Aptitive directed a pharmaceutical company’s technology spin-off from their corporate parent

The Problem

Our client was spinning off from their corporate parent and needed to develop a plan to address problems and opportunities with their current technology. Some problems they were facing included:

  • Existing systems were not giving the executives the data and reports that they needed to drive the business forward
  • Current IT leadership needed help creating the path forward to adopt and implement new technologies and build new systems

Our Solution

Aptitive developed a technology road map to migrate the current technology to a standalone environment. Our team…

  • Built a plan that addressed key risks to customer revenue and product manufacturing, insuring that no impact from the migration would affect short-term business results
  • Planned for four phases of the company’s growth through a series of projects to support the needs of the growing and changing business

The Outcome

Aptitive provided an interim CIO to the client when their manager resigned and led the hiring and transitioning of new IT leadership. Some highlights of our solution included:

  • Migration was completed early, under budget, with no downtime or outages
  • Cost savings from our solution were reinvested to move the organization to new technology and capabilities
  • Client took over managing the work and building the new applications and systems using our technology road map as the guide, working closely with the client staff during the transition
