|Technology Forecast: Winter 2009
Do more with less. Be more innovative. Manage continuous change. Anticipate market shifts. Deliver value from acquisitions. Make information a strategic weapon. Be more agile. In scores of conversations with business and technology executives, it has become evident that many apparently unrelated initiatives share a common challenge: to manage them in an era of continuous change without tearing the organization apart by lurching from one initiative or crisis to the next.
Organizations today face a rapidly-changing strategic landscape that forces organizational change and stresses the fabric of enterprise applications that enable so many critical business processes. Increased merger and acquisition activity, challenges associated with global networks and markets, continued pressure associated with regulatory compliance, and the need for more customer intimacy are driving new investment in IT as parts of large-scale enterprise transformations.
At the same time, technology trends such as service-oriented architecture, IT security challenges, and the emergence of Web 2.0 are forcing organizations to reassess their existing systems and look at new investments in a different light. Meanwhile, users' expectations are on the rise due to more flexible systems, ad hoc reporting, dashboards, and mobile computing, to name a few. The prospect of embarking on enterprise transformation initiatives can be quite daunting given the complexity of today's business environment and technological systems.
