Operational excellence

Operational excellence focuses on the optimisation of business processes and systems to achieve better results. The outcome? Increased efficiency, reduced waste and costs, faster growth, improved quality, and greater customer satisfaction.

But next-generation operational excellence goes beyond doing things well. It’s about creating a consistent way of working to achieve a common purpose across an organisation. Operationally excellent organisations tie processes, systems, culture, behaviour, mindset and daily practices together to support the organisation’s very reason for being.

Build the right foundations for excellence

SoftwareOne works side-by-side with you to understand your immediate goals and your larger corporate purpose. We ensure you achieve sustained high performance and efficiency in business processes by integrating digital technologies and strategies. This includes improved workflow automation, data-driven decision-making, and optimised resource utilisation. We look at the big picture and focus on the small details to drive operational excellence. Here’s how we do it:

Cloud Operations

Achieve cloud operational excellence with a post migration plan that ensures you implement governance, security and compliance best practices along with a well-architected framework. Many organisations lack a well-defined security posture and strategy, or haven’t defined policies for infrastructure management, data, access and incident detection. You may also need established processes and procedures to drive efficiency, collaboration and the delivery of software faster with DevOps. SoftwareOne works with you to establish and maintain systems that work for you.

Data Foundations

Operationally excellent organisations use data-driven decision making, rather than guesswork. The SoftwareOne Data Foundations services help you navigate the complexities of transforming into a data-driven business. We unearth the potential of your data, align it with your business goals and develop a practical roadmap towards transformation. This enhances decision making, improves operational efficiency, optimises costs, ensures data governance, and mitigates risk and compliance issues.

Operationally excellent organisations use proactive security risk mitigation and remediation, ensuring confidence in application releases with security gates in place. SoftwareOne helps you establish a zero trust stance that allows for a cascading approach to operational excellence.
