With money tight, IT departments in all sorts of organizations are looking for efficiencies and making systematic efforts to reduce non-productive redundancies. In addition to saving money, a hoped for byproduct is that a successful rationalization exercise will also remove disincentives and barriers to shared services, find reasonable levels of sourcing, improve the interoperability of applications, and optimize the delivery of services. Sounds like a tall order… What does it take to get IT rationalization done the first time and then keep at it? Is this a fundamental change, or will things go back to business as usual, once the economy improves?
