A recent survey conducted by techconsult on behalf of Campana & Schott shows that in 44.5 percent of companies, business and IT are still not working properly together. This means that these companies are wasting valuable potential. The survey gathered the status quo of IT among 200 IT executives from companies of various industries and sizes in Germany. It addresses the central question of how IT can initiate and drive forward future-oriented projects without giving away performance and know-how.
The current economic situation requires companies to be flexible and innovative to remain competitive. Especially in times of crisis, companies review their processes for efficiency potential. Digitization offers the opportunity not only to maintain one's status quo, but also to increase competitiveness - if IT and business work together. Instead of drowning in day-to-day business, IT managers need to network with the business departments and ask strategic business questions.
