To help companies better align business and IT, Freeborders, Inc., a global provider of consulting, technology and outsourcing solutions to financial services and Internet based businesses, today introduced the Light Enterprise Architecture Framework (LEAF) consulting service. LEAF enables the business and IT to develop a common understanding of how technology can effectively support the business by using capabilities mapping. As a result, companies are able to deliver a consistent customer experience across all channels and more effectively facilitate regulatory efforts. LEAF decreases IT costs by identifying where and why change can and should be made.
The comprehensive LEAF methodology and toolset helps capture essential data to accelerate the planning and requirements analysis of business process transformation, core system renewal and consolidated reporting solution. Specifically, LEAF enables business analysts and developers to capture business requirements and identify the best approach to optimization and integration. By identifying common functions and capabilities, companies can streamline processes across the organization and eliminate redundancies.
“A complex web of legacy silos, disparate systems, redundant functionality and excess capacity often prevents companies from achieving the agility and flexibility needed to respond to market demands,” said Graham Bolton, Executive Vice President, Financial Services Consulting at Freeborders.”LEAF provides a solution by establishing a common framework and language that aligns the business requirements with IT capabilities to achieve tangible business results."
The LEAF offering is part of Freeborders’ IT Strategy Consulting Services. Freeborders provides frameworks that IT organizations can adopt to align IT and business objectives. The frameworks identify best practices and common processes within and between IT functional groups to make IT and business alignment sustainable and scalable.
