Research, Inc., (Nasdaq: FORR) Business
Technology Forum 2009: Lean: The New Business Technology Imperative
Businesses in today’s economy are forced to reevaluate traditional
business and engineering structures and trim excess applications and
solutions from their IT infrastructures. Business technology leaders are
looking to increase value and reduce waste in the delivery of their
business processes and systems.
Lean IT, a business and technology imperative for increasing value and
reducing waste in the delivery of business processes and systems, is the
answer. It is a mindset and way of working that enables Application
Development & Program Management professionals, business process
experts, and information and knowledge managers to work closely with the
business to more rapidly assemble solutions that deliver — just in time
— the needed capabilities, information, and insights.
Everyone wants to be Lean these days — but it’s a big change from how
the business and IT typically work together today. By embracing Lean,
organizations will be well positioned to tap into technology solutions
that propel the business forward when the economy rebounds. Forrester’s
Business Technology Forum will give CIOs, Application Development &
Program Management professionals, Information & Knowledge Management
professionals, and other business technology leaders the tools they need
to sort through the myriad of complex system portfolios, processes, and
sourcing models and deliver Agile, fit-to-purpose, efficient solutions.
