Business and IT unification is a transformational journey that requires steady, unwavering commitment. There are five fundamental steps that companies should take to reach unification in order to unlock innovations in process efficiency, process optimization, insights and value creation.
By unifying business and IT, companies can set the stage for a steep upward trajectory for productivity not seen since the late 1990s. As a company goes further along its business and IT unification journey, it can achieve compounded productivity gains that will eventually accelerate its innovation engine.
As more companies throughout our economy pursue business and IT unification, significant interdependent network benefits will result. Interdependent companies can co-operate much more productively in ways that advance mutual priorities, and this will form a continuously accelerating unification feedback loop that will create incremental value throughout the value chains they share.
