Adopt an Exponential IT Framework

Today's and future generative AI capabilities have led to the next sea change for IT leaders. Exponential IT is Info-Tech's answer for IT leaders on how to adapt rather than fall behind. Our proprietary framework defines the aspirations and tactics needed for all areas of a modern IT department.


Exponential IT Keynote Presentation

As technology advances exponentially, so must your entire organization led by IT. Our keynote presentation makes a compelling case for Exponential IT with a clear vision for the future across nine IT domains.

Gauge Your Readiness to Transform

Exponential IT Readiness Diagnostic

Assess the readiness of your organization to embrace and extract value from exponential technologies. Measure executive stakeholder perceptions of organizational readiness for transformation and IT leader perceptions of IT readiness for transformation.

This readiness assessment is a crucial initial step in the Exponential IT journey to help you understand the needs, opportunities, and priorities of stakeholders across the organization.

Plan Your Exponential IT Journey

Develop an Exponential IT Roadmap

As technology advances exponentially, IT needs to undergo transformation to continue creating value for the organization. Build an actionable roadmap of initiatives towards Exponential IT, which will help shift the role of IT from Trusted Operator to true Organizational Leader.

Exponential IT beckons, but succeeding in this new world requires bold steps.

IT leaders will have to lead the charge through the inherent uncertainties and opportunities. They will have to develop and prioritize new practices, leveraging exponential technologies to create business value and results, both for IT and for their organization.

Exponential IT therefore has implications across the many capabilities of our IT Management and Governance model. Info-Tech offers an integrated set of principles across nine domains to help IT leaders change the trajectory of their organizations.
