Our Perspectives

Quoting James Deacon, "What you see depends not only on what you look at, but also, where you look from." Perspective comes from experience, and our experiences have taught us valuable lessons that we bring to each client engagement.

We view companies
in a specific way

We help companies create scale and assess its maturity level very quickly using our simple grid.​

Our assessment includes important non-IT elements which affect a company’s use of technology.​

Profitable growth requires increasing maturity across all aspects of a company, not just IT and systems. ​

Our experiences say:​

  • Higher revenue often does not mean advanced processes​

  • The mid-market is often caught with technology anchors​

  • Culture and mindset are often the most difficult obstacles​

  • Fractional technology leadership works​

The term "ERP"
is antiquated

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are geared for the management of a single company’s operations.  ERP was a critical requirement for Industry 3.0.​

Digital includes how a company extends its operations to customers, suppliers and employees.  Digital capabilities are the cornerstone to Industry 4.0.​

An “ERP” mindset will limit your success in the digital market.​

Our experiences say:​

  • An “ERP” strategy will limit your digital reach and growth​

  • Customers, suppliers and employees have digital expectations​

  • Terminology and understanding are the first steps in adoption​


ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Systems run the core operations of a company:  Order Management, Financials, Inventory, Manufacturing.​

An ERP houses customer, supplier and employee data, but it does not extend the company’s core operations processes to those 3rd parties.​


Other key business functions missing are: ​

Product Lifecycle Management, Transportation Management, Warehouse Management, Web Sites, e-Commerce, CRM, and Human Capital Management.

What is Digital?

Digital is about more than IT or Technology. Digital is a strategic and cultural approach to business change revolving around data as the core commodity.  ​

It starts with the data required to evaluate the market and should permeate through every layer of the organization.​

Our experiences say:​

  • Intersect “Digital” with company strategy and culture​

  • Align with your customers, suppliers and employees​

  • Adoption will require new mindsets…and maybe new people​
