Digital technologies disrupting business as usual

A flood of new digital applications and technologies is disrupting business as usual for financial services companies. In innovative ways, every day, these technologies are being employed to:

  • Shift the baseline for competition
  • Extract deeper insight into customers and their behaviours
  • Empower customers by enabling them to interact on their terms
  • Reduce transaction costs

Are you ready?

The critical business question for financial services companies now is beyond embracing digital. It’s about when to use it, which technologies to choose and how to do more with less. Given those criteria, the critical questions for CIOs and CTOs are increasingly related to readiness:

  • Is my organisation prepared to deploy and support?
  • If not, what are the alternatives and how do they compare in terms of timeframes and cost?

Digital Readiness Assessment

With readiness assessment, Capgemini helps CIOs and CTOs understand, plan for and manage their firm’s Digital Transformation journey. It is set in the context of the digital strategy that links business priorities with the digital technology opportunities. The assessment can be applied to a specific digital opportunity or a portfolio of potential opportunities, or used as a means of anticipating and planning for the broader capability requirements of a digital transformation strategy.

Guided by our Technovision, we help firms clarify and translate their digital aspirations into the fundamental capabilities they will need to deliver, maintain, and support their digital portfolio. This allows us to assess your firm’s existing capabilities to gauge its readiness to support the strategy:

  • Is the capability in place and ready?
  • If not, what is missing?
  • What alternatives are available to build readiness?

We assess impact across existing technology domains such as, for example, architecture, application development and information security. Our analysis provides the insights and granularity for a practical, business-driven and results-oriented path to digital readiness.
