In case you missed it, Forrester recently published its predictions on what and how I&O organizations must prioritize in 2015 to pursue the Business Technology agenda. The predictions are focused on how to innovate so that you can meet the speed, quality and agility your business demands. It also discusses the transformation needs I&O organizations are facing across people, processes and technology — in particular how you must focus much of your efforts on enabling your workforce to be productive.
As I have been in I&O since the beginning of my professional career (which means forever), I see 2015 as a year to transform our I&O profession and organizations. The opportunities are spanning from partnering with your Application Development & Design team in a new way of operations — we call this Modern Service Delivery (you might have seen this as DevOps); explore new ways to enable your workforce and how to change your approach to the technology supply chain and ecosystem. See for yourself what our predictions are. The full details can be found here in the November 20, 2014 report, "Predictions 2015: Infrastructure & Operations Prioritizes Pursuing The BT Agenda".
