Defining a tech strategy to support growth

Client summary:

  • A growth stage liens processor with services and products that are key differentiators in the marketplace. 

Situation:

  • Our client made significant capital investments to modernize their proprietary, in-house core platform.  While the core platform was stabilized, similar capital investments were required across other parts of the organization to mature business capabilities and reduce technical debt. 

Complication:

  • Before moving forward with further investments, our client’s advisory board requested an end-to-end technology strategy and vision, assessment of the  tech stack health, and confirmation that the future state systems architecture was secure, compliant, and scalable.

Aberdeen engagement:

  • Aberdeen was contracted to complete the technology assessment and help formulate a technology strategy.  Additionally, Aberdeen was also tasked with developing a forward-looking roadmap to arrive at the target-state.

Outcome:

  • As part of the engagement, Aberdeen was able to:

    • Assess the performance, reliability, security, and scalability of the key software applications

    • Propose a target state application and infrastructure architecture with a rebuild and integration strategy 

    • Develop a prioritized and sequenced roadmap to address gaps and arrive at the target-state, inclusive of build versus buy recommendations and associated costs estimates

    • Develop a future state technology org chart to support the clients technology strategy and vision
