03/05/2008 How to transform IT into a Strategic Business Partner Gold Club Protected

Focusing IT on business outcomes:

99 percent of chief executive officers (CEOs) say that information technology (IT) is essential to business competitiveness, but only 31 percent of chief information officers (CIOs) believe IT is sufficiently aligned with business objectives and strategy. This white paper focuses on the concept of business service management (BSM) and offers a path toward more effective IT/business alignment. In brief, BSM is an approach to focusing the efforts of IT operations on business outcomes. The idea is that IT acts not only as a service providing business but as a fully engaged strategic partner taking actions to help the overall business achieve its goals. The emphasis for IT, then, becomes one of managing the overall health of business services—not only from a technical perspective, but also from the point of view of the business.

08/20/2007 The Value of SOA Governance Gold Club Protected

The definition of corporate governance is creating, communicating, and enforcing policies in a corporate environment. Governance is the key to balancing executive control with employee and customer empowerment across the enterprise. While many corporate governance activities don't directly involve the information technology (IT) department, the enterprise does call upon IT to provide tooling for automating policy creation and enforcement, when itÍs possible to represent policies in a machine-understandable format.

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an approach to organizing IT resources to meet the changing needs of the business in flexible ways. Governance is an essential part of any SOA implementation, because it ensures that the organization applies and enforces the policies that apply to the Services that the organization creates as part of its SOA initiative. But more importantly, organizations can leverage SOA best practices to represent policies broadly in such a way that the organization can achieve better policy management, flexibility, and visibility into policy compliance across the enterprise.

11/09/2006 Fostering People's Interaction and Collaboration Gold Club Protected
To encourage efficiency and innovation, companies are looking for new ways to empower people using technology such as SOA. People are an integral part of the services delivered through SOA, because they interact with those services to execute business results. Businesses can provide personalized, streamlined environments for employees to interact with other people and targeted information using SOA and encourage greater collaboration among employees, business partners and customers. This executive brief explores in greater detail the people entry point for an SOA that enables real time views of key business processes and organization of information to help people interact effectively, make better decisions and collaborate more freely.
