Technology Strategy

Getting the most from your technology strategy enables the achievement of organisational transformation and improvement.

What is the future of cloud computing?

The explosive growth of cloud computing may overwhelm some enterprises, as barriers to adoption are removed and more providers and services enter the market. Consumers are trying to find IT services that are flexible and can be managed consistently but don’t require lock-in. Some providers, meanwhile, struggle to stand out from the crowd and identify their ideal target markets.

A new era begins: Redesigning the IT organization for a period of exponential change

Information technology is increasingly viewed by CEOs as the “linchpin” connecting strategic intent with capabilities delivered. In light of its increased importance, companies are rethinking the fundamental design of the IT organization. A new IT model is emerging, centered on: reorganizing business and IT around “outcomes,” leveraging social communities, creating organizational transparency, rethinking job roles, as well as developing an emerging new leadership model for an increasingly connected world. Companies adopting these practices are seeing substantial benefits, ranging from more innovative and accelerated delivery, to dramatic reductions and shifts in IT spend.
