Bi-modal IT – Facilitating Your Journey – Part 2

In our previous article, we discussed the deployment types within IT which tend to fall under two modes, known as Bimodal IT (read part one at bi-modal-it-facilitating-your-journey.html in this post we will discuss how these can be adopted from the perspective of the end user and how we can facilitate the transition from Mode 1 to Mode 2 applications and solutions.

The challenge of Mode 2 is its shear rate of change which can have quite an impact to the end users of the solution, plus provide an administrative overhead to IT staff whom now have to manage two modes of release cycles to their end users. It is often timed too that this change in development and deployment comes a the same time other transformation projects are also underway. So now is the best time to evaluate which direction you need to take your end user services. We have all seen the change from main frame computing, to distributed computing, to VDI (or mainframe in colour) to now the adoption of Cloud / SaaS based applications. However the difference now being – unlike previous generations of IT – that all of these exist at the same time, of which the endpoint device has to fully support. With the administrative overheads, complexity and costs all increasing, businesses are faced with a challenge – do we adopt Mode 2 and innovate (taking on the risks discussed) or continue with the lower risk Mode 1 in the fear that the business is left behind the curve. Its not all doom and gloom, there are options available to easily support these modes.
