What’s Holding IT Back? Obstacles to Becoming More Strategic



Ever wondered why IT has lost influence with the business, and it feels like you are left out of the conversation?

The unfortunate truth is that many IT organizations are viewed as merely tactical, and their main responsibility is “keeping the lights on.” But in today’s fast-paced, fiercely competitive business environment, simply keeping the lights on falls far short of what the business needs if it wants to remain competitive.

Taking the leap from simply “keeping the lights on” to truly transforming IT strategy comes with its own challenges. To make the transition, forward-thinking IT leaders are focusing on three foundation pillars that enable IT to transform and innovate: 

  • Top-performing IT talent
  • Business-IT alignment
  • A structure that can deliver on today’s demands and adapt to future needs

If even one of these fundamental pillars is weak, IT will continue to be a ticket-taker rather than a strategic partner. Download our guide to learn about steps you can take to make the transition.
