A breakthrough innovation which transforms the management and delivery of digital projects has won a top prize at the 2017 IDC Digital Transformation Awards.
The Instillery and Fonterra created a digital pipeline service that enables organisations to collaborate with their digital agencies and vendors across the globe.
“The Instillery and Fonterra have won the IDC ANZ Digital Transformation award for showing market leadership in the application of digital technology and processes,” says Annemarie Kikos, research director at IDC Australia. “Their innovation is a great example of how technology, particularly automation, is helping ANZ organisations transform.”
The two organisations have created a multivendor digital project ecosystem that is flexible, scalable and brings standardised project administration, management and development processes, workflow and governance.
In today’s environment organisations can have 20-plus digital projects on the go concurrently. At this scale it’s imperative to effectively and efficiently manage and deliver projects on time and under budget, explains Mike Jenkins, The Instillery founder and CEO.
With our pipeline creation services tool, it takes about 30 minutes to set up a digital project environment. Manually this would take an organisation approximately eight hours
Offering a cloud-based toolset and process, the digital pipeline service simplifies and mitigates business risk by providing a single voice, consistency and uniformity, while reducing costs and accelerating time to market for new digital projects.
Jenkins says huge savings can be made by automating traditionally labour-intensive processes
“With our pipeline creation services tool, it takes about 30 minutes to set up a digital project environment. Manually this would take an organisation approximately eight hours," he says.
“The Pipeline Creation Service has been a gamechanger for us,” says Raf Rasile, GM of digital innovations and solutions at Fonterra, in a statement. “It’s making us as a business, and all of our teams, collaborate better and far more efficiently - as a result we’re getting the work done a lot quicker.
“There’s also a significant financial benefit, a time to value benefit, and for any of the managers here there’s a real stress reduction in terms of being able to use the tools to make their jobs easier. It's really helping us take a far more agile approach to doing business.”
