Innovation management is core competence

More and more often, the area of innovation is becoming the competence of IT, also because new business fields often only have something to do with the actual core areas of the company at second glance. Of course, this poses very special challenges for IT. It must move from being a service provider to becoming a partner and designer and prove its value for the company. Without clear visions, strategies and processes for e.g. innovation management, automation but also for data-driven business, this will not succeed. The role of those responsible will continue to change significantly, with an additional focus on recruiting and people development – otherwise the challenges could not be mastered. At our strategy summit on IT and Information Management, let’s discuss together whether internal IT is still necessary, whether IT is completely integrated into business or how IT can be set up to generate significant value and prove it. What steps do CIOs & CDOs have to take today to influence the development in their interest, for the best of the company?
