Case Prompt

Let’s say we’re working with a large Tech company (i.e. FB, Apple, Microsoft etc.). They are interested in getting into the low-code iBPMS space. This is a space where pseudo-code is used to deploy large-scale process-based IT applications rapidly (in months, not years).

In particular, they’re looking at a company called Roma, which is one of the leaders in the space.

What are your thoughts here?

You can clarify the following (if asked)

  1. iBPMS  - Intelligent business process management suites. Think SAP for example. They are IT systems that take users through business processes.
  2. The business model of these Tech firms is primarily to find ways to integrate diverse offerings/capabilities to build better products and ecosystems.  Therefore, technical synergies are important here.
  3. The market is fairly competitive with about a dozen players.
  4. Roma is a market leader in this space, vying for 1st against 2 competitors. The top 3 dominate the market.

PHASE 1 - INITIAL FRAMEWORK

PHASE 2 - MARKET

The candidate should, naturally, proceed with the biggest question: Is this a market we even want to be involved in?

PHASE 3 - ROMA

The candidate should then recognize that the next order of business is to evaluate the company itself.

PHASE 4 - SYNERGIES

At this point in the case, the candidate’s brainstorming abilities, as well as real-world IT knowledge, are to be truly tested.

PHASE 5 - TECHNICAL INTEGRATION CHALLENGES/RISKS
