Research Agenda

Digital Enterprise-as-a-System

Organizations must prepare to adopt a new structure that OrionX calls Enterprise-as-a-System.

In this model, a digital mirror image of an organization fuses applications, data, and business processes, and runs on an IT infrastructure that is known to scale efficiently.

How do you become, or serve, such an organization?

The OrionX Research agenda is to probe and define best practices to do so.

Trends are Opportunities and Threats

Simply put, there are too many important technology trends.

IoT, 5G, Cloud, AI, HPC, Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, Smart Contracts, Cybersecurity, and Quantum Computing are all critical. And the list goes on.

Each of these trends can be a big opportunity, or a serious threat to your business.

It’s too much risk to ignore them. But tracking them is hard and scattered.

Can You Wait?

Good question! While it is clear that these mega trends will impact your business sooner or later, and one way or another, the urgency and force with which to respond is different for different organizations. 

Trusted for its judgement and insightful simplicity, and with a track record of “calling it”, OrionX brings its deep science and years of applied market experience to get to help you decide.

OrionX can boil it down to what you need to know and map it to your organization’s unique profile.

Coverage

Multi-disciplinary. Business Impact.

We work with clients on the impact of Digital Transformation (DX) on them, their customers, and their messages. Generally, they want to track, in one place, trends like IoT, 5G, AI, Blockchain, and Quantum Computing. And they want to know what these trends mean, how they affect each other, and when they demand action, and how to formulate and execute an effective plan.

If that describes you, we can help.

Methodology

Data Model and Process

Whether tactical or strategic, bold or conservative, focused on now or the future, customers’ evaluation and adoption of technologies is a complex process. A typical RFP makes this evident.

Following the proven OrionX strategy model, the Constellation process collects and organizes data in three categories: market, customer, and product. The data is analyzed to identify salient points which are synthesized into the coherent insights necessary for effective implementation, with a recognition that implementation hinges on effective engagement and change management.

Research Reports and Advisory Briefs

The OrionX Constellation Research covers five Es:

  • Events: industry milestones
  • Evolution: historical view of a segment
  • Environment: main vendors in a market
  • Evaluation: customer decision criteria
  • Excellence: how vendors score

The OrionX Constellation Advisory briefs assess technology trends and are formatted for fast “bottom-line” consumption. This is the sixth E:

  • Envision: how trends score
Research

Decision Tools

The OrionX Constellation methodology includes Decision Tools for evaluating trends and technologies. In each case, six parameters are assessed to capture customers’ decision process in a way that is realistic but not too complex. Each of the six parameters is scored from zero to ten. There are two parameters in each category which are averaged to produce a single score for that category.

Technology Decision Tool:
  • Market: Presence, Trends
  • Customer: Needs, Readiness
  • Product: Capabilities, Roadmap

Trend Decision Tool:
  • Market: Validity, Maturity
  • Customer: Relevance, Urgency
  • Product: Impact, Cost
