There's still time to participate in Jinfo's Survey: Relationship Between IS and IT - now extended until 11th March.
This project is part of our current Research Focus: Strategic Alignment Between IS and IT. To gain an understanding of what "alignment" may (or may not) look like in organisations today, our survey asks how respondents' organisations are structured, how they relate to their counterparts in IT, and which areas of the business have significant influence over different types of projects.
To whet your appetite, here are a few observations from the responses to date:
For one item in the survey, we ask respondents to indicate how much control they and their staff have over these types of projects:
Later in the survey, we asked them to indicate how much control IT staff have over the same types of projects.
For each item, respondents could select from 1 = no control to 4 = extensive control.
The figure compares average ratings for five of the types named.
Whilst "alignment" doesn't mean "same amount of control", it is interesting to see the wide spread in averages for some of the projects Jinfo customers often tell us they find most frustrating:
In any area of information strategy, alignment between the content experts (IS) and the technology experts (IT) is an essential component of managing risks and making the most of emerging opportunities. Add your perspective on alignment by participating in our survey before the end of the day on Friday, 11th March.
A free copy of the resulting report will be sent to any participant who provides a valid email address. Take 10 minutes and complete the survey now »
