Develop an Exponential IT Roadmap

Evolve IT to harness unprecedented opportunities in the era of exponential technologies.

Book This Workshop

Organizations need their IT functions to play a critical role as they face new threats and opportunities from rapidly evolving technologies.

  • In a rapidly changing technology landscape, organizations are adopting exponential technologies at an accelerated rate. The chasm between the organization’s desire to harness technology and IT’s ability to deliver it will continue to widen if IT continues down a traditional delivery path. Traditional linear IT is no longer viable to sustain IT's place as the leading technology provider for its organization.
  • The chasm between the organization’s desire for harnessing technology and IT’s ability to deliver it will continue to widen.
  • To proactively keep this gap closed and sustain IT’s place as the leading technology provider for the organization, IT needs to fundamentally transform the way it’s operating.
  • However, it can also be a difficult exercise to prioritize where to start and which areas to focus on your journey to evolve your IT organization.

Follow Info-Tech’s approach to building an Exponential IT roadmap:

  • Assess your organization’s readiness for exponential technologies and IT’s readiness for Exponential IT.
  • Determine what drives organizational value, then use this to identify your Exponential IT programs and work packages derived from Info-Tech’s expert insights and framework.
  • Identify and prioritize initiatives to work toward Exponential IT over the next 12 months, using Info-Tech’s transformation actions as a guide.
  • Leverage the Communication Template to clearly communicate the roadmap and benefits of Exponential IT to stakeholders.
