Navigational Assessment IT Strategy & Roadmap

Most clients choose to engage with enCompass through the framework of our specialized Navigational Assessment process. This service allows our team the opportunity to fully immerse ourselves in a company’s mission and objectives, regulatory requirements and current state of compliance, current challenges, workflows, processes, people, and existing IT environment.

Because each clients’ situation is unique, the focus of the Assessment can be shaped to perform discovery and make recommendations on specific challenges facing the organization. We’ve completed our Navigational Assessment process with a focus on: regulatory compliance, IT staffing and culture, workflows and processes, data management and business intelligence, and other application and infrastructure project initiatives. Oftentimes, the Assessment culminates with a three year IT Roadmap, a tangible action plan to get the client where they want to be.

Discovery

Our comprehensive approach starts with in depth discovery.

Primary data is compiled through actually looking under the “hood” of servers, routers, switches, applications, databases, intelligence systems, written documentation, network topography, policies, and procedures.
A structured questionnaire and interview process provides insight into: workflows, processes, utilization and adoption, IT culture, personnel, skill sets, and business and industry intelligence.

Analysis

Once we’ve gathered all the data necessary to paint a complete picture of the client’s unique situation, we get to work documenting and analyzing our findings. Our skilled team of consultants have the advantage of assessing sticky or complicated situations from a distance just far enough away to provide an unbiased analysis while benchmarking findings to industry and size specific applications.

Mapping

After an in depth discovery and analysis process, we share key findings with the client’s leadership team. We make our recommendations and work closely together to shape the roadmap by which IT initiatives are prioritized.
