It’s clear that technology is becoming critical to nearly all organisations, whilst it is changing at a pace never seen before. Should the CIO invest in sophisticated infrastructure when consumers now carry it around in their pockets, employees would prefer to use their own device and there is connectivity all around us? The IoT has accelerated innovation to an astonishing pace, so should the CIO re-establish the capability to build solutions again? Possibly the most significant challenge facing every CIO is to ensure that IT can respond proactively to business change, while also driving technical innovation.
Glue Reply is helping its clients address these challenges by establishing a common language, one that is clearly understood by IT and business stakeholders alike. We create a clearly understood goal, a framework to measure success and a target path that enables tactical alterations whilst staying on course. We take a capability led approach to architecture; IT responding to the capability needed for the business to meet it objectives. Our aim is to ensure that investment in IT delivers tangible and visible business benefit and the CIO can rapidly assess the impact of change be it technology, organisational or external drivers such as the economy.
To achieve this we must invest in our people and the IT industry. As well as investing in architecture accreditation for employees, Glue Reply is committed to the development and professionalisation of the IT industry. To that end, Glue Reply is a corporate member of the British Computer Society (BCS), the recognised Chartered Body for IT Professionals and a Gold Member of the Open Group responsible for the continual development of the industry standard architecture framework; TOGAF. We find these relationships are of great value to our growing organisation and a great way to get our consultants immersed in the Architecture debate. Our consultants contribute to the development of future releases, gaining a real sense of ownership and increased confidence whilst providing practical experience. They also get the opportunity to share their views with the communities and audiences of these professional organisations.
The importance of professionalising IT should not be underestimated. Many of the challenges that IT faces today can often stem from a lack of competence somewhere in the delivery eco-system. This is why Glue Reply is committed to providing services to the highest degree of professionalism and is actively supporting these organisations professionalise the IT industry.
