Is Your Organization Delivering on a Business-Driven Roadmap?
For the last 20 years, IT teams have focused on transactional efficiency and cost optimization. While those are still critical to running a smooth operation, business teams are asking IT to focus on initiatives that accelerate innovation and growth. One way to do that is to break away from a vendor-dictated applications roadmap towards an IT investment plan that is business-driven. Authored by former Gartner analyst, Pat Phelan, this white paper will provide some of the telltale signs that your organization could be constrained by technology-dictated roadmaps. Pat also highlights how to link your Business-Driven Roadmap with distinct destinations that can result in game-changing results for your company. And she will explain how to take advantage of vendor updates, without letting the vendor dictate the route, priority or timing of your roadmap.
The Business-Driven Roadmap Imperative
Although many CIOs have the mandate to innovate, only a lucky few get new budget and staff to deliver the innovation. Those that don’t must balance the challenge of resource allocation with the pressure of adhering to costly ERP vendor roadmaps—for maintenance or cloud migration—or seemingly risk losing vendor support. Making the mindset shift from a vendor-driven model to a Business-Driven Roadmap—where IT spending is aligned with business goals, priorities, and timing—can enable you to: optimize budget and staff to create capacity: allocate the right organizational resources to the right pursuits to support targeted business outcomes accelerate innovation: use created capacity to adopt new best-in-class IT functionalities to enable business strategy future-proof your enterprise: maximize the value and lifespan of existing and customized assets to serve business goals Discover the 11 attributes of a Business-Driven Roadmap and how it can enable you to maintain control of your company’s IT direction.
A Business-Driven Roadmap Leads to Game-Changing IT Results
There’s a fork in the IT road. One direction leads down a high-cost/lower-value path focused toward your ERP vendor’s profitability, and the other down a lower-cost/high-value path focused toward your own organization’s business success. Which direction will you choose? This infographic paints the stark contrast between the two options. The vendor-dictated roadmap may be fraught with exit ramps to forced migrations, lower-value upgrades, immature cloud offerings, and higher support costs. The Business-Driven Roadmap navigates mile markers like strategic investments, business goals, risk reduction, and digital transformation. The choice becomes clear. If you have already started down the vendor roadmap, simply make a U-turn. For all roles within the enterprise, following a Business-Driven IT Roadmap is a path to success.
