Engagement Summary

 FAIR Consulting Group worked with Sigma to help deliver a strategic road-map for their digital transformation. The aim of the project was to take both B2B & B2C commerce architecture and transform it into a B2X, single customer data model. We conducted a discovery and assessment in order to better understand their current framework and architecture. During our engagement, we helped deliver a road-map for their e-commerce program and defined a clear view of the digital initiatives Sigma Healthcare needed to take for a successful digital transformation. Our work delivered a technical framework of activities for over 1-3 months, and we defined a B2X commerce system strategy with a thorough 1-3 year technology road-map.
