We conducted a business analysis of the feasibility of modernization for a company specializing in the development of ERP solutions
Our client is a Swiss company specializing in the development and implementation of ERP solutions for various industries including finance, insurance, and healthcare. The system was built over 13 years ago and relied on complex business logic. There was no up-to-date documentation on its architecture and functionality.
To recover lost information, plan the creation of new app features, and ensure the smooth development of its ERP, the customer was looking for a reliable IT partner with experienced business analysts.
Launching a modernization project without a preliminary business analysis could lead to the following risks:
- cost overruns;
- data loss;
- operational disruption;
- security vulnerabilities;
- interoperability issues;
- disruption of business processes, etc.
Modernization is a costly project that is associated with a lot of risks and we would like to get a complete picture of the implementation of this project.
We do not have up-to-date documentation on the architecture and functionality of our ERP system.

With IT consulting, you can better understand whether your project is heading in the right direction. As a result, many serious risks can be avoided.
In the first phase of our work, we deeply analyzed the company’s history, its industry, and its specific objectives. By examining the customer’s goals and aligning our analysis with them, we laid the foundation for a focused and targeted approach.
Then we proceeded to the next stages of the analysis. Our tasks included collection of the necessary data, identification of the key issues, review of the root causes, proposal of solutions, definition of possible risks, and development of an action plan. By following this step-by-step approach, we were able to address the key issues and create actionable strategies that were aligned with the company’s goals. A thorough review of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the company provided us with valuable insights that helped us make informed decisions.
