« sE = MC² » (social) Enterprise = Mobility, Collaboration & Cloud
In the 21st century, organisations all over the world – both big and small – need to adapt themselves to the rapidly changing requirements and landscapes of their clients and collaborators. In this regard, a clear methodology comprising of the right mix of different dimensions – virtualised platforms, mobility processes and collaborative methods – is key to achieving success and sustaining it. Some of the key dimensions include: mobility of workforce, open collaboration, social media adoption, migration to cloud computing environment, as well as handling big data and moving to service oriented architectures.
This is the first article in a series describing an all-encompassing methodology that unites these dimensions seamlessly. In subsequent articles it will be described, how to apply the methodology for designing the Strategy + Implementation for 3 types of business scenarios namely;
- Cost optimisation scenario
- Revenue growth scenario
- Innovation scenario
In businesses, the real-life scenario is generally a mix of one or more of the above scenarios. It will be shown with concrete examples, how the methodology itself provides clear guidelines for the right implementation approach to be adopted in each scenario. First, the need for differentiation as a social enterprise, is explained.
