Overview
Technology is changing the fundamentals of 21st century economic, political, and social interactions on a global scale previously unimagined. The traditional definition of 'enterprise’ now encompasses much more than just a company; it includes every entity that a business impacts and those that affect a company’s operations:
  • Consumers
  • Vendors
  • Partners
  • Employees
  • Investors
  • Competitors
  • Regulators
Tomorrow's enterprise will operate in a truly revolutionized world and for meeting the current market demands, companies will need to think, plan and work differently. Processes and requirements are no longer linear, and technology is enabling a new reality of what can be achieved.
Challenges and opportunities
Business value-driven transformation is essential for companies to strive and thrive in today’s dynamic market.

How we deliver value to your organization

Strategic Planning
Ways to extract actionable insights from the tidal wave of enterprise data
The Strategic Planning practice at UCP focuses on empowering business users with insights that enable them to make more effective decisions by using data, research and analytics tools, frameworks, and more.
Challenges and opportunities
Today's businesses find themselves inundated with data – both structured and unstructured – from multiple internal and external sources. Even so, many businesses are 'data rich' and 'insight poor'. While there are multiple tools available in the market for analytics, research, and data mining, these alone do not adequately serve the needs of business users
Our offerings
At UCP, our experts help extract insights from both quantitative and qualitative data. We provide a range of services, including research, reporting and visualization, data analysis, and advanced analytics services.

Our key enablers that deliver measurable business value for clients are:
  • Differentiated talent, with the capability to collaborate and consult with key business personas in the client organization
  • Proven expertise in tools and frameworks,which enables transformation of data into user-specific and decision-context-specific insights
  • Ability to deliver value on an enterprise scale,enterprise scale, using technology that enables scalable implementation of insights-driven decisions into core business processes
Value AnalysisThis offering focuses on business outcomes. As an extension of the client's business team, we deliver actionable insights based on multiple tools, analytical capabilities and pre-built IP. The analysis also collaborates closely with the technology and business functions of client businesses in the execution of insights that help realize value.
Meaningful Reporting This offering helps develop and deliver scalable reporting and visualization services to support business users across functions — even as the integrated BI roadmap of an organization evolves. It combines the best practices around agile methodology to deliver immediate results. Reporting Factory also standardizes techniques to reduce the number of reports and commercial spreadsheet proliferations, and helps devise innovative approaches to ensure business adoption.

  • Consulting skills that help connect with business users and identify real issues
  • Capabilities that bring the right blend of insights consulting as well as technology skills to deliver highly relevant and scalable solutions
  • The global delivery model — which brings significant benefits across the global footprint of client businesses
Process Transformation
In today's highly competitive global economy, leading enterprises are increasingly seeking ways to reduce operations costs, enhance competitiveness, and increase market share by transforming fundamental business processes and achieve measurable business value.

Such efforts go beyond revenue oriented activities such as sales, marketing, order management, distribution, shipping, and billing. Indeed, the goal is to realize business value from every process, from inventory management to procurement to planning and forecasting. Manufacturing, maintenance, human capital management, and finance, too, are seen as potential targets for value realization. Indeed, value realization is an all-encompassing activity that involves process, people, and technology, often within the scope of a single initiative.

Our Process Transformation services enable such initiatives by leveraging best practice functionality inherent within Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) packages - SAP, Oracle, and other industry-specific technologies. They are backed by the deep industry experience of our practitioners and enhanced by our integrated set of industry-leading program management, value realization, and persona-based design processes and methodologies and tools from planning to delivery and beyond that support execution of such business transformation initiatives.

UCP has helped some of the largest companies in the world achieve measurable business value through process transformation. UCP' Process Transformation Service Offerings include:
  • Program Excellence & PMO
  • ERP Enabled Business Transformation
  • ERP Governance, Risk and Compliance
  • Supply Chain Transformation
  • Customer Operations Transformation
  • Human Capital Management Transformation
  • Finance Transformation
  • Enterprise Content Management
Organizational Transformation
Companies that successfully implement transformative solutions view them as elements of long-term strategy to become more efficient or better serve customers, rather than as stand-alone technical or structural implementations.

Such programs have a far reaching impact on the execution of tasks by managers, internally and externally. To be successful, they need to be viewed as long-term change efforts, which over time are woven into the company's processes, systems, and work practices.

Our Organizational Transformation services address the human elements of such programs to ensure two overarching results: benefits realization and business continuity.

During a project lifecycle, the change plan addresses the following three key questions:
  • How do we get people to adopt the change introduced by the transformation?
  • How can managers be held accountable for the expected transformation results?
  • How can required performance levels be ensured?
UCP works with clients to develop change programs that are proactive, managed-approach to prepare and motivate managers to adopt specific processes, structural and system changes. A completely integrated approach and plan is necessary as a shortfall in any area can derail the program, especially, since a major reason for transformation initiative failure lies with people, leadership and culture.
Information Transformation
Business intelligence, enterprise performance management and IT strategy
Organizational Transformation
Our global consultants with specific domain expertise help enterprises transform their business with strategies aligned to the specific needs of their industry and unique organizational requirements.

