|As IT's impact on the business and the
business image is ever increasing, watch the
emerging trends. Here's my view on three things to
keep an eye on...
Go for Green
- with global warming in mind and IT's increasing
energy consumption, green equals
- from smart phone's to ultra portables;
the future is small & functional.
Go for Integration
- replacing what you've got is not always the best
option; integrate and get a return for a change !
Legacy systems are a key concern
for major corporations and very specifically a
considerable compliancy risk in the banking
For a prime Dutch bank I have coached their
Wholesale Banking branche through a two-year legacy
reduction programme effectively migrating (utilizing
an onshore-offshore migration factory) all
applications running on legacy systems towards
current state of technology including virtualisation,
hosting concepts and operational standardisation.
