Digital has become a foundational requirement for virtually every business. Still, many business leaders look to capitalize on digital opportunities only when a specific need arises—without an overarching vision and plan. As a result, corporate digital programs frequently experience friction with enterprise-level strategic alignment. Focusing on devices and a few priority digital applications is not enough. Without planning for a long-term digital transformation, too little thought is given to how digital can enable or enhance significant business capabilities and objectives.
We offer complete end-to-end marketing solutions from creative design to digital production. We provided e-commerce development that has enabled the world’s leading brands to delight their customers. It drove superior marketing performance across full multichannel customer experience.
The ever-present, highly competitive, global business environment forces companies to do more with less. Technology moves so fast that many mid-sized and even large companies cannot keep the same pace and feel overwhelmed.
CBT combines its experience with key partnerships and alliances to bring out the best in Enterprise Applications and deliver results for our clients.
The primary components and features we deliver within a digital strategy include:
Executive-level Digital Strategy – We define your digital strategy in alignment with the enterprise mission, vision, goals and strategic initiatives. We will further assist in evangelizing the digital strategy to ensure top-down alignment and buy-in. This digital strategy becomes a powerful guidepost for digital governance and execution across the organization.
Business Capability Enablement – Whether you want to build mobile applications, drive revenue through ecommerce, or harness new and emerging technologies, we clarify the digital channel development goals by crafting and executing from a digital capability roadmap. Using the digital strategy as the compass, we build a roadmap that is actionable, measurable and tailored to your business needs. Our capability enablement approach benefits the enterprise by:
Providing a comprehensive applications roadmap that demonstrates how digital will be used to “move the needle” in critical measures, on a defined timeline.
Identifying business results and a plan of action to achieve them, as well as supporting technology roadmaps.
Focusing scarce resources on high-value results rather than activities.
Legacy mainframe and minicomputer applications and systems have always been among the most valuable technology resources running mission critical operations. Unfortunately, they are increasingly expensive to maintain and are no longer responsive to the multi-device mobility and data driven demands for business intelligence and a richer customer experience. In addition, as the experienced programmers retire, the institutional knowledge needed to run these systems is quickly disappearing.
We have completed scores of successful projects for a wide range of industries and public sector agencies.
Our experts transform your IBM, Unisys, and other mainframe applications and platforms, taking full advantage of public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud capabilities that result in a modern, robust platform that’s more scalable, efficient, and reliable. Our approach is tailored to your unique infrastructure, source code, business processes and support capabilities, and we’ll work with you to develop and implement the right mainframe migration strategy to reduce costs, increase agility, ensure compliance and significantly reduce costs.
Our experience includes:
Offloading mainframe app development and testing a cloud development platform or to the desktop
Integrating mainframe applications and data with applications on other platforms, whether on-premise or in the cloud
Inventorying, assessing and migrating your mainframe application portfolio to a cloud platform or distributed environment (on-premise or hosted)

The smooth operation of your enterprise depends on the reliability of the software systems and processes that support critical business requirements. CBT implements a proven and predictable software quality assurance program that contributes to smooth system implementations, raises customer satisfaction, and reduces overall production maintenance costs.
CBT tests every aspect of front and back-end interfaces to ensure they function as designed to drive high customer satisfaction and ROI. Whether it’s a customized ERP system or an off-the shelf implementation, software quality is a critical factor in supporting product releases or enterprise-wide initiatives. CBT conducts rigorous, systematic evaluation and testing of the developed software and related processes to deliver an on-time, predictable and successful software release.
In addition to a robust software quality assurance program, CBT performs additional audit activities, including verification of Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) compliance.

IT costs must be clearly understood, a value must be identified, proven and tracked, and performance must be measured. If your organization is far from these guidelines, then you are probably losing business focus, decelerating your growth and unleashing a series of IT red flags including poor service levels, turnover, lack of structured IT management disciplines and difficulty controlling IT costs – just to name a few.
