Six technology disruptions for enterprise IT
Enterprise IT has never witnessed such an intense demand for business value generation together with spend reduction and IT management. In addition to improving productivity and service levels, there is an increasing demand from stakeholders to deliver an agile digital enterprise, rapid innovation and flexible architecture than can keep pace with the rate of change in business.
We believe that six major technology disruptions are primarily driving this shift. These disruptions are causing shifts such as managing business assets instead of IT assets, and playing a strategic role instead of a support role in evolving newer business models.
