A new approach to Digital enablement

Digital change, at its best, should impact every aspect of how an organisation’s workforce thinks, works and acts in the future.  At CMP, our approach is to blend our change expertise with powerful digital thought leadership linked to pragmatic solutions delivery.

Through CMP's access to domain specialists we either offer the best people to partner in-house teams or provide objective, independent reviews of the ever-increasing array of digital solution options on offer.  Via CMPs’ extensive network of micro-firm and SME based digital solution providers we’re able to uniquely tap into innovations that sit outside of conventional supply.

In digital terms, success is best achieved by rapid testing of the many options now out there, for faster selection and then earlier deployment and delivery of the final choice. CMP’s management services build on our commitment to deliver real outcome benefits, and not just meeting agreed project output.

Planning and Advice you can Trust 

Applications and tools that provide new insights, and advisory reporting to best manage strategic change and performance management for transformation outcome delivery.

Solutions and tools that enable CMP and our clients to better achieve successful change programmes, deliver faster and at lower cost with long term benefit release.

Frameworks, healthchecks, audits and solution design that simplifies the complexity of digital information laws, regulation, compliance and protection across digital technology disruption ahead.

Virtual Chief Officer Capabilities

CMP's Virtual Chief Digital Officer (VCDO) is one of our virtual capability resources, offering part-time executive level expertise at a fraction of the cost of a permanent or interim position.  Essentially, CMP’s VCDO supplements existing capabilities with specific digital leadership capacity to help facilitate greater alignment of needs, implementation planning and minimisation of potential risk, duplication or conflicts.

Because there is no one right answer or solution to building end to end Digital success CMP have developed a ‘Digital Readiness’ audit as part of its VCDO service to support leadership decision making and planning. These audits are the first step towards ensuring successful delivery of digital outcomes which cover;

Business needs and drivers – Why the organisation needs to digitally transform, its objectives, intent and vision;

Culture and people – How do people wish to work for greater effectiveness and;

Technology and tools  – What are the resources and applications that are best able to deliver the organisation's future strategic needs as a whole.

Typical VCDO Measures

Example outcomes would cover:  Commercial control of Shadow IT and Data use (Cloud and SaaS value add); Harnessing of Data sharing within controllable policy frameworks; Building of a digital roadmap and implementation planning that brings people and processes closer together; Testing of assumptions and deliverables against new target operating model and benefits plan;  Execution of full lifecycle data protection and security testing that is aligned to digital working practices and policies.

Cyber Security and SaaS Protection

Information loss and associated security concerns is considered the biggest barrier to migrating from traditional IT estate to cloud based services.  Coupled with the increased risk from hacking and DDoS attacks, the demand for greater freedom to work remotely requires new approaches and solutions to be deployed alongside existing IT led firewall defence practices.

CMP has partnered with leading-edge cyber solution vendors to help address these concerns.  For example working with Elastica, we are able to address information governance concerns by analysing every employee’s use of cloud and summarising the associated risks and compliance changes required to stay on the right side of the law and satisfy accepted, ethical standards. 

Elastica’s Cloud Threat Labs (CTL) knowledge base helps inform and educate end users about risks and embed better cyber practices at every level, protecting all employees and customers. 

CTL continually works across the global security industry to detect new threats but also investigate risks residing in publicly shared data within various SaaS applications such as Google Drive, Box, Office 365, and Dropbox.

 

Advisory and Assurance Services

CMP continues to build knowledge bases and best digital practices developed through our real life experiences and from across our Associate network.  CMP then formulate this IP into ‘soft’ tools or methods that can be shared and used in the delivery of programmes for all our clients.  These services can be quickly tailored to fit each environment or bespoke development can be provided to meet specialised capabilities for;

Insight tools: Building greater understanding of risks and challenges of the system and processes being transformed – where we are and where we need to be

Delivery solutions: Building faster response to change needs with increased operational performance and output – specialist tools and applications

Simplicity of working:  Creating a culture and cost shift through use of digital technologies and services – enabling more dynamic, agile working and improving productivity
