IT streamlining requires a thorough understanding of both the business needs and the possible array of solutions that could satisfy it.
"The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency." —Bill Gates
With IT streamlining you achieve more with less effort. Streamlining leverages technology to track, monitor, automate, integrated and differentiate. Automation by itself does not guarantee an increase in efficiency; it may, in fact, result in less efficiency. Establishing standards and aligning processes to core principles leads to streamlining.
IT Streamlining In Your Business
The job of the analyst is to envisage the ideal solution and then provide the relevant technology to building blocks to make that solution possible. To do this, they need to thoroughly understand what your business needs, as well as the recommended solutions. These solutions should never be limited to existing or well-known packaged offerings, as they may not provide a 100% answer.
