Change within the enterprise is no longer a once-in-a-while event. Enterprises are continually finding ways to re-invent themselves to enhance profitability, improve competitive footing, and anticipate industry trends.
IT must keep in step with the business, but the impact of transformations on IT landscapes — saddled with legacy systems and outdated technologies, not to mention data security and regulatory compliance requirements that are "do or die" — often mean IT lags behind the business.
To help reduce constraints, and for better alignment, the business needs to understand the issues IT is dealing with, especially during critical transformation phases.
But to do so, IT and the business must share a common language for transformation. And they must shift from viewing each project as an obstacle to understanding transformation to an opportunity for innovation and increased value.
IT needs its own transformation and agility to keep pace with the business. And it's available now with CrystalBridge and the SNP transformation platform.
Why is transformation readiness a critical success factor for your business and IT? Over time, ERP landscapes have grown in complexity, changing the nature of ERP projects from implementations to landscape transformations. From a business point of view, transformation projects today are among the most critical, complex and expensive programs that impact your organization and your process design.
