Economy boost means IT must start delivering true business value


"With spending on IT increasing, businesses must prioritise the IT projects that deliver the best return on investment, according to analyst Ovum.

Speaking at Ovum's Industry Congress (OIC) in London, Nicole Englebert, director of research and analysis at Ovum, recommended IT leaders prioritise projects that deliver the most return.

'Always decide where you'll place your resources,’ she said.

Rather than risk ending up with a disjointed architecture that may arise if projects are run incrementally, she urged IT leaders to adopt a strategic approach to objectives.

Department store John Lewis is an example of a business that needed to take a strategic IT focus.

Paul Coby, director of IT at John Lewis, discussed how he realised the company's IT was working against staff.”
