Get better value from your IT investments

For 40 years companies have been investing heavily in IT solutions and there is an overwhelming and commonly-held sense that organisations rarely achieve value for money from their investments. The answer is not to stop investing, nor is it to keep buying what Gartner (IBM, Accenture etc.) says to buy. I believe the answer can only be found by stepping away from the analysts and vendors with their vested interests and looking inside for both the questions and the answers, with some help from someone who has worked on both sides.
