Some of our clients
It all starts with a future-proof Digital roadmap
A strategy focusses on how your organisation will achieve its mission. We draw a digital roadmap that describes how the use of information and digital technology will be crucial in achieving your goals.
We recommend opportunities that information and technology can provide, and indicate the threats it may create. We work with you on a realistic digital strategy and roadmap that will lead to improved products & services, enhanced cost control and increased revenue.
Reducing costs and investing in what really matters
We focus on reducing fixed costs and shifting investments towards more innovative initiatives that offer real business value.
We analyse your technology spending and indicate how means can be pushed towards more strategic and innovative initiatives rather than to infrastructure and transactional systems.
We categorize your costs into asset classes to ensure these get managed in a more cost conscious and optimal way. We also help organisations to increasingly opt for cloud solutions, moving from fixed costs to variable pay-per-use costs, whilst avoiding high customisation efforts.
Introducing an optimal technology mix
Innovation has become a main driver for growth and should be part of every organisation’s DNA, putting emerging technologies on the radar in a constant search for innovating products and services.
We design your digital ecosystem that integrates the digital capabilities that are required to differentiate your services into the market and avoid their commoditisation. Different technology options are addressed and a smart use of the latest cloud solutions avoids that much effort is put into customisation.
Proposing team structures that align with your needs

Drivers for M&A success
Mergers and Acquisitions
A 360° due diligence of the IT organisation
Planning a merger or acquisition? A thorough due diligence is at hand but unfortunately IT is often barely part of the due diligence that precedes it. Not seldom, challenges with integration become apparent only after the M&A has been finalised. Therefore, it is strongly advocated that IT is included in the due diligence from the start as this can avoid surprises surfacing at a later stage.
Xperian’s due diligence covers:
How to unite the IT and digital strategies of the different organisational entities that are about to merge.
The people that are part of the respective organizations with their skills and how these match with the organisation that is envisaged.
A joint operating model when organizations have merged, in terms of capabilities and processes.
The optimal technology mix that is geared for the future and maximally facilitates and even enforces a company’s strategy.
The cost structure and optimisations that can be expected from a potential merger.
