Understand, Plan, Map, and Unite Your Organization with a Global Architecture of Business Systems
Digital transformation can mean many things to different people and organizations, but all share the same challenges, struggles, and limitations.
With this in mind the team of experts at Big Bang designed, over five years, the GAB’S Pyramid®, a simple and easy tool to map the current and future state of system architecture - company wide. It comprehensively reviews and presents how Information Systems should be implemented and work together in a company – any company, no matter the size. It is a useful methodology to:
Understand the state of your organization’s business systems today and plan a roadmap for the future state, regardless of the order of adoption or the department leveraging the tools.
Quickly map software decisions and their impact so your organization can make the right decisions at the right time and deploy systems in the correct order.
Ensure technology conversations are efficient and part of a larger plan.
Remain dynamic in an ever-evolving IT landscape with exploding and changing offers.
Proactively manage product releases, new functionality.
Manage your business systems today and tomorrow.

To leverage best practices, a company would start with the foundation, i.e., finances. However, beginning with the foundation (finances) is not always possible or a corporate priority, in the real world.
In the case where some layers are already in place, the pyramid serves as a visual reference for all systems working together and each one’s role within the organization.
Also, communication remains outside of the pyramid, as it is an additional connected layer, and touches every aspect of the pyramid hierarchy and the company, both internally and externally.
Ditch the presentations and get a real roadmap aligned to your organization’s goals and reality.
GAB’S Pyramid® is a framework designed by Big Bang. It encompasses five key areas including nine subcategories to map a modern company’s systems and software environment. They are:
Finances are the backbone of any business.
Systems should aggregate all operations, transactions, and actions across all departments to understand the financial impact on the organization. When financial systems are well integrated with other business systems, they foster more accurate financial data in real-time.
Enterprise Resource Planning
The single-source of truth lives here with all cumulative data in one system enabling visibility on reporting, finances, true ROI, operations and the consolidation of all business centers.
The Production layer is the core of your business operations.
As the heart of your organization, production is the “raison d’etre” and will drive the creation and delivery of products and services. The efficiency of your organization is dependent on the optimization of your production; streamlining systems that support production can impact the bottom line and performance of the team.
Professional Services Automation
Increase project profitability with real-time visibility of your customers, projects, staffing allocation,and skill sets.
Manufacturing (Material) Resource Planning
Demand planning with visibility of the shop floor to optimize machine productivity, staff allocation, and operating costs.
Supply Chain Management
Optimize the layout and productivity of your shop floor and delivery routes for raw and finished goods.
Proactively nurturing and building your key relationships creates long-lasting growth and support for the organization.
While often treated separately, it is important to gain a 360-view of all stakeholders, including customers, partners, and employees. It’s about managing, connecting, and creating relationships with people.
Customer Relationship Management
Enable your sales team to go from reactive to proactive customer relationship management with clear pipeline forecasting.
Human Capital Management
Simplify the growth and retention of your best talent with a 360-degree experience for your employees.
Attracting and connecting and increasing customer and employee traffic is tougher today than ever before - and the competitive landscape is only getting tougher.
The more you promote your brand and EVP (Employee Value Proposition), the more successful your organization will be.
Marketing Automation Software
Actively promote your brand and upsell products and services to the right person at the right time with the right message.
Motivate, align, and ensure clarity when you proactively manage communication within your organization and externally.
Communication is the glue of all your systems and helps the gears of your organization working smoothly together. Aligning teams and fostering teamwork all start with proper communication.
The systems that aid in your internal team’s communication can include knowledge management, documents, help desk, wiki, and intranet.
Your team members can connect with your customers or external stakeholders through chat, website, social media and other information sharing.
