Automatiseringgids: True agility
In the Automatiseringgids, Marc Lankhorst en Jeroen van Grondelle argue that true agility can only be achieved by combining different techniques and methods.
Companies need to operate quickly and flexibly. IT services must support this. But how?
We should not be trying to find the next big sensation, say Marc Lankhorst and Jeroen van Grondelle, but should be combining a number of things in a sensible way. It has become increasingly easier to set up an IT landscape using various standard platforms. And business knowledge is becoming much easier to describe in models of products and services.

Coping with the regulatory burden
Citizens, business and governments are subject to an overwhelming number of regulations. This complexity of regulations, expressed in many different laws, directives, policy statements, etc., is the consequence of the complexity of our society and it is unlikely that the amount of regulations can be decreased significantly without losing the quality of the existing fine-grained steering instrument. Should we accept the resulting administrative burden and perceived regulatory load as fact of life? Our answer to this question is: No.

Knowledge - guaranteed and stored
Many organizations are turning to knowledge management to secure the knowledge in their organizations. In doing this, the aim is to guarantee that all stakeholders in the organization use the right knowledge properly in their daily work. Therefore, in many of the knowledge management initiatives the focus is therefore on recording knowledge and experiences.

Control with insight
Increased competition is forcing organizations to quickly adapt their business processes and associated infrastructure. In practice, this means an increase in the complexity and the dynamic within organizations. Viewed from the relationship between business and ICT, continuous harmonization is required between the business processes, the control paradigm and ICT.

Organizations in the industrialized world are facing growing competitive strength from less industrialized countries, more discerning and demanding consumers, and technological developments.

Framework for the knowledge worker
The economic development of the Netherlands is aimed at setting up a knowledge economy. The emphasis is on the creation and application of knowledge. It is precisely the application of knowledge that creates added value. One precondition for this is the availability of the requisite relevant information on time, in the right context, and to the right person in the right quantity.
