Organizing IT Tasks and Processes



Pay per view is in this case the same as pay for use: IT organizations are organized in such a way, they are able to respond flexibly to the demand. IBM calls this on demand computing, HP speaks of the adaptive enterprise, Microsoft talks about the dynamic systems initiative and Gartners’ term is the real time infrastructure. It all boils down to the deliberate structuring of the IT tasks in organizations in such a manner that it is possible to change capacity flexibly in IT facilities; one runs relatively little risk of the facilities being too expensive or that they do not work. The predicted result: in 2006 there will be 30% less money to be spent on facilities as comparable to 2004.
