Achieving Workforce Productivity

"Doing more with less" that is the bottom line for the organization and that is why executives are constantly looking for ways to improve productivity among the workforce.
One area often overlooked in addressing workforce productivity is the area of predictive analysis. If you could only predict where problems will arise within the organization so you could be better prepared to mitigate the problem or respond more effectively.
Predictive analysis is especially critical when managing your IT infrastructure. How well does your IT infrastructure support your business requirements? Can you predict where your systems will next impact business performance? Do you know the demands made on your current systems or how demands will change with new business processes or spikes in production or workload?
What's lacking in many organizations is the visibility of your Business operations within the context of your Technology infrastructure. Business Technology Integration provides a new view of your organization and helps executives communicate with technology stakeholders to answer these critical questions. The Business and Systems BlueprintTM is a valuable predictive analysis tool that enables informed decision making, which can head off problems and dramatically increase workforce productivity.

A 3- Dimensional View

An Offer You Can't Refuse!

The health of an oganization is hard to measure. Executives can sense when something is not right, but it is sometimes hard to point to the problem. Often organizational health problems are defined in business-centric or technology-centric views. Consequently, almost all efforts focus on one of these two dimensions of the organization. Business modeling is done, with some processes changed, or new technology is explored and new systems are acquired. However, these approaches are missing an important dimension, the dimension of the organization. It is the organizational dimension that provides the context for business operations and technology, without it, business processes and systems can become mis-aligned, creating problems that are hard to isolate and remedy.

I would suggest a 3-Dimensional approach to assess organizations. By incorporating the business operations and technology support with overall organizational information, a unified view of problems can be provided. This unified look at an organization, business operations and technology provides solutions that transcend limited approaches that only re-engineer business processes or add yet another system to your technology infrastructure.
