Some see information technology as a cost center, but IT can be a powerful tool to help businesses
realize their strategic goals. Leading organizations turn information technology into an effective and
efficient enabler by translating business value into IT mandates. Is your IT organization aligned
with your corporate strategy? Is a strong IT-business partnership a priority? Do your business leaders
understand the business value IT provides?
The challenges of fitting together the multiple moving pieces of an IT organization are all too
familiar. Point solutions are scattered throughout the organization. Projects are often driven
from the bottom up through organizational silos, making it difficult for IT to understand
their value. Business managers, often unaware of IT cost drivers and constraints, may not
be equipped to provide appropriate direction. In this environment, it’s extremely difficult to
match IT spending with business priorities.
