not robust as believed. So today business management no longer has free
rein to spend on information technology with the pre-crisis notion that each
newly conceived project would bring in new profits.

inward facing cost cutting to ensure bottom-line sustainability and cancelling
all initiatives, but to focus on top-line growth and use low cost innovation to
These business leaders have strong boards that back them in their
quest to rise above the status quo and seize operational opportunities to
differentiate themselves from their lineup of competitors.
They see this time of global recovery as one of huge advantage with
their visionless competitors holding back on hiring any technology enablers,
cancelling fertile business initiatives, putting project partnerships on hold,
