it challenges are a reflection of industry wide change and volatility
IT Challenges Are A Reflection of Industry-Wide Change and Volatility
  • Keeping pace with the speed of change is essential to succeed, yet
    • It is becoming increasingly difficult to make changes (complexity of inter-connected legacy systems, user skepticism/fatigue, cost and time required…..etc…..)
  • Budgets are increasingly consumed by “cost of doing business”– (controls, security, regulations, basic maintenance, increasing business volume of IT utilities, …etc…..)
  • Competencies to keep up with growing complexity is a challenge(multiple generations of technology, system’s integration, systems architecture, performance/scalability, ….etc…)
  • A Fragmented IT vendor community and a multitude of legacy sourcing contracts makes business integration and change management extremely tough.
  • Small, powerful, wireless enabled technologies emerging rapidly increasing the management challenges that go with massively distributed technologies.

How do we deal with these challenges and simultaneously

help the business adapt to increase competitive differentiation?
