As everyone knows, technology is constantly changing and companies are upgrading their IT infrastructure to maintain pace. As this continues, companies will be restructuring their IT department into a hybrid model consisting of tech consultants and integrators.
So how can Managed IT Services help companies grow?
Consumer technology is becoming part of everyone’s work in the enterprise with BYOD. There is also a growing generation gap between young and veteran workers, each of whom are comfortable with different technologies and different use of technology.
Many Fortune 100 companies now use Google Apps meaning that the next generation of workers won’t be users of Microsoft Exchange or Office. Within five years, companies will be matching their enabling technology to the demographic of that time.
The CIO position will remain in an enterprise however their position will change into a technology forecaster and strategist, rather than a technology implementer. While the business can dictate the service or technology it wants, IT can still decide the flavor of technology.
Companies following this model are not trying to be ahead of the technology curve, they do not want to be behind it. They are trying to maintain pace in order to know what they’re going to ask for next before they ask for it.
