NexInfo Solutions, Inc: NexGen Methodology–Path to Continuous Improvement, User Adoption and Usability
Arun Cavale, Managing Principal & CEOCIOs typically find Oracle’s products to be stable and scalable with a large talent pool available for them to deploy, maintain and enhance their software. However, one area that most CIOs and companies struggle with is user adoption and optimal use of enterprise software to improve and automate business processes. NexInfo has a successful track record of delivering on this consistently. Aided by the likes of Facebook and LinkedIn, customer expectations for usability is very high. This demand gives rise to challenges such as lack of end-user adoption in multi-software product environments with limited integration, and in managing leading edge Oracle products. With over 16 years of experience and a 100 plus strong team, NexInfo (founded in 1999) deploys Oracle edge products undauntedly, relying on a software agnostic methodology. “Our structured NexGen Methodology evaluates organizational and process maturity, educates key stakeholders, monitors risks closely, and ensures user adoption along with successful technical deployment" says Arun Cavale, Managing Principal and Chief Executive Officer, NexInfo.
NexInfo is structured to deliver consistent results across large and small projects, business process re-engineering as well as complex software deployments and integration projects. It has a governance structure built into every project along with a proven methodology. One of the keys to the project success is the team of solution architects who meticulously conduct the evaluations, define the roadmap and educate key stakeholders.
NexInfo’s NexGen Methodology aids business process owners, managers, andusers in the acceptability of the transformational challenges and cognizing the use of features of new software in business process automation. “The methodology leveraging the NexGen Bluebook has been used by us at several organizations including Motorola, Toshiba, Gilead, Pfizer, 3M Corp and Beckman Coulter to jumpstart their strategic business transformation and software deployment projects to significantly reduce deployment risks,” elaborates Cavale.
Cavale aligns NexInfo’s viewpoint with Oracle’s two-fold perception of the marketplace—technologically and industry-wise. Technologically the push is to move towards Cloud based computing and lower cost infrastructure with engineered systems and easy configurability.
