Digitization Assessment

Home ยป Digitization Assessment

We provide you with an overview of the digitalization of your crisis and event management!

Our society and technology have changed enormously in the past two decades and, due to the Corona pandemic, especially in the past two years. New technologies and digitalization are affecting all areas of our society and economy.

With a digitalization assessment, we help you obtain an overview of the existing systems, develop a vision for the future and, based on a GAP analysis, create a rough concept for implementing the vision for the future.

The aim of the digitalization assessment is to exploit the possibilities of integrating modern tools in order to reduce the process costs of corporate security, leverage potential synergies and increase the transparency and usability of existing data.

Our approach

This assessment is conducted by our experienced experts in crisis, incident, and risk management, information technology and Office 356.

Selected publications on digitization in crisis management

Strategic decision making in the digital age
The Digital Evolution of Crisis Management
The crisis teams become more virtual
Crisis management in the digital age

The following are the goals of our Digitization Assessment:

The assessment in three steps

Survey of the ACTUAL state

Based on the known representation, this first step is to capture the details of the technical systems available today. For this process, we will propose a proven structured approach that covers the core issues of each tool.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Review and evaluation of existing documents
  • Organizational framework (organizational units involved, decision-making structures, competencies of the units)
  • Information acquisition and handling processes used
  • Supporting technical aids (tools) and their technological status in terms of modern implementation
  • Status of the implementation of Office 365 and Teams

This survey should also record the extent to which these conditions exist at headquarters or also at branch offices.

Compilation of the requirements for the design of the future process (target state)

In the next project step, the ideas for the design of the future process flow in the field of security, incident and crisis management should then be gathered. This round should provide an opportunity for those involved in this field of activity to express their ideas for a future process flow.

Based on the ideas expressed so far, these ideas could include the following:

  • Usability in day-to-day security, incident and crisis management
  • Optimization of existing processes and associated process costs through usability for neighboring areas, such as BCM, insurance and risk management, etc.
  • As little training as possible for all persons not directly involved in the process
  • Uniform accessibility for all required documents
  • Use of the entire application without media discontinuity
  • Decentralized usage options
  • Usability on multiple devices

Rough concept

In the next project step, the current status is compared with the target status using an agile approach and compiled as part of the rough concept.

In the rough concept, the essential elements of a future imagined situation are set down. This rough concept will include the following elements:

  • GAP analysis
    • Weakness analysis
    • target / actual comparison
    • Listing of the expected utility values (key performance indicators)
  • Optimization of existing processes, the associated process costs and the specific benefits of the areas involved
  • Project planning to achieve the target state
  • Cost estimation of the individual project steps
  • Determination of the required project resources

The possible steps for implementation are then jointly discussed and, if appicable, decided upon.

In addition to our consulting services, we also offer seminars on risk management, security management, continuity management (BCM), crisis management, crisis communication and information security and data protection
