The role of IT in strengthening the enterprise

IT in the modern enterprise has evolved from a back-office component to a core operational constituent that can improve business performance and increase shareholder value. CIOs now have an opportunity to demonstrate a truly executive level leadership role in defining their enterprises.
By implementing an agile development approach, for example, IT can improve time to market for products, thereby realizing business value earlier than traditional approaches. IT also plays a central role in data management and the delivery of advanced analytics, both of which enhance competitive advantage and profitability. IT can also improve customer service excellence by implementing solutions that improve the ease of doing business. And centralizing functions such as infrastructure or procurement to optimize economies of scale not only enables more effective expense management, but frees up senior management to focus on surpassing the competition.
