Gone are the days of business-as-usual tranquility. As today's competitive advantage may be a disadvantage as soon as tomorrow, long-run superior performance calls for non-stop innovation of new value. An agile enterprise must continually change and must even be able to reinvent its core essence in the face of major business discontinuities.  There is hardly any business change in which information technology (IT) does not play a role. In contrast, change is increasingly IT-driven. In addition to cost efficiency and reliability of operations, the role of IT as the enabler of organizational agility and innovation is increasing in importance.  However, the prevailing IT mess of large organizations does not readily yield to the ever-changing market needs. Over time, the IT landscape has evolved incrementally and resulted in "integration spaghetti" that is prohibitively difficult and expensive to manage and maintain. The organization is fragile rather than agile.  About two thirds of IT projects fail in some important way: time and budget overruns, terminations, or all of these. The economic impact of this problem is at around three billion dollars, or close to 5 per cent of global GDP. As projects are getting bigger and more complex, the number of project failures is actually increasing. Large IT projects are 20 times more likely to fail than large projects in other sectors, such as construction. 


Why should you attend :  

Information Technology (IT) has a fundamental impact in organizations and the society at large: unprecedented computing power, infinity of virtual space and ubiquitous connectivity present an enormous potential to create enterprise effectiveness, increase flexibility and enable entirely new business models.  The traditional "IT follows business" approach may have worked reasonably well in the relatively stable and predictable business environments of the past, but it falls increasingly short in the face of today's dynamic markets, where competitive advantage is in a continuous flux. In these turbulent times, IT must redeem its promise as a competitive weapon and determine the way in which business is conducted.
