IDC PeerScape: IT Transformation — Practices for Reinventing the IT Department as a Business Accelerator

This IDC PeerScape describes how five chief information officers (CIOs), in a variety of industries, are transforming traditional IT departments into business-savvy innovation engines. The traditional, tech-siloed IT department is a bad match for an organization trying to compete in the fast-paced digital economy. But what do you replace it with? There are numerous ways IT departments can become more business focused, such as embedding IT professionals in business units, creating cross-functional teams, or shifting from a project orientation to a product orientation. One company even changed the name of its revamped IT department to Digital Services. Readers will learn how these CIOs determined which IT operating model to adopt for their organization and then developed an IT talent strategy for the new regime."This is less about changing boxes on the organization chart and more about getting IT professionals working with their business peers to coinvent the future of the business," says Mitch Betts, an adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs.
