IT, Innovation and Digital Leaders
Preparing Modern-Day Technology Leaders for a Digitized and Remote Workplace
As firms transition to remote work and digitize their operations to stay relevant in a fiercely competitive market, the role of technology is more important than ever. Intapp Strategic Consulting partners with technology leaders to future-proof their organizations and add value to their businesses.
The acceleration of remote work has forced firms to reimagine the role of technology, specifically how it supports the execution of business strategies and delivers seamless user experiences that help partners and professionals better engage with clients.
Heightened pressure to drive greater value across the client matter lifecycle, coupled with a plethora of innovative technologies to choose from, makes it increasingly difficult for leaders to know where to focus their efforts.
The road to cloud adoption is complex. Leaders often encounter resistance due to challenges integrating cloud and legacy environments, inertia surrounding the traditional IT framework, and requirements for businesses to adapt their ways of working.
New technologies and rapid shifts in business operating models can challenge the ability of IT teams to effectively support the evolving needs of the firm. This requires improvements across processes, organizational structures, service delivery, and governance to deliver the requisite change.
Professional services firms must deploy every available means to differentiate themselves from the competition in today’s market. Understanding how to best leverage their most ubiquitous asset — data — is critical to gaining a competitive edge.
How Intapp Strategic Consulting Can Help You
Digital and Technology Strategy
Build a digital and technology strategy designed for evolving business models to enable differentiating capabilities and drive improved performance.
Technology enables new ways for firms to enhance the provision of services, and further opportunities for IT functions to develop business acumen. We help formulate the right digital and technology strategy for you to facilitate positive change across client experiences, operational processes, and underlying business models, all while enabling your broader strategic operating plan.
Innovative Technologies Optimization
Determine the effectiveness of the innovation strategy across the client matter lifecycle to help meet the evolving needs of both clients and partners.
Aligning innovation to the firm’s broader business and technology strategy will determine how tools can be leveraged to enhance legal services offered to internal and external clients, while future-proofing foundations to keep pace with rapid technological advancements. We support senior leaders in assessing the effectiveness of the innovation strategy to determine which investments should be prioritized.
Cloud Adoption Roadmap Design
Map a clear pathway to cloud adoption to help you remain at the forefront of the industry.
Cloud computing services are revolutionizing the IT landscape and will continue growing exponentially in the years to come. Firms with a razor-sharp focus on navigating the myriad complexities associated with the transition to cloud adoption will be most likely to prosper in an increasingly technology-driven business environment. We collaboratively design a roadmap to outline the key steps to help you execute your cloud strategy and manage the process of business change.
IT Function Operating Model Improvement
Empower the IT function to help cofacilitate strategic discussions.
As technology becomes increasingly paramount, a firm’s ability to execute its business strategy has become dependent upon whether its IT function can grow from a cost center — keeping the lights on — to a strategic business partner. The evolution of leading firms to digitally enabled and data-driven models requires IT teams to have robust leadership, a new mix of skills and responsibilities, a different team structure, and enhanced business processes. We help review your core capabilities to design new ways of working to help you build the IT function of the future.
Data Quality Assessment
Uncover the actionable steps you can take to get clean, compliant, and complete data for everyone in your firm.
In today’s legal landscape, firms are overwhelmed by data, which is increasingly being leveraged to drive critical business decisions. If data quality is poor, decisions will be, too. We assess the hygiene of firm data to inform and design a tailored data-cleansing strategy that maps clear steps to achieving a level of integrity upon which sound business decisions can made.
Data Management and Governance Framework
Manage and govern data — the life blood of your organization — appropriately to instill trust, integrity, and reliability.
Effective data management and governance are key components of improving the accuracy and reliability of information. To enable this result, a multitiered framework predicated on the correct mix of processes, policies, and people is critical. We enhance and design data governance structures by developing control mechanisms that maintain data quality throughout the firm and across the client matter lifecycle.
Common Data Model Creation
Develop a clear view of the data architecture required to support business operations and drive successful outcomes.
To stay competitive and achieve the level of agility needed in the digital marketplace, it’s essential to build consistent business taxonomies to support digital transformation. We help overcome inefficiencies in dealing with information by driving greater alignment with data taxonomies, providing consistent information around clients, matters, sectors, practice groups, and much more.
