In this interactive session, you'll explore how transformation to the digital enterprise is influencing the way we think about 'business and IT' and how it is changing IT's operating model. After an introductory talk to set the scene, you'll discuss and debate the pros and cons of various ways of organising IT, for instance centralisation in a single IT department versus IT functions in each line of business. The session is intended to increase awareness of the 'digital enterprise' and to develop thoughts on what actually needs to change in order to be effective.
