What CDS Provides
A practical implementation experience that fits your IT environment
CDS provides the following services to successfully deploy a comprehensive process improvement program in your organization:
Current State/Gap Analysis
Helps you understand the “as-is” state of various IT practices, and discovers gaps relative to the desired model/standard. Under Gap Analysis we discover improvement opportunities and recommend corresponding changes.
Process Improvement Planning (PIP)
Our PIP methodology includes 3 key phases:
Strategize: We assess the health of the process improvement by studying various inputs and identifying a process’s desired state with reference to models/standards.
Prioritize: Includes objectives prioritization, identifying quick-wins, evaluating a pilot approach, and outlining plans.
Plan: Based on the output of the two phases above, we draw up tactical plans, which include estimating effort, resources/budgets identification, and drawing up timelines.
We help you develop a Quality Management framework that covers SDLC, IT Project Management, Information Security/Business Continuity Management, IT Controls, Vendor Management, IT Service Management, and related IT processes.
Measurement is the mechanism by which an organization gains insight into its performance. CDS proposes a “Goal-driven Software Measurement Framework” approach to define and deploy the measurement framework that works best in your organization.
Training is a critical element of the deployment phase. At CDS, we educate your trainers to teach required skills and deploy new practices.
We partner with clients in their internal process improvement initiatives to simplify implementation and reduce pain points.
