Mapping Bimodal IT – Classification of your applications

Mode 1

Systems of Record

Low rate of change / Designed for stability and predictability

Mode 1 & Mode 2

Systems of Differentiation

Fast moving but fully controlled long term investments / Where goal is understood but path may not be

Mode 2

Systems of Innovation

Experimental and tightly controlled time and budget / Quick to succeed or fail

Cloud Migration – types of projects to consider

Systems of Differentiation

Product upgrades / App reconfigurations / Autonomous components / Testing scenarios / Product integrations / Management tools

Systems of Innovation

Proof of Concepts / Pilot projects / Prototypes / Application evaluations / Throw away products / New product developments
