Daffodil High Performance Business research has revealed that top companies distinguish themselves by positioning information-based, technology-enabled services as a strategic asset. IT investments must be integrated with the overarching business imperatives, and the modern CIO is under increasing pressure to run IT as a service-oriented business to help generate business value.

The shift from IT value-capture to IT value-creation is, in many respects, the culmination of a series of advances that have been changing the nature of corporate IT. Service-oriented architectures, software-as-a-service, network convergence, mobility and other trends have sparked noticeable improvements in IT flexibility, processing power, storage capacity and cost variability.

New sourcing models, as well as the acceptance of cloud computing as a viable, secure platform, have also set the stage for even faster, more responsive and cost-effective IT capabilities.

Together, these advances require CIOs to build service organizations that can choreograph IT services to respond to business threats and opportunities and drive the enterprise forward. Daffodil Operations Transformation can help you achieve this dual imperative.
