|Is IT Throttling Your Business ?
Can today's Information Technology (IT) organization meet the paradigm of the World Wide Web? Making information available online, to everyone who needs it.
Example: Banks where you cannot access your accounts. In 2018Q1 a Canadian and British bank implemented a new login application, at the same time. The Canadian bank reversed their changes, and developed a new login process that works. As of 2018Q3, the British bank login still fails.
Example: Online broadcasts that you cannot access. BBC Radio introduced a new player in July 2018. Worked on my phone, but not my laptop. A week later. the new player stopped working on my phone, but now, was working on my laptop. Still not working on both phone and laptop.
These are only two examples of how technology can throttle a business. Because costs go up, and customers drift away, when online access fails. A little today. A little tomorrow.
Want to know if your IT organization is throttling your business?
If you hear comments such as
- " We cannot test for every platform. "
- " They should upgrade their ........ "
- " We are using the latest development tools. "
then IT is throttling your business.
