In a changing world, organizations have to adapt and technology enables success. Key to this response is how businesses and organizations leverage technology to their advantage to support planning, operations, innovation, compliance and growth. Stellar is an independent consulting firm experienced in defining a strategic vision for the organization and in providing an in-depth, unbiased, third-party view of how the organization can leverage its existing resources with some additional funding to adopt technology-based solutions that generate measurable outcomes. By identifying and implementing winning choices that address the organization's most significant strategic issues, Stellar teams with our clients to drive change and deliver results for business and government leaders every day.
Success comes from effective planning, rigorous implementation that is customized and optimized for the organization. Data is often the best focus for enabling change and transforming data into actionable information is critical to an organization's success. Stellar works with organizations to review mission, roles, responsibilities, operations, process, workflows, stake-holders, resources, challenges and opportunities to develop and integrate the vision for success with a phased implementation plan and the leadership and hands on effort to get there.
No two businesses or organizations are alike and so too there is no one 'cookie cutter' way to solve the challenges brought bare in delivering more with less. It all comes down to return on investment (ROI). The technology and systems in place may individually function well but not together. Alternatively the need is to upgrade existing or add new IT systems and services. The problem is - where to start. Stellar is adept in evaluating existing technology and systems, performing gap analysis, and providing practical value based solutions including implementation of a wide range of powerful and enabling technology-based solutions that unleash the capabilities of existing systems . Stellar is both product and vendor agnostic so we recommend the best value solution. Stellar provides the road map and sees the effort through to successful completion. Stellar gets IT done.
Change is not always welcome or well received. Often projects are cancelled, not due to issues with the technology solution, but due to the lack of acceptance by the people that will use the technology once the project is complete. That is why every Stellar project incorporates organizational change management (OCM). When a business or an organization ventures forward with a new vision the challenge is to overcome resistance. Stellar understands the staff perspective. To overcome potential obstacles Stellar identifies the underlying issues and maps staff concerns to obtain buy-in, dramatically increasing acceptance. The change for people is managed and supported throughout the project implementation.
A business or organization may need assistance in selecting a technology solution, vendor, or product and ensuring a successful implementation. Stellar leverages its extensive network and staff of technical subject matter experts to identify needs, write, compile and release Request for Proposals (RFPs), evaluate the responses, perform bid leveling, conduct shortlist interviews, recommend a vendor and complete the contracting process. Many clients retain Stellar to perform the 'owner's representative' (or owner's rep) services to manage the project and ensure that the vendor delivers as expected. An additional request of clients is to include quality assurance reviews and deliverables acceptance testing. Stellar offers comprehensive services that span the lifecycle of information technology solutions - as businesses and organizations grow and evolve needs change and Stellar gets IT done.
