DETECON Consulting

Is your company less agile than your competitors are? How do you create open interfaces for partners and start-ups? How can you align your project portfolio with corporate strategy goals? How does digitalization influence your processes and IT? What about the Cloud Readiness of your IT architecture? All these questions are typical enterprise-architecture problems.

Each company has an architecture as an organizational logic for business processes and IT systems. Often, however, it prevents more than it benefits. Despite the agreement on the target architecture, many transformation projects fail due to the unclear tailoring of the individual projects. There is a lack of transparency about critical interdependencies and a lack of knowledge about the relationships between company strategy and IT landscape.

EAM not only creates transparency, but also provides methods and processes to enable a common approach to business and IT. The aim is to achieve permanent competitive advantage.

Detecon offers not only a broad, tried-and-tested EAM method portfolio, but also effective, innovative approaches to deal with the challenges of digital transformation. Join with us into a dialogue to identify the relevant fields of action!

Selected excerpts from our consulting portfolio

With the new release SAP S4, many companies face the question "whether" and "how" they should migrate their existing SAP landscape. Many approaches consider a purely technological changeover, thereby missing the chance to improve for the future.

With the S4 Architecture Roadmap, Detecon is developing a business-driven approach that puts a future business model at the center of its focus. From this perspective, the differences to the current business model, and how S4 can support them, are determined. This results in a business-oriented roadmap, supplemented by the technological prerequisites, to achieve a changeover that generates business value.

When companies want to increase the maturity of their enterprise architecture, it is vital to train the architecture management skills of their employees.

For years, Detecon is offering a curriculum that focuses on EAM knowledge building. The core component of the portfolio is the four-day TOGAF® 9.1 training, which is certified by the Open Group. This training prepares the participants for a TOGAF certification and submits a voucher for each exam. An integrated use case illustrates the content of the training, including hands-on exercises with an EAM tool. In addition, a wide range of application and implementation examples from our consulting experience enriches the learning material. Based on this knowledge, we offer one-day specialization trainings covering topics such as "Capability Based Planning" and "Establishment of EA Functions in Organizations".

Sometimes it is not a matter of accomplishing deep knowledge, but of understanding the foundations of architectural work. When departments and IT work together on major transformations, aligning both sides with a common approach and a common language has proven to be a success factor. The one- to two-day TOGAF® overview seminars of Detecon provide precisely these basic principles.

To master the great challenges of digital transformation, it is necessary to establish and develop various digital capabilities (see also Digitaler Navigator). In contrast to "technology" and "processes", the supposedly more interesting and promising dimensions of an ability, the factor "human" continues to receive far less attention in the context of digitalization. As management consultancy, which is particularly concerned with working environments of the future under the keyword Future Work, we have now combined both established consulting approaches and analyzed future digital possibilities for the efficient design of production workplaces under the working title "EAM meets Future Work".

We have developed working environments based on interviews and analyzes for typical occupational fields in seven key areas of production (see detecon-futurework-at-production). As a result, we offer valuable input to production and personnel managers in order to realize efficiency, but also support and relief potentials for individual jobs.

The Internet of Things (IoT) pushes the networking of devices, machines and companies inexorably. The resulting data increasingly contributes to optimization potentials and new business models and is thus becoming a significant production factor. The evaluation of the obtained data is only the beginning. More and more companies are faced with the challenge of how processes can be made predictable with the company's existing database and how plants can be transformed into autonomous, self-optimizing networks.

Companies that want to align their IoT strategy profitably need a holistic approach that accompanies the transformation from vision to technical implementation. In addition to the selection and analysis of the right reference architecture, our experts support the development of potential IoT applications by using our tried and tested business discovery method. In addition, the individual development of the IT architecture and the selection of suitable platforms belong to our range of services.

Digitalization brings companies new challenges and opportunities, such as new products and service components, as well as innovative business and collaborating models. Reliable data is a key success factor here. However, in digital transformation, companies need skills that go far beyond traditional master data management.

Based on our extensive experience with our customers, we have developed a Master Data Management approach that addresses the challenges of digital transformation. We combined our architecture expertise as well as our experience in the field of MDM in a methodological kit. It consists of a procedural model that offers a TOGAF-compatible approach to the specific problem solution, an MDM maturity check, and a training for master data management. For more information please refer to our MDM Flyer.
