Technologies such as generative AI have ushered in a new era of exponential opportunities and risk. Constantly playing catch up will leave IT – and organizations as a result – falling behind increasingly.
The answer? Exponential IT, a framework defined by Info-Tech Research Group to instruct IT leaders across nine domains on how to elevate their maturity and value creation capabilities, which have implications across our IT Management and Governance framework.
To close the gap between the exponential progression of technological change and current linear trajectories, IT will have to be the agent of change for the organization.
IT needs to take charge, and get buy-in
In this era of exponential technological change, IT has a major role to play:
- Bring a clear vision to the table. It’s critical to highlight what’s at stake as we’re past the inflexion point of exponential change. IT also needs to bring a clear vision for the future to organizational stakeholders as a solution.
- Get buy-in from organizational leaders. IT needs to lead the change for their organizations to stay competitive – a daunting task for which they will have to get buy-in and support from organizational leaders.
