Bridging the IT-Business Alignment Chasm

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The quote above points to the potential for dramatic improvement that can be realized when infrastructure and application teams understand their respective requirements and contributions. Tight alignment between business applications and the IT infrastructure supporting them increases operational efficiency and agility; however, this alignment can be accomplished only when application and infrastructure requirements are well-understood by all parties involved in the process. Unfortunately, despite the ongoing efforts of IT organizations to generate increased value to the organization, this somewhat obvious opportunity is realized only infrequently. This paper explains the problem that some have called the "IT-Business Alignment Chasm" and demonstrates the opportunity to bridge that chasm to drive better business results.
