A platform-agnostic boutique shop, Odysseus implemented Project and Portfolio management point solutions extensively until ServiceNow made its presence felt in 2015 by introducing an automated portfolio management solution as part of its comprehensive IT platform. Marketed under the company’s IT Business Management (ITBM) segment, the solution became an instant hit because of its ease in combining strategic investments and operational workload. Impressed with Odysseus’ track record, ServiceNow onboarded Odysseus as its go-to partner and Design Partner for its ITBM business. This collaboration bore fruit as the duo has been able to turn the corner for many companies in the last few years. “Odysseus creates greater value for your initiatives by enabling change faster, across the enterprise. The ability to plan, prioritize, and track whether the progress is aligned to business objectives goes a long way in ensuring implementation excellence,” says Sander Treur, Cofounder and Owner of the company.
At the outset of client engagement, Odysseus understands their unique business challenges and goals before implementing the solution as a minimum viable product using its proven best practices. As a trusted roadmap partner, the company applies Crawl Walk Run principle for sustainable business outcomes along the journey.
We aid companies in strategic planning and portfolio management through implementation excellence guided by the industry best practices, domain expertise, eye for change, and focus on end-user and senior leadership adoption
In an implementation highlight, a global pharma company engaged Odysseus to implement the ServiceNow ITBM solution for its multilingual business units and user groups. With its specialized team having expert skills and knowledge, Odysseus provided the client with a foundation upon which it could implement and leverage the platform’s commitment on the journey to roadmap their future. For another global oil and gas client, Odysseus supported the platform users with specific capabilities. It was a strategic decision from Global HR and the leadership of the client to facilitate the process of finding the best suitable and motivated people for the job and promoting the essence for personal and career development. As COVID-19 forced governments to impose multiple lockdowns worldwide, several large companies faced challenges in collaborating with their global offices for efficient planning and decision-making. Odysseus helped them with this, as well.
Odysseus takes pride in its name, which stands for a Greek hero who, with his ingenuity, perseverance, and leadership, helped one and all. Driven by such principles, the firm continues to be a symbol of trust in the ServiceNow ITBM expanse.
