Speed of innovation was a victim of IT backlog. And business stakeholders were anxious because brands were increasingly at risk in a digital world. SaaS DIY and freemium options, they contended, created more noise because they stirred sandbox-level excitement with toy prototypes rather than demonstrate success in their context, leveraging proven best practices in a production environment.
Gartner, in fact, has articulated an elegant architecture to address this strategic technology conundrum. They call it “Bimodal IT”. McKinsey calls it “two-speed IT”. Simply put, systems of engagement require rapid innovation that must cooperate alongside systems of record that require robust, slow-changing cadence. Moreover, the two layers must interoperate through open interfaces – the engagement layer rapidly delivering innovative and differentiated capabilities, leveraging (as needed) data and context from the Systems of Record that must remain rock solid.
