Innovation the best path to business success
A recent IBM survey of more than 750 CEOs points to innovation as a way to gain competitive advantage and accelerate business growth. By delivering innovative services and products, enterprises can distinguish themselves from competition, increase market share, improve customer satisfaction, and generate new revenue streams-all essential elements for a successful business bottom line.
However, innovation can be a complex undertaking. Creating, implementing, and executing innovative strategies requires responsive business and IT operations that can quickly adapt to changing business requirements in a rapid and scalable manner.
And for many organizations, added challenges such as compliance regulations, technical and architectural complexities, budget shortfalls, and silod organizational structure have often left operations teams stretched too thin. Rather than delivering revenue-generating innovation, lines of business and operations teams have had to focus limited resources on assuring business as usual-with growth and innovation as a secondary priority.
To make growth and business innovation a priority, 78% of CEOs interviewed see the integration of business and technology as the preferred path to meeting their business objectives. But how do they get there?
