Business IT Support from Strategic Asset

Creativity and technology to help fuel innovation and drive business growth

IT strategy is the chrysalis that transforms IT support from a liability into a strategic asset.

Business IT Support

Business IT Support often defines a company’s outlook on the world. It's either a positive and enabling, or even a transformative force with which to achieve growth - or it's a liability. Often, when the Finance Director or Head of Procurement oversee the IT support function, then it's a good indicator that IT is viewed as a cost centre, or even a liability and nicknames such as "the ministry of ‘NO!’" are sometimes used to describe the IT team or department.

But what if your business took a more positive and enabling outlook on the world and embraced technology to fuel innovation and drive growth? When technology and marketing combine, great things happen. Think of brands such as Apple or Facebook, brands which personify the very best of both marketing and technology combined. So why don’t more Finance Director's or Head's of Procurement combine their approach to business technology and marketing? A transformative Digital business model will incorporate cloud technology architecture as a business platform, leverage big data to make decisions, be mobile centric, and incorporate social media to engage customers. Companies that embrace technology and data to make better business decisions understand that it’s all about the customer and understanding them better to give them what they want.

The journey from a traditional business to a Digital leader is called ‘Digital transformation’ and it’s going on all around you. And that’s why it’s time to decide whether you want to be a Blockbuster or a Netflix. It’s time to change the game before it changes you, and there’s no time like the present.
