It doesn’t matter if you’re a 150 person IT shop at billion dollar company, or an army-of-one IT warrior at a non-profit… today’s IT organizations face similar problems:
Tyranny of the urgent
The loudest business unit, executive, manager or squeakiest project gets your attention; everything else must wait. With diluted effectiveness, many big items get just a little attention as you multi-task — a skill that computers excel at, but humans do not. Instead of being strategic, tactical, and proactive, you can only react to things like PCI, HIPAA, SOX, internal audits, and incidents.
Stuck in a rut, can’t get ahead
You’re chasing ghosts, with little sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. Why did someone try to login with a disabled account? Did your SQL server really make an outbound connection to the Internet at 2AM? Who uploaded the video to YouTube that’s got the CEO so upset? Mixed-in with the rest of the chaos, there’s no time to find an answer. Tomorrow will bring more open loops and little closure. Rinse and repeat.
Office politics and geographic location
Work is often done in isolation. You, your peers, and management have no visibility over your systems or other factors that impact your realm. Blinded in your respective “stove pipes”, there’s redundant effort, obviously non-compliant systems, “surprise” initiatives, and a host of other maladies that waste company dollars and time. You’re confident that creating a unified view of all the stove pipes would get everyone on the same page, but don’t have the time, energy, or support to pull it off.
