LOGICA, ORCHESTRA NETWORKS AND ILOG have delivered a new white paper about the governance in the context of IS restructuring

Are you interested in the IT reasons for the financial crisis?

To foster a sustainable growth, which will be able to keep the complexity of modern organizations under control, politicians and upper managers must take IT into account in a strategic way.

IT for crisis

Rather than reinforcing the ability to manage complexity, IT Specialists reproduce obsolete IS evolution models by stacking up software layers over existing IS. This approach reinforces the inability of IS to face supplemental business complexity.

In this paper (PDF, 100 Ko) Pierre Bonnet, founder of the S-IT-A community, shows that existing IT solutions have become a time bomb that will prime when the absorbable level of complexity is exeeced.

Once the bomb is ready to explode, the reaction time to regain control of complexity could be too long and the effort too expensive to stop damage.

The community’s book

The international version of our book is foreseen for October 2008, ISTE and Wiley publisher. We are pleased to present below the temporay description, already available in the ISTE and Wiley’s Science and Technology catalog 2008 (click on this picture to enlarge).

A turning point for infrastructure software vendors

Software vendors in EI-BPM, business intelligence, data integration (ETL, data quality), and BRMS are facing a considerable industry shift that could induce a downfall:  their offerings can no longer guarantee sufficient growth in a market where XML standards smooth out the specifics and projects are increasing in dimension and scope.

It is no longer enough to supply technologies improving existing assets, but rather solutions designed to adaptively restructure the entire system.
