This eLearning course outlines the importance of following a solid prescriptive reference architecture and discusses, in detail, the challenges faced by IT managers in the age of digital disruption.

Section three offers a much closer look at the potential benefits of employing the IT4IT Standard, and in section four you will have the opportunity to further investigate the benefits of the standard according to your role in the organization.
