The politics and practicalities of IT procurement

Is cloud becoming a strategic disrupter?


Smiley face

The politics and practicalities of IT procurement have always presented organisations with a complex set of challenges, and against this background, the emergence of cloud architectures, alternative application deployment models and new service offerings have made decision-making evermore difficult.

This report, based on a survey of 250 UK-based IT and business managers and professionals, examines how attitudes and approaches are evolving in the IT service delivery space, and what needs to be considered to move forward in an effective and harmonious manner

Key themes:

  • Culture and politics can often stand in the way of progress
  • Love it or loath it, cloud has arrived and it’s undoubtedly here to stay
  • New procurement considerations presented by cloud
  • Finding a solution that's a strategic and operational fit with your business and IT delivery processes
  • Creating the magic formula that aligns priorities and unites business and IT
