This IDC PlanScape provides a recommended path for CIOs to transform the systems, services, and culture of support to the enterprise with dynamic insight into the performance of suppliers and their deployed assets. Maximizing the value of investment is a critical success factor for IT, while ensuring the productivity of every knowledge worker. This IDC PlanScape provides a step-by-step plan for addressing this priority."Controlling the cost and configurations of the technology in use by enterprise employees has been the charter of CIOs since the 1990s," states Cora Carmody, adjunct research advisor, IDC's IT Executive Programs. "In many regards, the nature of the problem hasn't changed. What has changed is the nature of the digital architectures, which needs unifying control mechanisms. Luckily, there are multiple examples of successful practices to follow and the technology available to deploy."
