Lower the Cost of IT

Reduce the Total Cost of Ownership of the Systems Required to Create and Service Your Products

Challenges Lower_Cost_IT_Challenges_image.jpg

In manufacturing environments today, it’s common to find redundant systems, multiple disconnected data sources and complex, fragile customizations that require excessive support staff and partners. Product and service organizations are challenged with fractured, inefficient processes and information synchronization issues while IT is left with inadequate resources to invest in tomorrow.

These challenges results in higher total cost of ownership due to the breadth of technology skills required to support the systems, personnel and process inefficiencies, manual handoffs, and inadequate user adoption. Over time, these pains felt across the enterprise erode product and service quality, reduce competitiveness, and constrain innovation across products, services and systems.

By consolidating disparate systems and sources of data in order to unite its transforming and growing business, Ingersoll Rand was able to garner millions of dollars in annual savings.


What’s Possible

By consolidating disparate systems and sources of data and increasing process efficiencies and data synchronization, you’ll be able to lower maintenance, training and support costs. These additional resources can be invested in driving innovation and, with an open architecture and standard interfaces, drive increased adoption and greater satisfaction from global users.

Process Improvement Opportunities

Opportunities to lower the cost of IT exist across the landscape of business processes supported by your organization. Transformations across these key business processes commonly generate the greatest opportunity to lower the total cost of ownership of the systems required to create and service your products:

  • Project Management: Plan, execute, monitor, and control complex development efforts and dependencies spread across globally distributed project, product, and technology teams.
  • Change and Configuration Management: Evolve products in an orderly fashion, from concept through retirement.
  • Detailed Development: Define the product design completely, such that it meets requirements and is sufficiently documented for manufacturing.
  • Verification and Validation: Ensure that designs meet performance requirements and are verified through digital or physical means, progressing from components to assemblies, systems, and products.
  • Manufacturing Process Management: Define and manage the manufacturing processes to be used to fabricate parts, to assemble final products, and to perform inspection.
