Today’s IT model is flawed – the organization and management structure has not evolved to meet the demands of the 21st century.  The enterprise IT organization of the future must be more focused on the business and satisfying the customer rather than tactical projects and the most recent technology.  By 2010, enterprise IT organizations will have finally figured out what the model should look like to take advantage of a global environment where collaboration is essential.  In this vokeStream Future Watch, we identify some of the issues enterprise IT management and organizations must be aware of and address to satisfy their business customers.  Moving the model from a decidedly silo based organization to one that is customer focused for the 21st century is the ultimate goal for enterprise IT organizations to achieve.

I thought of this Tommy Tutone 1982 one hit wonder as I wrestled with the latest machinations of my mobile carrier. And, quite honestly, no blog is complete without some overt reference to 1980’s nonsensical music!

Let me get to my problem. I spend quite a bit of time on my bicycle. These rides are not just around the block to visit friends, rather they are Lance Armstrong inspired long distance events of 100 miles or more. One minor problem, I don’t have the luxury of having Johan Bruynell and the Disco team trailing me to provide food and support. Without the resources of the Team Discovery, I have to take my own food as well as communication device. This means a light weight, durable, and reliable cell phone. Easy problem to solve, right? Wrong!!!! I recently had to expand my Cingular calling plan to a family plan – even though I am the only person on the plan. So why does a family of one need a multi-number plan? Good question – here’s the problem and the solution…

All are painfully aware of the dismal statistics on software projects success rates. Recent reports show that the situation is not trending for the better, and continue to point to poor requirements as the leading cause. When you peel back the covers it’s really no wonder – the discipline of Requirements Definition is not formalized, most are trying to do this work using only word processors and spreadsheets, and the role of requirements author is anything but standardized or supported.

The good news is that there is significant movement in the industry on all these fronts of late. Professional organizations are emerging for this discipline and are growing rapidly, powerful purpose-built tools for Requirements Definition now exist, and the role of the Business Analyst is rapidly solidifying. This presentation provides a snapshot of these new developments and shares some results from a recent study on the role of the Business Analyst.

We invite Business Analysts or anyone interested in requirements to take the survey! Read More...
