Value proposition

​DOT1 believes that incremental change is insufficient. It is necessary to fundamentally rethink and radically redesign what a business or organization does in order that it can flourish in a changing world.We enable a holistic approach to Application Maintenance Support, addressing each component- process, people and technology. Our unique approach asks:

  • If you are creating this service now, what outcomes would you be looking to deliver?
  • What measures will you use to be able to know you’ve achieved those outcomes?
  • How would you design your service to realize those outcomes?

DOT1, therefore, fundamentally reviews all aspects of the service delivery area involved and concentrates on realization of outcomes. ​
