The most successful international development organizations no longer leave information technology (IT) behind the scenes. They know that in order to be “fully global and fully local,” development organizations must make IT a priority as the glue that holds the enterprise together and makes mission goals a reality.
Technology innovation and lifecycle management are the building blocks of successful development enterprises and programs. This runs the gamut—from strategy and modernization, business architecture and application design through implementation management, testing and change management. International development organizations can harness IT to lower costs, increase operational efficiency and improve delivery predictability. Now more than ever, IT powers the future, bringing new agility and insights to help the development community collaborate, serve and make a lasting difference.
