Modern IT departments are struggling to balance needing to innovate while also maintaining legacy systems to keep the business running smoothly. As a result, one popular answer, as proposed by Gartner, has been to shift to bimodal IT, which separates the department into two camps, one that focuses on a more traditional side of IT and another that invests in fast paced innovation. A recent Forrester report suggests that bimodal IT only complicates things, and a unified department dubbed "business technology," or BT, would be the best solution for businesses that don't want to silo IT into two groups.
