IT’s Latest Challenge: Innovation and Transformation

I have been oddly quite here on CANITPRO.NET as of late and with good reason.  Over the summer I was asked to contemplate Microsoft’s three core ambitions:

  • Create more personal computing
  • Reinvent productivity and business processes
  • Build the intelligent cloud


Timely as the following was mentioned during the September 26th 2016 Microsoft Ignite keynote:

IT professionals have possibly one of the hardest jobs in business today. They are always faced with limited budgets, time constraints and are seldom rewarded.  In recent years, the business world’s ambition of cloud-first, mobile-first enablement has fallen squarely on IT’s shoulders.  Balancing data access with data protection, widespread data and device management, handoffs between public and private cloud - all challenges that IT Professionals face.  In light of this, it is understandable why IT professionals feel unappreciated.


What most fail to realize is that every organization depends on technology to push business forward.  Business leaders see the change ahead and rely on their IT Professionals to make sense of it all. IT Professionals can help provide business strategy, launch new capabilities and harness the vast amount of data available for the good of the organization. To do so, however, we need to embrace change.


The leap from Information Technology to Innovation and Transformation might feel enormous to some. Pierre and I want to ensure you don’t take the leap alone.
