IT Challenges are Business Challenges
In today’s technology-driven environment, business agility depends on IT agility. But for many organizations, the potential business value of information technology has become literally trapped within traditional IT infrastructures that are too rigid, costly and complex to keep up with the pace of real-time business. In fact, most IT organizations spend 70 percent to 80 percent of their time and budget just to “keep the lights on,” leaving little time to innovate or support strategic business initiatives. With users demanding faster response times, and management demanding lower costs, organizations need a better strategy.
