As businesses transform their organizations to meet the demands of a hypercompetitive digital economy, one of the more impactful changes is the blurring of organizational lines that formerly defined business functions. Today, all employees take ownership in achieving business goals; and decision makers, representing diverse points of view, are likely to have a say in investments that impact achievement of those goals. A key example is the expanded purview of the IT organization. IT organizations that once focused primarily on asset management now take responsibility for achieving strategic business goals. At the same time, line-of business employees have greater influence over technology decisions and purchases. In a 2014 Frost & Sullivan global survey, 63% of line-of-business managers said at least some technology spend comes from their own (non- IT) budgets.
