Empowering growth and innovation in a hybrid world

As the world cautiously reopens and IT leaders strive to build a seamless transition into hybrid working, the focus should be firmly on building a platform for future growth and innovation. In this new world, we all learnt quickly that disruption is a constant, and IT leaders must find effective and sustainable ways to lead through uncertainty. Despite the challenges in balancing IT agility with continued governance, and creating efficient automation against a backdrop of increasingly decentralized IT spend, the opportunities for innovation and growth remain significant.

Bridging the visibility gap is a critical step in empowering your teams for a hybrid world. According to Gartner, IT teams have around 80 percent of their budget tied up in the “run” side of their business, and empowering them to have visibility of how they can effectively optimize costs allows leaders to operate strategically and repurpose budget for mission critical digital transformation projects -essential in a hybrid work place. Equally there’s the matter of managing a hybrid IT environment, which in this next phase, is expected to move beyond cost optimization to optimizing resource via automated provisioning, governance and performance observability across distributed locations.

Join Snow Software and a select group of industry peers to discuss what’s next for IT in a hybrid world and how to fund growth to drive further transformation across your organization.

Snow Software is the global leader in technology intelligence solutions, ensuring the trillions spent on all forms of technology is optimized to drive maximum value.
