I.T. Wars provides a clear path to proper alignment of technology and business, in achieving best results and ongoing returns. The true challenge is in bringing diverse groups of people together from the business and technical realms, in defining needs and making true delivery of solutions. The Business-Technology Weave is an approach that turns everyone and everything into a responsible forward edge. It includes considerations of people, knowledge, communication, corporate culture, attitudes, relationships, content (information), infrastructure, applications, needs, and expectations. It comprises missions with specific beliefs, values, and standards in service to security and growth. The Weave clears political impairments, helps to dismantle protectionism and jealousy, and breaks down departmental "silos." It opens the way to a future that you define - in preventing the alternative: future's imposition on you. What are the liabilities in today's environment of e-mail, blogs, IMs, downloads, and portable data? Consider: What is being done 'in the name of your domain'? How best to manage content, in avoiding a glut of information? How can staff best utilize the power of the utilities that are delivered to their desktops? What are the new scales of disaster planning, preparedness, prevention, and recovery? What is your organization's role in contributing to the surrounding public safety - in securing your own? I.T. Wars begins with a patient, comprehensive exposure of today's environment and challenges, with equal attention to the Business and IT reader. Whether your organization is public, private, government agency, or association you share in the same concerns: You need a business-driven technology strategy, as well as a business serving one. Now you can develop a vision and pragmatism strong enough to qualify for discussion, planning, and achievement of the best business-technology outcomes.
