Publication Date: December 2016 Hardback 176 pp.
Information systems have become a major enabler of business evolution and transformation, and this book offers simple and practical methods for companies to use them to their full advantage.
The Digital Transformation in business has welcomed technological innovation in many areas, acting both as a vehicle for change and as a response to change. For example, automation has resulted in increased productivity and communication abilities as well as a new mode of working for employees. The introduction of management software has also transformed relations with customers, suppliers and partners, and the pace of innovation only continues to increase.
Access to and the sharing of information, the value of data and the potential for collaboration are undergoing significant changes and offer enticing benefits to businesses of all sizes. To harness these benefits, companies must understand the information technology available to them and define a strategy for their implementation. The authors of this book present strategies to manage the complex strategic assets represented by information systems, enabling boards of directors, executive committees and business managers to fully appreciate the impact of good information system governance. The approach and tools within can be used to acknowledge and improve the level of maturity of a business, empowering readers to take full control of information systems and the opportunities offered by the Digital Transformation.
