What is Business Value Engineering?

Matt Smith, Chief Architect at IFS, discusses the IFS approach to Business Value Engineering in a live interview with theCube.

Business value assessments go digital

We have deep industry expertise and have built value packets which capture the very essence of these industry’s core business processes. During the Digital Business Value Assessment (DBVA), we start with our value packets for the process type you want to focus on—such as manufacture to order—and then perform analysis, mutually, with your team. We capture inputs, controls, outputs, and resources against each process activity, as well as current key performance indicators (KPIs).

The DBVA software works its magic to produce a final business case for change. This business case is yours – you own it. It’s hosted in a secure private cloud instance, which you can log into tweak, validate, and produce reports. It’s a small investment of time—just one day—for potentially big returns. And the whole process is completed virtually.
