- IT is not allocating scarce resources (people and dollars) on the most valuable activities.
- Application responsiveness suffers due to a constant need to remedy major issues.
- The IT department doesn’t have a full grasp on where it needs to improve.
- Reactive behavior rules, and as a result IT is often surprised by unforeseen events.
Organizations with a roadmap report being:
- 200% more pleased with their application quality.
- Four times more likely to be happy with the ability to manage legacy applications.
- Six times more likely to feel aligned with the business needs.
Road-mapping alone is a valuable exercise that should not be overlooked. Schedule regular reviews to keep your roadmap current and continue anticipating the business’ needs.
