World's Leading Executives

Information Technology

Technology drives nearly every part of the business today, introducing new opportunities for Corporate IT to create competitive advantage. However, 63% of business leaders think IT is too slow to respond to new technology opportunities. To maximize value, IT must adopt a framework that enables it to quickly reallocate resources as business needs change.

Situation

Over half (63%) of business leaders believe their company responds too slowly to technology-enabled opportunities.

Insight

IT leaders focus too much on faster development and the miss the 85% of opportunities to accelerate IT that occur before development begins. To take advantage of these opportunities, IT must become adaptive by collaborating, flexing in response to change, and applying judgement based on context.

Situation

Frequent and sophisticated cyber attacks target every kind of organization. In response, companies have sharply increased investments in information security, but attacks are still getting through.

Insight

The old way of choosing security investments is not working. Most companies focus on tools and security analytics without clearly understanding the impact of their investment. Those that do track impact tend to invest very differently.

Potential

A new information security investment model that assesses and manages the impact of investments will drive a very different pattern of investment. Companies will be able to invest less, but they'll be able to reduce risk to a much greater degree.

Potential

Infrastructure organizations that can rebuild their service models to meet emergent, short-cycle demands can improve speed of delivery by as much as 10 times, at a lower cost to serve.
