Today, a hurricane is forming, and businesses are headed straight into it. This hurricane is arising from the convergence of several enormous trends in information technology, including cloud, mobility, Software as a Service, and Big Data. In Inflection Point, Scott Stawski shows how to harness these fierce winds of change, put them at your back, and sail towards greater competitiveness and customer value.

Stawski explains the strategic implications of today’s new technology paradigms, helping you reshape strategy to embrace and profit from them. You’ll discover how technology and other factors are driving a radical new round of disintermediation, reintermediation, and disruption–and what that means to you and your company.

Stawski shows how to go beyond inadequate incremental improvements, dramatically reducing IT spend and virtually eliminating IT capital expenditures. One meaningful step at a time, you’ll learn how to transform Operational IT into both a utility and a true business enabler, bringing new speed, flexibility, and focus to what really matters: your true core competencies.

  • BUILD A CONTINUAL TRANSFORMATION ENVIRONMENT THAT’S READY FOR ANYTHING
    Focus on high-value core competencies, not fixed assets or unchanging processes
  • CONSUME IT THE WAY YOU CONSUME ELECTRICITY
    Stop running data centers, buying software, and managing applications–forever!
  • LEVERAGE THE CLOUD’S SIMPLICITY WITHOUT LOSING CONTROL OR SECURITY
    Use standards and governance to maximize cloud benefits with minimal risk
  • HARNESS THE PRECIOUS ASSET YOU MUST ALWAYS KEEP CLOSE: DATA
    Build data-centric operations to deliver the right knowledge, right now, wherever it’s needed
