IT has always been an anchor for the rest of the business organization - stabilizing the foundation that enables all other departments to operate effectively and smoothly. In recent times, the increasing demand for digital transformation has greatly impacted the responsibilities of IT. IT departments now find themselves shifting into a critical spot in their organization, helping to facilitate the adoption of a new technological culture amongst their usual responsibilities.
Today, IT is a broker of cloud services and the owner of connectivity and integrations between new services. However, with this complexity, IT organizations are increasingly finding it difficult to quickly resolve service issues, provide high-quality support to business customers, hold teams and service providers accountable, and continuously drive process improvements.
The complexity of the job paired with the lack of essential analytics and insights, makes it harder for poorly-equipped IT departments to provide the continual support expected. When tasked with optimizing new digital initiatives, service delivery, and IT performance, departments often find themselves in a juggling act, where resources and time are limited.
