Get Buy-In

For the integration-enlightened, the case for good integration is a no-brainer. Unfortunately, however, the wider organisation – including those with decision-making responsibilities and purchasing power – are usually sceptical about the contribution such a capability can make. Furthermore, delivering a good integration capability usually requires significant investment, which will take time to pay back.

We understand that a business case must be built not only around the financial pay-back but also around the opportunities and savings that are enabled by doing integration properly. We work with your teams in IT, finance and the wider business to uncover those opportunities and quantify the benefits, such as reuse and API monetisation, to help you present a compelling business case. We take your stakeholders on a journey and gain buy-in so that when the time comes to approve funding, the question is “When can you start?” rather than “Why?”

What We Do

Through a series of structured interviews with key stakeholders and a detailed review of your strategic documentation, we gain a thorough understanding of the priorities driving your organisation, the challenges it faces and the opportunities it sees.  We look for ways in which these are influenced by your ability to integrate your systems effectively and present a concrete case that demonstrates to your decision makers the following:

Return on Investment

Our consultants will develop financial models that show how the investment in the integration capability will pay back over time.

Opportunities Unlocked

We will work with you to uncover and document opportunities that the new integration capability will unlock in your business.

Challenges Addressed

We will work with you to demonstrate how the new integration capability will alleviate or mitigate current issues and challenges that stem from poor data access.

What You Get

We will deliver a business case that works within your organisation, and often that means using your templates.

Executive Business Case Presentation

A high-level business case that presents broad brush costs and benefits, suitable for presentation to senior decision makers and budget holders.

Detailed Business Case Document

A detailed business case in a report and/or spreadsheet format that presents a careful analysis of the costs, benefits, risks and opportunities associated with the investment.

Financial Model

Our business cases are built on sound financial modelling and we will provide the modelling spreadsheet to you, supporting the main documentation and enabling you to perform further analysis as required.
