CIOs are struggling between two competing pressures: the pressure to provide stable, secure, high performance services and to deliver, innovative, technology-intensive services quickly. Bimodal IT provides a way to address both, yet many CIOs are unsure how to begin.
Key disruptive trends in enterprise software are changing the nature of how IT solutions are delivered, who performs tasks and how change is absorbed. To support digital business outcomes, IT leaders need to make fundamental changes to application delivery, architecture and strategy.
Shadow IT, decentralized IT and other negative terms make most CIOs and IT leaders nervous. Few IT organizations approach business-unit IT holistically to drive cost optimization strategies or innovation maximization strategies. Traditional approaches to business-unit IT increase costs and dampen innovation. The circumstances and growth profile of individual enterprises must dominate the final business-unit IT strategy.
Gartner has released a new special report addressing cybersecurity as a critical part of digital business, with its broader external ecosystem and new challenges in an open digital world. The pace of business accelerates to algorithmic speeds and material shifts in culture, behavior and technology are required. Security officers will work more like intelligence officers and trusted advisors as citizen and business-unit IT becomes the dominant model. Organizations will learn to live with digital risk as business units innovate to discover what security they need and what they can afford. Digital ethics, analytics, and people focus will be as important as technical controls. In this webinar you'll learn more about successfully addressing cybersecurity in digital business.
