“Here is a blank check. Spend whatever you need on IT migration and modernization of our entire IT environment right away”, said no one ever.
IT Migration: Bridging Your Today IT to Your ‘Someday’ IT
There are simply too many new game-changing technologies and platforms to adopt all at once. Until ‘someday’ arrives you have to prioritize where and how you spend your limited IT budget. What IT considers ‘legacy’ is likely considered an ‘investment’ by their counterparts in Finance. And as we all know, Finance and the C-suite insist on protecting their investments. So rather than a blank check and a massive rip and replace exercise you will be challenged to keep your current legacy environment optimized while you pursue a better IT future. But how?
