We advocate an integrated and collaborative approach working with our clients by aligning the right metrics and linking the behaviors and activities of the workforce based on the metrics required for your business. Our experienced project team will provide new insights by accelerating solution delivery and optimize the often costly “discovery” processes.

Infogility’s Assessment Service
One of the first steps in undertaking an EPM/BPC implementation is to assess the readiness of your organization for implementation. As the leaders in SAP EMP/BPC and finance transformation, our experts have developed a comprehensive process to help you answer your question and to define your roadmap and business case with regards to defining your implementation strategy and requirements.

Infogility’s Implementation Methodology

Our methodology is based on best practices, and we build your solution based on the target state defined in our assessment process. We utilize our experiences and our methodology with pre-packaged content.

Since the major difference between individual customers should mostly be data and master data, those are the only real areas where a current state analysis is performed – the ‘how’ or ‘why’ regarding the current system is mostly disregarded in favor of the standardized solution’s processes to provide our client with an integrated and optimized solution.

The EPM systems are typically very flexible with many tools, utilities, and simplified scripting functions, that often do not require programming to satisfy these different needs by allowing for the creation of a custom solution. Infogility’s methodology analyses only the GAPs between the standardized process and the requirement to help define what does/does not work for the customer, and explains the pros/cons and likes/dislikes about the existing system to ensure prior benefits are carried forward and limitations are avoided.
