This post is an excerpt from our guide: “10x Your IT Operational Efficiency: A CIO’s Guide to IT Automation.”
Lately, it seems like the only constant for IT is change. From the pandemic, to labor market shifts, to inflation and fears of a recession, the last few years have been a wild ride for everyone. A recent Gartner survey shows that despite the current economic turmoil, 69% of CEOs are still planning to increase spending on digital technologies. However, this comes with high expectations for IT. CIOs are being asked to accelerate time to value on these new investments, which include SaaS and other cloud-based services.
While spending may be projected to increase, no one is immune from the ongoing mandate of operational efficiency. While IT has long been pushed to be as lean and cost-efficient as possible, other departments and processes are now being asked to improve operational efficiency as well.
IT is still primarily responsible for a SaaS tech stack that just keeps getting larger, but they are now also increasingly responsible for business-critical digital transformation initiatives. This places a big burden on IT teams, who almost never get headcount even as expectations increase.
IT leaders must find a way to keep up ongoing, day-to-day IT tasks and tickets while implementing new tools and solutions that drive greater business value.
This is why strategies and tools that improve operational efficiency have become more important than ever.
