Strategic Challenges

AscentBT has a strong program for helping clients build IT strategic plans inclusive of goals, objectives, roadmaps, financials, risks, and action plans.  These strategic plans can be high-level or extremely detailed and prescriptive, depending on the client need.  The strategic plans can be developed for the overall IT group, for individual IT departments, or for specific IT domains.

Many companies are comfortable with their IT strategic plans and prefer to review the progress of the plans by assessing the maturity of services delivered for either the overall IT group, for individual IT departments, or for specific IT domains.  AscentBT has a very strong maturity assessment program that helps client’s understand the quality of the services being delivering by IT.

Digital transformation is the process of using digital technologies to create new (or modify existing) business processes or customer experiences to meet the changing business and market requirements.  

The digital transformation begins by defining the processes or customer experiences that need to be transformed, why they need to be transformed, the resulting objectives of the transformation, and the measurements and metrics that will be used to determine if the transformation has been successful.  

Once these have been defined, the next level of prescriptive planning and execution for the transformation becomes straight forward and the probability of success greatly increased.

Too often, digital transformations are started before the strategy has been defined resulting in the objectives not being achieved.

AscentBT has a program that helps clients build and implement their digital transformation strategies in a manner that ensures goals and expected outcomes can be tracked and achieved.  

AscentBT works with it’s clients to ensure their cloud strategies and programs achieve the targeted objectives or helps the clients develop and implement the strategies and programs.  This includes the business, operating, technical, financial, or risk objectives..    

AscentBT provides services that will make your financials more transparent to improve management, decision-making, EPS and/or EBITDA.  AscentBT also provides a cost optimization program that will reduce your capital and operating cost structure and improve efficiencies. These services are comprised of a set of modules that can be executed in total or sub modules and can be applied on an enterprise basis or across specific departments, products, or services. 

AscentBT Technologies provides due diligence, integration, divestiture and carve-out services to financial institutions, private equity, and venture capital firms that ensure financial targets and M&A goals are met while mitigating operating, customer, cybersecurity, and regulatory risk.
