IDC PeerScape: Practices for Successful IT Organizational Transformation

This IDC PeerScape explores true IT organizational transformation and the approaches taken by four CIOs across the energy, pharmaceuticals, and academic sectors to achieve lasting, business-focused digital transformation. Each of these IT leaders significantly revamped their IT organizations to achieve and surpass their companies' business objectives. These businesses are now profiting from these successes and building on them."To accomplish their company's goals, some of these executives embedded IT personnel in different business functions, while others created cross-functional agile teams," says Julia King, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "They also developed and delivered clear and consistent messaging around DX goals, plus created new performance standards and metrics for IT to accelerate significant changes within IT that are critical to DX success."
