Challenges

Companies face relentless pressure to innovate their business models, stay competitive, and adapt to shifting markets. Business and IT leaders must align their strategy to achieve the speed and agility required to meet the objectives, and, at the same time, remain focused on the cost effectiveness of their IT projects.

Many IT departments struggle to figure out which IT assets are needed to achieve business objectives when planning or executing new projects.

Differences in goals and culture between IT departments (and lines of business) result in ineffective development, which in-turn fails to support business innovation. Furthermore, Agile developments can add complexity to an already complex IT landscape.
