The IT landscape is shifting at a rapid pace, and having the right IT approach can determine the level of success an organisation achieves. As the market has shifted, the value pyramid has flipped.
Traditionally, businesses received the majority of value by smart architecting of infrastructure, which provided a platform for applications to live. The data layer sat on top of the applications, and, while strategy was necessary, it was not always what drove technology initiatives.
With changes in delivery models, such as mobility and cloud computing, featuring standardised platforms the need for delivering services in real time and to any customer anywhere they are, the infrastructure first model is no longer as useful as it once was.
At Leap, we believe that understanding business strategy and goals are the first steps before implementing technology.
