November 2016

As 2016 draws to a close we are naturally looking at what is on the agenda for 2017.  What is apparent is that the business environment most of us are operating in will change faster than ever and the CIO's leadership is critical to an organistions ability to succesfully anticipate and respond to emerging trends.

Business Aspect attended Gartner's recent symposium in the Gold Coast where a number of trends dominated the conversation.  In our lead article Managing Partner David Lennon shares his thoughts on the trends that will be next big disruptors for our clients.

Business Aspect Partner for CIO Advisory, Carsten Larsen, has had several blogs published in recently about his new approach to ICT Strategy.  If you missed them please check out his paper on understanding the three pillars of ICT Strategy below. Plus learn more about our award winning projects (Department of Enviroment and Heritage Protection) and staff (Robyn Bailey).
