TOM

Axxsys takes a top-down approach converting management visions to sustainable solutions. Each client is unique, but we leverage our experience, Axxelerators and  proven methodology when working with clients on defining the business and technology strategy. At the heart of our strategic services is our Target Operating Model (TOM) framework where we assist our clients in defining the high-level blueprint describing organisation, operational processes and technology. The aim is to allow the client to understand how people, processes and technology creates value and how to redesign the operating model to optimise the business.

The TOM helps the firm to achieve its strategic vision, serving as the road map and reference framework to manage the change programme, helping to set direction, track progress and ensure that any changes and initiatives are aligned with the overall strategy.

Axxsys Target Operating Model Service is offered across the industry including Asset Management, Wealth Management, Insurance companies, Pension Funds and Capital Markets.

Data Strategy

The financial industry is a data-driven business where data volumes and data requirements continue to grow exponentially. Across the industry, data is recognised as a strategic asset that can provide competitive advantage. Firms are investing in data and data quality to facilitate good investment decisions, deliver timely and accurate reports to clients, improve operational efficiencies, for regulatory reporting and mitigate risks.

Axxsys Data Strategy Service is offered across the industry including Asset Management, Wealth Management, Insurance companies, Pension funds and Capital Markets. Our starting point is that the firm’s data strategy should be business-driven and not technology-driven. It must align with the overall strategy, create value for the business and it must be flexible and actionable. In collaboration with the client, we create the Data Blueprint comprising Data Governance, Data Architecture, Data Management and Data Delivery.

The Data Strategy Service is based on the use of Axxsys Axxelerators™, including Axxsys standard data strategy methodology, guidelines and templates.

Technology Strategy

Technology Strategy

Across the industry, new regulatory pressures and evolving business models are putting pressure on the IT organisations to both increase efficiency and support innovation and the rapidly evolving business strategies. Potentially one of the greatest areas of opportunity for any financial firm is the alignment of the technology strategy and architecture with the operating model and business needs. The technology strategy and IT operating model should be key components of the firm’s Target Operating Model.

The service is offered across the industry including Asset Management, Wealth Management, Insurance Companies, Pension funds and Capital Markets. We work with the client to create a Technology Blueprint which will set the future direction for the IT function for the key IT areas, such as infrastructure, application, integration, service, innovation and sourcing strategy.

By leveraging Axxsys Axxelerators™ and our business and technology expertise, we can help our client’s ensure their technology strategy will meet the future needs for an agile, comprehensive, value-creating, cost-efficient and solid IT-platform.

Upgrades

Axxsys Consulting has developed an Upgrade Service, which helps our clients to realise the benefits from the upgrade, with minimum effort and cost. This product can save your business large amounts of time and resources.

Learn more

Upgrades

Most software solutions mandate an upgrade. These upgrades consume staff and systems resources which can block for other value adding projects. Axxsys’ Upgrade Service helps our clients to be more efficient and with less dependencies on key people and business users involvement.

The first time the process is used, benefits are gained by having a better understanding of the way the system is used in a business context. This will lead to better testing coverage, reduce unnecessary testing and provide justification on why each test case is implemented.

The long-term benefits of Axxsys Upgrade Service is the continuity it creates, since our clients don’t have to start from scratch at every upgrade. Test cases may be re-used in future testing, and technology and business users can utilise the same set of test cases. All test cases are based on scenarios previously processed by the client.

Benefits by using Axxsys’ Upgrade Service:

  • You will lower the cost and time of upgrades
  • Achieving sign-off is easy as the justification for the testing is defined and transparent
  • Axxsys’ approach can be tailored to the clients needs
  • Independent consultancy providing upgrade service
