People-Centric IT

A people-centric approach will prevail.

While IT has always had a desire to satisfy users, the business will drive more and more IT decisions and strategies. Many organizations are no longer using the term "users" to signal a shift away from the traditional relationship between IT and other employees. In many instances, they are being considered IT "consumers," rather than users. This mindset of treating users with the same care and consideration that a business treats its customers often requires looking at IT from the user out. At RES Software, this "people-centric" approach is seen as an important part of IT departments earning more visibility within organizations as a partner in the business.

A new year brings new strategic initiatives, new projects and new challenges for IT leadership. In 2015, Bob Janssen, founder and CTO at RES Software, believes that CIOs face many important decisions that will help shape the future of their IT organizations.

It is not difficult to see that many of these trends are interconnected with one another. While the challenges facing IT in 2015 won't be new per se, IT leadership finds itself at a very important crossroads. This coming year presents an opportunity to develop a roadmap and strategy that will reshape how IT supports the business. It is undeniable that IT departments positioned for the most success are evolving into brokers of technology to the business and putting people at the center of their technology choices.
