Business & IT
The principal and unique function of information technology is to provide applications for illustrating and supporting business processes.And this is precisely where the wheat is separated from the chaff: it is not enough to consider an integrated ERP system as the answer to all problems. Companies must decide which business processes they want to support with IT and in what way.
Is it a case that “IT follows business” or “business follows IT”? They must decide to what extent they will take into account the requirements of their specialist departments.They must decide to what extent they will follow a standard in terms of both the application and technology architecture. They must decide to what extent they will provide support internally for their IT operations or whether they will look to external service providers. They must decide what innovations they require and expect from their IT system and how they will avoid being trapped by the costs of running it. They must decide how they will organize their IT resources, organization and processes logically in order to ultimately gain the maximum benefit from the IT system, and to understand and exploit this as a competitive factor for the business
rather than regarding it as a cost factor!
