37% of projects are at risk of failure.* Frankly, 37% understates the real issue. Programs that don’t deliver on schedule or budget and that miss the value mark? Exponential.
- Failed attempts at digital and business transformation?
- Turn-around team not delivering?
- Need to quickly respond to market demands AND reduce the total lifecycle cost of technology?
State DMV Legacy IT Program Turnaround – After 8 years of failed attempts…
Silver Tree Services was brought in to turnaround a state’s DMV legacy IT program after 8 years of failed attempts. The system was staggeringly complex: 3.5 million lines of code, 40 different databases with 50 years of data, multiple, disparate vendors and various law suits.
Process: Assess, train, design, build, test, deploy, stabilize, maintain and enhance. Integrating our full offering of:
- Portfolio & Program Management
- Business & Technology Transformation
- Program Turnaround & Recovery
- Program & Project Resourcing
Solution: Silver Tree immediately implemented a governance, project management performance reporting and alignment methodology that held the client, technology service providers and third party development team accountable on agreed outcomes. As a result the project was delivered very successfully in less than one year, with all aspects of the DMV supported by a single solution set.
Key? A focus on enhancing the future business needs of the agency by establishing a platform for continued growth by integrating:
- very specialized domain experts
- a rigorous change methodology
- roadmap, business case and success metrics
- business-driven technology
It is not just technology implementation for Silver Tree. You can have a technology success and a business failure. Our focus is on enabling technology to benefit the organization with measurable, full lifecycle benefits.
