Run at any speed or scale the market requires

As the lines between business and technology continue to blur, IT functions are becoming more influential at all levels of the enterprise.

CIOs are increasingly participating in setting the strategic direction of the organisation, architecting a seamless digital operating model, realigning capabilities and people, and monitoring performance and achievements against targets.

IT is transforming from a function that builds and connects everything, to a function that houses the capabilities, governance, platforms, and partners that can run at any speed or scale that the market and customers require. This means playing a more influential role as the enterprise technology evangelist, business process expert, data guardian, modern architect, and cultural champion of breaking down the silos of central control.

By 2022, 80 percent of revenue growth will depend on digital offerings and operations1. This means organisations can live or die by the way they design and deliver technology services, respond to issues and manage expectations.

With such a large shift in the culture of IT and the business, and the structural layers of how products and services are ideated, designed, developed, and delivered, how should the connected enterprise prepare?
