At Chameleon, we value the time invested in making a plan. We begin by analyzing the situation, utilizing experience and benchmarking in our discovery process. We want to clearly understand the goals, objectives and desired outcomes for your Mission. We assemble the team of experts and partners, and quantify the measurement tools used to guide our journey. We look deeply at the whole picture, applying our broad technical expertise in endeavoring to understand the interplay of connected environmental factors that might affect your success metrics, and prepare a plan to execute against those items.
Our strategic advisory services are designed to help you plan for the future, lead, and transform your IT organization’s IT mission-critical needs. Using design thinking, and iterative solution building, we can help identify answers to complex problems by working quickly through initial requirements, creating prototypes, integrating user feedback, and arriving at the specifications set that will meet the project objectives.

Using Solutions and Technology for the Heavy Lifting
Part of Innovation is Optimization – reassessing what works, what does’t, and what needs to happen to get the job done. Work and process flows are foundational to the way an organization works, and at some point, those process flows were created because they made the most sense, used the resources available most efficiently, and created the best outcome. Digital Transformation has challenged us to not only reconsider the tools and work flows in place, it fundamentally asks us to consider the entire business process to ensure that it is meeting the needs of current demands and placing the organization in an optimal position to meet the future. This applies to people, processes and materials. In the context of IT, it includes workflows, systems, hardware, data storage and business intelligence.
Chameleon provides guidance to organizations in their quest towards innovation and digital transformation by using a 5 phase Business Model Maturity path. After assessing the organization’s goals and current circumstance, it will look at where the organization is at present and decide which phase is the appropriate starting point. A key trigger in this initial assessment is to look at where operational inefficiencies exist and where the team is/has become aware of of them.
Chameleon then engages to create and align the process model, and combines optimization techniques with automation across the enterprise to ensure goal-driven processes and enterprise valuation control. The goal is to create an Agile business structure that supports and drives innovation, creates a workflow that is aligned with the business model needs, increases efficiencies and lower costs.