Our winning strategies deliver business value by improving efficiencies, increasing agility, infusing flexibility and reducing costs by leveraging a range of UCP Management Consulting services.

Digital technologies are transforming our world – not just the way we communicate, collaborate, and shop, but also the way we experience life. While the application of these technologies has been evolving for more than 30 years, in the previous 15 years or so we have seen them coalesce around three mega-trends that are causing a tectonic shift in the way we interact:
  • Sociality: The ability to engage in open interactions with more people in different environments. This is the ability to communicate, collaborate, teach, learn, debate, praise, and criticize, in public or private, involving one person or many people in a community that can be as small as across the table or as large as the entire planet.
  • Ubiquity:The pervasiveness of interaction mechanisms in both time and space; the ability to interact at any time, any place, by any medium one chooses – explicitly or implicitly.
  • Knowledge:The ability to automatically aggregate data collected from social and ubiquitous interactions, along with data explicitly provided by community members, to understand members’ behaviors, preferences, propensities, the trends among and between them, and to draw conclusions from these that can be used to benefit both the community members and companies that serve them.

    UCP Digital Transformation services help companies leverage these three mega-trends to create value for their customers and shareholders. Our consultants excel in assisting your digital journey – just as they have done for leading retailers in the last three years.

Cloud adoption is a complex process and the multiplicity of available options has led to confusion over how to embark on a viable Cloud Journey. IT and business teams follow different approaches to Cloud adoption. An IT team's primary challenge is to improve efficiency by building and automating infrastructure without compromising on security and regulatory compliance needs. The business team, on the other hand, would prefer to adopt the Cloud quickly to launch innovative business systems and maximize business value. There is a need for a comprehensive set of Cloud service offerings to reconcile these varied approaches to Cloud adoption.
Need for a Cloud Ecosystem Integrator
As companies commence their Cloud adoption journey, they are confronted with several providers, who specialize in infrastructure, platform, and applications. Bringing them together to suit business needs appears to be a daunting task. The lack of single point of accountability, unclear SLAs, multiple pricing models and contracts pose challenges for enterprises looking to get on the Cloud. Thus, adoption initiatives become time consuming and challenging and hence, do not deliver the right business value.

Enterprises need a proven Cloud Ecosystem Integrator as their navigator on the Cloud Journey. A Cloud Ecosystem Integrator takes complete lifecycle ownership of an enterprise's Cloud initiative providing the convenience of single point accountability and amplifying business outcomes. UCP' vision is to deliver a trusted Cloud ecosystem. Our offerings that address all aspects of Cloud adoption include:

View all Services and Solutions
CEOs are increasingly looking at Sustainability as one of the most important challenges facing their business and also as an opportunity to build competitive advantage. In the next few years, companies will grapple with the execution challenges of meeting Sustainability goals. Successful execution of complex Sustainability initiatives will have a profound transformational impact and will influence the entire ecosystem including clients, employees, partners, suppliers, local communities and society at large.
UCP focuses on helping clients in building key dimensions:
  • Social Contract

    Addresses the need for businesses to be granted an implicit license by key stakeholders to conduct their business in a transparent and a sustainable manner. This enhances brand value and reputation based on real initiatives that make a real impact on environment, social and economic issues

  • Resource Intensity

    Seeks ways to do more with less, conserving precious natural resources, eliminating waste, reusing/ recycling raw materials and finding suitable substitutes. These include achieving energy efficiency across the enterprise, lowering CO2 emissions to meet emerging regulations as well as lowering cost and improving efficiency

  • Green Innovation

    Addresses issues around skill sets, innovation and collaboration frameworks, partnerships and alliances, co-creation, research and analytics. Outcomes include building new products and services for the Sustainability market, thereby creating new engines for growth and profits.

Challenges
  • Complexity and transformative nature of enterprise-wide Sustainability initiatives: Successful Sustainability initiatives demand an intimate understanding of the business, Sustainability goals and metrics to measure success, enterprise data models, enterprise technology architecture and footprint, effective communications, program and change management, and executive sponsorship
  • Skill scarcity: There is a scarcity of experienced Sustainability consultants in the areas of carbon management, Sustainability reporting, green IT, energy efficiency, corporate social responsibility and related areas.
  • Organizational and behavioral change: Most Sustainability initiatives need to percolate deep into organizational processes. This will require significant employee engagement, change management, education and training efforts.
  • Budgets: Organizations need to aggressively make investments in their Sustainability initiatives while constantly driving ways to lower the cost of ownership and establish clear ROI.
Opportunities
  • Align Sustainability with the organization’s core strategy and values to ensure that it is a guiding principle in all initiatives.
  • Build your brand and reputation around Sustainability and improve engagement with your employees, customers, investors, suppliers and other stakeholders.
  • Tap new markets, customer segments and revenue streams through innovative new products and services that are inspired by your Sustainability goals.
  • Manage regulatory compliance needs and risks arising from energy and resources price / supply volatility.
