The IT industry is evolving at an unprecedented rate, looking for innovative ways of transforming businesses with better outcomes and shorter timeframes. But often, different initiatives are not immediately compatible with each other because they are often pursued individually to address different problems and concerns.

This whitepaper is based on our experience in a variety of delivery programmes across several industry sectors.
