In today's economic climate, where trust between business and IT in most companies has never been more fragile, we have to find the possibilities to completely rethink IT, and transform it into a strategic asset for our companies. But this won't be an incremental change; this will be a fundamental paradigm shift - and this book can be your guidebook.

· What is business/IT Fusion and what is the difference with business/IT Alignment?
· How will the new Fusion of business and IT function, particularly in its relationship with the business customers and with its suppliers?

· What are the tools and mechanisms to make Fusion work? How can we implement 'intelligent governance' and move from budget thinking to portfolio thinking?
· How can I use the concept of architecture and turn this into a business instrument?
· How will we staff these new IT organizations? What type of skills do we need, and how will we attract them?
· How can I rebuild the image of IT, and market technology innovation to the business?
