Transcending Bimodal: Embrace Full-Spectrum IT Leadership

Transcending Bimodal: Embrace Full-Spectrum IT Leadership

This IDC study explores technology leadership in the era of digital transformation. Written for CIOs and other senior IT executives, the study discusses the leadership challenges and opportunities posed by digital transformation. In particular, the study discusses the rise of bimodal IT as a natural response to business requirements but a model that fails to accommodate the complex requirements of managing digital transformation initiatives. In conclusion, the study describes IDC's digital transformation management model, Leading in 3D (L3D), which provides a comprehensive, process-driven approach to technology management: integrating — in a systematic fashion — innovation, speed, agility, and customer responsiveness with predictable, optimized IT infrastructure."We began developing Leading in 3D in early 2015, and since then, we have looked at a wide variety of organizations worldwide to identify those who have embraced L3D's three IT leadership dimensions. Many thriving organizations have strongly voiced the need to move beyond bimodal to L3D's more comprehensive approach," says Joseph C. Pucciarelli, group vice president of IDC's IT Executive Program (IEP).
