SocialIT can be your pathway to innovation

Today Iā€™m focusing on reason number three in our series on why Social IT is essential to the success of IT operations: Social IT paves the way to innovation by greasing the wheels of collaboration

Despite all efforts to the contrary, IT organizations today still spend an awful lot of time simply trying to maintain their systems. At the end of the day there is little left over for innovation or the exploration of new ideas on how IT can contribute to improving the business.

Social IT can help free IT professionals to go beyond putting out fires and keeping heads above water. By capturing, sharing, and leveraging knowledge through the use of Wikipedia-style crowd-sourcing and Twitter or Facebook-style news feeds, IT teams are more efficient and can innovate based on the collective contributions of their colleagues. When you understand Social IT as the enhancement of traditional IT processes with in-context collaboration to improve efficiency and accuracy of IT decision-making and actions, you see clearly how this approach can make everyone far more productive.

Done right, SocialIT has the power to transform IT operations and usher in a new era of collaboration and streamlined decision making—so we as IT professionals can go beyond day-to-day, routine tasks and realize our full potential.
