Disruptive trends are besetting the traditional IT organization across corporate America: Shift of IT decisions to business units, convergence of IT and business process outsourcing, cloud, social and mobile computing, and the consumerization of technology all conspire to demand a rethinking of the role of IT and of the CIO itself. There is urgency to act.
WGroup consultants are well attuned to these challenges afoot, having personally led and transformed many IT organizations themselves. On the one hand, if we don’t leverage cloud or global delivery, don’t use advanced analytics, don’t enable mobility, or don’t “innovate,” our competitiveness will be quickly left in the dust. On the other hand, expertise in governance, service management, innovation, multi-supplier management and data analytics are not only typically not part of the traditional IT organization, they are also hard to come by in the market. A new, dynamic model of IT’s relationship with business and with suppliers must be implemented.

- Overall IT Strategy and Enterprise Architecture

WGroup has helped numerous CIOs assess and transform their IT strategic frameworks, governance structures, and operational processes to meet the sometimes competing demands of the business and emerging trends in IT. We adopt a pragmatic approach to implementing new IT capabilities that balances future needs with short-term improvements and benefits. Many IT transformations are designed to be self-funding, with subsequent phases exploiting the success of prior investments and improvements.
