There is no doubt that Information Technology is one of the main enablers in organisational change. But which technology is most relevant to your business? Incremental, major or disruptive change? The list of enabling information technology is getting longer. The application of these technologies will allow you to decide if you are competitive and become relevant in the market. Organisations need to assess more frequently if new technology can be applied to ensure continuous improvements and for major re-engineering initiatives. But at the same time organisations also need to search for new opportunities with disruptive technologies. Using the latest technology offers a Company the opportunity to extend its core competence, leverage the existing infrastructure and resources to similar products, or generate a new business model based on the industry know-how that an organisation already has as an asset.
Companies may well be aware of the use of new technology and have a desire to implement it in order to increase their competiveness and survival in the marketplace. Similarly Companies often have the right level of experts and know-how to initiate such a change. However, Companies are still facing challenges when they start to question the status quo, and want to use and gain advantage from the latest technology. This is mainly due to the fact that Companies failed to develop an agile organisational culture with the ability to identify and respond effectively and efficiently to opportunities and fears, such as those being faced by Companies nowadays with the introduction of new disruptive technologies.
