10 Practical Ways IT Leaders can Extract Value From IT

 

Every organisation has key objectives that it seeks to realise; maximising shareholder value, generating increased margins, enhancing brand equity, and operating responsibly and sustainably. The business aims to achieve these objectives by outlining strategies that improve efficiencies, optimise costs, improve customer and staff experience, maximise the potential of its people, mitigate risks and enable the organisation to become more innovative, informed, agile and capable of change.

Today, technology can either be a key enabler of, even a driver, for the business strategy. It can also be an inhibitor. At PTS, we understand the challenges faced by Business and Technology Leaders in ensuring that technology delivers maximum value back to the business.
