As large companies evolve, IT strategies within communications infrastructure systems need to change to support the business goals of the company in harmony with the expanding IT marketplace. Successful IT Communications leaders in these companies focus on desired business outcomes to design and lead the change management cycles necessary to realign their systems. However, these communication infrastructure changes need to satisfy the following:
Budget constraints are a necessary part of life for businesses to stay competitive. Professionals in Procurement need to partner with IT Communication and Business leaders to find ways to achieve lower TCO and solid service while ensuring that internal capacity and system realignment efforts are met too.
IT Communication personnel are often constrained with an ever-growing demand for IT projects to enable desired business outcomes. Prioritizing these IT projects requires investment scrutiny guided ultimately by profitability and customer satisfaction. All too often communication infrastructure investments are perceived as secondary to business outcomes, so they suffer during the prioritization process. For example: employee communications, productivity tools, and telephone upgrades.
Supplier capabilities are endlessly expanding from the Everything as a Service (EaaS) paradigm. Today it seems as though everything is ‘in the cloud’ via the internet or can be delivered through a subscription service delivery model, including Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS). So, simply learning what suppliers have to offer can be daunting for IT Communications, Procurement, and Business leaders.
