A holistic digital strategy process – and therefore vital

Many companies find it difficult to harness the full power of digitalization for themselves because their strategies are deficient or have already been rendered obsolete by volatile general conditions. Nevertheless, holistic digital transformation remains the most important means by which companies can achieve improvements and remain competitive in the long term. We will be happy to assist you with our comprehensive Digital Strategy Consulting offering:

Digital Strategy Consulting: How we will assist you

As part of our Digital Strategy Consulting services, we analyze the status quo within your company from the perspective of digital transformation – as well as the market environment – in order to identify and evaluate relevant technologies, trends, and competitors. On the basis of this, we develop a digital target image and a road map of projects that are to be initiated. In the context of innovation workshops, our business and technology experts work together with you to devise digital solutions for the individual challenges faced, e.g., on the basis of design thinking.

The LHIND portfolio of Digital Strategy Consulting services encompasses:

  • Digital maturity test: The level of digital maturity is analyzed, which includes benchmarking and a risk analysis.
  • Digital analysis: An internal and external analysis of the company is conducted, including mega-trends, competitors, and relevant technologies.
  • Digital vision and road map: An individual digital vision and a digital target image are developed; a digital project road map is drawn up; and strategies are devised for specific industries (e.g., logistics, travel and transport, and retail), functional areas (e.g., digital sales, digital marketing), or technologies (e.g., IoT, cloud, analytics, AI, blockchain).
  • Digital business model: New business models are developed and implemented (e.g., using the Business Model Canvas or St. Gallen Business Model Navigator tools).
  • Digital touchpoints: New products and services are developed and implemented (e.g., using the design thinking, customer journey mapping, service blueprint methods).
  • Digital processes: Business process are digitalized, optimized, and automated with digital tools (e.g., process mining).

Benefit from LHIND Digital Strategy Consulting:

  • Facilitate agility: Having a sustainable digital strategy allows companies to respond more quickly to changes in the market and successfully master the challenges posed by digitalization.
  • Act with purpose: With the aid of a digital strategy, all digital measures can be geared toward one overarching objective. This makes it possible to focus on strategically relevant projects and minimize bad investments.
  • Avoid digital silos: Silos – and the inefficiencies they bring with them – occur when there is no overarching digital strategy in place and units develop their own approaches. A holistic view is the way to actively counter this problem.
  • Integrate IT and business processes: Holistic digital transformation encourages close cooperation between the IT and business departments, culminating in the optimum integration of technology and business processes.

IT Strategy Consulting provides the basis for modern processes

The IT strategy is the technical foundation on which the digital strategy and digital solutions are built. As part of our IT Strategy Consulting services, we analyze the company’s IT system landscape and conceive a target image to determine the technical direction of the digital strategy. This involves checking existing IT systems in terms of their suitability for digital transformation and, where applicable, planning adjustments or replacements. The necessary measures are defined and prioritized using established methods and tools.

The LHIND portfolio of IT Strategy Consulting services encompasses:

  • IT maturity test: The level of IT maturity is analyzed, which includes benchmarking and a risk analysis.
  • IT analysis: The actual architecture and processes are recorded, and business processes are mapped to IT systems and services.
  • IT vision and road map: The IT vision is devised on the basis of the digital vision and relevant IT projects are identified on the basis of the digital road map.
  • Enterprise architecture management: Architectures are managed, e.g., on the basis of TOGAF and Lean EAM.
  • IT architecture: This involves developing the IT architecture, making/buying playbooks, and carrying out technical due diligence. It also encompasses tailored IT service management using state-of-the-art methods, such as ITIL 4 and IT4IT.
