Today, information technology (IT) managers and their teams must deal with a more complex environment due to the continuing growth of data, and of requests from mobile and sensory devices that need to interact with the enterprise. IT managers must make choices about how to best prepare for the future to meet these service-driven demands. They must become proactive and agile, while getting the most out of their team’s skills and experience.
