#TFT14 Rob England: Slow IT: Meet in the Middle

1,122 views

Published on

I've talked before about the need for Slow IT. Here then is a strategy for IT to address the issue, to make a value proposition for the parent organisation about how Slow IT will deliver benefit, will allow IT to be more response, will enable Fast IT.

Fast IT is all those things you have heard about, from CSI to Agile, Lean, and DevOps. You will struggle to get them in place in a legacy environment without some Slow IT.
