AOTMP Research—Cimpl Whitepaper

2018-04-18T07:57:16+00:00 April 18th, 2018|Categories: Published, Research Agenda|Tags: |

This Center of Excellence concept is crucial for technology management experts who want to ensure the practice contributes to bottom-line results and are willing to do so by aligning technical, financial and operational objectives. Doing so elevates the technology management group to the status of informed consultant, rather than passive conduit for service delivery. To get there, however, most enterprises need vendors that know the days of audits and optimizations as the main approaches to technology management have come and gone. The goal today is sustainable optimization. This requires organizations to enhance their capability, insight, agility, foresight and support. Founded in 2000, Cimpl offers a telecom, mobility and technology management platform that supports clients’ needs as they arise. That means the company adapts its platform to meet ever-shifting customer requirements – if requested enhancements align with its “Five Pillars” philosophy – the updates are distributed to all clients at once. The Five Pillars guide Cimpl in deciding which changes to implement within the software. When a suggested improvement hits each point (see Figure 1) and moves the company closer to its vision of managing the enterprise digital footprint, Cimpl acts accordingly.
