An Hypothesis

Enterprise IT is badly broken in most of it’s current incarnations. This is due to a wide range of influences – organizational, political and technical. I think there are ways to increase productivity and reduce cost and risk by changing enterprise IT practices towards:

  1. A collaborative business and IT culture that owns and manages risk rather than just outsource and lose control.
  2. An Enterprise IT strategy and Architecture that provides “cohesion” so that smaller, agile projects can deliver strategic value.
  3. Using (and developing in-house) development frameworks that enhance productivity by:
    • encouraging in-house standards and best practices,
    • operating at a high level of abstraction – business processes, services, events, rules
    • foster developer skills beyond “commodity” levels.
