IT & Telecommunication

Nearly 5,000 respondents in the IT & Telecommunication sector have already participated in a study through the HPO Insight™ improvement tool. These organizations know that improvement and innovation is required to improve performance. The IT & Telecommunication sector is facing a period in which the competition of young and foreign entrants quickly changes the market.

The five HPO pillars are made up of 35 validated HPO characteristics. Below, you can find the average scores in the IT & Telecommunication sector:

Quality of Management

Openness & Action Orientation

Long-Term Orientation

Continuous Improvement & Renewal

Quality of Employees

Many developments and trends, which were initially seen as an isolated phenomenon, intervene in other developments. There is a movement going on that no longer lets itself be held back and that will have far-reaching consequences for the way we do business and how we live. For example, do not be surprised if, in the future, a serious competitor suddenly presents itself while only being 14 years old. The kid has single-handedly developed an application that puts your entire business model upside down. The kid does not want to sell it but wants to enter into a joint venture with you. Alternatively, do not be surprised if next year, Google and Microsoft suddenly impose an IT infrastructure tax on you. Threatening? Stunning? Absolutely! Nevertheless, it is also beautiful because with every paradigm shift, new diamonds are exposed.

These are the future trends that you will have to face:

  • The new rhythm is the algorithm
  • Cloud preferably in-house
  • The future is ‘bimodal’
  • Security: focus on rights management and monitoring
  • IT as influencer
  • The post-app area is coming
  • (Big) data: Very important
  • Expect the unexpected
