IT business transformation

IT business transformation is a thorough or dramatic change in the technologies and business processes a company employs to reach important business goals.

The term represents a shift in the role of technology beyond just business process management and business-IT alignment to that of IT business integration -- creating a work environment in which the IT department and the CIO are not merely installing technology to support business processes but are also using technology to shape business strategy.
