Creating Business Results from Information Technology

We've spoken previously about the need for Information Technology to evolve into Business Technology.

Here's how Forrester explains things:

Every aspect of the enterprise is increasingly embodied in the technology it uses, from process application-driven business operations to Internet-based interactions with customers and suppliers. Although today, only a few enterprises recognize the implications of this trend, within five years most will realize that this "business technology" (BT) is vital to delivering business results. Enterprises will embrace the competitive potential of technology and actively manage its use. BT providers will hone offerings to enhance business results, flexibility, and configurability.

I understand from this the following:

  1. Technology is becoming more important to all aspects of a business' operations.
  2. Companies will soon realize (if not already) that to remain competitive they need their information technology to deliver real business results.
  3. Companies that aquire IT systems that focus on 'business' delivery rather than 'technology' will end up the winners - by cutting their operational costs, improving productivity and increasing market share.

So if you're an enterprise company with an internal IT department or an ISV trying to stay afload against giant SaaS vendors here's your chance to gain a step ahead:
