Emerging from our early CIO Survey results, mentioned in our Symposium keynotes, and elaborated in our CIO Survey presentations at Symposia around the world, the notion of Two Speed IT seems to be capturing the mood of clients – a need to keep some things safe and steady, but be fast and reactive in other areas. This goes beyond just agile software development to two-speed organization structure, metrics, talent, partnering with startups and smaller organizations. IT connects well to run-grow-transform budgeting, and pace-layered approaches.
We will publish more on this in the January 2014 CIO Agenda report, and subsequent research throughout 2014.
I am personally looking forward to discussing Two Speed IT with clients at Barcelona Symposium shortly.
