Global forces are transforming how businesses operate and driving change in the supporting technology services. The role of the CIO was already transforming under constant pressure to cut costs, deliver more value and innovate. Today, against a backdrop of store closings, oil prices tumbling, and a global pandemic, the office of the CIO needs to be laser focused. As the lines between business and IT disappear, we believe technology becomes the business. Hence the role of the CIO as a force to survive and thrive is even more critical.
Our strategy and advisory services for the office of the CIO will help to enable them to drive lower costs, higher ROI, and more value back to the business quickly.
Wipro’s CIO Strategy and Advisory practice helps the CIO in three key areas:
- Enterprise Strategy and Advisory: It has never been more critical for CIOs to have line of sight from business needs and priorities through portfolio management and governance to operating models and delivery strategy. Our Enterprise Strategy Road Map service connects business demand with the technology portfolio to support investment decisions. Our CIO Performance Management brings the experience and tools to provide CIOs with the diagnostic information, dashboards and resources to manage their IT services.
- Cloud Strategy and Advisory: The first wave of cloud adoption and migration are over. As we enter the second wave of cloud adoption and start dealing with systems of record, hybrid cloud solutions and data center shutdowns, the CIO needs an integrated end-to-end cloud strategy and migration plan that spans application infrastructure. Using cloud adoption as a strategic lever to bring more agility to the organization requires a vision and plan that the CIO’s business peers can support. This holistic approach will require a new operating model that allows them to take advantage of cloud and digital technologies. Our Cloud Strategy and Advisory team can help.
- Program Transformation: Delivery excellence can make or break a CIO’s career. When a CIO calls Wipro to deliver a large program, we often act in the role of system integrator or transformation partner, leading large transformation initiatives and acting as the PMO facilitator. As such, the CIO needs strong seasoned leaders to help guide the team and manage delivery through the lifecycle, managing the volatility involved in complex engagements. Our team ensures the CIO meets his/her program goals at a rapid pace and within cost constrains. We have established a Program Transformation service to oversee large, complex transformation program deliveries and also focus on large cloud migration programs.
