IT needs a makeover. Business complexity, digitalization, broader technology adoption and increasing expectations have forced a shift in the role of IT.

In the past, CIOs were focused on efficiency – supporting the business with optimal operational performance.

Now CIOs are also expected to advance the business – developing flexible capabilities to increase effectiveness, enabling the business to grow.

And there is an increasing expectation to drive innovation – adopting new technologies to differentiate and digitalize the business. Innovation isn’t optional anymore.

IT excellence is achieved when all three ingredients are maintained in the proper proportions for your organization as business priorities evolve:

  • the right amount of innovation to be competitive in times of digitalization;
  • the right amount of effectiveness to nimbly meet new challenges;
  • the right amount of efficiency so that it’s all sustainable.

Achieving the right ratio requires a business-driven IT strategy and the necessary resources and approach to help you transform the IT organization. A clearly defined target architecture and governance framework are required to keep you on track. You need timely and accurate information to manage your portfolios and monitor the results.

And agility helps you continually readjust the balance for sustainable business advantage.

Together with our start-up ecosystem and strategic alliances with digital leaders including SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, Salesforce and Amazon, we help you go digital and to implement the best IT practice.
