Despite their best intentions, business and IT are in conflict. This is both strange and unfortunate. Strange because modern business is fundamentally based on IT and as such the idea of business and the idea of IT have reached the point of singularity; unfortunate because the productive energies of the organizations are dissipated in internal conflict.

Although some organizations have done better than others, issues still persist. With data, however, it is high time we banish this conflict to the dustbin and explore what a harmonious structural relationship between business and IT can offer an organization in terms of growth, competitive advantage, and agility.
