Aligning Business and IT
Aligning Business and IT
Businesses face many challenges today, from the economy, competition, regulatory constraints, capital expenses and many other factors. Companies have greater pressures on their business than ever before and keeping internal costs down is a primary focus in most businesses.
For many companies the costs of running the business is consuming a greater portion of the bottom line. Business models have changed over time and this puts new pressures on business owners. In the mid-90s few companies had a need for email. Now it’s an integral part of any business venture. Internal applications, web presence and social media are just some examples of how technology has become more pervasive in business today. Adding to the pressure is the fact that many of these technologies do not have direct funding. Typically, IT has been seen as a negative cost center, bringing greater expenses that cannot be tied to specific revenue streams. From acquisition of infrastructure, costs to power and cool the data center and the manpower to maintain and develop it; IT funding is by far one of the greatest burdens on business today. An estimated 80% of an IT department’s resources are spent on “keeping the lights on” and only 20% on new initiatives. IT Managers are caught in a balancing act of supporting current technologies and driving value to the business.
