyn has world-class organizational design practitioners. Alldyn’s organizational changes efforts are directed at both current earnings improvement and optimizing alignment between strategy and structure.  

This work includes realigning spans and layers, eliminating organizational redundancies, rightsizing, and restructuring corporate center functions, all of which offer an immediate source of earnings improvement. So many companies, even prominent ones, have over time been constructed by default via mergers, individual agendas, or other suboptimal reasons.  

Companies know when they have a dysfunctional organizational structure. Nonetheless, it is challenging for them to reorganize from within, as executives can find it difficult to execute on decisions that can disrupt their own or other people’s careers.
