Less Is More

In many cases, the IT services industry may be a case of "less is more," given that traditionally, it has thrived on numbers. It may well be a numbers game when it comes to support and maintenance-level projects. But, for digital projects, having smaller teams where each individual can wear multiple hats is the best way forward.

These observations are, of course, not mandatory to follow, yet hopefully they offer proper perspective on how to better deliver IT projects across an ever-changing sector. If focus is maintained, the delivery model is sure to become much more streamlined moving forward.

Delivery of IT projects nowadays seems to require both long hours and the kind of will power only true heroes possess. This is especially true of projects that exist in the digital space. Thus, questions arise – what has changed, and what is needed to get things back on track so we don't need to rely on heroes to effectively deliver IT projects to the world?

In thinking about the IT services industry as a whole, Virtusa would like to offer five observations and recommendations designed to properly answer these questions.
