A recent post, “Pay as You Benefit‘: A New Enterprise IT Strategy,” describes an incremental approach to new information development activities premised on low-risk, affordable deployment chunks. The strategy is based on MIKE2.0’s Semantic Enterprise composite solution offering, and is a natural expression of MIKE2.0’s incremental deployment methodology. The strategy is especially well suited to the areas of information and knowledge management and information integration.http://smartdatacollective.com/node/24814/edit

The pivotal difference in the ‘Pay as You Benefit‘ strategy is a shift from a closed world to an open world approach. Not only does this shift negate past IT hurdles of completeness and comprehensiveness — which have raised the stakes for IT initiatives for decades and are arguably a root cause of many failed projects — but it also is more suitable for enterprises needing to integrate outside information. Open world approaches can also comfortably embrace closed world ones, while the inverse is not true.

Have you approached your enterprise IT strategy in a similar way?  Thoughts and comments welcome.
