Building a Digitized Platform
As your company begins to expand, whether domestically or internationally, it is important that standardized systems are organized for all branches to maintain efficiency. To do this, your company has to build a digitized platform which focuses on three main areas: a shared IT infrastructure, consolidated data centers, and enhanced IT governance. In this chapter, Weil and Ross outline four stages of organizational learning that must take place in order to create a digitized platform and achieve greater simplification and agility. They provide guidance for driving benefits from each stage and transitioning from one stage to the next on your journey to integrated digitized processes. This chapter was originally published as chapter 4 of "IT Savvy: What Top Executives Must Know to Go from Pain to Gain."
