IT creates opportunities past generations could only dream of – new business models, new markets, and new ways to connect with employees, partners, suppliers, and customers. But the same IT systems that connect us in more ways than ever also expose us to risk.
Is our information secure enough? Are we compliant with policies and regulations? Will the systems we depend on remain available? If our systems go down – how quickly can we recover? And how much data will we lose? As businesses depend more and more on IT systems, these are just a few of the questions on the minds of today’s IT leaders.
IT complexity adds additional challenges. Driven by explosive data growth, heterogeneous platforms, and fragmented operations, IT complexity increases risk exposure, hampers productivity, and creates potential for waste.
