Doing the Most with the IT Budget
CIOs and senior IT leaders such as directors of global applications and enterprise architects constantly face the challenge of reducing technology costs while continuing to deliver at least as much value to the business. The IT organization must always be seeking opportunities to automate the infrastructure and processes used throughout the enterprise to improve efficiency. At the same time, IT must continually enhance the application environment to modernize business processes and put more useful tools and information in the hands of those who produce business results. In other words, to ensure that CIOs and IT leaders are serving the business’s needs and satisfying its demands – and, not incidentally, maintaining their reputations – they must always be searching for ways to be not just more efficient but more effective.
