Managed complexity

Complexity is one of the most critical challenges for a successful business. Our world is in a continuous change. Software technology and IT systems have an even higher change rate. This leads to massive cost, which has again an impact on the business, as money is missing for innovation. IDC Analyst Matt Eastwood stated, that on average, more than 70% of IT budgets are spent on operations and maintenance. One can say that IT is the weakest developed technology. The quality is incredibly low due to massive complexity. Today’s approaches address this challenge by adding even more complexity. This is not only visible in the above mentioned cost but also by the increased overload and burn out health problems of unsatisfied personnel. We recognize that as a huge wake up call and a tremendous cost reduction potential.

Complexity management

Reducing complexity is key for tremendous cost savings. We consider complexity in our everyday decisions. We are skeptical of using so called software platforms, as it is one of the main sources of complexity. The original idea behind software platforms was great, benefit trough reusable software and economies of scale. Today’s reality is that most of the platform vendors ran into the complexity trap, platforms are complex and expensive to maintain. Our strength is to bring your requirements down to the essence of what you really need.
