Title : IT Infrastructure Assessment and Roadmap for a Diversified Auto Major
Client and client needs : The client is in a diversified business ranging from automotive dealership, rent-a-vehicle, leasing & financing. The client business has both retail and wholesale components, and is expanding rapidly across the region. The client has IT as a shared service and is on the verge of a major transformation. During this transformation, the client wanted to get their core infrastructure in the right alignment to be able to do the leap in the right size.
Solution : Elite worked with the client to create an IT Plan for 3 – 5 years. Elite studied the various facets of the client business and came up with the requirements that needed to be met. These requirements were further aligned to expansion plans, state of the art technology, training and skill requirements.
Benefits : The client now got a structured plan for their IT which encompassed people skill upgrades, technology, and a roadmap for process improvement – thereby resulting in an all round scenario. The client now has an accepted plan with management for setting up a defined capex budget with the required return on investments scoped out and mapped with the business requirements.
