Most CIOs say they understand that the old IT rulebook is obsolete, mostly because customers or colleagues in other departments are making noises about working around their organizations--or already are.
Yet most business technology teams cling to their legacy systems and practices. They insist on developing expensive native apps when the Web variety will do. They focus on securing their companies' perimeters and devices rather than their most important data. They abide the use of cloud services for only non-strategic apps and infrastructure. They continue to analyze data to find out what happened yesterday instead of what's happening now--or will happen in an hour, a day, or a month from now. They view social networking as a distraction rather than a core employee, partner, and customer platform. They shut out the personal devices and apps employees say they need to do their work. They take a year to deliver key business systems when peers in product development or marketing insist they need them in three months. They spend inordinate amounts of time on inside baseball instead of hitting the ball out of the park with customers.
Do you see any of your organization in any of the above?
For CIOs and other business technology leaders, how would your customers and colleagues rate your organization? Highly responsive, open-minded, agile, innovative, even visionary? Or a rubber room case study in Einstein's definition of insanity: An outfit that does the same things over and over again and expects different results?
At this year's InformationWeek 500 Conference, C-level executives from leading companies will gather to discuss how their organizations are rewriting the old IT rulebook and at the same time accelerating business execution and growth. The conference will feature a range of unconventional keynote, interview, panel, and workshop sessions.
