It has been a busy week for me here so I've not had much chance to think about blogging...
I did come across a post on the HP solutions site titled: The six best enterprise technology strategies to get ahead in a slow economy. This topic of IT's role preparing for a new future is something I've touched on many times in this blog.
The six strategies are:
1) Innovate at urgent speed
2) Partner up and improve efficiency
3) Involve your constituents or customers
4) Manage your supply chain
5) Change the cost equation
6) Evaluate tactical spending vs. risk
That thought process is also core to the Instant-On Enterprise materials elsewhere. During a downturn can be a good time to start a business, it is also a good time to plan for the ramp up that will hopefully, eventually arrive.
