This IDC study, written for CIOs and senior information and technology executives, lays out a plan for getting started in the IT transformation that is essential for the digital transformation of a business. This study leverages IDC's digital transformation leadership framework, Leading in 3D, which provides a comprehensive, process-driven approach to technology management: integrating — in a systematic fashion — innovation, speed, agility, and customer responsiveness with predictable, optimized IT infrastructure. This study presents a 10-step approach and a 100-day plan that will enable senior executives to successfully launch an IT transformation and implement the Leading in 3D model.
"For CIOs and IT executives, speed seems like an impossible challenge. However, speed should be regarded as the most powerful component in achieving superior performance for the IT organization in terms of business outcome, agility, scalability, and cost," says Serge Findling, vice president of research with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP).
