This needs to be correlated with the value-chain function and the
corresponding products or services, differentiated by business type
(liquidity, risk transference, advice), business importance (margin, labor,
Today’s CIO organizations face a complex array of challenges in managing
the Business Platform (the group of applications and services that implement
the Business Value Chain (BVC)).
The business expects technology innovation as a business differentiator,

Virtualization is the topic du jour in IT today. The technology is cool, the
attributes are slick and now the stock market even is tracking it. The
