Change Management IT exists to equip change management teams to support perpetual enterprise change; creating an agile enterprise. Learn more about it here…
Change Management IT is a broad category of application software used to facilitate enterprise change and improvement. It helps organizations to adapt to change by anticipating needs, modifying or displacing incumbent software applications. In the context of application software development, change management involves tracking and managing changes to artefacts, such as code and requirements as part of software development life-cycle (SDLC).
How Organizational Change ‘Has Changed’
At one time, an organizational change was a rare thing. Business models rarely altered and the structure of organizations – i.e. how organizational structures were designed and resourced – had no need to change. Once people were assigned roles in the organization, they rarely moved beyond their role or department. Not today. The business models organizations operate are changing frequently and rapidly.
This is because, in a digital age, the structure of markets and the nature of competition. Many new forms of competition emerge from beyond the traditional players in any given market. We are seeing retailers selling holidays, telecoms contracts and financial services products, utilities and automotive manufacturers selling data and online retailers selling everything! In such a tumultuous market for products and services, suppliers have to respond to change faster. This means organizations are facing near-constant organizational restructuring.
It’s not just people and processes, but technology too is having to adapt faster and more often to change. This means traditional IT platforms are being displaced by Low Code or Codeless enterprise software application platforms that are designed to adapt to change constantly, and offer productivity enabling tooling to serve the needs of change managers orchestrating change.
How Change Management IT Differs to Traditional Enterprise IT
Enterprise IT created for Systems of Record use cases – such as Financial, Manufacturing Resource Planning, Human Capital Management, and Customer Relationship Management software – is designed to impose best practice approaches to commonly performed business-critical processes within the enterprise. It is unusual for Systems-of-Record applications to deliver a competitive advantage because they fundamentally install common blueprints and ways of working that all competitors in a market end up supporting. In contrast, change management software exists to stay in-tune with enterprise needs for information processing as business models evolve over time.
The digital age has seen a dramatic increase in the pace of change in business model designs. Whereas firms a decade ago wouldn’t change their business model more than once in a decade, today, organizations will review business model designs at least once every two years, if not more.
Advantages of Change Management IT
Change Management IT equips individuals or departments charged with business improvement – and command over the change management process within an enterprise – with the necessary tools to evolve information systems and to support the change process itself.
It brings the following benefits to adopting businesses:
- Faster pace of change
- Lower cost transformations in IT systems
- Less organizational friction
- Greater democratization of IT
- More adaptive IT
- Improvement competitiveness through faster-time-to-market of new customer value propositions, together with lower operating costs through more efficient systems and processes (and less manual processing)
