  • HIT™ (Holistic Information Technology)

              Change in Balance - March 2008


              The HIT™ approach the problem of tactical and operational change, whether for 

              improvement or opportunity pursuits in a holistic fashion rather than through a

              series of disconnected elements that are tentatively attached to a frail IT

              backbone.  The dynamics, technologies, and resource shifts inhibits the ability of

              strategic roadmaps as a tool for change.  HIT™ breaks this tradition through the

              use of dynamic monitoring and adjustment modeling.  Global, multinational

              companies can utilize information warehousing technologies to amplify precision

              but open up areas of business opportunity.  Rather than IT being a business

              burden it becomes a dynamic ROI contributor.  One might view it as the Fung Sui

              for IT, Posturing-Positioning-Harmony... a balance".
