Mark Bodman, HPE IT4IT Strategist, will be presenting as he did at The Open Group Summit (see bio below).

Without question, we are in a digital enterprise era. IT organizations face immense pressure to deliver results that improve business velocity. No longer can a CIO make decisions based on a single technology-driven goal or strategy. Instead, the choices are driven by the goals of IT service users. The demand for services is outpacing IT’s traditional service-delivery capabilities. Today’s tech-savvy workforce has little patience for traditional IT strategies, processes, and projects and is going around IT to commission services themselves. This shadow IT introduces issues around risk, regulatory compliance, and cost control.

To meet the demands of the digital enterprise, IT organizations must become co-creators of value with their users. We need an approach that enables modern-day service brokering, as well as the ability to secure and maintain traditional IT systems. This transformation requires IT Strategy to fundamentally alter its role and methods, reaching beyond technology into the culture and structure of the organization.

Understanding this challenge, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) worked with a number of Fortune 500 businesses to define a new operating model for IT. Through hundreds of interviews, and thousands of hours of data, product, and system analysis, HPE and our customers reached the conclusion that a better approach to running IT is required—one that is user-driven and value-centric.

The four value streams:

1. Strategy to Portfolio – Drive IT portfolio to business innovation

2. Requirement to Deploy – Build what the business wants, when it wants it

3. Request to Fulfill – Catalog, fulfill, and manage service usage

4. Detect to Correct – Anticipate and resolve production issues

HPE has mapped the majority of HPE’s Software portfolio to IT4IT, so we can effectively fulfill IT4IT. Click here for details.
