SogetiLabs gathers distinguished technology leaders from around the Sogeti world. It is an initiative explaining not how IT works, but what IT means for business.
The past decade has seen a fundamental shift in the axis of IT innovation, from technological innovation to business innovation. Previously, new IT systems were introduced at the high end of the economic spectrum by government and enterprise investment, before trickling down to small and medium businesses, the home office and ultimately consumers.
It would be simplistic and dangerous to assume that this so-called "consumerization of enterprise IT" has no business relevance. The CIO no longer has the monopoly over IT systems and their applications; from the office of the CEO to the factory floor, professionals are using technology in unexpected ways to drive productivity gains for the enterprise.
