IT Advice and Strategic Sourcing you can Trust

Digitalization is having a fundamental impact on companies. CIOs are challenged to enable digital business models, automate processes, make optimal use of data, and ensure their organization is more agile than ever. Eraneos is the partner to drive the CIO agenda in designing, implementing, and managing their organization as well as their sourcing and delivery models, from strategy to execution – from enabler to innovator.

IT for the digital era

Information technology is a central and indispensable part of corporate value creation. Cost-efficient and timely provision of the required IT infrastructures and applications as well as the integration of new, innovative technologies requires not only a high level of expertise but also a great deal of experience. 
 
Today’s CIO has significant business responsibility. This not only requires close cooperation with individual departments but also a holistic view of the company and its processes, IT must redefine its role within the company. The necessary transformation of existing structures into the new operating model is demanding. New capabilities and skills must be built up within IT.

Accelerate with sourcing

A well-thought-out sourcing strategy is an important part of the value chain in your company. It should lie at the heart of your “make-or-buy analysis”. By intelligently sourcing, organizations can affect a successful digital transformation, reduce costs, improve efficiency, and accelerate innovation. 
 
Whether you want to move computing power to the cloud, use the most suitable AI platform, outsource development capacity, or insource a distinctive process, a proper sourcing strategy will contribute to the success of your digital transformation. The right sourcing strategy enables you to maximize both your own capacities and the opportunities the market has to offer.
