How to Maximize IT Flexibility and Innovation

Big projects demand better solutions. Customers refuse to accept the kind of overruns that they meekly signed off a decade or two ago. They also want contractors in fields like construction and engineering to take a bigger share of the responsibility for coming up with a deliverable that not only works, but that also satisfies its end-users. They are prepared to share gain as well as pain, but they want a new, more creative, and more agile way of doing business. With customer wants and needs changing rapidly, contractors need to build flexibility and innovation into each project from the get-go.

Finding the Time is a Challenge

That means a hefty contribution from a contractor’s IT department, because business is now strongly IT-driven. New products, services, methods, and processes are increasingly born in software before materializing in the real world. But what if your IT department already has its hands full trying to perform day to day support and maintenance for existing and legacy systems with no time left to add real business value to the operations of the enterprise?

That Sinking Feeling

This situation causes many contractors to roll their eyes in despair. If IT departments are struggling to stay afloat with the maintenance millstone around their necks, contractors can kiss goodbye to IT innovation and strategic advantage, because neither the people nor the systems are available to make it happen – unless, of course, they can find a better approach.
