BOOK EXCERPT:

Business-Driven Research & Development demonstrates how science and technology can be managed in order to meet well defined business directives. The book argues that it should be a fundamental business premise that the primary role of research and development is to fulfil strategic objectives, within a framework of time and cost targets. The book examines the traditional disconnection between research and development and the market place, and presents the means to derive competitive advantage through overcoming it.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This volume constitutes the proceedings of the 4th Working Conference on Practice-Driven Research on Enterprise Transformation (PRET), held in Gdańsk, Poland, on June 27, 2012, as the industrial track of the 24th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE 2012). Restructuring, divesting, improving performance, and merging are among the usual transformation activities that enterprises conduct to provide answers to the challenging demands put on them. To foster the much-needed debate between researchers and practitioners on these topics, the number of papers accepted for PRET is kept low, providing the authors and the audience with ample time to engage in discussions about both the practical implications of results and the theoretical underpinnings of phenomena observed in industrial practice. This year, five papers were selected after careful review, and each paper is between 20 and 25 pages long, to allow for the presentation of details. The topics covered include enterprise architecture, business and IT alignment, and business process management and evaluation.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Business organizations, both public and private, are constantly challenged to innovate and generate real value. CIOs are uniquely well-positioned to seize this opportunity and adopt the role of business transformation partner, helping their organizations to grow and prosper with innovative, IT-enabled products, services and processes. To succeed in this, however, the IT function needs to manage an array of inter-related and inter-dependent disciplines focused on the generation of business value. In response to this need, the Innovation Value Institute, a cross-industry international consortium, developed the IT Capability Maturity FrameworkTM (IT-CMFTM). This second edition of the IT Capability Maturity FrameworkTM (IT-CMFTM) is a comprehensive suite of tried and tested practices, organizational assessment approaches, and improvement roadmaps covering key IT capabilities needed to optimize value and innovation in the IT function and the wider organization. It enables organizations to devise more robust strategies, make better-informed decisions, and perform more effectively, efficiently and consistently.IT-CMF is:• An integrated management toolkit covering 36 key capability management disciplines, with organizational maturity profiles, assessment methods, and improvement roadmaps for each. • A coherent set of concepts and principles, expressed in business language, that can be used to guide discussions on setting goals and evaluating performance.• A unifying (or umbrella) framework that complements other, domain-specific frameworks already in use in the organization, helping to resolve conflicts between them, and filling gaps in their coverage. • Industry/sector and vendor independent. IT-CMF can be used in any organizational context to guide performance improvement.• A rigorously developed approach, underpinned by the principles of Open Innovation and guided by the Design Science Research methodology, synthesizing leading academic research with industry practitioner expertise‘IT-CMF provides us with a structured and systematic approach to identify the capabilities we need, a way to assess our strengths and weaknesses, and clear pathways to improve our performance.’ Suresh Kumar,Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer, BNY Mellon‘To successfully respond to competitive forces, organizations need to continually review and evolve their existing IT practices, processes, and cultural norms across the entire organization. IT-CMF provides a structured framework for them to dothat.’ Christian Morales, Corporate Vice President and General Manager EMEA, Intel Corporation‘We have successfully applied IT-CMF in over 200 assignments for clients. It just works. Or, as our clients confirm, it helps them create more value from IT.’ Ralf Dreischmeier, Senior Partner and Managing Director, The Boston Consulting Group‘By using IT-CMF, business leaders can make sure that the tremendous potential ofinformation technology is realized in their organizations.’ Professor Philip Nolan, President, Maynooth University‘I believe IT-CMF to be comprehensive and credible. Using the framework helps organizations to objectively identify and confirm priorities as the basis for driving improvements.’Dr Colin Ashurst, Senior Lecturer and Director of Innovation, Newcastle University Business School

BOOK EXCERPT:

This volume constitutes the proceedings of the 6th Working Conference on Practice-Driven Research on Enterprise Transformation (PRET), held in Utrecht, The Netherlands, on June 6, 2013, co-located with the Enterprise Transformation Track of the 21st European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS). Successful enterprises have well-defined managerial responsibilities and understandable project priorities and enable their processes to be sufficiently agile, even improvisational and continuously changing. They do not solely rely on only mechanistic or purely organic processes and structures, but see enterprise transformation as a combination of deliberate and organic change. This year's papers represent this hybrid view. Moreover, most of them are based on practical cases, which will further contribute to our understanding of enterprise transformation. The eight papers presented in this volume were allocated to tracks on: practical experiences with methods and techniques; cases in enterprise transformation; and enterprise architecture in practice.
