Desktop Virtualization: Steps for Success Part 3

What is bimodal IT?

Bimodal IT is the concept where two distinct IT methodologies need to exist in the same time at the same company.

Traditional IT is focused on efficiency, predictability and a continued support of core business needs. Traditional IT continues to develop the long-term plans and goals, manages technology budgets, and takes a disciplined approach to deployments.

Agile IT is focused on being responsive and flexible enough to support fast-moving, innovative initiatives that are critical to digital business success. Agile IT rolls out today's updates, changes, and quickly evolving technologies such as cloud and mobility.

IT operations is at an unprecedented inflection point as it faces tension between increased technology complexity, operational risk, and the need to drive more business innovation.

  • Old era approaches to infrastructure and operations management have not kept up. IT operations teams thus face greater risk and an inability to deliver on the promise of these new technologies as they spend their time, budget, and resources on just keeping the lights on.
  • New era infrastructure technologies such as cloud, virtualization, and mobility add complexity to IT operations, and make it harder for IT to perform, maintain security, and deliver business value.
  • IT will be left behind if it does not change how the current norm to a bimodal approach. They need to adapt in order to move to the next era of digitalization, and drive new business models and innovation with more speed.

A two-speed, bimodal approach to managing and exploiting information technology is when one mode focuses on further industrializing IT, exploiting emerging cloud services and automation, and building on and extending the solid foundation of tried, trusted, rigorous processes, methodologies and services. The other mode seeks to develop a more agile and innovative capability, culture and approach to leadership that can meet the emerging challenges of digitalization. The benefit to the enterprise is a capability to move more quickly, manage greater uncertainty and adopt a more collaborative style in the selective areas in which such an approach is appropriate and worth the additional risk.
