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 digitalisation roadmap that will lead to better products & services, enhanced cost control and increased revenue.
Proposing team structures that align with your needs
New types of teams, from cross-collaborative over ad-hoc to self-steering, are envisaged for increasing flexibility and ability to respond swiftly to sudden industry changes.
We look at peoples skills, expertise and strengths to optimize teams and indicate which project-based groups should be formed to achieve objectives and create the dynamic that is required to respond to fast changing situations.
Reducing costs and investing in what really matters
We focus on reducing fixed costs and shift investments towards more innovative initiatives that offer real value.
We analyse your IT spending and indicate how more means can be pushed towards strategic and innovative projects and less to infrastructure and transactional systems.
We categorize your IT costs into different asset classes to ensure these get managed in a more cost conscious and optimal way. We help organisations to increasingly opt for cloud solutions, moving from fixed costs to variable pay-per-use costs.
Introducing an optimal technology mix
Innovation has become a main driver for growth and should be part of an organisation’s DNA, putting emerging technologies on the radar in a constant search for innovating products and services.
We integrate your IT applications with the latest cloud tools into a digital ecosystem that is less complex to manage, costs less and offers better results.
One-year-long expert advice
A continuous lifeline for advice and assistance, year in, year out
Our unique advice-as-a-service will unburden you thanks to continuous expert advice at a fixed yearly fee. Xperian’s experts cover a wide range of IT domains and assist in your day-to-day challenges, year in, year out.
We are an independent advisor, not linked to any vendor and strongly believe in building a long-term partnership in which you can entrust us with the most delicate IT matters.
Drivers for M&A success
Mergers and Acquisitions
A 360° due diligence of the IT organisation
Planning a merger or acquisition? Merging IT organisations? A thorough due diligence is at hand but unfortunately IT is often not or barely part of the due diligence that precedes it. Not seldom, challenges with integration only become apparent 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 from surfacing at a later stage.
Xperian’s IT 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.
