Top three ini­tia­tives planned for 2014 are: a. IT-en­abled busi­ness trans­for­ma­tion: We will be fo­cus­ing on the busi­ness projects that have a large value po­ten­tial for busi­ness in terms of process op­ti­miza­tion, cost re­duc­tion, prod­uct dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion, etc., and en­sure that they are en­abled by IT. Our tar­get will be the sec­tion, which is con­sid­ered the last mile be­tween the en­ter­prise wide ERPs to the end users and is gen­er­ally the gap where there are a lot of man­ual pro­cesses, which adds to the la­tency of the busi­ness pro­cesses. b. En­ter­prise in­fra­struc­ture as­sets op­ti­miza­tion: We will also be fo­cus­ing on the as­pect of “sweat­ing of as­sets” that has been in­vested in by the or­ga­ni­za­tion and thereby try to en­hance the ROI of the in­vest­ments made. Reach and range is a pa­ram­e­ter that will be con­sid­ered as a suc­cess fac­tor when we look at the im­ple­men­ta­tion of in­fra­struc­ture as­sets (hard­ware and soft­ware) in the en­ter­prise. c. In­for­ma­tion and data se­cu­rity: With the ir­refutable trends thrown to­wards IT by busi­ness in the form of BYOD, ap­pli­ca­tion mo­bil­ity, so­cial me­dia, cloud, Big Data, etc., IT will have to fo­cus on the in­for­ma­tion and data se­cu­rity to en­sure that the con­fi­den­tial­ity of the cor­po­rate data is pro­tected. There is a need to look at se­cu­rity from a com­pletely dif­fer­ent view­point, with more fo­cus on pre­dictable an­a­lyt­ics.
