Enj facilitates ‘Delivery to Value’. Enj has an inherent flexibility to grow in implementation as the needs of your organization grow. This saves organizations from an almost impossible task of identifying all their existing and future requirements right at the beginning of the automation cycle or live with an incomplete, outdated and a rigid application for the years to come.
In doing this, Enj implementation supports and follows the real life experience of supporting the evolution of solutions as the organization evolves and grows.
One can start small with Enj. Enj allows process-by-process implementation. It enables implementation in manageable chunks of business processes at a time in short and manageable implementation cycles. This lowers the risk of implementation by minimizing the possibility of business dislocations.
You can identify the critical areas of operation that you want to automate first. That would take care of your core business needs. You can check “proof of concept” and measure the efficiency increase. Over the period of time when the core processes stabilize, you can plan for extending the scope of processes as well integration of deployed processes with upstream and downstream processes. This expansion and integration could be in the same functional area or be a cross-functional expansion.
A big benefit of ’Delivery to Value’ - implementing organizations get time to implement and automate processes at a pace that is suited to their specific needs, skills and capabilities. Initial implementations form a nucleus around which the scope of processes implemented on and integrated with Enj increases providing a unified network; it becomes an enterprise wide deployment platform. This makes the learning curve shorter and minimizes risk of disruptions in operations.
Here is an example of how delivery to value plays out. An initial deployment of payroll process that involves complex calculations forms the nucleus of Enj deployment. As this process deployment takes hold, one could expand the deployment to upstream processes like Recruitment & time keeping and downstream processes like Accounts Payable. Further, these processes can be linked to General Ledger to automate the journals. In this manner the back office, HR and GL could be integrated through Enj implementation in a step-by-step fashion.
'Delivery to Value' is further empowered by Enj-Ports – Enj’s integration engine, which helps integration with 3rd party applications.
'Delivery to Value' concept supports a key underlying philosophy of Enj – leverage the existing investment – applications, tools and utilities. This philosophy lowers costs at all stages – i.e. initial investment, design, configuration, deployment and maintenance.
