Overview

Today, both the role of IT leaders and the very definition of IT are rapidly evolving. Strategies,
perceptions, and key figures are becoming more business oriented as in-house services are outsourced, and new technologies create new opportunities. With the surge of everything-as-a-service (XaaS), Internet of Things (IoT), cognitive computing and automation, and the ownership of IT by the business, it is time for the IT leadership to rethink how it views technology and approaches new challenges—organizationally, operationally, and technically.
These technological changes are rewriting the narrative of IT, shifting it from a siloed support entity to the core of a modern digital business. The IT strategy of the future is not an IT strategy at all—it is a business strategy.
