Today's IT leaders are not the same as yesterday’s. As more economic activity continues to take place digitally, IT departments are faced with more challenges every day. Not only are CIOs and IT decision makers being tasked to take on a multitude of ambitious strategies to transform the digital enterprise, but they are also expected to execute against their everyday demands – overseeing company computer operations; supervising information system and communications networks; and addressing policies, governance, compliance and security, just to name a few.
One strategy that will help drive real business growth and strategy across multiple departments, and free up the IT department to focus on the bigger picture, is IT modernization. And it's something that a lot of enterprises are considering – in fact, 70 percent of enterprises consider data center and application modernization a top priority for their business.
In this slideshow, Mark Lewis, CEO of Formation Data Systems, distills the top five things IT leaders should prioritize in order to make IT modernization a reality. The key to successful IT modernization includes proper planning, alignment with current and future goals and objectives, understanding vulnerabilities, and finding the right partner in order to facilitate implementation.
