Product Description

The Infrastructure and Technology Platforms Capabilities Model encompasses all the functions and components of a typical enterprise technology infrastructure and platforms. Today, hybrid infrastructures – cloud, on-premises, hardware, software, and services – are the norm, and most large companies have complex IT landscapes. The technology infrastructure and core platform capabilities model will help IT leaders gain a holistic perspective of the IT landscape to better plan and manage the transformation and evolution. The Infrastructure and Technology Platforms Capabilities Model comprises ~500 capabilities across three levels.

Today, every business is a technology business – only the difference is the level of investment and intensity. Given the pervasiveness and expansiveness of technology, it is difficult to get one’s arms around the beast. The Technology Infrastructure and Platform Capabilities Model helps IT leaders grasp the overall breadth, depth, scope, and extent of the technologies involved and set out the structure, systems, governance framework, and managerial oversight.

(Note: As the Infrastructure and technology platforms capability map is a digital deliverable, we do not accept returns or issue refunds. So, please read the product description carefully before purchasing.)

Technology Infrastructure and Platforms Transformation:

In the digital era, companies must transform their technology infrastructure and platforms to survive and thrive amidst the rapidly changing business landscape. This transformation is crucial for several reasons:

  1. Enhanced customer experience: Customers expect personalized and seamless experiences across various channels in an increasingly connected world. Adapting technology infrastructure enables companies to understand customer needs better and deliver tailored solutions, thus improving satisfaction and loyalty.
  2. Increased operational efficiency: Upgrading technology infrastructure helps automate manual processes, streamline workflows, and eliminate bottlenecks. This leads to significant cost savings, faster decision-making, and improved overall performance.
  3. Agility and adaptability: A modernized technology platform allows companies to respond rapidly to changing market conditions, customer demands, and competitor actions. With the ability to pivot quickly, organizations can capitalize on new opportunities and stay ahead of the competition.
  4. Data-driven decision-making: Transforming technology infrastructure facilitates efficient data collection, analysis, and visualization. This enables organizations to make informed decisions based on real-time insights, resulting in better business outcomes.
  5. Security and compliance: Cybersecurity threats continually evolve, and regulatory requirements are becoming more stringent. Investing in robust technology infrastructure protects sensitive data and helps maintain compliance with industry standards.
  6. Innovation and growth: An agile technology environment fosters innovation by providing the tools and resources to develop new products, services, and business models. This drives long-term growth and ensures a company’s continued relevance in the market.

Infrastructure and Technology Platforms Capabilities Model:

The Technology Infrastructure and Platform Capabilities include the following formats:

  • An Excel spreadsheet with a grouping of capabilities.
  • A PowerPoint format with the top two levels presented in a nested visualization.
  • A Word document with capabilities in a multilevel list format.
  • Capability KPIs
  • Capability Definitions
  • Plus, bonus files.

What the Infrastructure and Technology Platforms Capabilities Model is NOT: The IT Management Capability Model is NOT a list of all technologies, even though it includes vital technology areas. It does NOT comprise architectural views, and it is not a representation of the complete tech stack. Instead, it is a framework of crucial infrastructure and platform areas and decomposes the technology management value chain activities.

Value and Uses of the Infrastructure and Technology Platforms Capabilities Model

A capabilities map is a fundamental and foundational entity in the business architecture continuum. An Infrastructure and Technology Platforms Capabilities Model encapsulates end-to-end aspects of the IT management functions with a detailed, multilevel capabilities list. It is about managing the business of IT.

There are several benefits of leveraging an Infrastructure and Technology Platforms Capabilities Map:

  • Gain a holistic perspective of what technology infrastructure and platform capabilities are necessary for an enterprise
  • Conduct a maturity assessment of the technology infrastructure and platform and develop a roadmap to achieve the desired state.
  • Create a RACI matrix to assign roles and responsibilities and build accountability.
  • Set up a lightweight governance structure to help oversee and achieve functional excellence.
  • Procure the right tools and technologies to enhance the infrastructure and platform capabilities. (Capstera’s technology infrastructure and platform capabilities map do not provide a vendor list or reviews, but understanding the underlying capabilities helps map them to vendor features.)

Created by technical architects and business architecture domain experts, the technology and platform capabilities model is detailed, in-depth, and conforms to the construct of MECE (mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive).

Product FAQs:

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?

We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.

When can I access my deliverables?

We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.

Where can I access my deliverables?

Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.

Are there any restrictions on Downloads?

Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.

Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?

You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.

Can we talk to you on the phone?

Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.

Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?

Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
