What is a Solution Blueprint?
When it comes to new technologies, it seems more productive to skip the planning phase and get right into checking out products. But that’s like building a house without a blueprint. Chances are, it’s not going to end well.
The same goes for business technology. If you want a seamless implementation experience and an end solution that really delivers, you’ll need a Solution Blueprint first.
Think of a solution blueprint as a roadmap for success. More specifically, it’s a detailed action plan for business technology implementation. This plan includes a thorough analysis of your organization’s people, processes, and technologies.
Why do you need a Solution Blueprint?
Here are some of the most common reasons you would need a solution blueprint:
- You are about to start a vendor selection, software implementation, business process redesign, data audit, or software customization project.
- You suffered through a failed implementation and want to re-implement.
- You struggle with user adoption.
- You want better metrics visibility.
- You are migrating to a new platform.
- You have specific or complex platform integration needs.
- You want to consolidate your business processes.

What do you get from Solution Blueprint?
A Bang-Up Implementation or Customization Project
Surprise, surprise: projects are way more likely to succeed with some pre-planning. Post-mortem reports conducted by CSO Insights on business technology implementations show that unsuccessful implementations are the result of selecting technologies before planning for implementation and organizational alignment. A Solution Blueprint will cover these bases for you.
Painless Tech Stack Integrations
No need to worry about retrofitting square pegs into round holes after going live – we will make sure everything is the right shape from the get-go. One of the biggest risk factors of a failed implementation is oversight of integration capabilities, which is why we incorporate a plan for tech stack integration right into the solution blueprint.
