Assembling the Building Blocks of a Resilient IT Organization

By: Marc StrohleinAdjunct Research Advisor

Abstract

This IDC Perspective discusses the attributes of a resilient IT organization. A resilient IT organization functions as a system, with the ability to recover from adverse events and reinvent itself to thrive in a new operating environment.

The goal of IT resilience is to create sustainable, adaptive digital services, platforms, and capabilities that help businesses anticipate, react to, recover from, and capitalize on adverse events by evolving new businesses. This study expands on Using Adaptive Planning to Build Organizational Resilience (IDC #US47080920, December 2020) to help CIOs identify and understand the foundational building blocks that are necessary to achieve resilience in their IT organizations.

"Creation of resilient organizations can be viewed as business recovery turned inside out," says Marc Strohlein, adjunct research advisor with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "Instead of trying to predict every possible adverse event and fashion responses, resilience initiatives focus on creating building blocks that can be assembled to respond to virtually any occurrence."
