Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be
regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning.
The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a
business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their
customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business
(LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy.
IDC believes that this emerging environment is to date still highly undefined, even as
businesses must make critical decisions. Should businesses develop in-house or use VARs,
systems integrators, or consultants? Should they deploy on-premise, in the cloud, or in some
hybrid form? Can they use existing infrastructure, or do AI applications and deep learning

Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly
every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile,
social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders
are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of

that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does.

Some would have you believe that ITIL® is on its way out. That it’s no longer relevant in
today’s fast-paced digital environment.
But ITIL still holds many timeless truths. As a set of best practice recommendations, ITIL
provides a solid foundation and a common language for IT service management (ITSM)
in these rapidly changing times.
The problems arise when ITIL is seen as dogma. If you apply it too literally—as rules to
follow, instead of recommendations to consider—ITIL will slow you down. You’re left
struggling to keep up with ever-increasing user demands, not to mention your enterprise’s
need to modernize and digitally transform.
If you suspect ITIL is slowing you down, read on to uncover the seven ways ITIL has
commonly been misapplied—and gain guidance on how you can go faster, while still
upholding ITIL principles.
