Apocalypse: 52 per cent of CIOs plan to blow up IT groups

Thomas Wailgum | July 23, 2010
According to a new Forrester Research report, more than half of the 178 IT executives surveyed are hatching plans to upend the status quo and institute a new IT model within three years.

So just what kinds of new organizational models are CIOs considering? The report highlights (and offers explanations for) several, including: business-process-based, demand-supply (DS), and plan-build-run (PBR). But, Cecere adds, the "verdict is still out" on what models will be deemed most appropriate for individual IT shops.

"Currently, we are only seeing the train's headlight in terms of the impact of these new organizational models," Cecere writes. "Understanding them will require time in order to cut through the fog of hype and the hopefulness from early benefits."
