As IT organizations set their strategic goals for 2019, the word “transformation” plays a considerable role. As a strategic mandate, transformation is so expansive that getting one’s arms around it is a challenge in itself. Critically, IT transformation revolves around change that enables new business value. IT must embrace change to harness unprecedented levels of business data as the engine of that value. Accenture articulates the goal of transformation as “an agenda that provides substantial economic benefit along both revenue and cost dimensions, not just the cost-cutting approach that was common in the past.”1 Indeed, modern CIOs and other IT decision-makers must evolve technology infrastructure beyond its former key goal of cost-center efficiency to become an engine for innovation and revenue generation.
