Companies face relentless pressure from customers to pick up the pace of product rollouts, adapt to ever shifting market changes and global expansion. Business and IT leaders must sync their strategies to achieve the speed and agility required to meet these expectations while, at the same time, remain focused on the cost effectiveness of IT initiatives. It can be challenging to bridge gaps between business units and the IT department and to unite them around a shared vision that powers the business. Corporations must fuse business and technology.
