The rapidly changing nature of the modern business world demands flexibility and agility. Spending time and money for lengthy implementation projects and server capacity is no longer effective. For that reason, more and more companies are moving parts of their business to the cloud. As a consequence, IT infrastructures are getting more and more complex. New operation models that enable a close collaboration of IT department, SAP Services, and service providers are needed.

Becoming aware of your status quo is a good start to keep an overview and to manage IT services successfully over the long term. Get to know the complexity index of your IT infrastructure now and learn how NTT DATA Business Solutions Global Managed Services can help you to increase efficiency, innovation, and agility of your SAP operations.

In order to do so, just follow these 3 steps:

1. Fill Out the IT Complexity Check Tool

The questionnaire for the assessment has been developed based on our long-term experience as a cloud service provider. It covers nine questions about your IT strategy and systems, the daily business of your IT department, and the type and number of external service providers you are working with. Also, the percentage share of SAP software and cloud solutions in your organization is requested. But don’t worry, if you are in charge of IT operations you will be able to answer all the questions in less than five minutes. If you cannot provide specifics for some of the questions, simply try to give a realistic estimate.

2. Become Aware of Your IT Complexity Index

Each IT department is different. They do, however, face the same challenges. After submission of the form, your complexity index will be indicated. It can range from 0 to 100 points and identifies opportunities for optimization, as well as suggestions for next steps. Let’s give you a brief insight:

  • 0 to 20 points: Your IT is already well organised.
  • 21 to 40 points: In good shape – possibility for optimisation.
  • 41 to 60 points: Now is the time to decide on the future of your IT department.
  • 61 to 80 points: Your IT department has too much on its plate.
  • 81 to 100 points: Your IT department requires immediate support.
