Q: How do you actually effect a large-scale IT transformation?
A: I believe there are two key things you need to have in place: 1. Your leadership needs to be evangelistic. IT transformation is bigger than IT. … 2. You need to be ruthless about application rationalization. This is truly the secret ingredient. Application rationalization forces you to get serious about standardization and process and makes you focus on what really matters. I saw this in HP’s transformation: We had over 12,000 applications and brought that down to less than 5,000. When you do that, you can truly consolidate your data centers, automate, and create shared services.
