      History Lesson: The evolving mission of IT
      Infrastructure Solutions
      Business complexity, broader technology adoption and increasing expectations have forced a shift in the role and how IT delivers services.
      In the past, CIOs were focused on efficiency – supporting the business with optimal operational performance to decrease costs.
      Now CIOs are expected to advance the business goals – developing flexible capabilities to increase effectiveness.
      Leveraging the gap between the two and adopting new innovative technologies, optimization allows IT and business to differentiate services for competitive advantage.

      Market Trends: Sourcing Changes Over Time
      1960s - 1980s
      Organizations used a sole
      outsourcing provider focused
      on reducing costs
      2005 - today
      Sourcing enabled by a *sourcing service integrator”
      1990s - 2005
      Evolving demands leads to
      Multi-sourcing and best-of-breed
      technology providers.

      Productivity Imperative
      Companies spend, on average,
      5 to 10 percent of their total revenues on IT and estimates suggest that upward of 70 percent of server capacity goes unused—even more at midsize and small companies, since they can’t achieve scale.
      Advances in “cloud computing” have vast potential to raise utilization rates and simultaneously help companies to increase their computing capacity, while slashing IT costs by 20 percent or more.

      Our Research indicates that a lack of integration between strategy and operations is a major factor in the failure of organizations to achieve their strategic goals:
      • “90% of strategies effectively designed fail in execution” Ref. Kaplan & Norton
      • “Companies on average realize only 60% of the financial performance their strategies promise... more than one-third of executives surveyed placed the figure at less than 50%.” Source: Harvard Business Review
      IT Excellence Delivery Framework
      Effective and EfficientIT execution requires organization-wide Optimization and implementation of many processes, specialized techniques and frameworks. As a result, we have integrated the full lifecycle: from strategy through operations:
