Impacts and Recommendations

  • Despite advantages over their Western counterparts, Indian CIOs are slow in adopting bimodal IT due to a lack of business-IT alignment and failure to understand the business value of IT
  • Indian IT environments have mostly been evolving through command, control and compliance regimes, and CIOs there have yet to progress beyond running the business
  • Increased pressure to generate business value is prompting Indian CIOs to take different approaches, and some are now realizing the need for bimodal IT to drive greater impact
