Summary Leveraging the New Infrastructure offers a clear and accessible framework that will enable business managers - even those without a high-tech background - to make optimal decisions about the technology infrastructure that sustains their competitive edge. With Leveraging the New Infrastructure, managers can take control of the decisions that many have relegated to technical staff or vendors. Managers will learn how to assess their technology purchases and to tailor their IT portfolio to their firm's unique strategic objectives. This hands-on resource, complete with benchmarks and case studies, creates the common ground where corporate executives, general managers, and their technical advisors can meet, communicate their goals, and agree upon the best plan for achieving them
