Positive outcomes for our clients

To find out more details please get in touch to discuss further.
Unprecedented agility and capacity to innovate
Transformation is not just about technology: it’s about the way your colleagues work and the experience you deliver to your customers. By integrating the infrastructure and software delivery life cycles, replacing rote tasks with automation and aligning IT service delivery with the business planning cycle, we allow complex enterprises to execute at the speed of start-ups. We free business leaders from long planning cycles, cut lead times from months to hours and massively improve satisfaction with IT performance.
- Acceleration of IT service introduction
- Better interlock between business and IT plans
- Automated full-life cycle service introduction; on premise and in the cloud
Faster time to market
Whether you are focused on improving the speed of infrastructure and access provisioning, the effectiveness of your continuous software delivery capabilities, or the time to onboard new customers Virtual Clarity can quickly accelerate your IT delivery. We have proven time and again in both medium-size and large enterprises that we can cut complexity, speed up delivery and eliminate waste and delay through automation and process realignment. Typical outcomes include:
- Improving time to launch services by 30 to 70 %
- Accelerating change throughput by up to 20x
- Enabling a shift from traumatic weekend releases to multiple releases in a day
Replacing out-of-date employee productivity and workplace systems in headquarters and the branches unlocks significant value across every business process. Modern multichannel platforms for mobile, desktop and productivity cost less to operate and manage, give employees flexibility to work anywhere – and their light footprint greatly lightens the load of mergers and dispositions. Typical outcomes include:
- Large-scale (tens of thousands) migration of employees to modern desktops
- Elimination of costly on-premise infrastructure and legacy processes
- Better workforce flexibility to support modern workplaces and secure integration of partner/supplier staff
Replacing outmoded on-premise infrastructure, whether virtualized or legacy, promises savings from capital expense reduction, automation and disposition of large capital items like data centers and networks. But unless done with a 360 degree view of the business case and a relentless focus on completion, introduction of cloud services and modern SDLC processes can increase costs and complexity. That’s where Virtual Clarity comes in: we give you the perspective and help you drive to realize the benefits. Typical outcomes include:
- Economic Value Management to keep the largest change programs on track and ahead of their promised benefits
- Harvesting the benefits from automation and service improvement across the enterprise
- Rapidly migrating off expensive services and assets and freeing up capital and operating expenses to reinvest in your business
Modern Platform for Enterprise Technology
Other partners bury you in PowerPoint; we bring together public and hybrid infrastructure blueprints with a clear definition of the desired operating models, information security and controls to give even the most established and regulated enterprise the pace and quality of a start-up. Typical outcomes include:
- Modern ‘immutable infrastructure’ platforms that future-proof your new development and legacy modernization initiatives
- Pragmatic operating model changes that deliver the promise of stalled ‘agile’ initiatives and give frustrated developers a springboard to high productivity
- Controls, automation and security by design which replace check-list approaches with real information security improvements
