Technology is central to business today. Over the past few years, SAP technology and the technology of underlying infrastructure has evolved to the extent that there is a bewildering array of options that can be combined to deliver an SAP landscape that supports ever increasing business demands and changing requirements.
Many organisations that implemented SAP looked no further than the project at hand and the following BAU support operation. Consequentially, the SAP landscape of 'development', 'testing' and 'production', each residing on separate physical servers, is still prevalent today.
However, with increasing expectations and demands from the business along with cost constraints and the cliché of "delivering more for less", today's IT Directors can no longer afford to simply maintain the status-quo. IT departments must embrace concepts such as agility and sustainability in their strategies to reduce business exposure and risk.
Organisations now want to build on the base of core-SAP and deliver new and improved functionality to the user community, allowing true benefit to be derived from IT.
CIO's are expected to deliver technologies that deliver increased business benefits through enhanced efficiencies, innovative services to users and consumers, and an improvement in the effectiveness of the organisation. An effective CIO must know when to adopt new technology and when to extract the maximum from existing systems.
