The Deloitte’s Debate:

“Almost-enterprise” Applications: CIO Threat or Opportunity?

Almost-enterprise applications are tempting, especially to business managers who can leapfrog IT roadblocks with the swipe of a credit card. Should CIOs stop them now? Or should they lead the way?

The cloud revolution is spawning a new generation of productivity, collaboration and mobile/social connectivity applications that some managers see as quick-and-easy solutions to some of their biggest problems. 
But many CIOs recognize that these types of applications may solve a short-term business problem only to create a long-term IT headache. Should CIOs clamp down before it’s too late? Or should they welcome these almost-enterprise apps into the fold? Do we still develop the in-house multi-year project?

1. Streamline the process for strategic agility: For the large-scale, multi-year planning project, we may not only ask weather any alternatives (such as cloud, partner.,etc) solutions available rather than completely in-house building, even if we have to,  the best practice is to break it down into a few smaller projects with interim destination and shorter life cycle, it could be tactical in today's dynamic environment.

2. Application Modernization: How to mange the application portfolio wisely via leveraging the value, the life cycle, the culture and the latest technology.

3. Cloud Solution: When you talk about business first, the CIO may also concern about the "Shadow IT" or "overly-spoiled internal customers" with overwhelming latest technologies, or the business may purchase their own Cloud base solution without notifying IT, so, how to leverage the budget with customer' requirement or how to embed the radical transparency into the radical transformation could be the other challenge for today's organization.
