Project and Program: DevOps in the Enterprise
, SHARE-wide Events
, SHARE Atlanta 2016
As enterprises around the world struggle with their digital transformation efforts, many are finding that innovative digital teams are moving much faster than their hidebound IT organizations. Rather than struggling to convince traditional IT to get with the digital program, executives are taking advice from IT research firm Gartner, and encouraging existing IT to continue in their desultory ways. However, many CIOs are realizing the dangers of following Gartner’s advice.
The central challenge with bimodal IT is that it encourages IT management to shift their transformation efforts away from 'slow' IT to 'fast' digital efforts.
Such bimodality is a recipe for disaster, as transformation efforts must be end-to-end. If IT governance remains buried in 'slow' IT, then 'fast' digital risks compliance breaches, security vulnerabilities and worse.
Instead, IT must itself transform appropriately in order to support the overall agility needs of the organization as it navigates the challenges of digital transformation.
Attendees of in this session, the speaker will:
* Gain an understanding of the bimodal pattern in today's enterprises and why Gartner's advice is so dangerous
* Learn how business transformation impacts both 'fast' digital efforts as well as 'slow' IT organizations
* Understand how IT must transform to meet the needs of today's digital business-Jason Bloomberg-Intellyx LLC
