Paradigm Shifts and Disruption Ė How IT Will Lead By Shifting to a Service Driven Model

Tom Coleman, CIO/CPO, Sloan Valve Company

Every decade we see massive changes in the IT industry. In the 80s we saw desktop computing flourish, and progressed to a client server model in the 90s. Mobile computing grew quickly in 2000 and beyond. 2010 presents a variety of technologies that may deliver IT efficiencies on a grand scale. Technologies such as desktop virtualization, cloud computing, mobile application delivery and others may be game changers.

But how can IT take advantage of these game changers? How can this fast paced innovation be a catalyst for a paradigm shift and transform the IT organization?

In this session, you will learn from two senior IT executives as to how they have been transforming their organizations in the wake of massive industry transformation.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • What is a paradigm shift
  • How to anticipate and recognize a potential paradigm shift
  • How you need to change your approach and way of thinking
  • How to take advantage of disruptive/innovative technologies as a catalyst for a paradigm shift
  • How to transform your organization from a service delivery model to total integration to the business
  • How you strategically differentiate yourself and your organization through this transformation

What can we learn from history to help us cope with the increasingly technical demands of our employees, customers and marketplaces?

  • How to stay relevant to your business
