Strategy

Commercial & technical strategy

Be prepared: use our independent experience to develop robust strategies and technology plans

  • Our senior staff use their expertise and experience to guide your business, and help your teams develop robust strategies to ensure you are ready, and can respond flexibly to whatever the future brings.
    • Commercial strategy: use our independent, vendor-agnostic staff to assess options and provide your teams with a balanced view. The Digis Squared team’s deep experience of working on complex multi-vendor and multi-technology implementations across different regions, means that they have been involved in untangling and fixing many sub-optimal projects – use that knowledge to your advantage! In addition to commercial strategy development, we can guide you in vendor short-listing, run or assist RFPs and live trials, and manage or arbitrate existing contracts.
    • Technology strategy: operators and enterprises use our team to provide independent, vendor agnostic expertise to develop technical and technology strategies to address your ambitions and resolve complex situations. We can provide an assessment of your current architecture and capability, identify opportunities and options for enhancement, and guidance on what to be avoid or be wary of during implementation. We’ll also help you to assess which actions are necessary to create room to enable that additional spend.
    • Technology sunset: our experts can guide your teams in developing strategies to manage technology migrations, as old technologies retire into the sunset and new ones rise to take their place. Develop clear plans to ensure that legacy technologies are managed-out before regulatory licenses end or they become uneconomical, and develop the technical implementation plans to smoothly migrate across to new more efficient technologies.
