In the emerging IT ecosystem, information technology is moving rapidly outside the domain of traditional IT organisations and the focus for IT directors should be on the business process and innovation supported by technology, says analyst firm Forrester.
Forrester says that most successful global enterprises have flexible business models — and flexible IT to support them. Business requirements, when captured as policies and process models, translate more directly and flexibly into the IT applications and IT infrastructure necessary to run your business in the digital age.
Such thinking, including examples of how to draw business benefit from it, will be on show at Forrester’s IT Forum, GigaWorld running from 7-9 June 2006 at Lisbon, Portugal
The event has the theme, ‘Achieving Business Flexibility Through IT Innovation’ and will tackle a range of strategic, tactical, and technological challenges facing IT management and business. It will endeavour to explain what the IT, business, and vendor communities have to do to thrive in the new ecosystem and show how to build a digital business with innovative technologies and IT management practices that drive innovation and, ultimately, top-line growth.
Forrester says that through a combination of analyst presentations, in-depth case studies, executive exchanges, analyst one-on-ones, and peer networking, attendees will acquire the tools, knowledge, and best practices to make the right technology decisions today.
