Consumerisation and User Centric IT Delivery

Consumerisation and User Centric IT Delivery

Within this area, we look at the unilateral acquisition (independently of IT) of equipment, software and services by departments and individuals; a growing trend as technology becomes more accessible and users become increasingly tech savvy. A key question we are researching here is how such activity can be enabled, monitored, managed and (where necessary) constrained to balance the interests of individual users with the needs of the overall business.

In parallel with the above, we are also investigating how user preferences can be better incorporated into IT related decision making, with a view to enhancing user satisfaction and business efficiency. The aim here is to reduce the perceived need for employees to make their own technology arrangements, which in turn promotes harmony and minimises complexity-related cost and risk.
