It is much more than just a new style of IT

I was down in Brazil this week and spent a few hours talking with a large number of architects from within HP Enterprise Services. One of the items we discussed is HP’s focus on the shift to a new style of IT that is underway.

 

There is actually more than just a shift in IT underway. It is a new style of business that requires more and a different IT support – essentially doing more with more.

As more data is available from more sources and there are more ways to analyze and calculate while delivering the result to individuals on the move – generating value. It is really about a new style of business that generates a positive feedback loop with the new style of IT, demanding more and more. A business approach that is more flexible, data driven and responsive. That is one reason I believe the concepts of systems of action are critical and a different perspective that needs to be embraced.

 

This will require organizations to assess the capabilities of their existing application portfolio and make some tough decisions. Sometimes what you stop doing is as important as what you start.

 

At the end of the day, it is the business shift that really matters. This week HP is hosting its HP Discover in Barcelona and this view of business and technology growth and inter-dependence will likely permeate HP’s news this week.
