IT has brought a new dimension into the world, a new reality that businesses need to take into account. 20 years ago a static homepage and email address were signs of professionalism. Previously, most transactions were made offline.
In 2007 there was an important shift. Apple presented the iPhone (the first smartphone). Today, just 10 years later, only a few leave their homes without such a smartphone. Devices and apps flood the market ever since, which caused not only professionals to have highly technological tools, but also almost every individual consumer. The fast evolution of digital communications changed our way of communicating and doing business in a fundamental way.
The consequence is clear: today every stakeholder demands the ability to do business in a digital manner. This makes the quality of a business' IT infrastructure crucial for its development. More important, those businesses who can deploy their IT infrastructure in a strategic way, create a competitive advantage opposed to their competition.
Mastering the changes caused by the fast paced IT revolution, asks for new methods and insights. We sum up a few below.
